    Structure
    • µ-Conotoxin PIIIA
    Molecular formula C103H165N40O28S6.
    Activity μ-Conotoxin PIIIA reversibly blocks mammalian skeletal muscle voltage-gated Na+ channels (NaV1.4, IC50 of 44 nM), Type II (NaV1.2) and PN1 (NaV1.7) neuronal voltage-gated Na+ channels (IC50 of 640 nM) by binding to site I domain of the channel. In addition, it blocks irreversibly amphibian muscle Na+ channels1.

    Our bioassay
    • µ-Conotoxin PIIIA
      Alomone Labs μ-Conotoxin PIIIA inhibits NaV1.4 channel currents expressed in Xenopus oocytes.
      NaV1.4 currents were elicited by application of voltage ramp of 60 ms from holding potential of -100 mV to +40 mV. A. Time course of peak current amplitude before (black) and during (green) application of 20 nM μ-Conotoxin PIIIA (#STC-400) applied for 180 s. B. Superimposed example current traces before (black) and during (green) application of the toxin, taken from the experiment in A.

    Scientific background µ-Conotoxin PIIIA is a 22 amino acid peptidyl toxin isolated from the Conus purpurascens (Purple cone) venom and belongs to the conotoxin M superfamily1. It reversibly blocks mammalian skeletal muscle voltage-gated Na+ channels (NaV1.4, IC50 of 44 nM), Type II (NaV1.2) and PN1 (NaV1.7) neuronal voltage-gated Na+ channels (IC50 of 640 nM) by binding to site I domain of the channel1-3. In addition, it irreversibly blocks amphibian muscle Na+ channels1.
