Product ID L8509-500UG 
Name CONOTOXIN GI (alpha-) 
Molecular formula C55H80N20O18S4
A 13 amino-acids peptide with 2 disulfide bridges , synthetic, initially isolated from the venom of the Geographer cone snail Conus geographus.
Biological activity

α-conotoxin GI is a competitive antagonist of the muscle-type nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR). α-conotoxin GI allows to distinguish between the two agonist sites as it binds 10,000-fold more tightly to the α/δ than to the α/γ site excepted in Torpedo which is the reverse.
