latrodectism - the effects of bite of black widow spider

About 40,000 species of spiders have been described throughout the world (1), most of which are
harmless to humans. Of those, only 180 species bite man, and only a few are truly venomous.
However, some spiders are truly venomous, examples of which are the widow spider, Sydney
funnel-web spider, banana spider and recluse spider(2). 1,200 species of spiders have been reported
in Japan, none of which are venomous. However, in the autumn and winter of 1995, some widow
spiders, the red back spider, Latrodectus hasseltii, and the brown widow spider, Latrodectus geometricus, were found in Japan (3,4).
There have been many reviews on venomous spiders and/or their toxins (5-15), especially on the
neurotoxin of black widow spiders, which is a high molecular weight protein named alpha-latroroxin
(16,17). The chemical properties of the toxin of the red back spider which was introduced in Japan
were studied and found to be almost the same as those of the Australian red back spider toxin,
which was alpha-latrotoxin (18). Recently, however, the study of harmless spider toxin has become
active from a neurobiological viewpoint. Spider venoms are a rich source of potential probes for ion
channel and receptor in neurones (11-14,19).
