Three-dimensional structure of the RGD-containing neurotoxin homologue dendroaspin

Abstract

Dendroaspin is a short chain neurotoxin homologue from the venom of Elapidae snakes, which lacks neurotoxicity. Unlike neurotoxins, it contains an Arg-Gly-Asp-(RGD)-motif and functions as an inhibitor of platelet aggregation and platelet adhesion with comparable potency to the disintegrins from the venoms of Viperidae. We have determined the structure of… (More)
