Table 1 The Protobothrops elegans and P. flavoviridis transcriptomes are overwhelmingly dominated by PLA2s; however, the major PLA2s in each are pharmacologically very different. P. flavoviridis venom appears to be much more anti-coagulant, with coagulation Factor IX/X-binding proteins, and higher percentages of serine proteases, LAO, C-type lectins, 5′-nucleotidase, and phosphodiesterase [14]

From: Snake venoms are integrated systems, but abundant venom proteins evolve more rapidly
