Abstract:This study investigated the diversity of peptides and proteins in the venom of Macrothele yani. In this experiment, sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and ultra-performance liquid chromatography-electrospray-quadrupole-time of flight mass spectrometry (UPLC-ESI-Q-TOF-MS) were used to separate and identify proteins and peptides in the venom, and the distribution of molecular mass was also analyzed. The results showed that the relative molecular mass of the proteins contained in the crude venom was mainly distributed between 17 kDa and 135 kDa, and there were 11 clearly separated electrophoretic bands with molecular mass ranged from 40 kDa to 120 kDa. Additionally, high-abundance protein bands were dispersed around 75 kDa, and the most abundant bands were found over 75 kDa. Furthermore, more than 50 chromatographic peaks were separated by UPLC and 121 constituents were identified by MS analysis. 21% peptides distributed in the range of 500 Da to 2 000 Da while 76% were distributed in the range of 3 000 Da to 5 000 Da showing a bimodal distribution. As the most abundant peptides content in the crude venom of M. yani, the 76% peptides were eluted during the retention time of 35 min to 60 min. The results show that the venom of M. yani contains abundant peptides and proteins. However, this study lays a foundation for the material basic research and drug development of the toxin in the future.
