Alpha-conotoxin ArIA

Gene

Organism
Conus arenatus (Sand-dusted cone)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Alpha-conotoxin ArIA: alpha-conotoxins act on postsynaptic membranes, they bind to the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR) and thus inhibit them. This toxin acts as a competitive inhibitor and is 3-fold more potent on alpha-7/CHRNA7 nAChRs (IC50=6 nM) than on alpha-3-beta-2/CHRNA3-CHRNB2 nAChR (IC50=18 nM).1 Publication
Alpha-conotoxin ArIB: acts as a competitive inhibitor and is 33-fold more potent on alpha-7/CHRNA7 nAChRs (IC50=1.8 nM) than on alpha-3-beta-2/CHRNA3-CHRNB2 nAChR (IC50=60.1 nM).1 Publication

Miscellaneous

The mutant ArIB[V30L,V35D] is a potent and selective competitive antagonist of rat and human alpha-7/CHRNA7 nAChRs, making it an attractive probe for this receptor subtype.2 Publications
