Venom A-Z X is for X-ray Structures

Venom A-Z X is for X-ray Structures – The structure of a molecule as determined through X-ray crystallography.  Crystallisation of snake venom components have produced key research; as an example, research into the venom of Naja kaouthia has produced knowledge of cobra venom β-nerve growth factor.  Generally researchers report high quality crystal formation and good results, a key part in the determination of any structure for potential future drug discovery.
