Venom exonuclease. II. Amino acid composition and carbohydrate, metal ion and lipid content in the Crotalus adamanteus venom exonuclease.

Abstract

Exonuclease from Crotalus adamanteus venom has only threonine as N-terminimal amono acid residue. It was examined for its amino acid composition, -SH and S-S groups. It has no free -SH groups and seven S-S bonds. The analysis of the carbohydrate residues in the enzyme proves that it is a glycoprotein. It contains neutral sugars (9.2%), amino sugars (1.9… (More)
