dc.description.abstractVenoms from stonefish (genus Synanceja) have marked effects on the cardiovascular and neuromuscular systems and on vascular permeability; the venoms also exhibit haemolytic and hyaluronidase activity. Recently, a toxic protein, stonustoxin (SNTX), was purified from the venom of S. horrida: the primary lethal action of SNTX has been attributed to its potent endothelium-dependent vasorelaxant activity causing a rapid, marked and irreversible hypotension; the other actions of SNTX resemble those of the stonefish crude venoms.
