The Asian scorpion Buthus martensii Karsch has been used in Chinese Traditional Medicine for thousands of years. The scorpion, venom of scorpion and their extracts are effective in treating a variety of nervous system diseases such as epilepsy, apoplexy pains and facial paralysis. Apart from these therapeutic effects, the peptides purified from scorpion also showed antitumor activities, antimicrobial effects and protective effects on vascular. In this review, we reported various pharmacological effects of bioactive peptides purified from scorpion Buthus martensii Karsch so that we can use different effects of these bioactive peptides to treat different diseases and provide reference for the study of scorpion Buthus martensii Karsch in future.
