Purification and characterization of BaH4, a hemorrhagic metalloproteinase from the venom of the snake Bothrops asper
A hemorrhagic metalloproteinase, named BaH4, was isolated from the venom of the snake Bothrops asper by a combination of ion-exchange chromatography on DEAE-Sepharose and gel filtration on Sephacryl S-200. BaH4 is a 69 kDa ...
Characterization of the local tissue damage induced by LHF-II, a metalloproteinase with weak hemorrhagic activity isolated from Lachesis muta muta snake venom
Local tissue damage induced by LHF-II, a 22-kDa hemorrhagic metalloproteinase from Lachesis muta venom was studied. Intravital microscopy experiments evidenced hemorrhagic events 2 min after LHF-II application onto cremaster ...
Inhibition of local hemorrhage and dermonecrosis induced by Bothrops asper snake venom: effectiveness of early in situ administration of the peptidomimetic metalloproteinase inhibitor batimastat and the chelating agent CaNa2EDTA
The effectiveness of the chelating agent CaNa2EDTA and the peptidomimetic matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor batimastat (BB-94) to inhibit local tissue damage induced by Bothrops asper snake venom was studied in mice. Both ...
Pathological alterations induced by neuwiedase, a metalloproteinase isolated from Bothrops neuwiedi snake venom
The pathological alterations induced by neuwiedase, a 22 kDa class P-I metalloproteinase from the venom of the South American pit viper Bothrops neuwiedi, were studied in mice. Neuwiedase was devoid of hemorrhagic activity ...
Effectiveness of batimastat, a synthetic inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinases, in neutralizing local tissue damage induced by BaP1, a hemorrhagic metalloproteinase from the venom of the snake Bothrops asper
Batimastat (BB-94), a synthetic hydroxamate peptidomimetic matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor, was tested for its ability to inhibit proteolytic and toxic effects induced by BaP1, a 24-kDa hemorrhagic metalloproteinase ...
