Snake venomics and antivenomics: Proteomic tools in the design and control of antivenoms for the treatment of snakebite envenoming
Snakebite envenoming represents a neglected tropical disease that has a heavy public health impact, particularly in Asia, Africa and Latin America. A global initiative, aimed at increasing antivenom production and ...
A new method for the detection of phospholipase A2 variants: identification of isozymes in the venoms of newborn and adult Bothrops asper (terciopelo) snakes
A new method for the identification of phospholipase A2 isozymes in snake venoms is described. The technique is based on the separation of the venom components by isoelectric focusing in agarose gels, transfer of the protein ...
DNase activity in Costa Rican crotaline snake venoms: quantification of activity and identification of electrophoretic variants.
DNase activity of Costa Rican crotaline snake venoms from the genera Bothrops, Crotalus and Lachesis was quantified by an enzymodiffusion method on agarose/DNA gels containing ethidium bromide. The reaction is detected as ...
An electrophoretic study on phospholipase A2 isoenzymes in the venoms of Central American crotaline snakes
The number and isoelectric points of phospholipase A2 isoenzymes were studied in the venoms of 12 Central American crotaline snakes of the genera Bothrops, Crotalus, Lachesis and Agkistrodon. The study was carried out by ...
Pathological changes induced by BaH1, a hemorrhagic proteinase isolated from Bothrops asper (Terciopelo) snake venom, on mouse capillary blood vessels
The pathological changes induced in capillaries by BaH1, a hemorrhagic metalloproteinase isolated from the venom of Bothrops asper, were studied after i.m. injection in mouse gastrocnemius. Hemorrhage was observed ...
Degenerative and regenerative changes in murine skeletal muscle after injection of venom from the snake Bothrops asper: a histochemical and immunocytochemical study.
The degenerative and regenerative changes in murine skeletal muscle after injection of Bothrops asper venom were studied by histological, lectin histochemical and immunocytochemical techniques. According to our observations, ...
