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 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 ...
