Amino acid sequences of three phospholipases A, I, III and IV, from the venom of the sea snake Laticauda semifasciata were elucidated. Each protein consisted of a single chain of 118 amino acid residues, including 14 half-cystine residues. They showed high homology among themselves, and with the other snake-venom phospholipases A and with the enzymes from mammalian pancreas. Phospholipases A III and IV were especially similar to each other, with only four differences out of their 118 amino acid… CONTINUE READING
