Abstract: The two most basic beta-bungarotoxins (beta 3- and beta 4-toxins) and another, less neurotoxic beta-bungarotoxin (beta 5-toxin) were purified from Bungarus multicinctus venom, by a combination of CM-Sephadex C-25 column chromatography and Sephadex G-75 gel filtration. The three toxins consisted of two dissimilar polypeptides (A chain, 120 amino acid residues; B chain, 60 residues). The LD50 values of the beta 3- and beta 4-toxins were 0.066 micrograms and 0.072 micrograms/g of mouse, respectively, and their ph…
