As the name implies, the Amrita Venomics lab is interested in understanding how snake venom exerts its physiological effects, both in terms of the toxic as well as the pharmacological action of the individual venom components. To that end we fractionate venom by chromatographic methods and the resulting fractions are subject to various biochemical assays to detect the presence of particular venom components, according to their enzymatic or biological activities. Once a certain degree of separation and purity has been achieved for a component, it becomes a target for the development of inhibitory or neutralizing agents. Should the component turn out to be novel, its biological activity will be characterized in more depth and the pharmacological potential will be assessed.
