Access from EThOS:
Peptides from venom of marine cone snails are regarded as promising novel ligands in drug discovery race. They are highly specific, up to subtype level, leading to new therapeutic insights for clinical and neuropharmacological research and applications. In this study, a novel peptide AMIXA, belongs to the P-superfamily, has been characterised pharmacologically and is classed as a π-conopeptide according to its pharmacological function.
