The pharmacological actions on guinea-pig ileum of crude venoms from the marine gastropods Conus striatus and Conus magus.
The venom of Conus striatus caused an initial contracture of the ileum which was sustained for 20-25 min. In addition, the venom induced a series of shorter, more intense contractions which occurredExpand

Some effects on muscle and nerve of crude venom from the gastropod Conus striatus.
The venom of Conus striatus elicits spontaneous activity in nerves and in skeletal muscles. In frog sartorius muscle the venom lowers resting potentials of muscle fibres and triggers actionExpand

Some effects of crude venom from the cones Conus striatus and Conus magus on isolated guinea-pig atria.
Long-lasting positive inotropic activity is shown by the venoms of Conus striatus and C. magus. The activity persists after repeated and prolonged washout but is blocked by prior β-adrenoceptorExpand
