Spider Venoms: Venoms of arthropods of the order Araneida of the ARACHNIDA. The venoms usually contain several protein fractions, including ENZYMES, hemolytic, neurolytic, and other TOXINS, BIOLOGICAL.Spiders: Arthropods of the class ARACHNIDA, order Araneae. Except for mites and ticks, spiders constitute the largest order of arachnids, with approximately 37,000 species having been described. The majority of spiders are harmless, although some species can be regarded as moderately harmful since their bites can lead to quite severe local symptoms.

About 50 species are known and all are found in tropical America and southern South America. Bothrops atrox is the fer-de-lance and B. jararaca is the jararaca. (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, p336)Fish Venoms: Venoms produced by FISHES, including SHARKS and sting rays, usually delivered by spines. They contain various substances, including very labile toxins that affect the HEART specifically and all MUSCLES generally.Synaptic Vesicles: Membrane-bound compartments which contain transmitter molecules. Synaptic vesicles are concentrated at presynaptic terminals. They actively sequester transmitter molecules from the cytoplasm. In at least some synapses, transmitter release occurs by fusion of these vesicles with the presynaptic membrane, followed by exocytosis of their contents.Ant Venoms: Venoms from the superfamily Formicoidea, Ants. They may contain protein factors and toxins, histamine, enzymes, and alkaloids and are often allergenic or immunogenic.Predatory Behavior: Instinctual behavior pattern in which food is obtained by killing and consuming other species.Fibroins: Fibrous proteins secreted by INSECTS and SPIDERS. Generally, the term refers to silkworm fibroin secreted by the silk gland cells of SILKWORMS, Bombyx mori. Spider fibroins are called spidroins or dragline silk fibroins.Elapidae: A family of extremely venomous snakes, comprising coral snakes, cobras, mambas, kraits, and sea snakes. They are widely distributed, being found in the southern United States, South America, Africa, southern Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. The elapids include three subfamilies: Elapinae, Hydrophiinae, and Lauticaudinae. Like the viperids, they have venom fangs in the front part of the upper jaw. The mambas of Africa are the most dangerous of all snakes by virtue of their size, speed, and highly toxic venom. (Goin, Goin, and Zug, Introduction to Herpetology, 3d ed, p329-33)Amino Acid Sequence: The order of amino acids as they occur in a polypeptide chain. This is referred to as the primary structure of proteins. It is of fundamental importance in determining PROTEIN CONFORMATION.Molecular Sequence Data: Descriptions of specific amino acid, carbohydrate, or nucleotide sequences which have appeared in the published literature and/or are deposited in and maintained by databanks such as GENBANK, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), National Biomedical Research Foundation (NBRF), or other sequence repositories.Freeze Fracturing: Preparation for electron microscopy of minute replicas of exposed surfaces of the cell which have been ruptured in the frozen state.

The venoms contain proteins, enzymes, choline derivatives, slow-reacting substances, and several characterized polypeptide toxins that affect the nervous system. Mollusk venoms include cephalotoxin, venerupin, maculotoxin, surugatoxin, conotoxins, and murexine.Botulinum Toxins: Toxic proteins produced from the species CLOSTRIDIUM BOTULINUM. The toxins are synthesized as a single peptide chain which is processed into a mature protein consisting of a heavy chain and light chain joined via a disulfide bond. The botulinum toxin light chain is a zinc-dependent protease which is released from the heavy chain upon ENDOCYTOSIS into PRESYNAPTIC NERVE ENDINGS. Once inside the cell the botulinum toxin light chain cleaves specific SNARE proteins which are essential for secretion of ACETYLCHOLINE by SYNAPTIC VESICLES. This inhibition of acetylcholine release results in muscular PARALYSIS.Arachnida: A class of Arthropoda that includes SPIDERS; TICKS; MITES; and SCORPIONS.Atelinae: A subfamily in the family ATELIDAE, comprising three genera: woolly monkeys (Lagothrix), spider monkeys (Ateles), and woolly spider monkeys (Brachyteles).Scorpions: Arthropods of the order Scorpiones, of which 1500 to 2000 species have been described. The most common live in tropical or subtropical areas. They are nocturnal and feed principally on insects and other arthropods. They are large arachnids but do not attack man spontaneously. They have a venomous sting. Their medical significance varies considerably and is dependent on their habits and venom potency rather than on their size. At most, the sting is equivalent to that of a hornet but certain species possess a highly toxic venom potentially fatal to humans.

The latrophilin family: multiply spliced G protein-coupled receptors with differential tissue distribution. (1/629)

Latrophilin is a brain-specific Ca2+-independent receptor of alpha-latrotoxin, a potent presynaptic neurotoxin. We now report the finding of two novel latrophilin homologues. All three latrophilins are unusual G protein-coupled receptors. They exhibit strong similarities within their lectin, olfactomedin and transmembrane domains but possess variable C-termini. Latrophilins have up to seven sites of alternative splicing; some splice variants contain an altered third cytoplasmic loop or a truncated cytoplasmic tail. Only latrophilin-1 binds alpha-latrotoxin; it is abundant in brain and is present in endocrine cells. Latrophilin-3 is also brain-specific, whereas latrophilin-2 is ubiquitous. Together, latrophilins form a novel family of heterogeneous G protein-coupled receptors with distinct tissue distribution and functions.  (+info)

N-type voltage-dependent calcium channels mediate the nicotinic enhancement of GABA release in chick brain. (2/629)

The role of voltage-dependent calcium channels (VDCCs) in the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR)-mediated enhancement of spontaneous GABAergic inhibitory postsynaptic currents (IPSCs) was investigated in chick brain slices. Whole cell recordings of neurons in the lateral spiriform (SpL) and ventral lateral geniculate (LGNv) nuclei showed that cadmium chloride (CdCl2) blocked the carbachol-induced increase of spontaneous GABAergic IPSCs, indicating that VDCCs might be involved. To conclusively show a role for VDCCs, the presynaptic effect of carbachol on SpL and LGNv neurons was examined in the presence of selective blockers of VDCC subtypes. omega-Conotoxin GVIA, a selective antagonist of N-type channels, significantly reduced the nAChR-mediated enhancement of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) release in the SpL by 78% compared with control responses. Nifedipine, an L-type channel blocker, and omega-Agatoxin-TK, a P/Q-type channel blocker, did not inhibit the enhancement of GABAergic IPSCs. In the LGNv, omega-Conotoxin GVIA also significantly reduced the nAChR-mediated enhancement of GABA release by 71% from control values. Although omega-Agatoxin-TK did not block the nicotinic enhancement, L-type channel blockers showed complex effects on the nAChR-mediated enhancement. These results indicate that the nAChR-mediated enhancement of spontaneous GABAergic IPSCs requires activation of N-type channels in both the SpL and LGNv.  (+info)

Effects of phrixotoxins on the Kv4 family of potassium channels and implications for the role of Ito1 in cardiac electrogenesis. (3/629)

1. In the present study, two new peptides, phrixotoxins PaTx1 and PaTx2 (29-31 amino acids), which potently block A-type potassium currents, have been purified from the venom of the tarantula Phrixotrichus auratus. 2. Phrixotoxins specifically block Kv4.3 and Kv4.2 currents that underlie I(to1), with an 5 < IC50 < 70 nM, by altering the gating properties of these channels. 3. Neither are the Shaker (Kv1), Shab (Kv2) and Shaw (Kv3) subfamilies of currents, nor HERG, KvLQT1/IsK, inhibited by phrixotoxins which appear specific of the Shal (Kv4) subfamily of currents and also block I(to1) in isolated murine cardiomyocytes. 4. In order to evaluate the physiological consequences of the Ito1 inhibition, mice were injected intravenously with PaTx1, which resulted in numerous transient cardiac adverse reactions including the occurrence of premature ventricular beats, ventricular tachycardia and different degrees of atrioventricular block. 5. The analysis of the mouse electrocardiogram showed a dose-dependent prolongation of the QT interval, chosen as a surrogate marker for their ventricular repolarization, from 249 +/- 11 to 265 +/- 8 ms (P < 0.05). 6. It was concluded that phrixotoxins, are new and specific blockers of Kv4.3 and Kv4.2 potassium currents, and hence of I(to1) that will enable further studies of Kv4.2 and Kv4.3 channel and/or I(to1) expression.  (+info)

Selective effects of neuronal-synaptobrevin mutations on transmitter release evoked by sustained versus transient Ca2+ increases and by cAMP. (4/629)

Synaptobrevin is a key constituent of the synaptic vesicle membrane. The neuronal-synaptobrevin (n-syb) gene in Drosophila is essential for nerve-evoked synaptic currents, but miniature excitatory synaptic currents (mESCs) remain even in the complete absence of this gene. To further characterize the defect in these mutants, we have examined conditions that stimulate secretion. Despite the inability of an action potential to trigger fusion, high K+ saline could increase the frequency of mESCs 4- to 17-fold in a Ca2+-dependent manner, and the rate of fusion approached 25% of that seen in wild-type synapses under the same conditions. Similarly, the mESC frequency in n-syb null mutants could be increased by a Ca2+ ionophore, A23187, and by black widow spider venom. Thus, the ability of the vesicles to fuse in response to sustained increases in cytosolic Ca2+ persisted in the absence of this protein. Tetanic stimulation could also increase the frequency of mESCs, particularly toward the end of a train and after the train of stimuli. In contrast, these mutants did not respond to an elevation of cAMP induced by an activator of adenylyl cyclase, forskolin, or a membrane-permeable analog of cAMP, dibutyryl cAMP, which in wild-type synapses causes a marked increase in the mESC frequency even in the absence of external Ca2+. These results are discussed in the context of models that invoke a special role for n-syb in coupling fusion to the transient, local changes in Ca2+ and an as yet unidentified target of cAMP.  (+info)

Novel gating mechanism of polyamine block in the strong inward rectifier K channel Kir2.1. (5/629)

Inward rectifying K channels are essential for maintaining resting membrane potential and regulating excitability in many cell types. Previous studies have attributed the rectification properties of strong inward rectifiers such as Kir2.1 to voltage-dependent binding of intracellular polyamines or Mg to the pore (direct open channel block), thereby preventing outward passage of K ions. We have studied interactions between polyamines and the polyamine toxins philanthotoxin and argiotoxin on inward rectification in Kir2.1. We present evidence that high affinity polyamine block is not consistent with direct open channel block, but instead involves polyamines binding to another region of the channel (intrinsic gate) to form a blocking complex that occludes the pore. This interaction defines a novel mechanism of ion channel closure.  (+info)

Neurexins are functional alpha-latrotoxin receptors. (6/629)

Alpha-latrotoxin is a potent neurotoxin that triggers synaptic exocytosis. Surprisingly, two distinct neuronal receptors for alpha-latrotoxin have been described: CIRL/latrophilin 1 (CL1) and neurexin-1alpha. Alpha-latrotoxin is thought to trigger exocytosis by binding to CL1, while the role of neurexin 1alpha is uncertain. Using PC12 cells, we now demonstrate that neurexins indeed function as alpha-latrotoxin receptors that are at least as potent as CL1. Both alpha- and beta-neurexins represent autonomous alpha-latrotoxin receptors that are regulated by alternative splicing. Similar to CL1, truncated neurexins without intracellular sequences are fully active; therefore, neurexins and CL1 recruit alpha-latrotoxin but are not themselves involved in exocytosis. Thus, alpha-latrotoxin is unique among neurotoxins, because it utilizes two unrelated receptors, probably to amplify recruitment of alpha-latrotoxin to active sites.  (+info)

Calcium channels involved in synaptic transmission from reticulospinal axons in lamprey. (7/629)

The pharmacology of calcium channels involved in glutamatergic synaptic transmission from reticulospinal axons in the lamprey spinal cord was analyzed with specific agonists and antagonists of different high-voltage activated calcium channels. The N-type calcium channel blocker omega-conotoxin GVIA (omega-CgTx) induced a large decrease of the amplitude of reticulospinal-evoked excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs). The P/Q-type calcium channel blocker omega-agatoxin IVA (omega-Aga) also reduced the amplitude of the reticulospinal EPSPs, but to a lesser extent than omega-CgTx. The dihydropyridine agonist Bay K and antagonist nimodipine had no effect on the amplitude of the reticulospinal EPSP. Combined application of omega-CgTx and omega-Aga strongly decreased the amplitude the EPSPs but was never able to completely block them, indicating that calcium channels insensitive to these toxins (R-type) are also involved in synaptic transmission from reticulospinal axons. We have previously shown that the group III metabotropic glutamate receptor agonist L(+)-2-amino-4-phosphonobutyric acid (L-AP4) mediates presynaptic inhibition at the reticulospinal synapse. To test if this presynaptic effect is mediated through inhibition of calcium influx, the effect of L-AP4 on reticulospinal transmission was tested before and after blockade of N-type channels, which contribute predominantly to transmitter release at this synapse. Blocking the N-type channels with omega-CgTx did not prevent inhibition of reticulospinal synaptic transmission by L-AP4. In addition, L-AP4 had no affect on the calcium current recorded in the somata of reticulospinal neurons or on the calcium component of action potentials in reticulospinal axons. These results show that synaptic transmission from reticulospinal axons in the lamprey is mediated by calcium influx through N-, P/Q- and R-type channels, with N-type channels playing the major role. Furthermore, presynaptic inhibition of reticulospinal transmission by L-AP4 appears not to be mediated through inhibition of presynaptic calcium channels.  (+info)

Norepinephrine exocytosis stimulated by alpha-latrotoxin requires both external and stored Ca2+ and is mediated by latrophilin, G proteins and phospholipase C. (8/629)

alpha-latrotoxin (LTX) stimulates massive release of neurotransmitters by binding to a heptahelical transmembrane protein, latrophilin. Our experiments demonstrate that latrophilin is a G-protein-coupled receptor that specifically associates with heterotrimeric G proteins. The latrophilin-G protein complex is very stable in the presence of GDP but dissociates when incubated with GTP, suggesting a functional interaction. As revealed by immunostaining, latrophilin interacts with G alpha q/11 and G alpha o but not with G alpha s, G alpha i or G alpha z, indicating that this receptor may couple to several G proteins but it is not promiscuous. The mechanisms underlying LTX-evoked norepinephrine secretion from rat brain nerve terminals were also studied. In the presence of extracellular Ca2+, LTX triggers vesicular exocytosis because botulinum neurotoxins E, Cl or tetanus toxin inhibit the Ca(2+)-dependent component of the toxin-evoked release. Based on (i) the known involvement of G alpha q in the regulation of inositol-1,4,5-triphosphate generation and (ii) the requirement for Ca2+ in LTX action, we tested the effect of inhibitors of Ca2+ mobilization on the toxin-evoked norepinephrine release. It was found that aminosteroid U73122, which inhibits the coupling of G proteins to phospholipase C, blocks the Ca(2+)-dependent toxin's action. Thapsigargin, which depletes intracellular Ca2+ stores, also potently decreases the effect of LTX in the presence of extracellular Ca2+. On the other hand, clostridial neurotoxins or drugs interfering with Ca2+ metabolism do not inhibit the Ca2(+)-independent component of LTX-stimulated release. In the absence of Ca2+, the toxin induces in the presynaptic membrane non-selective pores permeable to small fluorescent dyes; these pores may allow efflux of neurotransmitters from the cytoplasm. Our results suggest that LTX stimulates norepinephrine exocytosis only in the presence of external Ca2+ provided intracellular Ca2+ stores are unperturbed and that latrophilin, G proteins and phospholipase C may mediate the mobilization of stored Ca2+, which then triggers secretion.  (+info)

The leukocyte migration induced by Phoneutria nigriventer spider venom (PNV) has been investigated in rats using the pleurisy model. Intrapleural injection of PNV (10-100 mug/cavity) caused a dose- and time-dependent leukocyte accumulation. the bradykinin B-2 receptor antagonist Hoe 140 (0.5 mg/kg) substantially inhibited PNV-induced cell accumulation, whereas the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor captopril (2 mg/kg) potentiated by 80% this effect. the non-specific kallikrein inhibitor aprotinin and the plasma kallikrein inhibitor soybean trypsin inhibitor greatly reduced PNV-induced leukocyte migration, whereas the selective tissue kallikrein inhibitor P-ac-F-S-R-EDDnp failed to affect PNV-induced responses. Treatment of rats with capsaicin (50 mg/kg) at the neonatal stage resulted in 67% inhibition of the PNV-induced cell migration. the neurokinin NK1 receptor antagonist SR140333, but not the NK2 receptor antagonist SR48968, reduced by 55% venom-induced cell accumulation. We conclude ...

Antimicrobial peptides have been accepted as excellent candidates for developing novel antibiotics against drug-resistant bacteria. Recent studies indicate that spider venoms are the source for the identification of novel antimicrobial peptides. In the present study, we isolated and characterized an antibacterial peptide named lycosin-II from the venom of the spider Lycosa singoriensis. It contains 21 amino acid residue lacking cysteine residues and forms a typical linear amphipathic and cationic α-helical conformation. Lycosin-II displays potent bacteriostatic effect on the tested drug-resistant bacterial strains isolated from hospital patients, including multidrug-resistant A. baumannii, which has presented a huge challenge for the infection therapy. The inhibitory ability of lycosin-II might derive from its binding to cell membrane, because Mg2+ could compete with the binding sites to reduce the bacteriostatic potency of lycosin-II. Our data suggest that lycosin-II might be a lead in the development

The inhibitor cystine knot (ICK) is an unusual three-disulfide architecture in which one of the disulfide bonds bisects a loop formed by the two other disulfide bridges and the intervening sections of the protein backbone. Peptides containing an ICK motif are frequently considered to have high levels of thermal, chemical and enzymatic stability due to cross-bracing provided by the disulfide bonds. Experimental studies supporting this contention are rare, in particular for spider-venom toxins, which represent the largest diversity of ICK peptides. We used ω-hexatoxin-Hv1a (Hv1a), an insecticidal toxin from the deadly Australian funnel-web spider, as a model system to examine the contribution of the cystine knot to the stability of ICK peptides. We show that Hv1a is highly stable when subjected to temperatures up to 75 °C, pH values as low as 1, and various organic solvents. Moreover, Hv1a was highly resistant to digestion by proteinase K and when incubated in insect hemolymph and human plasma. We

A new generation of environmentally safe insecticides that only target disease-carrying insects or those that damage crops is emerging from surprising research into the venom of one of the worlds deadliest creatures - the Australian Blue Mountains funnel-web spider.. The spiders potentially fatal effect on humans is an unlucky side-effect of just one of the 200 or so compounds its venom contains. But Dr Glenn King, professor of Biochemistry and Microbiology at the University of Connecticut Health Centre in the U.S. has said that many of the other compounds kill particular insects and are otherwise harmless.. This means the spiders venom has great potential to be developed as insecticides and could be used in two ways; as conventional sprayed pesticides, or delivered by insect-specific viruses that have been genetically engineered to contain a spider-venom gene.. "The latter approach is actually better from an environmental point of view because it is like a magic bullet that targets a ...

Inhibits tetrodotoxin-sensitive voltage-gated sodium channels (Nav) by binding to site 3. Slows the inactivation, and causes a prolongation of action potential duration resulting in repetitive firing in autonomic and motor nerve fibers. Does not depolarize the resting potential. Does not affect tetrodotoxin-resistant sodium channels. This lethal neurotoxin is active on both insect and mammalian voltage-gated sodium channels. Pan-neuronal expression in Drosophila is lethal but flies engineered to express the toxin only in pacemaker neurons have profound defects in circadian rhythm but a normal lifespan.

This lethal neurotoxin (without cyclization at position 53) inhibits neuronal voltage-gated sodium channel hNav1.7/SCN9A (IC(50) is 22-33 nM), rNav1.2/SCN2A (IC(50) is 150 nM), and rNav1.3/SCN3A (IC(50) is 338 nM) (PubMed:18628201, PubMed:20855463, PubMed:25658507, PubMed:23760503). It inhibits activation of sodium channel by trapping the voltage sensor of domain II (DIIS4) in the closed configuration (PubMed:18628201, PubMed:23760503). The toxin neither shifts the Nav1.7 activation curve nor modifies the slope factor (PubMed:20855463). It does not slow fast-inactivation of hNav1.7 channels (PubMed:20855463). In addition, it has only a weak affinity for lipid membranes (PubMed:18054060, PubMed:28115115). This toxin also exists with a pyroglutamate at position 53 (PubMed:23826086). The sole difference observed between modified (mHwTx-IV) and unmodified toxins is that moderate or high depolarization voltages (200 mV) permit the unmodified toxin to dissociate, whereas mHwTx-IV toxin does not dissociate,

Curarized cutaneous pectoris nerve-muscle preparations from frogs were stimulated at 10/s or at 2/s for periods ranging from 20 min to 4 h. End plate potential were recorded intracellularly and used to estimate the quantity of transmitter secreted during the period of stimulation. At the ends of the periods of stimulation the preparations were either fixed for electron microscopy or treated with black widow spider venom to determine the quantities of transmitter remainind in the terminal. Horseradish peroxidase or dextran was added to the bathing solution and used as a tracer to detect the formation of vesicles from the axolemma. During 4 h of stimulation at 2/s many new vesicles were formed from the axolemma and the quantity of transmitter secreted was several times greater than the quantity in the initial store. After this period of stimulation, the terminals were severely depleted of transmitter, but not of vesicles, and their general morphological organization was normal. During 20 min of ...
A new peptide antagonist of voltage-activated calcium channels was purified from venom of the funnel web spider, Agelenopsis aperta. This 48-amino acid peptide, omega-agatoxin (omega-Aga)-IVB, was found to be a potent (Kd, approximately 3 nM) blocker of P-type calcium channels in rat cerebellar Purkinje neurons but had no activity against T-type, L-type, or N-type calcium channels in a variety of neurons. The calcium channel-blocking properties of omega-Aga-IVB were similar to those of another toxin, omega-Aga-IVA, which has 71% amino acid identity with omega-Aga-IVB. The 10-fold greater abundance of omega-Aga-IVB in venom allowed structural studies using NMR spectroscopy. The three-dimensional structure derived from NMR data resulted in a proposed disulfide bond configuration for the peptide. Although omega-Aga-IVB has fewer basic and more acidic residues than does omega-Aga-IVA, the two toxins show conservation of positively charged residues in a mid-peptide region that is predicted to form ...
The deserts of Phoenix are filled all kinds of creepy crawlers, but none more intimidating than the Black Widow. Black Widows are commonly found in Phoenix homes. These spiders are not extremely aggressive but hide out in attics, garages, in wood piles, and bushes waiting for other bugs to catch. It is pretty easy to identify a Black Widow. They are black with a sizeable abdomen. The abdomen usually carries a very uncommon red hourglass mark, although sometimes there are just random red lines or no red at all. ...

Most tarantulas should be considered a display only animal, but some can be gently handled and the Mexican Red-Knee is known for a fairly docile species, but can also be somewhat skittich and occasionally aggressive. Handling should be kept to a minimum as tarantulas in general are not the sort of pet that needs or enjoys human interaction. If you must pick up your tarantula, do so by placing one hand in front of it while gently nudging its back legs to move it onto your palm. Gripping a tarantula by the body between the second and third sets of legs is not recommended unless you are an experienced keeper. Please be aware that tarantulas can and will bite if they feel threatened. A bite from a Mexican Red-Rump is comparable to a bee sting. This species also has type III urticating hairs on its abdomen which it can flick towards potential attackers. These hairs can cause allergic reactions, rashes and itching. Always use caution when handling any tarantula ...
The present study aimed to cytogenetically analyse five Ctenidae species Ctenus ornatus (Keyserling, 1877), Ctenus medius (Keyserling, 1891), Phoneutria nigriventer (Keyserling, 1891), Viracucha andicola (Simon, 1906), and Enoploctenus cyclothorax (Philip Bertkau, 1880), from Brazil. All species presented a 2n♂ = 28 except for V. andicola, which showed 2n♂ = 29. Analysis of segregation and behavior of sex chromosomes during male meiosis showed a sex chromosome system of the type X1X20 in species with 28 chromosomes and X1X2X30 in V. andicola. C banding stained with fluorochromes CMA3 and DAPI revealed two distributions patterns of GC-rich heterochromatin: (i) in terminal regions of most chromosomes, as presented in C. medius, P. nigriventer, E. cyclothorax and V. andicola and (ii) in interstitial regions of most chromosomes, in addition to terminal regions, as observed for C. ornatus. The population of Ubatuba (São Paulo State) of this same species displayed an additional accumulation of GC-rich
The venom from predators such as snakes, toads and spiders have been an excellent source of molecules with diverse properties that scientists have put to use for studying properties of neurons. For years, neurobiologists have used alpha-bungarotoxin from the venom of cobras to inactivate an acetylcholine receptor in neurons, with numerous applications for experimental research. Dr. Michael Nitaback of the Yale School of Medicine and colleagues have developed an innovative method, dubbed "toxineering," to screen approximately 100 different peptides (i.e., small proteins) found in the venom of a Peruvian green-velvet tarantula (Thrixopelma pruriens) to see if any of these peptides might be used as a painkiller.. Toxineering uses techniques of molecular biology to generate a small library of different toxins found in the spider venom. The library is then screened to identify a molecule which binds and blocks only a specific ion channel of interest. The research team was focused in particular on an ...

Spiders (order Araneae) are air-breathing arthropods that have eight legs and chelicerae with fangs that inject venom. Spiders have the most centralized nervous systems of all arthropods. Almost all spider species are predators, mostly preying on insects, but also other spiders. Spiders use a wide range of strategies to capture prey: trapping it in sticky webs, lassoing it with sticky bolas, mimicking the prey to avoid detection, or running it down. Most detect prey mainly by sensing vibrations, but the active hunters have acute vision.. aran, lat-m, mygal, tarent, tarent-c, ther. ...

Back to their venom: it contains a substance known as atraxotoxin (good name for a rock band?), which is highly toxic to primates. We humans are therefore advised to steer clear of these spiders. The males seek out water, and are therefore often found floating in pools. But they have survive such conditions for 24-hours, and can still deliver a full envenomation bite if plucked from the water without care. Said the funnel-web spider to its bitten savior, "You knew what I was when you pulled me from the water ...

Their fangs (actually Chelicera) have been grossly elongate and there is a large neck like elongation on their cephalothorax which give them their weird pelican like look. These adaptions are specifically designed to give then a fast strike with a long reach, a huge advantage when they are hunting the particular prey that they specialize on. The victims of these bizarre species are, in fact, other spiders. They hunt other spiders by following the web trails that spiders leave behind as they walk around. They are able to move across the web of other spiders without being detected or to pluck the web to coax the other spider to attack them. They impale their prey on one of their massive fangs and let them slowly die on the end of the fang before they eat them ...

R-type Ca2+ currents have been pharmacologically defined by their resistance to blockers of L-type, N-type, and P/Q-type Ca2+ channels [512] and by their sensitivity to SNX-482, a peptide component of spider venom [513]. ...
sticky threads elevated rates of diversification among the araneoid spiders, the new analysis indicates that the highest rates of diversification likely occurred among the RTA spiders followed by mygalomorphs and then araneoids as a distant third, the latter driven-in part-by the secondarily non-orb weaving theridiids and linyphiids.. This interestingly implies that other foraging strategies like cursorial hunting and irregular sheets were a more successful strategy than the orb, probably related to the enormous diversification of insects (among them litter inhabiting ants and beetles) during the Cretaceous Terrestrial Revolution..

The acquisition of a novel function, or neofunctionalisation, protects duplicated genes from redundancy and subsequent loss, and is a major force that drives adaptive evolution. Neofunctionalisation has been inferred for many duplicated genes based on differences in regulation between the parental gene and its duplicate. However, only few studies actually link the new function of a duplicated gene to a novel morphological or physiological character of the organism. Here we show that the duplication of dachshund (dac) in arachnids (spiders and allies) is linked with the evolution of a novel leg segment, the patella. We have studied dac genes in two distantly related spider species, the entelegyne spider Parasteatoda tepidariorum and the haplogyne spider Pholcus phalangioides. Both species possess two paralogous dac genes that duplicated before the split between entelegyne and haplogyne spiders. In contrast to the evolutionarily highly conserved dac1, its duplicate dac2 is strongly expressed in ...

For his postdoctoral studies, Avi joined the laboratory of Prof. David Julius at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), where he studied the somatosensory receptors of the TRP family. These receptors have an essential role in the detection of temperature and chemical stimuli throughout the body. Additionally, the somatosensory system plays a protective role by detecting noxious and inflammatory stimuli. The Julius group has pioneered the use of expression cloning to identify key signaling molecules in the somatosensory system and, through seminal contributions over the past two decades, has become a leading lab in the field of somatosensation. During his postdoc, Avi identified a new peptide toxin from the aggressive Chinese earth tiger spider (Ornithoctonus huwenum). This toxin specifically activates the capsaicin or heat receptor (TRPV1) in both native (trigeminal sensory neurons) and heterologous (HEK293 and Xenopus laevis oocytes) systems. This novel peptide has unusual ...
Dr. Kwok responded: Probably NOT. Kids can accidentally swallow tiny spiders while playing outdoors. The amount of venom in a tiny bug should not be a problem if swallowed and digested, or if rolled around in the mouth and spit out. A big poisonous spider biting a kid inside his mouth would be bad. If a kid chomped on a spider, its possible that venom could be absorbed in the mouth; but in the stomach, acid should disable venom.

Jumping spiders (Salticidae) are easily distinguished from other spiders by their four big eyes on the face and four smaller eyes on top of the head. Around the world there are probably more than 5000 species of jumping spiders.. Jumping spiders are charming spiders that look up and watch you. Their excellent vision allows them to hunt much as do cats, spotting prey from long distances, creeping up then pouncing using their jumping ability. Although a jumping spider can jump more than thirty times its body length, none of its legs has enlarged muscles. The power for jumping probably comes from a quick contraction of muscles in the front part of the body increasing the blood pressure, which causes the legs to extend rapidly much as in the toy frogs that hop when you squeeze a bulb.. Their vision also allows communications by visual means, such as the elaborate courtship dances that males perform. Salticids are perhaps as old and diverse as mammals, though not many humans know their world. Many ...

We investigate acute effects of axial stretch, applied by carbon fibers (CFs), on diastolic Ca2+ spark rate in rat isolated cardiomyocytes. CFs were attached either to both cell ends (to maximize the stretched region), or to the center and one end of the cell (to compare responses in stretched and nonstretched half-cells). Sarcomere length was increased by 8.01+/-0.94% in the stretched cell fraction, and time series of XY confocal images were recorded to monitor diastolic Ca2+ spark frequency and dynamics. Whole-cell stretch causes an acute increase of Ca2+ spark rate (to 130.7+/-6.4%) within 5 seconds, followed by a return to near background levels (to 104.4+/-5.1%) within 1 minute of sustained distension. Spark rate increased only in the stretched cell region, without significant differences in spark amplitude, time to peak, and decay time constants of sparks in stretched and nonstretched areas. Block of stretch-activated ion channels (2 micromol/L GsMTx-4), perfusion with Na+/Ca2+-free ...

Going courting for a male takes a little preparation. Those palps are nowhere near his reproductive tract, so what he has to do is spin a tiny scrap of web and ejaculate a bit of semen onto it; he then dips his palps into it and fills a hollow channel in them. Thats right, the prelude to spider mating is for the male to charge his face up with sperm. This can actually take quite a while, a half hour to several hours, so its an important part of the process.. Another important and dangerous step is flagging down a willing female. Spiders often have elaborate courtship rituals, with fancy dancing, wig-wagging palps, and fragrant pheromones, all working to convince the female, who is a ferocious predator, that the male is friendly and conspecific and wouldnt she like a little wink-wink-nudge-nudge instead of or before eating him? I can sympathize. I remember when I first asked my wife-to-be out on a date in high school, and I was as nervous as if there were a worry that she might sink her fangs ...

You guys, this is probably going to sound a little out there. Honestly, Im reluctant to even bring it up. But Ive been thinking about it for a long time, and, well, I cant shake the feeling that our friend Dave is actually just a bunch of spiders living inside an extremely realistic human shell and operating it like a puppet.. Okay. I see the looks on your faces. I know it sounds far-fetched. Jeanine, youre married to the guy, for Christs sake, so I can only imagine the position this is putting you in. Still, Dave is one of our oldest friends and I think we owe it to him to be honest about the situation and accept the possibility that he might just be a six-foot-tall skin-sack, being puppeteered by tens of thousands of angry spiders.. Do I have proof? Yes and no. You know how sometimes you feel like youre being watched? You dont know why or how, but you can feel it in your gut? Well, this is like that, except that in this case my feeling is that Dave is actually just a human-shaped ...

Fact: In a surprisingly widespread urban legend, a nameless woman is bitten by a spider (usually on her cheek) while on vacation. She later develops a swelling, from which, in due course, baby spiders emerge! Somehow or other, the venom must have transformed into eggs. Spiders, need I say, do not find the human body a suitable site for egglaying, and no actual case anything like this can be found anywhere in scientific or medical literature.. That is, unless you count as scientific literature the book Dancing in the Mind Field by Nobel Prize chemist Kary Mullis. In one chapter, Mullis claims to have been bitten by a brown recluse spider in California (where no such spiders exist), that other spiders came back to feed on the resulting wound, and that female brown recluses lay their eggs in such wounds to feed their babies. All this is sheer fantasy. As the name implies, real recluse spiders avoid humans like the plague if at all possible.. This legend is still alive and well; in September 2008 a ...
Two new peptides, MCh-1 and MCh-2, along with three known trypsin inhibitors (MCTI-I, MCTI-II and MCTI-III), were isolated from the seeds of the tropical vine Momordica charantia. The sequences of the peptides were determined using mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy. Using a strategy involving partial reduction and stepwise alkylation of the peptides, followed by enzymatic digestion and tandem mass spectrometry sequencing, the disulfide connectivity of MCh-1 was elucidated to be CysI-CysIV, CysII-CysV and CysIII-CysVI. The three-dimensional structures of MCh-1 and MCh-2 were determined using NMR spectroscopy and found to contain the inhibitor cystine knot (ICK) motif. The sequences of the novel peptides differ significantly from peptides previously isolated from this plant. Therefore, this study expands the known peptide diversity in M. charantia and the range of sequences that can be accommodated by the ICK motif. Furthermore, we show that a stable two-disulfide intermediate is involved in ...
Treatment is based on the severity of poisoning from the bite; the majority of cases do not require medical care, and patients with localised pain, swelling and redness usually only require local application of ice and simple oral analgesia such as paracetamol. Pressure immobilisation of the wound site is not recommended. Keeping the victim still and calm is beneficial.[57][126] Hospital assessment is recommended if simple pain relief does not resolve local pain, or systemic symptoms occur.[127][128] Opioid analgesics may be necessary to relieve pain.[102] Antivenom has been historically given for adults suffering severe local pain or systemic symptoms consistent with latrodectism, which include pain and swelling spreading proximally from site, distressing local or systemic pain, chest pain, abdominal pain, or excessive sweating (diaphoresis).[129] A significant proportion of bites will not result in envenomation or any symptoms developing; around 2-20% of bite victims have been treated with ...
