      • 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.

      • 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.
