  • 250px|right|TetrodotoxinTetrodotoxin (kurz TTX) ist das Gift des Kugelfisches. Eine tödliche Dosis liegt bei etwa 10µg pro kg Körpergewicht. Tetradotoxin wirkt als Nervengift, welches spannungsaktivierte Natriumkanäle auf den Neuronen blockiert. Dadurch wird die Auslösung eines Aktionspotentials durch das Neuron verhindert, was effektiv die Weiterleitung von Reizen verhindert und auch zu Muskellähmungen führt. Der Tod tritt in der Regel durch Atemstillstand ein.
  • Tetrodotoxin is a type of poison.
  • Tetrodotoxin is the name of a track within the BIOHAZARD THE UMBRELLA CHRONICLES ORIGINAL SOUND TRACK album.
  • Tetrodotoxin was a powerful drug on Earth in the 20th century. It was a folk poison capable of pharmacologically inducing an apparent state of death. It was a naturally occurring and highly potent neurotoxin found in the puffer fish and the Japanese fugu. Its method of operation was to block nerve signals by interfering with the sodium process through cells. Symptoms of tetrodotoxin poisoning included pulmonary oedema, hypotension, cyanosis, hypothermia, respiratory distress, paralysis and death.
  • Tetrodotoxin is a toxin that affects the nervous system. It binds to nerve cell sodium channels preventing the nerves from transferring sodium ions which prevents the normal transmission of nerve impulses through the body. This leads to rapid paralysis of the nerves controlling voluntary movement and eventually disruption of the nerve impulses that regulate the heart rate, causing tachycardia, and the loss of peripheral nerve sensation. It is extremely potent and 25mg will kill a human weighing about 165 lb. in half of cases.

It is extremely potent and 25mg will kill a human weighing about 165 lb. in half of cases. Although the toxin is found in many types of poisonous sea creatures, most notably the pufferfish and the blue octopus, it is actually created by a symbiotic bacteria within those sea creatures. The body will eventually rid itself of the toxin over time, and there being no anti-toxin, treatment focuses on supportive care.

Its method of operation was to block nerve signals by interfering with the sodium process through cells. Symptoms of tetrodotoxin poisoning included pulmonary oedema, hypotension, cyanosis, hypothermia, respiratory distress, paralysis and death. Justine Wheaton took a pill that combined tetrodotoxin and an amphetamine derivative. As part of the Seventh Doctor's plan to defeat the Butler Institute, she would appear dead, be taken to the Institute, and awake to let the Doctor, Ace, and others into the building. (PROSE: Cat's Cradle: Warhead) In Haiti, its sacramental use was central to the zombie phenomenon. It lowered people's senses and put them in hypnotic states; they would be buried, dug up later, and be tricked into thinking they had died and were subsequently turned into slaves. It was similar to another drug used by Usurians to maintain the slaves on their business planets. (PROSE: White Darkness)
