A potent platelet aggregation inducer, aggretin, was purified from Malayan-pit-viper (Calloselasma rhodostoma) venom by ionic-exchange chromatography, gel-filtration chromatography and HPLC. It is a heterodimeric protein (29 kDa) devoid of esterase, phospholipase A and thrombin-like activity. Aggretin (> 5 nM) elicited platelet aggregation with a lag period(More)
By means of liquid chromatography consisting of gel filtration, anionic exchange, and C8 reverse-phase HPLC, a selective inhibitor of collagen-induced platelet aggregation, named crovidisin, has been purified to homogeneity from the venom of Crotalus viridis snake. Crovidisin is a single-chain, 53-kDa protein with a selective inhibitory activity on(More)
Background:Two brown-like adipocytes, including classical brown adipocytes from brown adipose tissues and beige cells from white adipose tissues, regulate thermogenesis. The developmental and functional induction of brown-like cells provides a defense against obesity and associated metabolic diseases. Our previous study suggests dietary luteolin can improve(More)
