1. "When cobra venom is introduced into the body it moves along the bloodstream to the
diaphragm muscle. It works as a postsynaptic neurotoxin binding to the receptor as an
extracellular ligand by interacting with an OH group leaving the acetyl choline channel
open which releases ions used in creating an action potential."

=When%20cobra%20venom%20is%20introduced.in%20creating%20an%20action%20potential.
Just based on the description above, diagram an experiment that would show how the cobra
venom / receptor interaction is happening. You need to use a specific patch clamp
technique. Along with your drawing, explain which technique you chose and why. Explain
how the experiment would work - for example where would you put the cobra venom.
Explain, what the result, at the cellular level, would be if the muscle cells in the diaphragm
were exposed to this venom. Finally explain why cobra venom leads to trouble breathing
and eventually death? (Look this up).
