Enzymatic and immunological properties of Bungarus flaviceps (red-headed krait) venom

Abstract: ABSTRACT:Bungarus flaviceps (red-headed krait) venom presents an intravenous LD 50 of 0.32 μg/g and exhibits enzymatic activities similar to other Bungarus toxins. ELISA cross-reactions between anti-Bungarus flaviceps and a variety of elapid and viperid venoms were observed in the current study. Double-sandwich ELISA was highly specific, since anti-B. flaviceps serum did not cross-react with any tested venom, indicating that this assay can be used for species diagnosis in B. flaviceps bites. In the indirect EL… Show more
