Tetrodotoxin (TTX) is a powerful neurotoxin. Its name gets from Tetraodontiformes, a request that incorporates pufferfish, porcupinefish, sea sunfish, and triggerfish; a few of these animal categories convey the poison. Despite the fact that tetrodotoxin was found in these fish and found in a few different creatures (e.g., in blue-ringed octopus, harsh cleaned newts, and moon snails), it is really delivered by certain contaminating or cooperative microscopic organisms like Pseudoalteromonas, Pseudomonas, and Vibrio just as different species found in creatures.

Tetrodotoxin is a sodium channel blocker. It hinders the terminating of activity possibilities in neurons by restricting to the voltage-gated sodium directs in nerve cell layers and impeding the section of sodium particles (answerable for the rising period of an activity potential) into the neuron. This keeps the sensory system from conveying messages and along these lines muscles from contracting in light of apprehensive incitement.

Its component of activity, specific impeding of the sodium channel, was shown absolutely in 1964 by Toshio Narahashi and John W. Moore at Duke University, utilizing the sucrose hole voltage clip method.

The diagnosis of pufferfish poisoning is based on the observed symptomatology and recent dietary history.

Symptoms typically develop within 30 minutes of ingestion, but may be delayed by up to four hours; however, if the dose is fatal, symptoms are usually present within 17 minutes of ingestion.

  • Paresthesia of the lips and tongue
  • paresthesia in the extremities,
  • hypersalivation,
  • sweating,
  • headache,
  • weakness,
  • lethargy, incoordination, tremor, paralysis, cyanosis, aphonia, dysphagia, and seizures.

The gastrointestinal symptoms are often severe and include

  • nausea,
  • vomiting,
  • diarrhea, and
  • abdominal pain;

Death is usually secondary to respiratory failure. There is increasing respiratory distress, speech is affected, and the victim usually exhibits dyspnea, mydriasis, and hypotension. Paralysis increases, and convulsions, mental impairment, and cardiac arrhythmia may occur. The victim, although completely paralyzed, may be conscious and in some cases completely lucid until shortly before death, which generally occurs within 4 to 6 hours (range ~20 minutes to ~8 hours). However, some victims enter a coma.

If the patient survives 24 hours, recovery without any residual effects will usually occur over a few days.
