Bothrops Moojeni Venom Peptides Containing Bradykinin Potentiating Peptides Sequences
Abstract:Eight peptides were isolated from Bothrops moojeni venom by filtration followed by HPLC. MALDI mass spectroscopy and Edman degradation determined the purity, Mr and sequence of the peptides, respectively. Three (BmP7, BmP8 and BmvP11) of them were homologues with the biologically active B. jararaca bradykinin potentiating peptides while the other with peptides or protein from different sources.

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
