Identification and analysis of venom gland-specific genes from the coastal taipan (Oxyuranus scutellatus) and related species

Abstract

Australian terrestrial elapid snakes contain amongst the most potently toxic venoms known. However, despite the well-documented clinical effects of snake bite, little research has focussed on individual venom components at the molecular level. To further characterise the components of Australian elapid venoms, a complementary (cDNA) microarray was produced… (More)
