Abstract: Background: Androctonus mauretanicus (Am) is one of the most hazardous scorpions in Morocco and has a highly toxic venom responsible for severe cases of envenomation. However, few studies have focused on decifering its proteic composition. Objectives: Herein, we aim to map out the complete proteome of the Am venom in order to highlight its complexity and the polymorphism of its toxic content. This, in turn, will lead to a deeper understanding of the toxins’ mechanism of action and will help uncover those w…
