Snake toxins impede hemostasis of prey through multiple mechanisms. Blood coagulation factors V and X, prothrombin, or the anticoagulant protein C are among their typical targets. A number of thrombin-like and plasmin-like (fibrinolytic) enzymes have also been characterized that interact with...
Snake venoms are rich in a large variety of proteins and peptides that can interfere with the hemostatic system. This review focuses on snake-venom proteins, with or without enzymatic activity, that bind to blood coagulation factors and exhibit anticoagulant effects. These proteins include (1)...
When the term “disintegrin” was first coined in 1990, it described a family of naturally occurring proteins with low molecular weights and highly conserved sequences, both in their cysteine arrangements and adhesive Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) motifs. Another common characteristic was the inhibitory...
Based on sequence comparison, snake venom components affecting hemostasis have been classified into various families, including serine proteases, metalloproteinases, C-type lectins, disintegrins, and phospholipases. These proteins affect platelet function by binding or degrading von Willebrand...
