Hyperalgesia induced by Asp49 and Lys49 phospholipases A2 from Bothrops asper snake venom: pharmacological mediation and molecular determinants
The ability of Lys49 and Asp49 phospholipases A2 (PLA2), from Bothrops asper snake venom, to cause hyperalgesia was investigated in rats, using the paw pressure test. Intraplantar injection of both toxins (5–20 μg/paw) ...

La paracoccidioidomicosis es una enfermedad que puede afectar varios órganos, en el 75% de los casos al pulmón, y tiene como agente etiológico al Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, un hongo dimórfico cuya forma parasitaria es ...
Thirst sensitivity to post-exercise fluid replacement needs and controlled drinking
Purpose: Thirst was evaluated as a dependent variable, to see if perceived thirst (TP) can clearly distinguish among several levels of acute dehydration, and if so, how it responds over time to the ingestion of a predetermined ...
Autocatalytic acylation of phospholipase-like myotoxins
Several snake venoms contain a phospholipase A2 in which position 49 in the active site is occupied by a lysine or a serine instead of the aspartate residue normally found. Although these proteins do not bind Ca2+ and are ...
Environmental determinants and origins of malnutrition
The characterization of protein-calorie malnutrition (PCM) more than 30 years ago led to its recognition as a scourge of underdeveloped societies (1). For more than two decades, however, PCM was considered a medical ...
Incomplete warm-climate post-exercise rehydration with water, coconut water, or a sports drink
(Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, 32(5s), 238., 2011-10-01)
It is common to find mild to serious dehydration during exercise in hot, humid conditions. To restore euhydration, the literature shows that a fluid volume larger than sweat loss should be ingested post-exercise; ingestion ...
