Enzymes Modulator Array Library

Library Code: T-VDAEnz
 
Enzymes are incredibly useful tools in a wide range of disciplines and industrial processes. Snake venoms are a rich source of enzymes such as phospholipases (PLA2), snake venom metalloproteinase (SVMP), phophodiesterases, L-amino-acid oxidase (LAO) and many more. Moreover, invertebrate venoms also often contain enzymes such as phospholipase. The Enzymes 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 as positive controls. Other venom fractions making up the library have been specially selected by our drug discovery scientists to maximize novel hit potential.
 
T-VDAEnz control venoms include:
  • Phospholipase A2-containing Naja nigricollis venom (black-necked spitting cobra)1
  • Deinagkistrodon acutus (hundred pace pit viper) which contains an L-amino-acid oxidase enzyme that induces apoptosis in HeLa cancer cells2
  • Crotalus adamanteus (Eastern diamondback rattlesnake) venom which contains snake venom metalloproteinases such as Adamalysin3
