Cardiotoxin III

Cardiotoxin III (CTX III, also known as cytotoxin 3) is a sixty amino-acid polypeptide toxin from the Taiwan Cobra Naja naja atra.

Recent evidence has shown that CTX III may induce apoptosis in K562 cells via the release of cytochrome c.[1]

This protein belongs to large family of snake venom toxins.[2]
