Naja Naja is one of the poisonous snakes in the genus Naja of Elapids family; commonly called Indian cobras and are mostly found in Asia and Africa. They are highly venomous species having a cocktail of chemicals that have different effects may be speed the heart rate, blood pressure and interfere with the normal function of the nervous system and potently block α7 homo-oligomeric neuronal AChRs causing paralysis. The aim of the present study is to identify the origin of neurotoxin, prediction of structure and function of neurotoxin by multiple sequences analysis and observing the conserved pattern of amino acid residues and to construct the phylogenetic tree for organizing evolutionary history of N. Naja of genus Naja from Elapidae family.
