    Botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs) are produced by Clostridium botulinum and cause the fatal disease botulism, a flaccid paralysis of the muscle. BoNTs are released together with several auxiliary proteins as progenitor toxin complexes (PTCs) to become highly potent oral poisons. Here, we report the...

    The 230-kDa bullous pemphigoid antigen is a hemidesmosomal protein of the cutaneous basement membrane zone. The primary sequences deduced from full-length human cDNAs predict that this molecule consists of a central rod region and flanking globular domains. To get insight into regulation of the...

    More than 50% of the world's population is infected with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). Chronic infection with this Gram-negative pathogen is associated with the development of peptic ulcers and is linked to an increased risk of gastric cancer. H. pylori secretes many proteinaceous factors...
