Identification and characterisation of Kunitz-type plasma kallikrein inhibitors unique to Oxyuranus sp. snake venoms.

Abstract

As part of a wider study on Australian snake venom components, we have identified and characterised Kunitz-type protease inhibitors from the venoms of Oxyuranus scutellatus and Oxyuranus microlepidotus (Australian taipans) with plasma kallikrein inhibitory activity. Each inhibitor had a mass of 7 kDa and was purified from the venom as part of a protein… (More)
