Comparative study of the edema-forming activity of Costa Rican snake venoms and its neutralization by a polyvalent antivenom
The edema-forming activity of eight Costa Rican crotaline snake venoms and its neutralization by a polyvalent antivenom were studied using the mouse footpad test. All of the venoms induced edema, the highest activity being ...
Skeletal muscle necrosis induced by a phospholipase A2 isolated from the venom of the coral snake Micrurus nigrocinctus nigrocinctus.
1. The venom of the coral snake Micrurus nigrocinctus nigrocinctus was fractionated by reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography and an acidic myotoxic phospholipase A2 was purified to homogeneity. 2. After ...
Intravascular hemolysis induced by phospholipases A2 from the venom of the Eastern coral snake, Micrurus fulvius: functional profile of hemolytic and non-hemolytic isoforms
A unique feature of the venom of Micrurus fulvius (Eastern coral snake) is its ability to induce severe intravascular hemolysis in particular species, such as dogs or mice. This effect was previously shown to be induced ...
Development of immunoassays for determination of circulating venom antigens during envenomations by coral snakes (Micrurus species)
A reverse agglutination assay and two capture enzyme-linked immunoassays (ELISAs) for the quantitative determination of Micrurus nigrocinctus nigrocinctus venom antigens in fluids were developed using affinity-purified ...
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)
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 ...
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 ...
