Abstract

The hemolytic activities of the venom of , and were studied by using hypotonic solutions. The effects with whole venoms plus lecithin were compared with effects caused by boiled venom supernatant fluids containing phospholipase A and lecithin to gain insight into the role of heat-labile venom components on lysing human red blood cells. Phospholipase A in the supernatant fluids of all venoms with lecithin caused stabilization of red-blood-cell membranes. , and whole venoms demonstrated a specific lytic behavior, whereas whole venom demonstrated a nonspecific lytic behavior. Heparin altered the lytic behavior of whole venom but did not influence the other venoms.
