Crystals of stonustoxin have been obtained and diffract to 3.4 Å resolution. Stonustoxin is a protein lethal factor isolated from the venom of the stonefish, Synanceja horrida. The crystals belong to the tetragonal space group P422, with unit cell constants a = b = 109.0 Å c = 245.7 Å. A native stonustoxin molecule has two subunits, designated α and β, respectively, and there is one stonustoxin molecule per asymmetric unit.
