Pharmacological Perspectives of Wasp Venom
Venoms of several animals have been used to study various physiopathologic processes, and also to offer opportunity to design and develop new therapeutic drugs. We briefly review certain wasp venom components and their biological effects, which may be potential sources of novel pharmacologically active compounds.

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.
