  • They contain fourteen cysteines with p Is of 9.05 and 8.18 for Bl K- and Bl D-PLA 2 s, and show a high degree of sequence similarity to homologous snake venom PLA 2 s, but may display different biological effects. (mdpi.com)

  • bite
  • I was under the impression that although their bite wasn't particularly venomous, they are what is called a 'dirty mouthed' spider….much like the Australian Blue Tongued Lizzard, not having a venom that effects us, but that they can have nasty bacterium in their mouths (even necrotising)…is this NOT the case? (tepapa.govt.nz)
  • One thing's for sure though, and that's if you see a story where a white-tail is blamed even though the bite wasn't felt, it was almost certainly something else. (tepapa.govt.nz)

  • These reports led to increased fear in the 1990s and general acceptance that white-tail spider bite causes necrotic ulcers. (mja.com.au)
  • Although its bite has very potent venom damaging to the nervous system, the effects on each individual are quite variable. (backwoodshome.com)
  • The venom of the brown recluse is thought to be more potent than a rattlesnake's, although much less is injected in its bite. (backwoodshome.com)
  • It's an extremely painful bite and when it sinks its teeth into you it releases a very toxic venom that in almost every case requires hospitalization. (hubpages.com)
  • Adults have a reputation for hanging on with bulldog tenacity, chewing as they bite to release more venom. (theatlantic.com)
  • toxins
  • But now we've been able to identify a core component of one of these conotoxins (toxins from cone snail venom) during laboratory tests. (phys.org)

  • While I know first-hand that daddy longlegs spiders can catch and eat white-tails, I can't guarantee what effect they'll have on your local white-tail population! (tepapa.govt.nz)
