Animal toxins: state of the art - perspectives in health and biotechnology

Abstract: This single-volume edition presents for the first time results of several studies with different perspectives on the real possibilities of the use of animal venoms and toxins in the biotechnology industry. Animal Toxins consists of 39 articles, signed by renowned experts of various nationalities. The state of the art in compounds derived from venoms of marine animals, spiders and scorpions, lizards, snakes, among others, are the focus of this publication which aims to meet scientists, students and university r… Show more

“…Peptide toxin discovery has been traditionally approached by bioassay-guided chromatographic fractionation and further characterization of bioactive molecules [1]. So far the number of peptides sequences reported is extremely inferior to the 20 million peptides [2] estimated for all animal venoms combined; therefore most of their chemical diversity remains uncharacterized [3].…”

“…Envenoming is neglected in many countries, which makes it a public health concern (2) (3) (4) . Snake venoms are fascinating models for drug design (1) and their antidotes are still under development. As a result, research in this area has been in existence since the 19 th century (5) .…”

“…According to Warrel (1), "Snake venoms are rich in protein and peptide toxins that have specificity for a wide range of tissue receptors, making them clinically challenging and scientifically fascinating, especially for drug design". In 2009, Lima et al (3) dedicated an entire book to this subject, entitled Animal toxins: state of the art -perspectives in health and biotechnology. The authors discuss in several chapters the possible mechanisms and the probable uses of these molecules in the diagnosis and treatment of different diseases.…”
