Coralsnake Venomics: Analyses of Venom Gland Transcriptomes and Proteomes of Six Brazilian Taxa
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicates that the six Micrurus taxa diverged 15–35 million years ago and that they split from their last common ancestor with Old World elapines nearly 55 million years old, and given their early diversification, many cryptic micrurine taxa are anticipated.
Diversity of Micrurus Snake Species Related to Their Venom Toxic Effects and the Prospective of Antivenom Neutralization
TLDR
The data show that the antivenom used for human therapy in Brazil is not fully able to neutralize the main toxic activities present in the venoms from all Micrurus species occurring in the country, probably reflecting the adaptation of the snakes from this genus to vastly dissimilar habitats.
Biological and molecular properties of yellow venom of the Amazonian coral snake Micrurus surinamensis.
TLDR
Results indicate that antielapidic serum against M. surinamensis venom has weak potency (0.35mg/ml) in mice, and most proteins in the venom had masses < 14kDa, low phospholipase A2 activity, and no proteolytic activity.
Recognition of venom fractions from Brazilian coral snakes by antielapid serum
TLDR
The results suggest restricted efficacy of the antielapid serum, due to its limitations against species from the Amazon region, reinforcing the need for a review of intraspecific and interspecific studies of Micrurus venoms.

Venoms of coral snakes (Micrurus spp.): report on a multivalent antivenin for the Americas.
TLDR
The antivenin produced in horses immunized with a mixture of venoms from the species Micrurus nigrocinctus, M. mipartitus, and M. frontalis indicated it would be useful in treating bites received from most of the important coral snake species in North and South America.

Purification and characterization of a phospholipase A2 from the venom of the coral snake, Micrurus fulvius microgalbineus (Brown and Smith).
TLDR
A phospholipase A2 was purified from the Mexican coral snake Micrurus fulvius microgalbieus and the N-terminal sequence was shown to be Ser- leu-Leu-Asx-Phe-Lys- asx-Met-Ile-Glu-Ser-Thr..., which is homologous with that of phospholIPases from other snake venoms.

Cross-neutralization of Micrurus fulvius fulvius (coral snake) venom by anti-Micrurus carinicauda dumerilii serum.
TLDR
Gel-diffusion reactions showed that carinicauda venom contained more precipitating antIGens than fulvius venom; however, the venoms have several common antigens.
Pathogenesis of myonecrosis induced by coral snake (Micrurus nigrocinctus) venom in mice.
TLDR
The venom induced early functional and structural alterations in the plasma membrane of muscle cells, suggesting that sarcolemma is the primary site of action of this venom, and systemic pathology of coral snake envenoming may be more complex than previously thought.
