DEATH FROM "WASP" STING.
Disc electrophoresis of snake venoms. I. A qualitative comparison of the protein patterns from the species of Crotalidae and Elapidae.
It is suggested that the classification of venomous snakes from the standpoint of venom compositions is of fundamental importance in snakebite pathology.
Venoms of Apidae
The venom injected by the stinging honey bee has been the subject of some of the most exhaustive and extensive research activities in the entire field of insect biochemistry.

Hymenoptera: Pure Venom from Bees, Wasps, and Hornets
Pure venom can be obtained from bees, wasps, and hornets by electrical stimulation with inexpensive apparatus.
Disc Electrophoresis of Hymenoptera Venoms and Body Proteins
The venom proteins of honey bee, Polistes wasp, yellow hornet, and yellow jacket are similar but not identical. Extracts of venom sacs and whole insects contain several proteins not found in the pure…
Procamine and other basic peptides in the venom of the honeybee (Apis mellifera).

THE VENOM OF THE MUD-DAUBER WASP. 3. SCELIPHRON CAEMENTARIUM: GENERAL CHARACTER.
This is the first investigation of any wasp venom to deal with the pure venom as opposed to a venom-apparatus extract and reveals a minimum of 15 compounds not present in the venom itself, thus emphasizing the value of studies based on the natural venom.
THE VENOM OF THE MUD-DAUBER WASP. II. SCELIPHRON CAEMENTARIUM: PROTEIN CONTENT.
Gel filtration of Sceliphron caementarium venom, obtained by electrical excitation, has shown an unexpectedly small protein fraction of the dried venom. Disc electrophoresis was used to separate five…
