Proteomic analysis of the rare Uracoan rattlesnake Crotalus vegrandis venom: evidence of a broad arsenal of toxins
(Elsevier B. V., 2015-09-25)
The investigation of venoms has many clinical, pharmacological, ecological and evolutionary outcomes. The Crotalus spp. venom can cause hemorrhage, neurotoxicity, myotoxicity, coagulopathy and hypotension. Although ...
ACUTE HEPATOTOXICITY OF Crotalus durissus terrificus (SOUTH AMERICAN RATTLESNAKE) VENOM IN RATS
Snake venomics of crotalus tigris: the minimalist toxin arsenal of the deadliest neartic rattlesnake venom: evolutionary clues for generating a pan-specific antivenom against crotalid type II venoms
(Journal of Proteome Research 11(2): 1382–1390, 2012-02-03)
We report the proteomic and antivenomic characterization of Crotalus tigris venom. This venom exhibits the highest lethality for mice among rattlesnakes and the simplest toxin proteome reported to date. The venom proteome ...
Isolation and characterization of novel neurotoxins from south American rattlesnake Crotalus durissus terrificus: Optimization of chromatographic procedure
(Bentham Science Publ LtdHilversumHolanda, 2000)
Edema-forming activity of bushmaster (Lachesis muta stenophrys) and Central American rattlesnake (Crotalus durissus durissus) venoms and neutralization by a polyvalent antivenom
The edema effect induced in mice by venoms of Crotalus durissus durissus and Lachesis muta stenophrys was studied . Minimum edema-forming doses were 11 and 5 ug, respectively . Edema developed very rapidly after injections ...
Intraspecies variation in the venom of the rattlesnake Crotalus simus from Mexico: Different expression of crotoxin results in highly variable toxicity in the venoms of three subspecies
The composition and toxicological profile of the venom of the rattlesnake Crotalus simus in Mexico was analyzed at the subspecies and individual levels. Venoms of the subspecies C. s. simus, C. s. culminatus and C. s. ...
