      • Huwentoxin IV is a peptide toxin originally isolated from the venom of the Chinese bird-eating spider Haplopelma schmitdi that acts as a potent and selective NaV1.7 channel blocker displaying an IC50 value of 26 nM1. m3-Huwentoxin IV is a mutated form of the toxin with significant increased potency towards NaV1.7, displaying an IC50 value of 0.4 nM1.

        There are nine mammalian subtypes of voltage-gated sodium (NaV) channels: NaV1.1–NaV1.9. These channels responsible for propagating action potentials in excitable cells and considered to be important therapeutic targets for a wide variety of pathophysiological conditions such as cardiac arrhythmia, and epilepsy2,3.

        NaV1.7 channel plays an important role in the human pain signaling pathway and it is an important therapeutic target for the treatment of chronic pain2,3.

    m3-Huwentoxin IV (#STH-102) is a highly pure, synthetic, and biologically active peptide toxin. It is a mutated variant of Huwentoxin IV, a peptide toxin originally isolated from the Chinese bird-eating spider Haplopelma schmitdi venom. m3-Huwentoxin IV is a significantly more potent NaV1.7 channel bocker, displaying an IC50 value of 0.4 nM.
