The effect of toxin from Leiurus quinquestriatus scorpion venom on the polymerization and stability of microtubules.

Abstract

The venom of the scorpion Leiurus quinquestriatus, well-known for its actions on voltage-sensitive sodium channels, has now been shown to have pronounced effects on the in vitro polymerization and stability of neuronal microtubules purified by temperature-dependent cycles of assembly and disassembly. The crude venom, at concentrations as low as 100… (More)
