Snake venom is a rich source of peptides and proteins with a wide range of actions. Many of the venom components are currently being tested for their usefulness in the treatment of many diseases ranging from neurological and cardiovascular to cancer. It is also important to constantly search for new proteins and peptides with properties not yet described. The venom of Vipera berus berus has hemolytic, proteolytic and cytotoxic properties, but its exact composition and the factors responsible… 
Proteomic Analyses of Agkistrodon contortrix contortrix Venom Using 2D Electrophoresis and MS Techniques
TLDR
Ten groups of proteins present in the venom are identified, of which phospholipase A2 and metalloprotease and serine proteases constitute the largest groups, and for the first time presence of 5′-nucleotidase in venom was found in this group of snakes.
Vipera berus berus Venom from Russia: Venomics, Bioactivities and Preclinical Assessment of Microgen Antivenom
TLDR
The results show that this antivenom is capable of neutralizing the lethal, hemorrhagic and PLA2 activities and third-generation antivenomics was applied to quantify the toxin-recognition landscape and the maximal binding capacity of theAntivenom for each component of the venom.
Comparison of Methods for Measuring Protein Concentration in Venom Samples
TLDR
Five methods used to measure protein content in venoms of two snake species: the Viperids representative, Agkistrodon contortrix, and the Elapid representative, Naja ashei are compared to help draw attention to the problem of measuring protein concentration, especially in such a complex mixture as animal venoms.
Old World Vipers—A Review about Snake Venom Proteomics of Viperinae and Their Variations
TLDR
The present compilation is the first comprehensive up-to-date database on Viperinae venom proteomes and differentiating between analytical methods and workflows and shows remarkable differences on the intra- and interspecies level across genera.
First Look at the Venom of Naja ashei
TLDR
The main components of analysed venom are 3FTxs (Three-Finger Toxins) and PLA2s (Phospholipases A2) and the presence of cysteine-rich venom proteins, 5′-nucleotidase and metalloproteinases has been confirmed.
Individual variability of venom from the European adder (Vipera berus berus) from one locality in Eastern Hungary
TLDR
This study demonstrates that individual venom variation among V. berus living in particular area of Eastern Hungary might contribute to a wider range of clinical manifestations of V. Berus envenoming than elsewhere in Europe.
Vipers of Major Clinical Relevance in Europe: Taxonomy, Venom Composition, Toxicology and Clinical Management of Human Bites.
TLDR
Clinicians are supported for the clinical management of viper envenomation, through taxonomic keys for main species identification, description of venom composition and mode of action of known toxins and provide a standardised clinical protocol and antivenom administration.
Venom-Induced Blood Disturbances by Palearctic Viperid Snakes, and Their Relative Neutralization by Antivenoms and Enzyme-Inhibitors
TLDR
The results highlight the evolutionary variations within Palearctic vipers and help to inform clinical management of viper envenomation.
Extended snake venomics by top-down in-source decay: Investigating the newly discovered Anatolian Meadow viper subspecies, Vipera anatolica senliki
TLDR
Online mass profiling and top-down venomics provide a detailed insight into the venom proteome of V. senliki and facilitates a comparative analysis of venom variability for the closely related subspecies, V. a.
An Effective Method of Isolating Honey Proteins
TLDR
This work proposes a new method of protein isolation from honey based on saturated phenol that is potentially less expensive and less time-consuming than other previously described methods, while being equally effective.

TLDR
This chapter discusses the multiple activities of the SVMPs, which have fibrin(ogen)olytic activity, act as prothrombin activators, activate blood coagulation factor X, possess apoptotic activity, inhibit platelet aggregation, are pro-inflammatory and inactivate blood serine proteinase inhibitors.
Isolation and characterization of Bradykinin potentiating peptides from Agkistrodon bilineatus venom
TLDR
The data suggest that the replacement of the highly conserved hydrophobic isoleucine by histidine does not affect the inhibitory activity, indicating that isoleucaine is not mandatory to inhibit the angiotensin converting enzyme.
Biological and biochemical activities of Vipera berus (European viper) venom.
TLDR
Vipera berus venom displayed in vitro proteolytic, fibrinolytic, anticoagulant, and phospholipase A2 activities, and induced a moderate local myonecrosis, evidenced by histological evaluation of injected tissue and biochemical parameters.

A multifaceted analysis of viperid snake venoms by two‐dimensional gel electrophoresis: An approach to understanding venom proteomics
TLDR
These approaches have given rise to a more thorough understanding of venom complexity and the toxins comprising these venoms and provide insights to investigators who wish to focus on these venom subpopulations of proteins in future studies.
Venom peptide analysis of Vipera ammodytes meridionalis (Viperinae) and Bothrops jararacussu (Crotalinae) demonstrates subfamily-specificity of the peptidome in the family Viperidae.
TLDR
Homology between venom BPPs from Viperidae snakes and venom natriuretic peptide precursors from Elapidae snakes suggests a structural similarity between the respective peptides from the peptidomes of both snake families.
Proteomic profiling of snake venom metalloproteinases (SVMPs): insights into venom induced pathology.
TLDR
It is feasible that the different distribution of SVMPs subgroups and their particular biochemical and pharmacological characteristics are two of the main factors contributing to these two radically different venom induced pathologies.
