Biological characterization of the Amazon coral Micrurus spixii snake venom: isolation of a new neurotoxic phospholipase A2
(Elsevier B. V., 2015)
The Micrurus genus is the American representative of Elapidae family. Micrurus spixii is endemic of South America and northern states of Brazil. Elapidic venoms contain neurotoxins that promote curare-mimetic neuromuscular ...
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) ...
MODE OF ACTION OF THE CORAL SNAKE MICRURUS-SPIXII VENOM AT THE NEUROMUSCULAR-JUNCTION
(Alaken, IncFt Collins, 1995)
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)
Aquatic adaptations in a Neotropical coral snake: A study of morphological convergence
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2017-12)
Micrurus surinamensis is an aquatic member of the genus Micrurus. This species is known for its highly specialized venom and distinctive diet, mostly made of aquatic vertebrates. Here, we explore both external (head and ...
The ability of specific antivenom and low temperature to inhibit the myotoxicity and neuromuscular block induced by Micrurus nigrocinctus venom
In the isolated mouse diaphragm preparation, Micrurus nigrocinctus venom produced a dose-dependent contracture and blockade of the contractile response to direct and indirect electrical stimulation of the muscle. This ...
