As25a (P05524) Protein Card

General Information
Name As25a
Alternative name(s) As25b
Organism Conus austini
Organism region Western Atlantic and Caribbean
Organism diet vermivorous
Protein Type Wild type
Notes In Aguilar 2013, As25b is described as the peptide modified with two 4-hydroxyproline whereas As25a is the same peptide but without modification. Because it is now well established that the differential modifications of conopeptides is a common mechanism to increase diversity and occurs for nearly every peptide, ConoServer now record only the conopeptide sequences with the maximal number of modifications. Therefore, the peptides called As25a and As25b in Aguilar 2013 are considered as only one entry, called As25a in ConoServer.

Intracranial injection in mice of the peptide without the two 4-hydroxyprolines provokes paralysis of the hind limbs and death.
