More About Venom
This game explores how ion channels inside the cells allow muscles to function, and how toxins such as scorpion venom are able to block those channels causing paralysis. In this game, the player must "shoot" antivenom molecules at toxin molecules to keep them from binding to and blocking ion channels, thus protecting the muscle cells in the human body.
Venom is part of a larger online lesson about proteins inside cells created for Arizona State University's Ask A Biologist. This activity is fully functional on mobile and tablet devices, and compliant with all modern W3 standards of web development.
