Exploring New Molecules and Activities from Lonomia obliqua Caterpillars
TLDR
To identify the venom proteins related to human envenomation, a 2D electrophoresis map is being performed as an attempt to find the major toxins recognized by the anti-lonomia venom.
Anticoagulant and factor Xa-like activities of Tityus discrepans scorpion venom
TLDR
The results demonstrated that TdV contain components with factor Xa-like activity (procoagulants) as well fibrinogenolytic compounds present in the fraction S1 and components withfactor Xa inhibitory activity in the fractions S4 and S5 (anticoagulant).
BBRC Purification of a phospholipase A 2 from Lonomia obliqua caterpillar bristle extract
TLDR
The PLA2 purified herein appears to be responsible for the indirect hemolytic activity of the crude bristle extract, and is tentatively placed among Group III phospholipases A2.

BIOCHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF Lonomia obliqua BRISTLE EXTRACT CHUDZINSKI-TAVASSI A. M.(1), CARRIJO-CARVALHO L. C.(1) (1) Laboratory of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Butantan Institute, São Paulo, Brazil ABSTRACT: Lonomia obliqua caterpillar is frequently seen in accidents with humans espe
TLDR
A consumptive coagulopathy was found to be the main cause of bleeding complications observed in patients after contact with L. obliqua, and two procoagulant toxins, a factor X activator and a prothrombin activator (Lopap) were isolated from LOCBE and characterized.
Factor Xa-like and fibrin(ogen)olytic activities of a serine protease from Hippasa agelenoides spider venom gland extract
TLDR
The present study is for the first time reporting the factor Xa-like activity of a serine protease especially from the spider venom that exhibited opposing effects on hemostasis, the pro-coagulant activity and the anti-coagellant activity including fibrin(ogen)olytic and platelet aggregation inhibition activities.

Lonomia obliqua caterpillar spicules trigger human blood coagulation via activation of factor X and prothrombin.
TLDR
The ability of hirudin to inhibit this coagulant activity suggests that this inhibitor could be beneficial in the treatment of patients envenomed by L. obliqua caterpillars.

TLDR
The comparison between the activation of r-prothrombin and D419N-prohrombin by snake venoms permitted differentiation between proteolytic activation and autocatalytic conversion of prothrom bin.

TLDR
Results support a mechanism in which prothrombin is first cleaved, either by Factor Xa or thrombin, to yield Intermediate 1 from its COOH-terminal region and Intermediate 3 from its NH2-Terminal region, and a mechanism which indicates that the activation proceeds by the sequential cleavage of portions of the NH2 -terminal regions of prothombin and the intermediates.
