Several natural compounds from plants and their synthetic analogs have shown to be protective. In this study 3, 4, 5-tri-hydroxy benzoic acid, the gallic acid (GA) was tested against the local(More)
The current study describes the biochemical, biophysical and pharmacological properties of Hag-protease-II from Hippasa agelenoides spider venom gland extract. The Hag-protease-II was purified to homogeneity using gel filtration and ion-exchange chromatography. The molecular mass was found to be 28.749 kDa by MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. PMSF abolished the(More)
