Venomics of the poorly studied hognosed pitvipers Porthidium arcosae and Porthidium volcanicum
We report the first proteomics analyses of the venoms of two poorly studied snakes, the Manabi hognosed pitviper Porthidium arcosae endemic to the western coastal province of Manabí (Ecuador), and the Costa Rican hognosed ...
Antivenomics and in vivo preclinical efficacy of six Latin American antivenoms towards south-western Colombian Bothrops asper lineage venoms
Snakebite envenoming is an important occupational health problem, particularly in rural areas of developing countries. The timely administration of an effective antivenom remains the mainstay of snakebite management. ...
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 ...
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 ...
Venom variation in Bothrops asper lineages from north-western South America.
Bothrops asper is a venomous pitviper that is widely distributed and of clinical importance in Mesoamerica and northern South America, where it is responsible for 50–80% of all envenomations by Viperidae species. Previous ...
The earless monitor lizard Lanthanotus borneensis – a venomous animal?
Based on its mandibular gland secretion, the earless monitor lizard, Lanthanotus borneensis, has been considered a venomous animal like other members of the Toxicofera group, including Heloderma. In the present study, the ...
