Viperine and crotaline snake venoms contain one or more hemorrhagic principles called hemorrhagins. These are zinc-containing metalloproteases characterized by the presence of a protease domain, with additional domains in some of them. They act essentially by degrading the component proteins of basement membrane underlying capillary endothelial cells. The(More)
Hexavalent chromium is more toxic and carcinogenic compared to its trivalent counterpart. Hexavalent chromium can be photocatalytically reduced to trivalent one using zinc oxide semiconductor and solar or UV radiation as light source. But an important ecological aspect is whether the net toxicity decreases after the photocatalytic process. In the present(More)
