Abstract

Spiders are one of the evolutionary most successful groups of animals. The most important adaptations which enabled their great diversity and variability are web-spinning and the use of venom for prey subduction and self-defence. In this paper, main components of the spider venom, their mechanisms of action and the threat they pose for humans are discussed. Possibilites for further studies in the aim of extending our knowledge of spider toxins, as well as their commercial use, are presented.
