A Nonreductionist Approach to the Mechanism of Action of Botulinal Neurotoxin Understandably, success in explaining the biochemical mechanism of action of both diphtherial and cholera toxins as one consisting of specialization of separable pieces of the toxic protein molecule, one functioning to permit translocation across a cell membrane, and the other, the separated toxic portion, to act enzymatically in a deleterious manner has led to use of these findings as a model to explain the mechanism of other toxins.

Based on differences in sensitivity to a neurotoxin, inferences may be drawn as to variances in anatomy or physiology between young and old animals. and how these may be influenced by sexual development. Of itself a difference in responsiveness may not tell us much about the toxin if its mechanism of action is incompletely understood. Nonetheless such findings can reveal the toxin to be a means for better understanding, or revealing fruitful ques· tions, about host biochemistry, anatomy and physiology at possibly clinicall significant and, undoubtedly, a basic scientific level.

If the staphylococcus and gonnococcus compete for the same ecological niche within the urinary tract this would be the rare known case of a bacterial toxin conferring a competitive advantage. The competitive advantage situation cannot apply to toxin producing pathogens that invade and occupy sterile intracellular space of host cells and the sterile internal body spaces of plants and animals. Many toxins exist in the bacterium as protoxins, nontoxic molecules. They must be converted to the toxic entity either by the sloughing off of a piece of the molecule or by a change in molecular three dimensional shape before or after they leave the bacterium.
