Acidification of the vesicle containing tetanus toxin disulfide-bonded heavy chain - light chain dimer (tetX HC:LC) is inferred to cause a conformational change in the toxin dimer, allowing the HC part of the toxin to function as a channel through which its LC part is extruded into the neuronal cytosol (Montal 2010).
