Micrurus corallinus (painted coral snake)

Venom composition image
Figure 1: Composition of M.corallinus venom, studied at the proteomic level (A, Correa-Netto et al., 2011) and at the transcriptomic level (B, Leao et al., 2009). The venom contains the following families: Three-finger toxin, Phospholipase A2, L-amino-acid oxidase , true venom lectin, SVMP (snake venom metalloproteinase), serine protease (peptidase S1, natriuretic peptide, Kunitz-type inhibitor (venom Kunitz-type), NGF (NGF-beta) and waprin.
