Venomics of the Duvernoy's gland secretion of the false coral snake Rhinobothryum bovallii (Andersson, 1916) and assessment of venom lethality towards synapsid and diapsid animal models
The Duvernoy's gland secretory proteome of the false coral snake Rhinobothryum bovallii (Costa Rica), unveiled applying bottom-up venomics, comprises a handful of toxins belonging to only three protein families, three-finger ...
Danger in the canopy: comparative proteomics and bioactivities of the venoms of the South American palm viper Bothrops bilineatus subspecies bilineatus and smaragdinus, and antivenomics of B. b. bilineatus (Rondônia) venom against the Brazilian pentabothropic antivenom
We report a structural and functional proteomics characterization of venoms of the two subspecies (Bothrops bilineatusbilineatus and B. b. smaragdinus) of the South American palm pit viper from the Brazilian state of ...

Wereport a genus-wide comparison of venomproteomevariation acrossNewWorld pit vipers in the genus Agkistrodon. Despite the wide variety of habitats occupied by this genus and that all its taxa feed on diverse species of ...
Venomous snakes of Costa Rica: biological and medical implications of their venom proteomic profiles analyzed through the strategy of snake venomics
(Journal of Proteomics XX (2014) XXX – XXX, Available online 24 February 2014, 2014-02-24)
In spite of its small territory of ~50,000 km2, Costa Rica harbors a remarkably rich biodiversity. Its herpetofauna includes 138 species of snakes, of which sixteen pit vipers (family Viperidae, subfamily Crotalinae), five ...
Immunological profile of antivenoms: preclinical analysis of the efficacy of a polyspecific antivenom through antivenomics and neutralization assays
(En prensa, 2014-02-28)
Parenteral administration of animal-derived antivenoms constitutes the mainstay in the treatment of snakebite envenomings. Despite the fact that this therapy has been available for over a century, the detailed understanding ...
