Abstract: The photodynamic action of UV sensitized methylene blue (MB) was studied on the venom of Thailand cobra Naja siamensis. The reaction mixture comprising phosphate buffer (B), methylene blue (S), and venom protein (P) was exposed to UVR (ultra violet radiation) for 2 hours at 37°C. Stable excited species (S’) were generated by photodynamic action. These in B environment produced reduced substates SH2 and photooxidised products PO in the presence of atmospheric oxygen. Increased absorbance (OD) of the reaction mi… Show more
