Venoms to Drugs

Venom from cone snails, scorpions, spiders, snakes and other species continue to provide an immense reservoir of potent bioactive peptides that target specific enzymes, ion channels and receptors. As such they represent major sources of lead compounds for both the development of pharmacological tools and novel drugs
