Evaluation of the antichagasic activity of batroxicidin, a cathelicidin‐related antimicrobial peptide found in Bothrops atrox venom gland
&NA; Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are potential alternatives to conventional antibiotics, as they have a fast mode of action, a low likelihood of resistance development and can act in conjunctionExpand
Antimicrobial effect of Dinoponera quadriceps (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) venom against Staphylococcus aureus strains
Dinoponera quadriceps venom (DqV) was examined to evaluate the antibacterial activity and its bactericidal action mechanism against Staphylococcus aureus.
Evaluation of KIM‐1 as an early biomarker of snakebite‐induced AKI in mice
ABSTRACT Acute kidney injury (AKI) is one of the most important complications of bothropic poisoning and its early identification remains challenging. The nephrotoxicity of Bothrops insularis venomExpand
Bothropoides insularis venom cytotoxicity in renal tubular epithelia cells.
Bothropoides insularis (jararaca-ilhoa) is a native endemic snake limited to the specific region of Queimada Island, on São Paulo coast. Several local and systemic effects have been described due toExpand
Bothropoides pauloensis venom effects on isolated perfused kidney and cultured renal tubular epithelial cells.
Snake envenomation (Bothrops genus) is common in tropical countries and acute kidney injury is one of the complications observed in Bothrops snakebite with relevant morbidity and mortality. Here, weExpand
Antiparasitic effect of Dinoponera quadriceps giant ant venom.
Neglected tropical diseases (NTD) are treated with toxic therapy of limited efficacy. Previously, we studied the antimicrobial effect of Dinoponera quadriceps venom (DqV) against bacteria. ToExpand
Trypanocidal activity of mastoparan from Polybia paulista wasp venom by interaction with TcGAPDH
ABSTRACT Chagas disease, considered a neglected disease, is a parasitic infection caused by Trypanosoma cruzi, which is endemic throughout the world. Previously, the antimicrobial effect ofExpand
The dinoponeratoxin peptides from the giant ant Dinoponera quadriceps display in vitro antitrypanosomal activity
Abstract The crude venom of the giant ant Dinoponera quadriceps is a cocktail of polypeptides and organic compounds that shows antiparasitic effects against Trypanosoma cruzi, the causative agent ofExpand
Differences between renal effects of venom from two Bothrops jararaca populations from southeastern and southern Brazil
ABSTRACT Components from animal venoms may vary according to the snake's age, gender and region of origin. Recently, we performed a proteomic analysis of Bothrops jararaca venom from southern (BjSv)Expand
Acute Kidney Injury Induced by Bothrops Venom: Insights into the Pathogenic Mechanisms
Acute kidney injury (AKI) following snakebite is common in developing countries and Bothrops genus is the main group of snakes in Latin America. To evaluate the pathogenic mechanisms associated withExpand
