  • Secretion of venom in the venom glands of Vipera palaestinae was studied by measuring the protein content and enzymatic activities of L-amino acid oxidase (LAO), phosphodiesterase (PDE), and benzoylarginine ethyl esterase (BAEE). These were tested in the accumulating venom and gland homogenates at 0, 2, 3, 4,6, and 15 days after an intitial emptying of the venom glands by milking. Changes in the total activities of the enzymes and in the protein concentration were found in the venom samples… CONTINUE READING
