Abstract

Recent investigations of peptide fractions from cobra venoms suggest that the most potent acute toxicity arises from a curare-like block of the action of acetylcholine at the skeletal myoneural junction. I wish to report the effects on myoneural transmission of toxin T₃ from Naja naja siamensis—(Kaouthia) (Thailand cobra) venom, a pure peptide of known amino-acid composition.
