Mu-cyrtautoxin-As1a - P49268 (TXP3_APOSC)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Number of PDB entries for P49268: 1
The recombinant mu-cyrtautoxin-As1a potently and voltage-independently blocks voltage-gated sodium channels (Nav) of insects. It acts by pluging the outer vestibule of the channel. It acts in combination with a weak (30%) voltage-independent block of insect voltage-gated calcium (Cav) channels (low-voltage and high-voltage channels). Tested on DUM neurons, it inhibits sodium currents with an IC(50) of 540 nM (and a Hill coefficient >1, reflecting an incomplete block at higher concentrations). It induces flaccid paralysis in adult Australian sheep blowfly Lucilia cuprina (PubMed:23473802). Is both paralytic and lethal, when injected into lepidopteran larvae. Is a slower acting toxin, being lethal at 24 hours, but not paralytic at 1 hour post-injection (PubMed:1440641). (data source: UniProt  )
The presence of a 'disulfide through disulfide knot' structurally defines this protein as a knottin. (data source: UniProt  )

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in red indicates combined ranges of Homology Models from SBKB   and the Protein Model Portal
