Effects of a myotoxic phospholipase A2 isolated from Bothrops asper venom on skeletal muscle sarcoplasmic reticulum
The myotoxin from B. asper snake venom inhibited Ca-ATPase activity of rabbit sarcoplasmic reticulum after incubation in vitro. Inhibition was non-competitive and albumin enhanced the effect of the toxin. Furthermore, B. ...
Comparative study on coagulant, defibrinating, fibrinolytic and fibrinogenolytic activities of Costa Rican crotaline snake venoms and their neutralization by a polyvalent antivenom
The coagulant, defibrinating, fibrino lytic and fibrinogenolytic activities of venoms from ten species of Costa Rican crotaline snakes were studied, together with the neutralization of these effects by a polyvalent antivenom. ...
Neutralización de las actividades tóxicas y enzimáticas de cuatro venenos de serpientes de Guatemala y Honduras por el antiveneno polivalente producido en Costa Rica
We studied the ability of the polyvalent antivenom produced in Costa Rica to neutralize lethal, hemorrhagic, edema-forming, proteolytic, hemolytic, hyaluronidase and fibrinolytic activities of the venoms of Bothrops asper ...
Ability of a polyvalent antivenom to neutralize the venom of Lachesis muta melanocephala, a new Costa Rican subspecies of the bushmaster
Several toxic and enzymatic activities of the venom of L. m. melanocephala were studied. This venom has many similarities with that of L. m. stenophrys, although there are quantitative differences in venom activities, as ...
Comparative study of the edema-forming activity of Costa Rican snake venoms and its neutralization by a polyvalent antivenom
The edema-forming activity of eight Costa Rican crotaline snake venoms and its neutralization by a polyvalent antivenom were studied using the mouse footpad test. All of the venoms induced edema, the highest activity being ...
Neutralization of proteolytic and hemorrhagic activities of Costa Rican snake venoms by a polyvalent antivenom
The polyvalent antivenom produced at the Instituto Clodomiro Picado, Costa Rica, was tested for its capacity to neutralize proteolytic and hemorrhagic activities of ten Costa Rican crotaline venoms. In experiments with ...
