The full-length cDNA of an excitatory insect selective neurotoxin was amplified from total cDNAs of venomous glands of the scorpion Buthus martensi Karsch (BmK) using the 3'RACE and 5'RACE (rapid amplification of cDNA ends, RACE) method and sequenced. The cDNA encoded a precursor of the insect toxin of 88 amino acid residues, including a signal peptide of(More)
Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNSTs) are aggressive sarcomas without effective therapeutics. Bioinformatics was used to identify potential therapeutic targets. Paired Box (PAX), Eyes Absent (EYA), Dachsund (DACH) and Sine Oculis (SIX) genes, which form a regulatory interactive network in Drosophila, were found to be dysregulated in human MPNST(More)
Besides the neurotoxins active on mammals, a new excitatory insect selective toxin with a mice analgesic activity was found and purified from the venom of the scorpion Buthus martensi Karsch (BmK) (Ji, Y.H., Mansuelle, P., Terakawa, S., Kopeyan, C., Yanaihara, N., Hsu, K., Rochat, H., 1996.
