Structural Determinants of Fasciculin Specificity for Acetylcholinesterase
TLDR
Fasciculins are the only known peptide inhibitors of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) with a high degree of selectivity and have been shown to display powerful inhibitory activity toward mammalian and fish AChE.
Muscarinic toxins from the venom of Dendroaspis snakes with agonist-like actions.
Toxins from Mamba Venoms that Facilitate Neuroiluscular Transmission
TLDR
The prejunctional facilitatory toxins enhance the amount of transmitter that is released in response to nerve stimulation, and can be observed in both the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system and in the central nervous system.

Biochemical and physiological properties of a purified snake venom neurotoxin which acts presynaptically.
TLDR
A highly toxic protein has been isolated from the venom of the snake Bungarus multicinctus and similarities between the properties of this neurotoxin and that described by Lee and Chang (1966) suggest that it is identical to β-bungarotoxin.

TLDR
A toxin has been isolated from the venom of the green mamba, Dendroaspis angusticeps, by ion exchange chromatography on Amberlite CG-50 and gel filtration through Sephadex G-50, and reveals homology with both the neuro- and cardiotoxins.
