A very potent platelet-aggregating glycoprotein, convulxin, was purified from the venom of Crotalus durissus cascavella by gel filtration on Sephadex G75 and by adsorption to Sepharose 4B gel. The apparent molecular weights of the native protein were 78400 and 60000 daltons determined by SDS electrophoresis and by gel filtration under denaturating… CONTINUE READING
