Botulinum toxin is a toxin produced by the anaerobic, gram-positive, bacterium of the genus Clostridium (C. botulinum, C. butyricum, C. baratii and C. argentinense). These strains are widely distributed and can be found in soil and dust. Eight types of botulinum toxin are distinguished, named type A–H. Type A and B are capable of causing disease in humans (botulism) and have longest activity in vivo, and are also used commercially (BOTOX) and medically. Types C–G are less common; types E and F can cause disease in humans, while the other types cause disease in other animals. BotB is cleaved into two chains: heavy and light.
