Abstract

The electrophoretic mobilities of venom components from 15 Micrurus species were studied by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The venoms showed species-specific protein patterns under native (PAGE) or denaturing (urea-PAGE) conditions. However, electrophoretic patterns obtained by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions were similar. The proteins of all venoms had mol. wts either in the range of 45 to 75 kDa or lower than 14.5 kDa. PAGE and urea-PAGE of single extraction venom samples from 22 M. nigrocinctus nigrocinctus specimens revealed some proteins completely conserved, whereas others exhibited intraspecies variation. Based on ELISA cross-reactivity studies with 11 monoclonal antibodies against M. n. nigrocinctus venom, venoms from M. n. nigrocinctus, M. nigrocinctus mosquitensis, M. fulvius fulvius, M. dumerilii carnicauda and M. albicinctus were included in the same antigenic group, whereas M. frontalis frontalis and M. frontalis braziliensis venoms constituted a second group. Micrurus alleni and M. spixii spixii showed reactivity patterns similar to groups 1 and 2, respectively. Venoms from M. surinamensis surinamensis, M. corallinus, M. ibiboboca, M. hemiprichii ortoni, M. lemniscatus helleri and M. mipartitus had unique ...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.
