  • The neuromuscular toxicity of stonefish (Synanceia trachynis) venom was characterized by electrophysiological and electron microscopic examination of isolated murine and frog nerve-skeletal muscle preparations exposed to various concentrations of venom. Low concentrations of venom (2.5-10 micrograms/ml) acted presynaptically by causing release and depletion of neurotransmitter from the nerve terminal. The response was Na+ channel-independent (resistant to tetrodotoxin), required the presence of… CONTINUE READING
