A number of C-type lectin-like proteins that affect thrombosis and hemostasis by inhibiting or activating specific platelet membrane receptors or blood coagulation factors have been isolated from the venom of various snake species and characterized and more than 80 have been sequenced. Recent data on the primary sequences and 3D structures of C-type lectins and C-type lectin-like proteins from snake venoms have enabled us to analyze their molecular evolution. Statistical analysis of their cDNA… CONTINUE READING
