Multiple alignment of the N-terminal sequence of PocTX. After sequencing by Edman degradation (10 μg), the sequence was compared to other snake venom PLA2 homologues, including Bothrops moojeni (PA2H2_BOTMO, ID: Q91834), Bothrops leucurus (PA2HB_BOTLC, ID: P86975), Bothrops pirajai (P2H2_BOTPI, ID: P82287), Bothrops asper (PA2H2_BOTAS, ID: P24605) and Bothrops jararacussu (PA2B1_BOTJR, ID: Q90249), and to an uncharacterized protein from the parasitoid wasp Nasonia vitripennis (NASVI_NASVI, ID: K7JAT1). In green, the insertion of a glutamic acid residue in PocTX’s sequence; in blue, a histine residue at position 48; in yellow, a lysine residue at position 49; and in gray, conserved cysteine residues
