Rapid purification of serine proteinases from Bothrops alternatus and Bothrops moojeni venoms
(Elsevier B.V., 2013-12-15)
Envenomation by Bothrops species results, among other symptoms, in hemostatic disturbances. These changes can be ascribed to the presence of enzymes, primarily serine proteinases some of which are structurally similar to ...
Relationship of venom ontogeny and diet in Bothrops
We studied ontogenetic changes in venom toxicity of the pitvipers Bothrops jararaca and B. alternatus in order to evaluate the relationship between venom action and diet. Toxicity tests (LD50) were performed for the venoms ...
Toxicity of Bothrops sp snake venoms from Ecuador and preclinical assessment of the neutralizing efficacy of a polyspecific antivenom from Costa Rica
The toxicological profile of the venoms of the snakes Bothrops asper and Bothrops atrox from Ecuador was investigated, together with the venom of a population of B. asper formerly classified as ‘Bothrops xanthogrammus’. ...
Estudos comparativos da atividade cinética e trombina-símile de serinoproteases isoladas a partir dos venenos de Bothrops brazili e Bothrops roedingeriComparative studies of the kinetics and thrombin-like activity of serine proteases isolated from the venom of Bothrops brazili and Bothrops roedingeri
Biochemical and hematological study of goats envenomed with natural and 60Co-irradiated bothropic venom
Venoms from snakes of the Bothrops genus are proteolytic, coagulant, hemorrhagic and nephrotoxic, causing edema, necrosis, hemorrhage and intense pain at the bite site, besides systemic alterations. Many adjuvants have ...
Comparative biochemical studies of myotoxic phospholipase A(2) from Bothrops venom
(Bentham Science Publ Ltd, 2001-06-01)
Venoms from Bothrops jararacussu, Bothrops asper, Bothrops atrox, Bothrops pirajai, Bothrops moojeni, Bothrops alternatus and Bothrops (Bothriopsis) bilineata were fractionated using a simplified procedure based on ...
Evaluation of antivenoms in the neutralization of hyperalgesia and edema induced by Bothrops jararaca and Bothrops asper snake venoms
Neutralization of hyperalgesia induced by Bothrops jararaca and B. asper venoms was studied in rats using bothropic antivenom produced at Instituto Butantan (AVIB, 1 ml neutralizes 5 mg B. jararaca venom) and polyvalent ...
