(a.) Rough; rugged; harsh; bitter; stern; fierce.
(n.) The rough breathing; a mark (/) placed over an initial vowel sound or over / to show that it is aspirated, that is, pronounced with h before it; thus "ws, pronounced h/s, "rh`twr, pronounced hra"t/r.

(1) The presence of proteins antigenically related to Bothrops asper myotoxins in various snake venoms, mainly from South America, was investigated by using polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies.
(2) The myotoxin shows partial immunologic identity with a myotoxic phospholipase A2 isolated from Bothrops asper venom.
(3) Mice that received antivenom (0.4 ml) by the iv or im route 15 min after im injection of B. asper venom (100 micrograms) had lower levels of plasma anti-myotoxin antibodies than controls injected with antivenom only, suggesting that at least a fraction of the antibodies combines with myotoxins in vivo.
(4) Metalloproteinase from the venom of Bothrops asper (proteinase G) is a glycoprotein with 1% neutral hexose and 3.5 moles of sialic acid per mole of protein.
(5) A new instrumentation for posterior spinal surgery consists of metallic rods carved with diamond-shaped asperities on which vertebral hooks or screws can be screwed in any position, level, or degree of rotation.
(6) Conditions that inhibited phospholipase A2 activity, i.e., substitution of calcium by EDTA, reduced liposome-disrupting activity of Bothrops asper myotoxin I and Bothrops atrox myotoxin, both of which have high phospholipase A2 activity, but did not affect the action of B. asper myotoxin II and Bothrops moojeni myotoxin II, which have extremely low phospholipase A2 activity.
(7) The time-course and composition of inflammatory infiltrate in mouse gastrocnemius injected with Bothrops asper venom was studied.
(8) Also, the organization of these asperities is directly related to cellular cytoskeletal elements.
