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)
275 Insight into naphthoquinone metabolism : β-glucosidase-catalysed hydrolysis of hydrojuglone β-D-glucopyranoside In plants, the naphthoquinone juglone is known to be involved in pathogenic defence mechanisms, but it may also take part in plant developmental processes. This naphthoquinone can accumulate in a glycosylated form, namely hydrojuglone(More)
The search for protein ligands is a crucial step in the inhibitor design process. Fragment screening represents an interesting method to rapidly find lead molecules, as it enables the exploration of a larger portion of the chemical space with a smaller number of compounds as compared to screening based on drug-sized molecules. Moreover, fragment screening(More)
Delta-conotoxin EVIA, from Conus ermineus, is a 32-residue polypeptide cross-linked by three disulfide bonds forming a four-loop framework. delta-Conotoxin EVIA is the first conotoxin known to inhibit sodium channel inactivation in neuronal membranes from amphibians and mammals (subtypes rNa(v)1.2a, rNa(v)1.3, and rNa(v)1.6), without affecting rat skeletal(More)
