Abstract

Trimeresurus flavoviridis venom gland phospholipase A2(PLA2) genes pgPLA la and pgPLA 2a encode Asp-49-PLA2and genes pgPLA lb and pgPLA 2b encode an isozyme of Asp-49-PLA2. Polymorphisms were found in pairs of pgPLA la and pgPLA 2a and of pgPLA lb and pgPLA 2b for individuals of T. flavoviridis. The occurrence of both homozygotes and heterozygotes was demonstrated.
