Two novel toxins, Lqh6 and Lqh7, isolated from the venom of the scorpion Leiurus quinquestriatus hebraeus, have in their sequence a molecular signature (8Q/KPE10) associated with a recently defined group of alpha-toxins that target Na channels, namely the alpha-like toxins [reviewed in Gordon, D., Savarin, P., Gurevitz, M. & Zinn-Justin, S. (1998) J.(More)
Two new toxins were purified from Leiurus quinquestriatus hebraeus (Lqh) scorpion venom, Lqh II and Lqh III. Lqh II sequence reveals only two substitutions, as compared to AaH II, the most active scorpion alpha-toxin on mammals from Androctounus australis Hector. Lqh III shares 80% sequence identity with the alpha-like toxin Bom III from Buthus occitanus(More)
Sperm chromatin of Murex brandaris (a neogastropod mollusc) undergoes a series of structural transitions during spermiogenesis. The DNA-interacting proteins responsible for these changes as well as the mature protamines present in the ripe sperm nucleus have been characterized. The results reveal that spermiogenic nuclear proteins are protamine precursors(More)
