Venoms of predatory Conus snails are composed of several hundreds of peptide toxins. Many of these peptides display a high selectivity for particular membrane receptors such as ionic channels or G-protein coupled receptors. This property makes them very promising tools for the study of receptors and potential new drugs. Conus snails synthesize toxins under various folds, each fold related to particular pharmacological activities. Aiming the discovery of new conotoxins, we looked for toxins with… CONTINUE READING
