Abstract

Collective characteristics of the venoms belonging to various taxons of Central Asian snakes, demonstrating levels of toxicity and efficiency of hemorrhagic action, together with proteolytic, esterase, and phospholipase activities, have been obtained. A comparative analysis of the collective characteristics (“portraits”) of the venoms and their changes on degradative treatment has shown that the hemorrhagic action of the venoms of viperine and crotalid snakes is connected with metalloproteins. In contrast to the venoms of the elapids (cobras) the toxicity of the venoms of the viperine and crotalid snakes exhibits a dependence on the hemmorhagic effect and the activity of the metalloproteins causing it.
