Isolation and characterization of a serine proteinase with thrombin-like activity from the venom of the snake Bothrops asper
A serine proteinase with thrombin-like activity was isolated from the venom of the Central American pit viper Bothrops asper. Isolation was performed by a combination of affinity chromatography on aminobenzamidine-Sepharose ...
Comparison of venom composition and biological activities of the subspecies Crotalus lepidus lepidus, Crotalus lepidus klauberi and Crotalus lepidus morulus from Mexico
The rock rattlesnakes Crotalus lepidus comprise a group (lepidus, klauberi, morulus and maculosus) of poorly known mountain cold-tolerant snakes in Mexico. In particular, Crotalus lepidus morulus is a snake endemic of ...
Blood flow is required for rapid endothelial cell damage induced by a snake venom hemorrhagic metalloproteinase
The effects of blood flow interruption on the ultrastructural alterations induced by a snake venom hemorrhagic metalloproteinase on skeletal muscle capillary endothelial cells were studied. Saline solution or the ...
Effect of adjuvants on the antibody response of mice to Bothrops asper (Terciopelo) snake venom
The adjuvant properties of several immunostimulant molecules on the murine antibody response to Bothrops asper snake venom were evaluated. Mice receiving venom together with either sodium alginate, calcium alginate, aluminum ...
