Tubocurarine s structure is shown in Figure 1,Curare Plants. The plants containing the curar toxin reside in the. Loganiaceae and Menispermaceae families 8 These, curare plants contain a toxin known as tubocurarine. Bowman 2006 This toxin resides in all parts of the plant. and is obtained by boiling the roots bark and stalks of the. plant 8 Two species of plants are used to isolate, tubocurarine Chondrodendron tomentosum and Strychnos. toxifera 9 This toxin is a member of the quaternary. alkaloids meaning it is an alkaloid structure that contains. four R groups branching from its core structure and acts. as a neuromuscular junction blocker 8 Though one of Figure 1 Turbocurarine. the R groups of the alkaloid contains one nitrogen that is. Permission allowed through, tertiary this nitrogen is charged at physiological pH and.

These autoreceptors are believed to have a role in. mobilizing acetylcholine from reserves in order to handle. an increased frequency of nerve impulses associated with. transmissions needed for striated muscle excitement 9. Tubocurarine has been shown to block these, autoreceptors creating a tetanic fade 9 This tetanic. fade is defined as the muscle s inability to maintain a. muscle contraction no matter how high the electrical. impulse generated 9 This inability to maintain a, contraction means that the muscle is at a constant relaxed.
