Cardiovascular Disease Array Library

Library Code: T-VDACV
Snake venoms are a rich source of new cardiovascular tools such as C-type lectins, serine proteases, natriuretics and a wealth of signaling peptides. The Cardiovascular 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 active in analgesic pathways 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-VDACV control venoms include:
  • Crotalus adamanteus (eastern diamondback rattlesnake) where several bradykinin potentiating peptides have been discovered1
  • Dendroaspis angusticeps (eastern green mamba) where several novel natriuretic peptides have been discovered2
  • Bitis gabonica (Gaboon viper) venom which contains a large abundance of serine proteases and, in particular, rhinocerase3
