Phaiodactylipin was purified from the venom of the scorpion Anuroctonus phaiodactylus. It is the first protein to be purified from a scorpion of the family Iuridae and has a molecular mass of 19 172 atomic mass units. The mature protein is composed of two subunits, the large one consisting of 108 amino acid residues, whereas the small subunit has only 18 residues, and the structure is stabilized by five disulfide bridges. The heterodimer is expressed from a single message containing 769 base… CONTINUE READING
