The smallest complex formed includes the neurotoxin and a NTNH protein. 4 Pathophysiology Botulinum toxins are synthesized as single chain polypeptides with a molecular weight of around 150 kDa (DasGupta 1994). Initially, the parent chain is cleaved into its active, dichain polypeptide form consisting of a heavy chain (approx. 100 kDa) connected by a disulfide bond to a light chain (approx. 50 kDa) with an associated zinc atom (Schiavo et al. 1992). 1 Four Required Steps to Induce Paralysis 1 .

2002). Studies on guinea pig (MacKenzie et al. 1982) and rat (Smith et al. 2003a) bladder strips have shown that BoNT is capable of inhibiting the release of both acetylcholine and ATP, providing a rationale for its possible use in treating patients with idiopathic overactive bladder. Bladder urothelium may play an important role in the sensory transduction mechanisms modulating micturition, particularly in conditions of increased sensory nerve transmission following chronic inflammation and spinal cord injury (Khera et al.
