Anticoagulants Array Library

Library Code: T-VDAacog
 
Anticoagulants are important drug tools for a range of cardiovascular disorders including heart attack and stroke. Alongside leeches, venoms from snakes and jelly fish are also rich sources of new anticoagulants. The Anticoagulant Targeted Venom Discovery Array™ libraries contain pure venom fractions from 12, 24, 48 or 96 species optimized for identification of novel tools. Each array contains literature-cited, characterized venoms with anticoagulant activity as positive controls. The other venom fractions making up the library have been specially selected by our drug discovery scientists to maximize novel hit potential.
 
T-VDAacog control venoms include:
  • Naja kaouthia (monocled cobra) which contains fibrinogenolytic toxins1
  • Aurelia aurita (moon jellyfish) where the fibrinogenolytic activity can completely liquefy clots2
  • Hirudo verbana (medicinal leech) which famously also contains a diverse collection of anticoagulants3
