The effect of myotoxins isolated from Bothrops snake venoms on multilamellar liposomes: relationship to phospholipase A2, anticoagulant and myotoxic activities
The effect of four myotoxins isolated from Bothrops snake venoms on the release of peroxidase trapped in large multilamellar liposomes was studied and correlated to their phospholipase A2, myotoxic and anticoagulant ...
Isolation and characterization of basic myotoxic phospholipases A2 from Bothrops godmani (Godman's pit viper) snake venom
Two basic myotoxic phospholipases A2 were purified to homogeneity from the venom of Bothrops godmani from Costa Rica by ion-exchange chromatography on CM-Sephadex. They have molecular weights of 14,300 (myotoxin I) and ...
The Phospholipase A2 Homologues of Snake Venoms: Biological Activities and Their Possible Adaptive Roles
A particular subgroup of toxins with phospholipase A2 (PLA2) structure, but devoid of this enzymatic activity, is commonly found in the venoms of snakes of the family Viperidae, and known as the PLA2 homologues. Among ...
Skeletal muscle degeneration and regeneration after injection of bothropstoxin-II, a phospholipase A2 isolated from the venom of the snake Bothrops jararacussu
A myotoxic phospholipase A2, named bothropstoxin II (BthTX-II), was isolated from the venom of the South American snake Bothrops jararacussu and the pathogenesis of myonecrosis induced by this toxin was studied in mice. ...
Turbidity of hyperimmune equine antivenom: the role of phenol and serum lipoproteins
Twenty batches of polyvalent antivenom produced at the Instituto Clodomiro Picado were analyzed for turbidity, both before and after freezing-thawing and lyophilization. Eight batches became turbid upon freezing-thawing, ...
