How Just Drops of Viper Venom Pack a Deadly Punch

American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)

Researchers at Brazil's largest producer of antivenoms report a structural analysis of glycans modifying venom proteins in several species of lancehead viper. The snakes are among the most dangerous in South America. The report offers insight into the solubility and stability of toxic proteins from venom, and into how venoms from different species vary. Scientists are now working to map glycan structures back onto the proteins they modify.

From Haifa to Tokyo: Medical Detectives Team Up to Find Answers for a Child with an Ultra-Rare Disease

American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)

Routine tests couldn't diagnose an Israeli infant's developmental disorder. Until they completed whole-exome sequencing, his doctors were stumped. After finding a homozygous rare allele, they teamed up with Japanese experts on the affected enzyme to describe its role in myelination in a paper in the June issue of the Journal of Lipid Research.
