Venom gland transcriptome analyses of two freshwater stingrays (Myliobatiformes: Potamotrygonidae) from Brazil

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4768133
PMID: 26916342
DOI: 10.1038/srep21935

[…] jected to a BLASTx analysis (with e-value threshold of 10−5 and matching to the top hits) against the following databases: NCBI nonredundant (nr) protein sequences, UniProtKB and UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Tox-Prot. The Trinotate software, contained within the Trinity package, was used for functional annotation, including Gene Ontology (GO) terms and presence and location of signal peptide cleavage site […]


Gene duplications are extensive and contribute significantly to the toxic proteome of nematocysts isolated from Acropora digitifera (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Scleractinia)

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4604070
PMID: 26464356
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-015-1976-4

[…] toxin identification [, ]. Firstly, only sequences with Reciprocal Blast Best Hit (RBBH) or relaxed RBBH (using the top five BLAST hits for reciprocal BLAST) to sequences in the UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Tox-Prot dataset with query coverage above 70 % were retained. Secondly, BLASTp comparisons were performed against the entire UniProt database supplemented with additional cnidarian protein sequences […]


Bioinformatics Aided Venomics

PMCID: 4488696
PMID: 26110505
DOI: 10.3390/toxins7062159

[…] structural information. When no experimental structure is available, a homology model is generated for each toxin. As of June 2015, 76 species of snakes and 419 proteins and toxins are listed in ISOB.Tox-Prot ( [] is the animal toxin annotation program of UniProtKB and aims to systematically annotate animal venom peptides []. Some of the annotations found in C […]


Novel venom gene discovery in the platypus
