Spider Neurotoxins, Short Linear Cationic Peptides and Venom Protein Classification Improved by an Automated Competition between Exhaustive Profile HMM Classifiers

PMCID: 5577579
PMID: 28786958
DOI: 10.3390/toxins9080245

[…] ct of UniProt [], represent with Arachnoserver [] the main repositories of spider venom-derived sequences. ToxProt contains 1379 manually-reviewed entries (status as of 20 April 2017). In contrast to ArachnoServer, which completely relies on a rational naming system [] and, therefore, sort sequences according to spider taxonomic families, UniProtKB includes a peptide family classification annotati […]


Venom Gland Transcriptomic and Proteomic Analyses of the Enigmatic Scorpion Superstitionia donensis (Scorpiones: Superstitioniidae), with Insights on the Evolution of Its Venom Components

PMCID: 5198561
PMID: 27941686
DOI: 10.3390/toxins8120367

[…] Motif Alignment & Search Tool (MAST) to determine whether the selected motif was a unique signature or not.The prediction of the signal peptide, propeptide and mature peptide was performed using the ArachnoServer (; SignalP 4.1 Server (, and ProP 1.0 Server ( […]


Characterization of Three Venom Peptides from the Spitting Spider Scytodes thoracica

PLoS One
PMCID: 4881942
PMID: 27227898
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0156291

[…] ng mass spectrometry confirmed that U5-Sth1a (as well as a paralog of U3-Sth1a and U3-Sth1h) is present in crude Scytodes thoracica venom.We used BLASTp [] to search for mature toxin sequences in the ArachnoServer database [] that align closely with the mature toxin sequences for U3-Sth1a, U3-Sth1h, and U5-Sth1a. Except for other sequences from Scytodes thoracica, no sequences matched U3-Sth1a or […]


Partial Characterization of Venom from the Colombian Spider Phoneutria Boliviensis (Aranae:Ctenidae)

PMCID: 4549730
PMID: 26264023
DOI: 10.3390/toxins7082872
call_split See protocol

[…] e NCBInr protein databases, with carbamidomethylation as fixed modification. Peptide sequences were searched for similarity using BLAST ( and the Arachnoserver database [,] (, and aligned with related arachnid peptides using ClustalW []. […]


Bioinformatics Aided Venomics

PMCID: 4488696
PMID: 26110505
DOI: 10.3390/toxins7062159

[…] e of furin-like cleavage sites in spider precursors indicates that this tool will be less efficient at analyzing transcriptomes in animals other than spiders. The algorithm can be used on-line on the ArachnoServer website.Cone snail toxins are classified (i) in terms of gene superfamilies; (ii) according to the pattern of their cysteine residues in the primary sequence, which partly reflects the 3 […]


Transcriptome Analysis of Scorpion Species Belonging to the Vaejovis Genus

PLoS One
PMCID: 4319844
PMID: 25659089
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0117188

[…] program ( The possible propetide regions were predicted by using the Prop 1.0 server ( and the SpiderP server ( Multiple sequence alignments were performed with ClustalW2 (, ClustalX 2.0 and T-Coffee ( […]
