Snake venomics of the South and Central American Bushmasters. Comparison of the toxin composition of Lachesis muta gathered from proteomic versus transcriptomic analysis
We report the proteomic characterization of the venoms of two closely related pit vipers of the genus Lachesis, L. muta (South American Bushmaster) and L. stenophrys (Central American Bushmaster), and compare the toxin ...
Hemostatic effects induced by Thalassophryne nattereri fish venom: a model of endothelium-mediated blood flow impairment.
Accidents by Thalassophryne nattereri fish venom are characterised by severe local symptoms and signs including pain of fast onset, oedema and necrosis with impaired muscle regeneration. These effects have been related to ...
Skeletal muscle necrosis and regeneration after injection of Thalassophryne nattereri (niquim) fish venom in mice
Stings by Thalassophryne nattereri are responsible for envenomation of fishermen in north-eastern Brazil. Its venom induces prominent local tissue damage, characterized by pain, oedema and necrosis. The pathogenesis of ...
Snake Venomics of Central American Pitvipers: Clues for Rationalizing the Distinct Envenomation Profiles of Atropoides nummifer and Atropoides picadoi
We report the proteomic characterization of the Central American pitvipers Atropoides nummifer and Atropoides picadoi. The crude venoms were fractionated by reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), ...
Stability, distribution and use of antivenoms for snakebite envenomation in Latin America: Report of a workshop
The issues of antivenom stability and distribution, and the training of health staff in the correct use of antivenoms in Latin America were discussed in a workshop held at Instituto Clodomiro Picado, Costa Rica, in September ...
Venom, venomics, antivenomics
Venoms comprise mixtures of peptides and proteins tailored by Natural Selection to act on vital systems of the prey or victim. Here we review our proteomic protocols for uncoiling the composition, immunological profile, ...
