Plantas alexitéricas: antídotos vegetales contra las picaduras de serpientes venenosas
RESUMEN: En el presente trabajo se realiza una revision de aquellos vegetales utilizados tradicionalmente, como remedios etnomedicinales, frente a las picaduras de serpientes venenosas; considerando…
Non-identity of reaction centres for pyrophosphatase and toxic actions of cardiotoxin II: The status of cardiotoxin II as a metalloprotein
- Chemistry, BiologyJournal of Biosciences
It is suggested that the reaction centres in the toxin for the two activities are different and that the pyrophosphatase activity is not causally connected with the lethal toxicity of the toxin.

Effects of Nicotinic and Muscarinic Agents on an Identified Motoneurone and its Direct Afferent Inputs in Larval Manduca Sexta
The EPSP was reversibly inhibited in a dose-dependent fashion by the cholinergic antagonists d -tubocurarine, atropine and mecamylamine, indicating that the planta hair afferent neurones use acetylcholine (ACh) as a neurotransmitter.
El suero antiofídico polivalente producido en Costa Rica: Estabilidad y capacidad neutralizante
En este trabajo se revisan y discuten una serie de aspectos relativos a la produccion, estabilidad y capacidad neutralizante en el suero antiofidico polivalente producido en el Instituto Clodomiro…
INTO THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM PROTEASES OF ARGIOPE AURANT 1 A ( ARANEAE : ARANEIDAE ) , HEMOLYTIC AGENTS OF SPIDER VENOMS , AND THE ROLE OF BOTH IN NECROTIC ARACHNIDISM
The data do not support the suggestions that spider digestive collagenases have a primary role in spider bite necrosis, and it is hypothesized that spider proteases can undergo a reversible aggregation to account for this behavior.
Comparative Venomics of the Vipera ammodytes transcaucasiana and Vipera ammodytes montandoni from Turkey Provides Insights into Kinship
The comparative analysis of the viper venoms on the proteome level reveals a close relationship between the Vipera ammodytes subspecies, which could be considered to clarify the classification of the Transcaucasian Nose-horned Viper.
W ERNER , 1898 ) V ENOM
- Medicine, Biology
The results on what happens in the kidney and liver of mice after injecting the venom of M. bornmuelleri had many similarities with the effect of venom of other vipers, and were proportional to the dose of venom injected into the laboratory mice.
Synthesis and structure-activity relationships of inhibitors of bacterial hyaluronidase: An approach to obtain compounds with drug-like properties
- Biology, Chemistry
The goal of this thesis was the design, synthesis, identification, and pharmacological characterization of novel low-molecular weight inhibitors of the bacterial hyaluronidase SagHyal4755 with improved drug-like properties.
