cDNA cloning, sequence analysis and molecular modeling of a new peptide from the scorpion Buthotus saulcyi venom.

Abstract

In this study, the cDNA of a new peptide from the venom of the scorpion, Buthotus saulcyi, was cloned and sequenced. It codes for a 64 residues peptide (Bsaul1) which shares high sequence similarity with depressant insect toxins of scorpions. The differences between them mainly appear in the loop1 which connects the beta-strand1 to the alpha-helix and seems… (More)
