Tetanus toxoid is an inactivated form of tetanus toxin. Tetanus toxin is an exotoxin produced by Clostridium tetani and is the agent responsible for "lockjaw". Tetanus toxin binds to presynaptic membranes and is internalized by nerves. The toxin is then transported to the central nervous system through retrograde axonal transport within the neuron. In the CNS, the toxin blocks neurotransmitter release leading to the muscle spasms characteristic of tetanus.
