Micrurus clarki is a rare coral snake, distributed from the Southeastern Pacific region of Costa Rica (orange shade in the figure) to Western Colombia. Researchers from the University of Costa Rica and the University of Antioquia, studied its venom for the first time. By applying proteomic tools through an analytical strategy known as 'venomics', a detailed portrait of the venom protein composition was obtained. This was complemented with a characterization of toxic activities and antibody neutralization studies, together with the isolation of a novel 'three-finger toxin', clarkitoxin-I, the first protein to be sequenced from the venom of this snake species.View this article.
