Abstract

A postsynaptic neurotoxin was purified from Daboia russelli russelli venom using gel filtration, ion-exchange chromatography and reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography. The N-terminal sequence, molecular mass and pharmacological activities of the neurotoxin/cytotoxin indicate that it is a short-chain neurotoxin like that found in Elapid venom. This is the first report on the presence of such a postsynaptic neurotoxin from D. r. russelli venom.
