Six isoforms of cardiotoxin in malayan spitting cobra (Naja naja sputatrix) venom: cloning and characterization of cDNAs.

Abstract

Cardiotoxins are the most abundant toxin components of cobra venom. Although many cardiotoxins have been purified and characterized by amino acid sequencing and other pharmacological and biochemical studies, to date only five cardiotoxin cDNAs from Taiwan cobra (Naja naja atra), three cDNAs from Chinese cobra (Naja atra) and two more of uncertain origin… (More)
