1. Insect toxin, mammal toxins I and II and crustacean toxin were obtained from the venom of the scorpion Androctonus australis. Their effects on the isolated giant axon of the cockroach Periplaneta americana were investigated by current-clamp and voltage-clamp techniques. 2. In current-clamp conditions, mammal toxins and crustacean toxin (1.3-13 microM) induced a large prolongation of the falling phase of the evoked action potentials. Insect toxin (0.13-3.3 microM) induced a progressive slow… CONTINUE READING
