Name Conotoxins
Equivalent Terms alpha Conotoxin | alpha-Conotoxin | alpha Conotoxins | alpha-Conotoxins | Conotoxin | mu Conotoxin | mu-Conotoxin | mu Conotoxins | mu-Conotoxins
Definition Peptide neurotoxins from the marine fish-hunting snails of the genus CONUS. They contain 13 to 29 amino acids which are strongly basic and are highly cross-linked by disulfide bonds. There are three types of conotoxins, omega-, alpha-, and mu-. OMEGA-CONOTOXINS inhibit voltage-activated entry of calcium into the presynaptic membrane and therefore the release of ACETYLCHOLINE. Alpha-conotoxins inhibit the postsynaptic acetylcholine receptor. Mu-conotoxins prevent the generation of muscle action potentials.
