Burbrink Early origin of viviparity and multiple reversions to oviparity in squamate reptiles. Adult Protobothrops venom promotes hemorrhage, hypotension, incoagulable blood, and prey digestion, consistent with mammalian predation. Ovophis venom composition is less readily interpreted, owing to insufficient pharmacological data for venom serine and metalloproteases, which comprise more than Ovophis venom apparently represents a hybrid strategy optimized for frogs and small mammals. The former quantifies transcript composition, allowing detection of novel proteins, but cannot indicate which proteins are actually secreted, as does MS.
We show, for the first time, that transcript and peptide abundances are correlated. This means that MS can be used for quantitative, non-invasive venom profiling, which will be beneficial for studies of endangered species.
Keywords: Transcriptome, Illumina, proteome, Mass spectrometry, Venom, Okinawa, Viperidae, Crotalinae, Toxins, Enzymes Background Snakes employ a great variety of biochemical compounds to immobilize, kill, and digest their prey [ 1 , 2 ], although whether venom actually augments assimilation efficiency is a matter of continuing debate [ 2 - 6 ]. Venom composition necessarily reflects both the biology of the snake and the nature of its principal prey, factors that change ontogenetically and geographically [ 7 - 13 ].
Biochemical components of a venom participate in one or more of three fundamental envenomation strategies. Both serve to limit prey flight, in snake taxa which strike, release, and then track their prey most viperids , or to overcome prey resistance, in snakes that seize and bulldog their prey many elapids and all colubrids.
The third strategy is digestive and commences degradation of prey tissues internally, even before the prey has been engulfed. Normally, all three strategies operate simultaneously and many individual venom components participate in more than one of them. Each of these three strategies contains interchangeable biochemical constituents.
Different venomous taxa employ different combinations of constituents, and no single species employs them all [ 1 ]. Snake venom composition can be studied either at the proteomic or the transcriptomic level. Traditionally, snake proteins were sequenced after chromatographic purification, after isolation on polyacrylamide gels, or after cloning cDNA from the venom glands.
Although these approaches are typically necessary for studies of protein function, they are laborious, and they are less quantitative than might be desired. Because a relatively small number of individual proteins or clones can be processed at one time, and because techniques vary between labs, comparative analyses of venom chemistry have been difficult [ 14 , 15 ].

In a study of Bothropoides pauloensis venom, Rodrigues et al. The degree of correspondence varied, depending upon the protein family. Transcriptome and proteome were in good agreement in regard to bradykinin-potentiating peptides, phospholipases A2, and L-amino acid oxidase, but diverged sharply with regard to metalloproteases and C-type lectin-like components.
