Snake venoms are complex mixtures of inorganic and organic compounds constituted mainly of proteins and peptides. Among their toxic components are the metalloproteases, enzymes responsible for various local and systemic effects such as hemorrhage, myonecrosis, skin lesions, inflammation and activation of the complement system. Other toxic components are the phospholipases A2 (PLA2s), wh...
