We now have supplies of the voltage dependent Ca++ channel blocking toxin, 
taicatoxin (isolated from venom of Oxyuranus scutellatus scutellatus - 
Australian taipan snake venom), which selectively blocks VDCCs in cardiac 
membranes (specific to high threshold L-type Ca++ current).

See Possani L.D. et al (1992) Toxicon 30, 1343-, for details of the 
activity and structure of this toxin.

Price: US$900.00 per milligram plus freight.

Email for further information. We also produce prothrombin activators, 
presynapticly neurotoxic phospholipase A2 toxins and a range of other 
natural chemicals sourced from animal venom.

Managing Director - The Austoxin Group
