Amino acid sequence and biological characterization of BlatPLA2, a non-toxic acidic phospholipase A2 from the venom of the arboreal snake Bothriechis lateralis from Costa Rica
Bothriechis is considered a monophyletic, basal genus of arboreal Neotropical pitvipers distributed across Middle America. The four species found in Costa Rica (B. lateralis, B. schlegeli, B. nigroviridis, B. supraciliaris) ...
A bright future for integrative venomics
Venomous secretions are produced by a myriad of animal species, from invertebrates to vertebrates. As a general rule, peptides and proteins represent the most abundant and functionally relevant components of these dangerous ...
Venomic analysis of the poorly studied desert coral snake, Micrurus tschudii tschudii, supports the 3FTx/PLA2 dichotomy across Micrurus venoms
The venom proteome of the poorly studied desert coral snake Micrurus tschudii tschudii was unveiled using a venomic approach, which identified ¥38 proteins belonging to only four snake venom protein families. The ...
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 ...
