 Synonyms & Historicals
Botany .
Botanies .
The study of the origin, structure, development, growth, function, genetics, and reproduction of plants. .
Botrytis .
Botryti .
A mitosporic Leotiales fungal genus of plant pathogens. It has teleomorphs in the genus Botryotina. .
Bothrops .
Jararaca .
Fer de Lance .
Fer-de-Lances .
Bothrops jararaca .
Fer-de-Lance .
A genus of poisonous snakes of the VIPERIDAE family. About 50 species are known and all are found in tropical America and southern South America. Bothrops atrox is the fer-de-lance and B. jararaca is the jararaca. (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, p336) .
Botulinum Toxins .
Botulinum Toxin .
Toxin, Botulinum .
Toxins, Botulinum .
Toxins, Clostridium botulinum .
Botulin .
Clostridium botulinum Toxins .
Toxic proteins produced from the species CLOSTRIDIUM BOTULINUM. The toxins are synthesized as a single peptide chain which is processed into a mature protein consisting of a heavy chain and light chain joined via a disulfide bond. The botulinum toxin light chain is a zinc-dependent protease which is released from the heavy chain upon ENDOCYTOSIS into PRESYNAPTIC NERVE ENDINGS. Once inside the cell the botulinum toxin light chain cleaves specific SNARE proteins which are essential for secretion of ACETYLCHOLINE by SYNAPTIC VESICLES. This inhibition of acetylcholine release results in muscular PARALYSIS. .
Insecticides .
Insecticides, Botanical .
Botanical Insecticides .
Insecticides, Carbamate .
Pesticides designed to control insects that are harmful to man. The insects may be directly harmful, as those acting as disease vectors, or indirectly harmful, as destroyers of crops, food products, or textile fabrics. .

Toxico Infectious Botulism .
Wound Botulisms .
Botulism, Infantile .
A disease caused by potent protein NEUROTOXINS produced by CLOSTRIDIUM BOTULINUM which interfere with the presynaptic release of ACETYLCHOLINE at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION. Clinical features include abdominal pain, vomiting, acute PARALYSIS (including respiratory paralysis), blurred vision, and DIPLOPIA. Botulism may be classified into several subtypes (e.g., food-borne, infant, wound, and others). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1208) .
