A toxin from the green mamba Dendroaspis angusticeps: amino acid sequence and selectivity for muscarinic m4 receptors.

Abstract

Muscarinic toxin 3 (MT3) (65 amino acids, four disulphides, M(r) 7379) was isolated from the venom of the African snake Dendroaspis angusticeps (green mamba) and its amino acid sequence determined. Its ability to inhibit the binding of [3H]N-methylscopolamine ([3H]NMS) to Chinese hamster ovary cells stably expressing subtypes of muscarinic receptors was… (More)
