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 ...
Structural and functional properties of BaTX, a new Lys49 phospholipase A2 homologue isolated from the venom of the snake Bothrops alternatus
BaTX PLA2, a K49 phospholipase A2 homologue was purified from Bothrops alternatus venom after two chromatographic steps, molecular exclusion on Superdex 75 and reverse phase HPLC on μ-Bondapack C-18. A molecular mass of ...
Combined venom gland cDNA sequencing and venomics of the New Guinea small-eyed snake, Micropechis ikaheka
The venom arsenal of the New Guinea small-eyed snake, Micropechis ikaheka, was investigated by a joint cDNA sequencing and venomics approach. Twenty-seven full-length DNA sequences encoding novel venom proteins were recovered ...
