Hyperalgesic and edematogenic effects of peptides isolated from the venoms of honeybee (Apis mellifera) and neotropical social wasps (Polybia paulista and Protonectarina sylveirae)
(Amino Acids, 2011-01-01) [Artigo]
Stings by bees and wasps, including Brazilian species, are a severe public health problem. The local reactions observed after the envenoming includes typical inflammatory response and pain. Several studies have been performed ...
Proteomic characterization of the multiple forms of the PLAs from the venom of the social wasp Polybia paulista
(Proteomics, 2011-04-01) [Artigo]
The phospholipases A(1) (PLA(1)s) from the venom of the social wasp Polybia paulista occur as a mixture of different molecular forms. To characterize the molecular origin of these structural differences, an experimental ...
A new scenario of bioprospecting of Hymenoptera venoms through proteomic approach
(Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins Including Tropical Diseases, 2011-01-01) [Resenha]
Venoms represent a huge and essentially unexplored reservoir of bioactive components that may cure diseases that do not respond to currently available therapies. This review select advances reported in the literature from ...
A single nucleotide deletion at the C1 inhibitor gene as the cause of hereditary angioedema: insights from a Brazilian family
(Allergy, 2011-10-01) [Artigo]
Background: Hereditary angioedema is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by episodes of subcutaneous and submucosal edema. It is caused by deficiency of the C1 inhibitor protein, leading to elevated levels of ...
