Figure 1: Composition of the Turkish Vipera transcaucasiana, studied at the proteomic level (Hempel et al., 2018); quantified by the snake venomics approach (C18-RP-HPLC 214nm + 1D SDS PAGE densiometry)

The venom contains the following families:
PLA2 (phospholipase A2), VEGF, svSP (serine protease), svMP (metalloproteinase), LAAO (L-amino acid oxidase), Cysteine-rich secretory proteins (CRISP), CTL/Snaclec (C-type lectin related protein), PDE (phosphodiesterase), svMP-i (tripeptic svMP inhibitors of pHpG), BPP (Bradykinin-potentiating peptide), NP (natriuretic peptide) as well as further peptides and not annotated proteins.
