Comparison of Methods for Measuring Protein Concentration in Venom Samples
Five methods used to measure protein content in venoms of two snake species: the Viperids representative, Agkistrodon contortrix, and the Elapid representative, Naja ashei are compared to help draw attention to the problem of measuring protein concentration, especially in such a complex mixture as animal venoms.

First Look at the Venom of Naja ashei
The main components of analysed venom are 3FTxs (Three-Finger Toxins) and PLA2s (Phospholipases A2) and the presence of cysteine-rich venom proteins, 5′-nucleotidase and metalloproteinases has been confirmed. Expand
An Effective Method of Isolating Honey Proteins
This work proposes a new method of protein isolation from honey based on saturated phenol that is potentially less expensive and less time-consuming than other previously described methods, while being equally effective. Expand
Antimicrobial Activity of Protein Fraction from Naja ashei Venom against Staphylococcus epidermidis
A new group of low abundant proteins containing the Ig-like domain that have not been previously described in snake venoms are identified, showing exceptional antimicrobial effects both alone and in combination with antibiotics. Expand
