The proteomes of the venoms of the Brazilian wandering "armed" spiders Phoneutria nigriventer, Phoneutria reidyi, and Phoneutria keyserlingi, were compared using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis. The venom components were also fractionated using a combination of preparative reverse phase HPLC on Vydac C4, analytical RP-HPLC on Vydac C8 and C18 and cation(More)
The primary structure of a lectin isolated from the red alga Bryothamnion triquetrum was established by combination of Edman degradation of sets of overlapping peptides and mass spectrometry. It contains 91 amino acids and two disulphide bonds. The primary structure of the B. triquetrum lectin does not show amino acid sequence similarity with known plant(More)
Three isoinhibitors of locust and cockroach gut alpha-amylases were purified from seeds of sorghum by saline extraction, precipitation with ammonium sulphate, affinity chromatography on Red-Sepharose and preparative RP-HPLC on Vydac C18. The complete primary structures were determined by automatic degradation of the intact reduced and S-alkylated proteins,(More)
The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) held the Global Forum on Telemedicine: Connecting the World Through Partnerships in September 2007 with sponsorship by the Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC), U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC). The goal was to bring together key stakeholders in global healthcare(More)
We describe here the isolation and characterization of a major albumin from the seeds of Cereus jamacaru (Cactaceae), to which we gave the trivial name of cactin. This protein has a molecular mass of 11.3 kDa and is formed by a light chain (3.67 kDa) and a heavy chain (7.63 kDa). This protein was isolated using a combination of gel filtration chromatography(More)
Two inhibitors (SI alpha 4 and SI alpha 5) of the alpha-amylases from insect and mammalian sources were purified from seeds of Sorghum bicolor by saline extraction, precipitation with ammonium sulphate, affinity chromatography on Red Sepharose, and preparative and analytical reverse-phase HPLC on columns of Vydac C18. The complete primary structures of(More)
