Venoms from eight Bothrops spp. were fractionated by ion-exchange chromatography on CM-Sepharose at pH 8.0 for the purification of myotoxins. Chromatographic profiles showed differences regarding(More)
Envenomations by the snake Bothrops asper are characterized by prominent local tissue damage (i.e. myonecrosis), blistering, hemorrhage and edema. Various phospholipases A2 and metalloproteinases(More)
A metalloproteinase, named BaP1, was purified to homogeneity from the venom of Bothrops asper (Pacific region) of Costa Rica by ion-exchange chromatography on CM-Sephadex and gel filtration on(More)
Lys49 phospholipase A(2) homologues are abundant in viperid snake venoms. These proteins have substitutions at the calcium-binding loop and catalytic center which render them enzymatically inactive;(More)
