Stingrays are elasmobranchs found in both tropical and temperate seas and in freshwater rivers. They exhibit the habit of being buried in shallow graves in the sand or mud. In some families, there is one or more stings retrosserated bilaterally located in the tail, formed by a mineralized structure covered by layers of epidermal cells. Stingray accidents often occur when the animals are...
The clinical picture caused by Loxosceles spider venom is characterized initially by an intense local inflammatory reaction and subsequent presence of dermonecrosis at the bite site. In previous studies it was found that phospholipases D with molecular mass of approximately 35 kDa are the main activities responsible for dermonecrotic, hemolytic and nephrotoxic activities. In addition, s...
