Snake venoms are known to be an extensive source of bioactive peptides. Bradykinin-potentiating peptides (BPPs) are inhibitors of the angiotensin-converting enzyme that have already been identified in the venom of many snake, scorpion, spider and batrachian species. Their most characteristic structural features are an invariable N-terminal pyroglutamate(More)
Due to their complexity and diversity, animal venoms represent an extensive source of bioactive compounds such as peptides and proteins. Conventional approaches for their characterization often require large quantities of biological material. Current mass spectrometry (MS) techniques now give access to a wealth of information in a short working time frame(More)
Mutations in the ubiquitous factor eIF2B involved in protein synthesis and its regulation have been reported in human brain genetic disorders. In order to analyse the functional consequences of the mutations and to find specific biomarkers of eIF2B-related disorders, proteomics and peptidomics studies were performed on lymphoblasts from eIF2B-mutated(More)
The term "venomics" was coined to describe the global study of venom and venom glands, targeting comprehensive characterization of the whole toxin profile of a venomous animal by means of proteomics, transcriptomics, genomics and bioinformatics studies. This integrative approach is supported by the rapid evolution of protein, RNA and DNA sequencing(More)
