Reviewed-Annotation score:

Annotation score:5 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the ‘correct annotation’ for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>
-Experimental evidence at protein leveli <p>This indicates the type of evidence that supports the existence of the protein. Note that the ‘protein existence’ evidence does not give information on the accuracy or correctness of the sequence(s) displayed.<p><a href='/help/protein_existence' target='_top'>More...</a></p>

Reversibly and voltage-independently blocks both mid-low- (M-LVA) and high-voltage-activated (HVA) calcium channels in cockroach DUM neurons. Lethal to many insect orders but not toxic to mice or rabbits. May target the insect high-voltage-activated calcium channel Dmca1D. Also inhibits acarines calcium channels. An extremely high toxin concentration partially inhibits Cav1.2/CACNA1C, Cav2.1/CACNA1A and Cav2.2/CACNA1B calcium channel of rats. As for omega-AcTx-Hv2a, the phenotypic effect of injection of this toxin into lone star ticks (Amblyomma americanum) is curling of all eight legs into closed loops.5 Publications

Miscellaneous

When expressed in tobacco plants, the toxin induces a 100% mortality of insect larvae H.armigera and S.littoralis.

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1.
