Venom A to Z – M is for muscarinic toxins

Venom A to Z – M is for muscarinic toxins. These toxins from mamba venoms were among the first toxins found to modulate G- protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). These receptors are key targets for drug discovery of many diseases and the identification that three finger toxins (TFT’s) bind GPCRs has opened up this area of research.
