Intravascular hemolysis induced by the venom of the Eastern coral snake, Micrurus fulvius, in a mouse model: Identification of directly hemolytic phospholipases A2
(Toxicon 90, 2014)
Intravascular hemolysis has been described in envenomings by the Eastern coral snake, Micrurus fulvius, in dogs. An experimental model of intravascular hemolysis was developed in mice after intravenous (i.v.) injection ...
Local effects induced by coral snake venoms: Evidence of myonecrosis after experimental inoculations of venoms from five species
The local effects induced by intramuscular inoculations of venons from six species of coral snakes were studied in mice. Venoms of Micrurus nlgrocinctus nigrocinctus, M. n . moquitensis, M. alleni, M. frontalis, M. aarinkauda ...
Exploration of immunoglobulin transcriptomes from mice immunized with three-finger toxins and phospholipases A2 from the Central American coral snake, Micrurus nigrocinctus
Snakebite envenomings represent a neglected public health issue in many parts of the rural tropical world. Animal-derived antivenoms have existed for more than a hundred years and are effective in neutralizing snake venom ...
MipLAAO, a new L-amino acid oxidase from the redtail coral snake, Micrurus mipartitus
L-amino acid oxidases (LAAOs) are ubiquitous enzymes in nature. Bioactivities described for these enzymes include apoptosis induction, edema formation, induction or inhibition of platelet aggregation, as well as antiviral, ...
Biological and enzymatic activities of Micrurus sp (Coral) snake venoms
(Elsevier Science IncNew YorkEUA, 2005)
MmTX1 and MmTX2 from coral snake venom potently modulate GABAA receptor activity
GABAA receptors shape synaptic transmission by modulating Cl− conductance across the cell membrane. Remarkably, animal toxins that specifically target GABAA receptors have not been identified. Here, we report the discovery ...
Mipartoxin-I, a novel three-finger toxin, is the major neurotoxic component in the venom of the redtail coral snake Micrurus mipartitus (Elapidae)
