Abstract

Although fish venoms exert a cardiovascular effect, the presence of adrenergic substances was not previously demonstrated. Chromatographic analysis with electrochemical detection showed the presence of substances co-migrating with norepinephrine, dopamine and tryptophan. Serotonin, which was thought to be implicated in the intense pain following fish envenomation, was not detected. Norepinephrine was identified as a component of the stonefish Synanceia verrucosa venom by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
