An insecticidal peptide referred to as Tx4(6-1) was purified from the venom of the spider Phoneutria nigriventer by a combination of gel filtration, reverse-phase fast liquid chromatography on(More)
Previously, a potent hemolytic toxin (Sp-CTx - 121 kDa) was isolated from Atlantic Scorpionfish Scorpaena plumieri venom. In the present work, we aimed to elucidate the action mechanisms involved in(More)
Several pools of neurotoxic peptides obtained from fractionated Phoneutria nigriventer venom induce different toxicological effects. One of them, PhTx4, is highly toxic towards insects and displays(More)
