A method of rapid and selective detection and purification of contracture-inducing insect toxins from Buthinae scorpion venoms is described in this paper. It consists of two main steps: the first one is specific as it uses immunoaffinity chromatography with antibodies against Androctonus australis Hector IT; the second, reverse phase high pressure liquid(More)
The toxicity of the insect toxin from the venom of the scorpion Androctonus australis Hector has been studied in six species of insects, three species of crustaceans (two terrestrial and one aquatic) and in mice. Paralysing and lethal effects were observed not only in insects but also on the three crustacean species. For insects the LD50 varies from 2 to(More)
