  • Diamphotoxin
    Diamphotoxin is a toxin produced by larvae and pupae of the beetle genus Diamphidia.
  • Maitotoxin
    Maitotoxin (or MTX) is an extremely potent toxin produced by Gambierdiscus toxicus, a dinoflagellate species.
  • Palytoxin
    Palytoxin is an intense vasoconstrictor, and is considered to be one of the most toxic non-protein substances known, second only to maitotoxin in terms of toxicity in mice.
  • Agelenin
    Agelenin, also called U1-agatoxin-Aop1a, is an antagonist of the presynaptic P-type calcium channel in insects.
  • Latarcin
    Latarcins are short antimicrobial peptides from the venom of the spider Lachesana tarabaevi.
  • Complanine
    Complanine is an quaternary ammonium compound isolated from the marine fireworm Eurythoe complanata.
  • Oxotoxin
    Oxotoxins, or oxytoxins, are a group of neurotoxins present in the venom of lynx spiders belonging to the genus Oxyopes, hence the name oxytoxin.
  • Margatoxin
    Margatoxin (MgTX) is a peptide that selectively inhibits Kv1.
  • Hefutoxin
    The kappa- Hefutoxin 1 and 2 (κ- Hefutoxin1/2) are toxic components in the venom of Heterometrus fulvipes that belongs to the family scorpionidae.
  • Joro toxin
    Joro spider toxin (joro toxin, JSTX) - a toxin which was originally extracted from the spider Nephila clavata venom.
  • Calitoxin
    Calitoxin, also known as CLX, is a sea anemone neurotoxin produced by the sea anemone Calliactis parasitica.
  • Agitoxin
    Agitoxin is a toxin found in the venom of the scorpion Leiurus quinquestriatus hebraeus (yellow scorpion).
  • Eledoisin
    Eledoisin is an undecapeptide of mollusk origin, belonging to the tachykinin family of neuropeptides.
  • Sea anemone neurotoxin
    Sea anemone neurotoxin is the name given to neurotoxins produced by sea anemones with related structure and function.
  • Androctonus australis hector insect toxin
    Androctonus australis hector insect toxin also known as AaHIT is a scorpion toxin which affects voltage-gated sodium channels.
  • Slotoxin
    Slotoxin is a peptide from Centruroides noxius Hoffmann scorpion venom.
  • Conotoxin
    A conotoxin is one of a group of neurotoxic peptides isolated from the venom of the marine cone snail, genus Conus.
  • Onchidal
    Onchidal is a naturally occurring toxin produced as a defensive secretion by the mollusc Onchidella binneyi and several other related species in Onchidella,a genus of small, air-breathing sea slugs.
  • Psalmotoxin
    Psalmotoxin (PcTx1) is a spider toxin from the venom of the Trinidad tarantula Psalmopoeus cambridgei.
  • Psymberin
    Psymberin, also known as irciniastatin A, is a cytotoxin derived from sea sponges.
  • Mastoparan
    Mastoparan is a peptide toxin from wasp venom.
  • AG 489
    AG 489 (or agatoxin 489) is a component of the venom produced by Agelenopsis aperta.
  • Insect toxin
    Insect toxins are various protein toxins produced by insect species.
  • Scorpion toxin
