Neurotoxins produced by some Clostridium species are among the most potent toxins known . Tetanus and botulinum toxins are produced by Clostridium tetani and C. botulinum and cause tetanus and botulism respectively. These toxins are proteases which attack the proteins involved in synaptic vesicle and plasma membrane fusion and release of neurotransmitter. Seven types of botulinum toxin are produced with M, of 135000-170000. The botulinum B toxin is one of the most deadly toxins known; food-borne botulism has a mortal ity of 100%.

When all the dictyosomes in a cell are structurally interassociated, only one Golgi apparatus is considered to be present (Fig. 46), but it is possible for a cell to have several Golgi apparatuses, each composed of one or more dictyosomes. The Golgi apparatus, therefore, varies in form and extent depending upon the type of cell and on its metabolic state. Fig. 46 Three-dimensional representation showing the interconnections between the dictyosomes of the Golgi apparatus. Redrawn from Krstic, RV (1975) Ultrastructure of the Mammalian Cel/, Springer-Verlag, Heidelberg, Germany.
