Preliminary biochemical characterization of the venoms of five Colubridae species from Brazil.


The paraphyletic family Colubridae comprises several species of rear-fanged snakes with toxin-secreting Duvernoy's gland, some of them able to cause human envenomation with systemic and/or local damage.
