Polimorfismo cromosómico intraespecífico en la serpiente de coral Micrurus nigrocinctus (Ophidia: Elapidae)
En un estudio cito genético de 59 ejemplares de la serpiente de coral Micrurus nigrocinctus procedentes de todas las áreas de distribución de Costa Rica, se observó dos patrones cariológicos principales: I o "nigrocinctus" ...
Feeding behavior and venom toxicity of coral snake Micrurus nigrocinctus (Serpentes: Elapidae) on its natural prey in captivity
The feeding behavior and venom toxicity of the coral snake Micrurus nigrocinctus (Serpentes: Elapidae) on its natural prey in captivity were investigated. Coral snakes searched for their prey (the colubrid snake Geophis ...
Immunochemical characterization of Micrurus nigrocinctus nigrocinctus venom with monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies
Eleven murine monocloncal antibodies (MAbs) against Micrurus nigrocinctus nigrocinctus venom were produced and partially characterized. When M. n. nigrocinctus venom proteins were separated by SDS-PAGE under non-reducing ...
Electrophoretic and immunochemical studies of Micrurus venoms
The electrophoretic mobilities of venom components from 15 Micrurus species were studied by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The venoms showed species-specific protein patterns under native (PAGE) or denaturing (urea-PAGE) ...
Pathogenesis of myonecrosis induced by coral snake (Micrurus nigrocinctus) venom in mice
The mode by which coral snake (Micrurus nigrocinctus) venom affects skeletal muscle was studied using a combined approach. The venom induced early functional and structural alterations in the plasma membrane of muscle ...
Venomic and antivenomic analyses of the Central American coral snake, Micrurus nigrocinctus (Elapidae)
The proteome of the venom of Micrurus nigrocinctus (Central American coral snake) was analyzed by a “venomics” approach. Nearly 50 venom peaks were resolved by RP-HPLC, revealing a complex protein composition. Comparative ...
THE ABILITY OF SPECIFIC ANTIVENOM AND LOW-TEMPERATURE TO INHIBIT THE MYOTOXICITY AND NEUROMUSCULAR BLOCK INDUCED BY MICRURUS-NIGROCINCTUS VENOM
(Pergamon-elsevier Science LtdOxfordInglaterra, 1995)
Neuromuscular Activity of Micrurus laticollaris (Squamata: Elapidae) Venom in Vitro
(Mdpi AgBaselSuíça, 2014)
Antibody-mediated neutralization and binding-reversal studies on α-neurotoxins from micrurus nigrocinctus nigrocinctus (coral snake) venom
An ELISA based, non-radioactive acetylcholine receptor (AchR) binding assay was used to detect the alpha-neurotoxins present in Micrurus nigrocinctus nigrocinctus venom. Sera from horses hyperimmunized against M. nigrocinctus ...
