Transcriptomic Characterization of the South American Freshwater Stingray Venom Apparatus.

Toxins (Basel) 2018 Dec 18;10(12). Epub 2018 Dec 18.

CIIMAR/CIMAR, Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine and Environmental Research, University of Porto, Av. General Norton de Matos, s/n, 4450-208 Porto, Portugal.

Venomous animals are found through a wide taxonomic range including cartilaginous fish such as the freshwater stingray occurring in South America, which can injure people and cause venom-related symptoms. Ensuring the efficacy of drug development to treat stingray injuries can be assisted by the knowledge of the venom composition. Here we performed a detailed transcriptomic characterization of the venom gland of the South American freshwater stingray . Read More

Laboratório Especial de Dor e Sinalização, Instituto Butantan, São Paulo, SP, Brazil. Electronic address:

Freshwater stingray accidents cause an immediate, intense, and unrelieved pain which is followed by edema, erythema and necrosis formation. Treatment for stingray envenomation is based on administration of analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory drugs. Concerning pain control, it is prescribed to immerse punctured limb on hot water to alleviate pain. Read More

Morphological characterization of the venom secretory epidermal cells in the stinger of marine and freshwater stingrays.

Toxicon 2007 Oct 23;50(5):688-97. Epub 2007 Jun 23.

Laboratório de Biologia Celular, Instituto Butantan, São Paulo, Brazil.

Marine and freshwater stingrays are characterized by the presence of one to three mineralized serrated stingers on the tail, which are covered by epidermal cells secreting venom. When these animals are dorsally touched, the stinger can be introduced into the aggressor by a whip reflex mechanism of the tail, causing severe mechanical injuries and inoculating the venom. Accidents in humans are frequent causing intense local pain, oedema and erythema. Read More

Division of Medical Toxicology, Department of Emergency Medicine, University of California, San Diego Medical Center, San Diego, California, USA.

Stingray stings are common along coastal regions of this country and the world. The tail of the stingray contains a barbed stinger attached to a venom gland and contained within an integumentary sheath. During a sting, the stinger and sheath can become embedded in the soft tissue of the victim, and venom is injected into the wound. Read More

Freshwater stingrays of the Potamotrygon genus are regarded by native people in the Amazonia as dangerous fishes responsible of frequent stings. Small freshwater stingrays are imported to Europe and sold as aquarium fish because they are easy to keep captive. The purpose of this report is to describe two new cases involving envenomation by freshwater stingray. Read More
