Tityus serrulatus is considered the most dangerous scorpion in South America and responsible for most of the fatal cases. This review will focus on Tityus serrulatus scorpion venom (Tsv), its long-chain Na+-channel toxins (NaTx), which include α- and β-neurotoxins, short-chain K+-channel toxins (KTx), hyaluronidase, proteases and other peptides hitherto identified.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
