There are two major classes of clostridial toxins that act at the cytoplasmic level in the host cell. These toxins contain a binding component that adheres to a receptor(s) on the host cell membrane, which results in the formation of an ­endocytic vacuole that contains the toxin. Lysosomal fusion leads to the acidification of the vacuole, a conformation change in the toxin, and secretion of the active enzymatic component of the toxin into the cytoplasm, where it leads to cellular damage. The first class of toxins is represented by tetanus neurotoxin (TeNT) and the seven related, but distinct, botulinum neurotoxins (BoNT/A to BoNT/G) (Chapter 7).

LCGTs contain C‐terminal repeats involved in the recognition of the cell surface receptor and a central hydrophobic domain mediating the translocation of the N‐terminal catalytic domain into the cytosol through the endosome membrane. The catalytic domain is cleaved from the rest of the molecule by an autocleavage process involving the cysteine protease domain which contains the active site DHC. The catalytic domain structure shows a compact core of β‐sheet surrounded by numerous α‐helices with central catalytic motif (DxD) and an extension of four N‐terminal helices.
