  • Abstract.The venoms of predatory cone snails (genus Conus) have yielded a complex library of about 50–100,000 bioactive peptides, each believed to have a specific physiological target (although peptides from different species may overlap in their target specificity). Conus has evolved the equivalent of a drug development strategy that combines the accelerated evolution of toxin sequences with an unprecedented degree of posttranslational modification. Some Conus venom peptide families are the… CONTINUE READING
