Toxin from the scorpion, Androctonus mauretanicus m ., (peptide, 4 kD) that blocks some potassium channels. Closely related to charybdotoxin and agitoxins.
Kaliotoxin (KTX) inhibits potassium flux through the Kv1.3 voltage-gated potassium channel and calcium-activated potassium channels by physically blocking the channel-entrance and inducing a conformational change in the K+-selectivity filter of the channel. ==Sources== KTX is a neurotoxin derived from the scorpion Androctonus mauretanicus mauretan...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaliotoxin
