Proteomic analysis of venom variability and ontogeny across the arboreal palm-pitvipers (genus Bothriechis)
Bothriechis is a genus of eleven currently recognized slender and arboreal venomous snakes, commonly called palm-pitvipers that range from southern Mexico to northern South America. Despite dietary studies suggesting that ...
New insights into the phylogeographic distribution of the 3FTx/PLA2 venom dichotomy across genus Micrurus in South America
Micrurus is a monophyletic genus of venomous coral snakes of the family Elapidae. The ~80 recognized species within this genus are endemic to the Americas, and are distributed from southeastern United States to ...
A novel pentameric phospholipase A2 myotoxin (PophPLA2) from the venom of the pit viper Porthidium ophryomegas
The first toxin isolated from the venomous pit viper Porthidiumophryomegas is a basic pentameric phospholipase A2 (PophPLA2). Elucidation of its amino acid sequence showed that it belongs to the group IIA of secreted ...
Proteoform-resolved quantitative venomics: looking through a crystal ball
In this paper we discuss recent significant developments in the field of venom research, specifically the emergence of top-down proteomic applications that allow achieving compositional resolution at the level of the ...
