Qualifier Spanish: Amanitinas
Descriptor amanitinas
Entry term(s) amanitina
Scope note: Péptidos cíclicos extraídos de los carpóforos de varias especies de hongos. Son potentes inhibidores de las ARN polimerasas en la mayoría de las especies eucariotas, y bloquean la producción de ARNm y la síntesis proteica. Estos péptidos son importantes en el estudio de la transcripción. La alfa-amanitina es la principal toxina de la especie Amanita phalloides, que es venenosa si la ingieren los humanos o animales.

Scope note: Cyclic peptides extracted from carpophores of various mushroom species. They are potent inhibitors of RNA polymerases in most eukaryotic species, blocking the production of mRNA and protein synthesis. These peptides are important in the study of transcription. Alpha-amanitin is the main toxin from the species Amanitia phalloides, poisonous if ingested by humans or animals.
