Antivenomics: a proteomics tool for studying the immunoreactivity of antivenoms
Envenoming following snakebite is largely a neglected threat to public health in tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, Asia, Latin America and Oceania addicting some of the world’s poorest rural communities. An ...
Novel catalytically-inactive PII metalloproteinases from a viperid snake venom with substitutions in the canonical zinc-binding motif
Snake venom metalloproteinases (SVMPs) play key biological roles in prey immobilization and digestion. The majority of these activities depend on the hydrolysis of relevant protein substrates in the tissues. Hereby, we ...
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 ...
