the Venom of the Nomura is so complex that still puts scientists in a deadlock.
the Scientists analyzed the genome of one of the world’s largest jellyfish, and found that its venom contains over 200 toxins, according to a study published in the Journal of Proteome Research.
jellyfish Nomura (Nemopilema nomurai) inhabits predominantly Yellow and East China sea. It grows to 2 metres in diameter and weigh 200 kg.
Every year from the poison of a giant creature hundreds of unsuspecting swimmers. It causes severe pain, followed by redness and swelling. In rare cases, bites can lead to shock or even death.
Complex analysis of biopolymers jellyfish in the laboratory showed that the animal produces more than two hundred toxins, combining them into a complex “cocktail”. Thus, each of the toxins affects the body of the victim differently.
the Chemistry of poison so mysterious that scientists have not been able to identify this large set of those toxins that can lead to death.
