Abstract

It has been recently demonstrated that the hemotoxic venom activity of several species of snakes can be inhibited by carbon monoxide (CO) or a metheme forming agent. These and other data suggest that the biometal, heme, may be attached to venom enzymes and may be modulated by CO. A novel fibrinogenolytic metalloproteinase, named CatroxMP-II, was isolated and purified from the venom of a Crotalus atrox viper, and subjected to proteolysis and mass spectroscopy. An ion similar to the predicted singly charged m/z of heme at 617.18 was identified. Lastly, CORM-2 (tricarbonyldichlororuthenium (II) dimer, a CO releasing molecule) inhibited the fibrinogenolytic effects of CatroxMP-II on coagulation kinetics in human plasma. In conclusion, we present the first example of a snake venom metalloproteinase that is heme-bound and CO-inhibited.
