No
Aggregate Grant Award:
No

PBS Program Name:
ARC 18/19 Discovery
Grant Program:
Discovery Projects
Grant Activity:
Functional evolution and therapeutic potential of snake venom coagulotoxins
Purpose:
This project aims to identify and understand the factors that influence the useful function of key residues (parts of larger compounds) in Australian snake venom coagulotoxins, which alter blood-clotting ability. In recent years, snake venom compounds have been demonstrated as useful models from which to synthesise therapeutic drugs to improve health and well-being. This project will test these important toxins on model systems that represent natural prey items in order to determine the molecular and functional evolution of blood-clot forming enzymes. Expected outcomes include substantial contributions to the body of evolutionary biology knowledge, as well as narrowing the search for the ultimate drug candidates.
