Spidery toxin can save from the whole set of neurodegenerate diseases


Poison of a spider-krugopryada of Argiope lobata has surprising properties. As transfers "MIR24", poison slows down process of death of neurons due to blocking of activity of neuroreceptors and without allowing them to get oversaturated calcium.

Is known: cages in a brain constantly "exchange words". The cage transmitting a signal develops the neurotransmitter influencing the accepting neuron. So, the neurotransmitter a glutamate makes active neurons, influencing the special proteins which are built in a cell membrane (on glutamate receptors). He opens in them the channels which are passing inside positively charged ions.

However, against the background of a neurologic illness glutamate receptors become too active. In particular it concerns the neurons which are well carrying out calcium. If too much calcium gets to the accepting neurons, then there is apoptosis (death of cages).

Spidery toxin аргиопин from Argiope lobata poison stops this process, getting into receptors and blocking calcic channels. According to scientists, on the basis of poison of a spider it is possible to develop means against the whole set of illnesses - a side amyotrophic sclerosis, Alzheimer's diseases, Parkinson, epilepsy.
