The isolation of an easily reversible post-synaptic toxin from the venom of a sea snake, Laticauda semifasciata.

A weakly neurotoxic component (Ls-III) was isolated by CM-cellulose column chromatography from the venom of a sea snake Laticauda semifasciata. The content of component LsIII was about 10-20% of the venom as determined by u.v. absorption at 280nm. Component LsIII was homogeneous on rechromatography and disc electrophoresis, and its molecular weight was… CONTINUE READING
