Immunochemical properties of the N-terminal helix of myotoxin II, a lysine-49 phospholipase A2 from Bothrops asper snake venom
Myotoxic class II phospholipases A2 from snake venoms can be divided into Asp49 and Lys49 types. The latter, including Bothrops asper myotoxin II, exert membrane damage despite lacking catalytic activity. A heparin-binding, ...
Identification of the myotoxic site of the Lys49 phospholipase A2 from Agkistrodon piscivorus piscivorus snake venom: synthetic C-terminal peptides from Lys49, but not from Asp49 myotoxins, exert membrane-damaging activities
Group II phospholipase A2 (PLA2) myotoxins found in the venoms of Crotalidae snakes can be divided into `Asp49' and `Lys49' isoforms, the latter being considered catalytically-inactive variants. Previous studies on one ...
