through genetic constraints that limit the diversity of classes produced or recruited through evolution is not yet clear. At the same time, rapid evolutionary diversification and variability is the hallmark of venom evolution. Marine cone snails (Conus) are predatory mollusks that fire a venomous harpoon that almost instantly immobilizes target prey (Figure 3). These darts carry an astonishingly diverse blend of neurotoxins that block ion channels or disrupt neuronal receptors. Molecular… CONTINUE READING
