The clinical use of Botulinum A toxin (BoNT/A) is based on its ability to block the vesicular release of Acetilcholine (Ach) and other neurotransmitters at the level of the neuronal plasmatic membrane. This process requires the internalization of the neurotoxin within the target cell, what it happens by means of the binding with high affinity receptors. These receptors are the synaptic vesicle proteins type 2 (SV2). To date three different types of SV2 receptors have been identified in synaptic structures and endocrine tissues.

Abstract

The clinical use of Botulinum A toxin (BoNT/A) is based on its ability to block the vesicular release of Acetilcholine (Ach) and other neurotransmitters at the level of the neuronal plasmatic membrane. This process requires the internalization of the neurotoxin within the target cell, what it happens by means of the binding with high affinity receptors. These receptors are the synaptic vesicle proteins type 2 (SV2). To date three different types of SV2 receptors have been identified in synaptic structures and endocrine tissues.
