Presented here are four new cDNA sequences for hemorrhagic metalloproteinases from Crotalus atrox venom, hemorrhagic toxins a, b, c, and d. Comparison of the translated open reading frames to the mature protein sequences gives evidence for post-translational processing at both the amino and carboxyl termini. This comparison is also the basis for a new classification system for these precursors, based on their different sizes. Protein sequences in the zymogen region support the hypothesis of a… CONTINUE READING
