Profiling the venom gland transcriptomes of Costa Rican snakes by 454 pyrosequencing
(BMC Genomics, 12:259, 2011, 2011)
Background: A long term research goal of venomics, of applied importance for improving current antivenom therapy, but also for drug discovery, is to understand the pharmacological potential of venoms. Individually ...
Venoms of Micrurus coral snakes: evolutionary trends in compositional patterns emerging from proteomic analyses
The application of proteomic tools to the study of snake venoms has led to an impressive growth in the knowledge about their composition (venomics), immunogenicity (antivenomics), and toxicity (toxicovenomics). About ...
