Biological versatility of crotamine--a cationic peptide from the venom of a South American rattlesnake.

Abstract

IMPORTANCE OF THE FIELD Molecules isolated from animals, insects, plants or microorganisms can provide prototypes for design of biopharmaceutical products. Some venom toxins and their derivatives are used in medicine, while others provide templates for development of new drugs. AREAS COVERED IN THIS REVIEW The mild toxin, crotamine, a small basic low… (More)
