Chemistry, isolation and microbioassays of arthropod neurotoxins

, : Chemistry, isolation and microbioassays of arthropod neurotoxins. Pesticide chemistry: Advances in International Research, Development, and Legislation: Proceedings of the 7th International Congress of Pesticide chemistry IUPAC (Ed. 1): 75-85

Three groups of arthropods have developed specialized neurotoxins in venom-producing organs: the scorpions spiders and hymenopteran insects (bees wasps and ants. These neurotoxins, which have different targets (the voltage-dependent sodium and potassium channels involved in the conduction of action potentials, and synaptic transmission in the central nervous system and neuromuscular junctions) may provide leads to a new generation of pharmaceuticals or pesticides.

Expression of excision repair cross-complementation group 1 (ERCC1), p53, or thioredoxin (TRX) is reported to be correlated with resistance to platinum-based drugs. The authors evaluated whether ERCC1, p53, or TRX expression could predict progres...
