Venom protein family

This page gives a list of venom protein families that are well described in the literature or found in different taxonomic groups. Those that are specific to a venomous taxa are marked by an asterisk. A detailed information of these families is available by clicking on the "protein family" blue hyperlink.

To have an idea of which taxon is known to belong to a protein family, image logos or dashes are indicated in the table. Logos show that at least one venom protein belongs to the family, while dashes indicate that no venom protein has been described yet to belong to the family. Logos are clickable and provide a direct access to related UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot entries.
