ASIC Modulator Array Library

Library Code: T-VDAASIC
ASIC channel tools from theraphosids (tarantulas) and snakes are the most potent and selective agents currently known. The ASIC Targeted Venom Discovery Array™ libraries contain pure venom fractions from 12, 24, 48 or 96 species optimized for identification of novel tools. Each array contains literature-cited, characterized venoms active on ASIC channels as positive controls. Other venom fractions making up the library have been specially selected by our drug discovery scientists to maximize novel hit potential.
T-VDAASIC control venoms include: 
  • Psalmopoeus cambridgei (Trinidad chevron tarantula) which contains Psalmotoxin, a selective blocker of ASIC1a channels1
  • Dendroaspis polylepis (Black mamba) venom which contains Mambalgins that block ASIC1a/2a heteromers2
  • Dendroaspis angusticeps (Eastern green mamba) venom which contains mambalgin-3 that blocks ASIC1a and ASIC1b channels as well as 1a/2b heteromers3.
