A Brief History of Saporin and its Contributions to Neuroscience

ABSTRACT When investigating the origins of targeted toxins (a drug, therapy, or scientific tool directed to unique extracellular target), an appropriate place to begin is with the Nobel Prize-winning work of Paul Ehrlich and his concept of the “magic bullet.” Over 100 years later, the use of targeted toxins to perform molecular neurosurgery has become …
