During the previous twenty years, study on animal, plant, and microbial pollution has extended swiftly, and new and intriguing info has seemed to make clear either the medical and healing facets of intoxication and, much more impor­ tant, to assist us comprehend extra precisely the constitution and the mode of motion of poisons on a molecular foundation. as a result interdisciplinary nature of toxin examine, it truly is of important impor­ tance that employees focusing on its varied points should still make a specific attempt to switch and stay alongside of new advancements during this rapidly-expanding box. This has been one of many major reasons of the sequence of overseas conferences which were held during the last ten years. The expanding curiosity within the result of toxin study could be defined in part by means of the turning out to be basic preoccupation with toxins and its poisonous results, because of this extra anq extra experts in different fields are discovering it essential to keep up a correspondence with present study into obviously happening pollutants. The papers in those volumes have been provided on the Fourth foreign Symposium on Animal, Plant and Microbial pollution, prepared via the Inter­ nationwide Society on Toxicology, held in Tokyo in September, 1974. The editors have determined to incorporate either unique studies and overview articles, prepared in response to disciplines. modifying has been saved to the minimal beneficial for enough comprehension of the materials.

Fohlman, and E. Karlsson Institute of Biochemistry, Uppsa/a, Sweden INTRODUCTION The flaccid paralysis characteristic of envenomation by elapid and hydrophid snakes is due to protein toxins which block transmission across the cholinergic neuromuscular junction either by (1) a postsynaptic curare like action on the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors of the muscle motor endplate, or (2) a presynaptic interference with the release of acetylcholine from the motor nerve terminals. All elapid and hydrophid venoms examined thus far contain at least one, and usually several, postsynaptic neurotoxins of the curarimimetic type.
