Sequence analysis of the cDNA encoding for SpCTx: a lethal factor from scorpionfish venom (Scorpaena plumieri)
TLDR
The study identified a putative toxin protein whose primary structure is similar to other fish toxins and with potential for production of antivenom against scorpionfish envenomation in Brazil, and proposes that the toxin is structurally related to pore-forming marine toxins.
Enzymatic properties and primary structures of hyaluronidases from two species of lionfish (Pterois antennata and Pterois volitans)
TLDR
Examination of enzymatic properties and primary structures of lionfish hyaluronidases revealed that they form a cluster independently of other hyalurinidases from mammals and venomous animals, and phylogenetic tree analysis revealed this.
Primary structures and conformations of stonefish toxin-like toxins from three species of rabbitfish, Siganus puellus, Siganus unimaculatus, and Siganus virgatus
TLDR
Homology modeling indicated that the predicted three-dimensional structures of the rabbitfish toxins are comparable to that of stonustoxin (a toxin of the stonefish Synanceia horrida), as they are composed of four domains, and it is assumed that the rabbit fish toxins form pores in cell membranes by essentially the same mechanism as stonUSToxin.
Transcriptomic Analysis of Four Cerianthid (Cnidaria, Ceriantharia) Venoms
TLDR
This study is the first to provide a survey of the putative venom composition of cerianthids, and contributes to the general understanding of the diversity of cnidarian toxins.
Toxin gene determination and evolution in scorpaenoid fish.
Occurrence of a stonefish toxin‐like toxin in the venom of the rabbitfish Siganus fuscescens
The first report on coagulation and phospholipase A2 activities of Persian Gulf lionfish, Pterois russelli, an Iranian venomous fish.
A Polychaete’s Powerful Punch: Venom Gland Transcriptomics of Glycera Reveals a Complex Cocktail of Toxin Homologs
TLDR
A complex mixture of toxin homologs suggests that bloodworms employ venom while predating on macroscopic prey, casting doubt on the previously widespread opinion that G. dibranchiata is a detritivore.

Venoms from six species of marine fish: lethal and hemolytic activities and their neutralization by commercial stonefish antivenom
TLDR
Results of neutralization tests suggest that venoms from the six species were comparable in terms of antigenecity, and both lethal and hemolytic activities of S. verrucosa venom were remarkably neutralized by the commercial stonefish antivenom.

Properties of a lethal factor in stonefish Synanceia vorrucosa venom
TLDR
This paper reports some properties of a lethal factor in the venom of anoth er species, S. verrucosa, which is substantially insoluble in distilled water, but soluble in buffers with high ionic strength, and that it retains lethal activity even after it is precipitated in distilledWater.
Stonustoxin Is a Novel Lethal Factor from Stonefish (Synanceja horrida) Venom
TLDR
This work has isolated and sequenced cDNA clones encoding the α- and β-subunits of SNTX from a venom gland cDNA library, the first complete sequence of a fish-derived protein toxin to be reported.
