Toxins from mamba venoms: small proteins with selectivities for different subtypes of muscarinic acetylcholine receptors.

Abstract

Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors exist as five subtypes that are widely distributed throughout the body. Conventional pharmacological agents are not highly selective for particular subtypes, making investigations on the functional significance of the subtypes difficult. Recent findings indicate that mamba snake venoms contain several small proteins… (More)
