Mesobuthus martensii (Chinese scorpion)

Venom composition Unfortunately, there is no transcriptomic or proteomic analysis reporting the venom composition of M.martensii yet. However, a first draft of the genome has been submitted. A total of 116 neurotoxin genes have been reported, the prediction can be viewed below. NaTx (sodium channel toxins), KTx (potassium channel toxins), ClTx (chloride channel toxins) and CaTx (ryanodine receptor toxins) (Cao et al., 2013).
