Venom, from John Kuhn

March 2, 2007 |

This paragraph, from a New Yorker magazine article titled "Spider Woman" (March 5 issue, "A Reporter at Large" segment) resonates with a few favorite market themes:

"A single spider can inject its victims with as many as two hundred compounds: proteases that dissolve flesh, gelatinases that dissolve connective tissues, neurotoxins that short-circuit nerves, slow the heart, and freeze the limbs. A spider's venom offers a window onto its evolution, Bindford says — a chemical record of its most successful experiments at killing prey."
