Comparative proteomic analysis of the venom of the taipan snake, Oxyuranus scutellatus, from Papua New Guinea and Australia: Role of neurotoxic and procoagulant effects in venom toxicity
The venom proteomes of populations of the highly venomous taipan snake, Oxyuranus scutellatus, from Australia and Papua New Guinea (PNG), were characterized by reverse-phase HPLC fractionation, followed by analysis of ...
Snake venomics of the pit vipers Porthidium nasutum, Porthidium ophryomegas, and Cerrophidion godmani from Costa Rica: Toxicological and taxonomical insights
Within the Neotropical pit vipers, a lineage of primarily Middle American snake species referred to as the “Porthidium group” includes the genera Atropoides, Cerrophidion, and Porthidium. In this study, the venom proteomes ...
Snake venomics and toxicological profiling of the arboreal pitviper Bothriechis supraciliaris from Costa Rica
The genus Bothriechis comprises a lineage of nine species of Neotropical pitvipers distributed mainly in highlands across Middle America, all adapted to arboreal habitats. Bothriechis supraciliaris is a relatively recently ...
Second generation snake antivenomics: Comparing immunoaffinity and immunodepletion protocols
A second generation antivenomics protocol, based on affinity chromatography, was compared with a previously (first generation) immunodepletion protocol using as a proof of principle the pan-African EchiTAb-Plus-ICP® IgG ...
