However, during the past decades, only a few spider venoms have been studied in sufficient detail, and therefore less than 0. The current study contributes to proving that Lycosa singoriensis peptides are highly diverse.

Furthermore, analysis of the sequences revealed that peptides from the first group have no cysteine residues, and the ones of the second group contain 4 or 5 disulfide bonds, whereas those of the last group have more than 5 disulfide bonds unpublished data.

These are often uncovered when dp. The third group consists of peptides with mass range from 7, to 8, Da, which corresponds to more than 60 amino acid residues. The primary so of spider venoms is to kill or paralyze prey.
