Introduction: The study compares the venom of species, Vipera berus, from two geographically distinct areas. Individuals living in Slovakia produce larger volumes of venom in a venom gland compared to individuals living in Poland. Methods: The complex molecular structure of individual native adder venom was recorded by synchronous fluorescence fingerprint, atomic force microscopy and protein electrophoresis. Results: Fluorescence spectroscopy revealed differences in Slovak and Polish male and…

New Approaches in Monitoring Venom of Genus Dendroaspis
TLDR
These novel methods show that the least toxic Dendroaspis intermedius contained the greatest amount of proteins contrary to DendROaspis polylepis with a considerably lower content of proteins but the highest toxic bioactivity.
Fluorescent Profiling of Venom-Selected Cobra Species
TLDR
The atomic force microscopy revealed different surfaces of compared venoms as a result of different amounts of proteins and the synchronous fluorescence analysis showed higher endogenous fluorescence of Naja ashei venom in comparison with Naja nigricollis venom.
Age-dependent variations in the venom proteins of Vipera kaznakovi Nikolsky, 1909 and Vipera ammodytes (Linnaeus, 1758) (Ophidia: Viperidae)
TLDR
The venom extracts of Vipera kaznakovi and Vipera ammodytes specimens had a viscosity higher than that of water and significant quantitative differences especially between the 2 shorter individuals, while similar electrophoretic mobility patterns and fraction numbers were observed.
BIOCHEMISTRY AND PHARMACOLOGY OF COLUBRID SNAKE VENOMS
TLDR
There appears to be a greater number of venom components shared among the colubrids and the front-fanged snakes than has been previously noted, and it is probable that as analytical methods improve, more similarities will emerge.
Enzymatic toxins from snake venom: structural characterization and mechanism of catalysis
TLDR
The structures of inhibitor–enzyme complexes provide ideal platforms for the design of potent inhibitors which are useful in the development of prototypes and lead compounds with potential therapeutic applications.
SYNCHRONOUS FLUORESCENCE SPECTRA OF FIBRINOLYTIC PRINCIPLE FROM SNAKE VENOM OF AGKISTRODON ACUTUS
The synchronous fluorescence spectra of fibrinolytic principle (FP) from snake venom of Agkistodon acutus have been studied. It is found that the synchronous fluorescence spectrum of FP for 70 nm
Medical Use of Snake Venom Proteins
TLDR
Application of Snake Venom Proteins in the Diagnosis of Hemostatic Disorders and Use of Thrombin-Like Snake Venom Enzymes in the Treatment of Vascular Occlusive Diseases is studied.
