Sea Anemone 8
Data associated with research of the Sea Anemone 8 toxin family.
This project involved the assembly of new sea anemone genomes, from which questions pertaining to the evolutionary history of venom proteins were probed. A novel Sea Anemone 8 protein was found in Telmatactis on the basis of its structural inversions. Furthermore, it was found that the Sea Anemone 8 protein family is unique to sea anemones, and that it performs functions unique to it which diverge from the ShK protein family.
