Latisemin is a cysteine-rich secretory protein that can be isolated from the venom of the Black-banded sea krait, a sea snake indigenous to the warmer waters of the western Pacific Ocean. It is a toxin that inhibits cyclic nucleotide-gated ion channels〔 and blocks L-type calcium channels, thereby reducing smooth muscle contraction.〔
Latisemin is a component of the venom produced by the Erabu sea snake (''Laticauda semifasciata'') of the Elapidae family and the Laticauda genus. These sea snakes inhabit coral reef areas in the seas of Southern Japan, Southeast Asia, and Australia.〔 Though highly venomous, this snake is comparatively unaggressive, and is in fact caught and eaten in Erabu soup in Japan.
