Objectives: Despite the long history on proteolytic activity studies, no study has been reported about the presence of proteases from the Turkish scorpion A. crassicauda venom which is among the most toxic species in the world. The present work is a preliminary study indicating the presence of gelatinolytic proteases in the A. crassicauda crude venom which almost nothing is known about its components.
