General description

Kurtoxin is hydrophobic in nature and shares sequence identity with α-scorpion and has cysteine-stabilized α-helix and β-sheet (CSαβ) motif. It interacts with N-type, and P-type calcium (Ca2+) channels as well.

Application

Kurtoxin has been used as a blocker of T-type and R-Type voltage-gated calcium channels (VGGCs) in hippocampal neurons.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Kurtoxin is isolated from the venom of the South African scorpion Parabuthus transvaalicus. It associates with voltage-gated sodium channels and delays their inactivation.
