Finally botulinus toxins have become enormously useful tools for scientists attempting to characterise the functions of the presynaptic neuronal proteins which bind the toxins and to unravel the mechanisms involved in transmitter release. Their use is enabling the crucial docking and fusion events in the process of exocytosis to be elucidated. Botulinus Toxin 25 Properties The toxicity of botulinum toxins is due to their ability to attack nerves specifically and also to catalyse the degradation of selective presynaptic proteins.

In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the quality of food, including the levels of environmental contaminants. The FDA has established guidelines for the levels of aflatoxins permitted in human foodstuffs and animal feed. The maximum permitted level for human food is 20 parts per billion of total aflatoxins. Higher levels are permissible for feed destined for animal consumption. Detoxification strategies Because it is impossible to completely avoid some degree of aflatoxin contamination, a variety of strategies for their detoxification in foodstuffs have been proposed.
