E-Book Venoms to Drugs: Venom as a Source for the Development of Human Therapeutics (RSC Drug Discovery) Full ePub A volume that will provide a comprehensive and up-to-date review on the potential of peptides and proteins from animal venoms as human therapeutics. Topics covered will include: the evolution and ecology of venomous animals; the chemistry and structural biology of animal venoms; venom-based drug discovery: proteomic and transcriptomic approaches; bioassays, high-throughput screening methods and target identification; reptile, cone snail, scorpion, spider-venom peptides and exotic venoms as a platform for drug development; selected case study examples such as Prialt(R) and Xen2174, exenatide and ShK; the development of venom natriuretic peptides for treating congestive heart failure; engineering venom peptides to improve their stability and bioactivity and manufacturing of venomderived therapeutic peptides, prospects and pitfalls. The readership will be pharmacologists, toxicologists, biochemists and pharmaceutical scientists working in drug development and the chemical sciences in both industry and academia.
