Cardiotoxins (CTXs) are a group of homologous proteins found in cobra snake venom and consist of 60-62 amino acid residues. Although CTXs are known to consist of three extended P-sheet loops similar to neurotoxins, the target and interaction of CTXs with membranes unlike those of neurotoxins are not well understood. Herein, we report comparative studies of 10 CTXs purified from Taiwan cobra (Nwb na& atra) and Mozambique spitting cobra (Nqja mossambica mossambica) snake venoms with respect to… CONTINUE READING
