P01502 - MEL_APIDO

Protein

Melittin

Gene

MELT

Organism
Apis dorsata (Giant honeybee)
Status
Reviewed - Annotation score: 3 out of 5- Experimental evidence at protein leveli
  1. Functioni

    Main toxin of bee venom with strong hemolytic activity. Integrates into cell membranes and has multiple effects, probably, as a result of its interaction with negatively charged phospholipids. It inhibits well known transport pumps such as the Na+-K+-ATPase and the H+-K+-ATPase. Increases the permeability of cell membranes to ions, particularly Na+ and indirectly Ca2+, because of the Na+-Ca2+-exchange.
