Title: Sarafotoxins
Additional Names: SRTx
Literature References: Family of vasoactive toxins isolated from the venom of the Israeli burrowing asp, Atractaspis engaddensis. Several isoforms exist, all are closely related in structure and biological activity to the mammalian endothelins, q.v.; both families show highly conserved sequences of 21 amino acids with 2 fixed disulfide bridges.
