Purification from black widow spider venom of a protein factor causing the depletion of synaptic vesicles at neuromuscular junctions. (1/36)

The aqueous extract of the venom glands of black widow spiders was fractionated on a column of Sephadex G-200 and then on a column of DEAE-Sephadex A-50 pH 8.2. A protein fraction was obtained that caused a great increase in the frequency of occurrence of miniature end plate potentials at the frog neuromuscular junction, and caused swelling of the nerve terminals and depleted them of their vesicles. The fraction consists of a least four protein components that are similar in their molecular weights (about 130,000) and isoelectric points (ranging from pH 5.2 to 5.5) and are immunologically indistinguishable. It contains no sugar residues and has little or no lipolytic or proteolytic activity. The fraction is toxic to mice and is different from the fractions that act on houseflies, the crayfish stretch receptor and the cockroach heart. It seems pure enough to warrant a detailed study of its site and mode of action.  (+info)

Black widow bites in children. (2/36)

While seldom lethal, the bite of the black widow spider causes serious systemic symptoms that appear suddenly and progress rapidly. Children are more vulnerable to these complications; therefore, early hospitalization and aggressive therapy must be considered. General information about the widow spider genus is presented, and an illustrative case and treatment options are discussed.  (+info)

Latrodectus bites in northern Dalmatia, Croatia: clinical, laboratory, epidemiological, and therapeutical aspects. (3/36)

AIM: To analyze clinical and epidemiological characteristics of the black widow spider (Latrodectus tredecimguttatus) bites and asses the impact of antitoxin administration after the bite on the intensity and duration of pain. METHOD: Retrospective analysis of clinical appearance, laboratory findings, and clinical assessment of the antitoxin administration efficacy in 32 patients with latrodectism treated at Zadar General Hospital between 1992 and 2002. RESULTS: All patients presented with generalized pain, profound perspiration, and burning in the sole of the foot. Laboratory findings revealed moderately increased serum glucose concentrations in half of the patients, concentrations of aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase 2 to 3 times higher than normal in 8 of 32 patients, moderate leukocytosis in 16 of 32 patients, mature neutrophilia in 15 of 32 patients, and immature forms of leukocytes in 4 of 32 patients. In 21 patients who received the antitoxin, severe pain lasted 1-4 h (median, 1.2 h) after the antitoxin administration, moderate pain 1-5 h (median, 2.4 h), and hospitalization 1-5 days (median, 4 days). In patients who did not receive antitoxin, there was a statistically significant increase in duration of severe pain (median, 50 h; range, 24-72 h), moderate pain (median, 36 h; range, 24-48 h), and hospitalization (median, 6 days; range, 4-12 days) (p<0.05 for all, Kruskal-Wallis H test). Men were more often bitten by the venomous spider (20 men vs 12 women); adults more often than children (30 vs 2, respectively), domestic population more often than tourists (30 vs 2, respectively), and rural mainland inhabitants more often than islanders (21 vs 11, respectively). All biting incidents occurred between June and September, most often in July (17 patients). CONCLUSION: Latrodectism in Northern Dalmatia presents with severe clinical symptoms. Administration of the antitoxin is advisable in the treatment of all afflicted patients.  (+info)

Mutant alpha-latrotoxin (LTXN4C) does not form pores and causes secretion by receptor stimulation: this action does not require neurexins. (4/36)

Alpha-latrotoxin (LTX) causes massive release of neurotransmitters via a complex mechanism involving (i) activation of receptor(s) and (ii) toxin insertion into the plasma membrane with (iii) subsequent pore formation. Using cryo-electron microscopy, electrophysiological and biochemical methods, we demonstrate here that the recently described toxin mutant (LTXN4C) is unable to insert into membranes and form pores due to its inability to assemble into tetramers. However, this mutant still binds to major LTX receptors (latrophilin and neurexin) and causes strong transmitter exocytosis in synaptosomes, hippocampal slice cultures, neuromuscular junctions, and chromaffin cells. In the absence of mutant incorporation into the membrane, receptor activation must be the only mechanism by which LTXN4C triggers exocytosis. An interesting feature of this receptor-mediated transmitter release is its dependence on extracellular Ca2+. Because Ca2+ is also strictly required for LTX interaction with neurexin, the latter might be the only receptor mediating the LTXN4C action. To test this hypothesis, we used conditions (substitution of Ca2+ in the medium with Sr2+) under which LTXN4C does not bind to any member of the neurexin family but still interacts with latrophilin. We show that, in all the systems tested, Sr2+ fully replaces Ca2+ in supporting the stimulatory effect of LTXN4C. These results indicate that LTXN4C can cause neurotransmitter release just by stimulating a receptor and that neurexins are not critical for this receptor-mediated action.  (+info)

Egg case protein-1. A new class of silk proteins with fibroin-like properties from the spider Latrodectus hesperus. (5/36)

Spiders produce multiple types of silk that exhibit diverse mechanical properties and biological functions. Most molecular studies of spider silk have focused on fibroins from dragline silk and capture silk, two important silk types involved in the survival of the spider. In our studies we have focused on the characterization of egg case silk, a third silk fiber produced by the black widow spider, Latrodectus hesperus. Analysis of the physical structure of egg case silk using scanning electron microscopy demonstrates the presence of small and large diameter fibers. By using the strong protein denaturant 8 M guanidine hydrochloride to solubilize the fibers, we demonstrated by SDS-PAGE and protein silver staining that an abundant component of egg case silk is a 100-kDa protein doublet. Combining matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization tandem time-of-flight mass spectrometry and reverse genetics, we have isolated a novel gene called ecp-1, which encodes for one of the protein components of the 100-kDa species. BLAST searches of the NCBInr protein data base using the primary sequence of ECP-1 revealed similarity to fibroins from spiders and silkworms, which mapped to two distinct regions within the ECP-1. These regions contained the conserved repetitive fibroin motifs poly(Ala) and poly(Gly-Ala), but surprisingly, no larger ensemble repeats could be identified within the primary sequence of ECP-1. Consistent with silk gland-restricted patterns of expression for fibroins, ECP-1 was demonstrated to be predominantly produced in the tubuliform gland, with lower levels detected in the major and minor ampullate glands. ECP-1 monomeric units were also shown to assemble into higher aggregate structures through the formation of disulfide bonds via a unique cysteine-rich N-terminal region. Collectively, our findings provide new insight into the components of egg case silk and identify a new class of silk proteins with distinctive molecular features relative to traditional members of the spider silk gene family.  (+info)

Quasistatic and continuous dynamic characterization of the mechanical properties of silk from the cobweb of the black widow spider Latrodectus hesperus. (6/36)

Spider silks are among the strongest and toughest known materials, but investigation of these remarkable properties has been confined largely to orb-weaving spiders. We investigated the mechanical performance of silk from the cobweb-weaving spider Latrodectus hesperus. Both silk from the scaffolding region of the web and sticky gumfooted capture lines had material properties similar to the major ampullate silk that orb weavers use as the framework for their orb webs. Major ampullate fibers obtained from anaesthetized Latrodectus spiders were similar, but exhibited increased stiffness and reduced extensibility. Novel continuous dynamic analysis of the silks revealed that the loss tangent (tandelta) increased rapidly during the first 2-3% of extension and reached a maximum near the yield point of fibers. The loss tangent then rapidly declined at an ever-decreasing rate until failure. We suggest that these data support molecular models for the mechanics of spider silk. We also demonstrate that the addition of sticky aggregate glue to the ends of the gumfooted lines modulates their mechanical performance--reducing stiffness and increasing extensibility. The storage modulus of viscid regions of the gumfooted lines was much lower than dry regions. This may be explained by disruption of hydrogen bonding within the amorphous regions of the fibers due to hydration from the glue.  (+info)

Vitamin B1 thiazole derivative reduces transmembrane current through ionic channels formed by toxins from black widow spider venom and sea anemone in planar phospholipid membranes. (7/36)

The vitamin B1 (thiamine) structural analogue 3-decyloxycarbonylmethyl-4-methyl-5-(beta-hydroxyethyl) thiazole chloride (DMHT) (0.1 mM) reversibly reduced transmembrane currents in CaCl2 and KCl solutions via ionic channels produced by latrotoxins (alpha-latrotoxin (alpha-LT) and alpha-latroinsectotoxin (alpha-LIT)) from black widow spider venom and sea anemone toxin (RTX) in the bilayer lipid membranes (BLMs). Introduction of DMHT from the cis-side of BLM bathed in 10 mM CaCl2 inhibited transmembrane current by 31.6+/-3% and by 61.8+/-3% from the trans-side of BLM for alpha-LT channels. Application of DMHT in the solution of 10 mM CaCl2 to the cis-side of BLM decreased the current through the alpha-LIT and RTX channels by 52+/-4% and 50+/-5%, respectively. Addition of Cd2+ (1 mM) to the cis- or trans-side of the membrane after the DMHT-induced depression of Ca2+-current across the alpha-LT channels caused its further decrease by 85+/-5% that coincides favorably with the intensity of Cd2+ blocking in control experiments without DMHT. These data suggest that DMHT inhibiting is not specific for latrotoxin channels only and DMHT may exert its action on alpha-LT channels without considerable influence on the ionogenic groups of Ca2+-selective site inside the channel cavity. The binding kinetics of DMHT with the alpha-LT channel shows no cooperativity and allows to expect that the DMHT binding site of the toxin is formed by one ionogenic group as the slopes of inhibition rate determined in log-log coordinates are 1.25 on the trans-side and 0.68 on the cis-side. Similar pK of binding (5.4 on the trans-side and 5.7 on the cis-side) also suggest that DMHT may interact with the same high affinity site of alpha-LT channel on either side of the BLM. The comparative analysis of effective radii measured for alpha-LT, alpha-LIT and RTX channels on the cis-side (0.9 nm, 0.53 nm and 0.55 nm, correspondingly) and for alpha-LT channel on the trans-side (0.28+/-0.18 nm) with the intensity of DMHT inhibitory action obtained on these channels allowed to conclude that the potency of DMHT inhibition increased on toxin pores of smaller lumen.  (+info)

Insecticidal toxins from black widow spider venom. (8/36)

The biological effects of Latrodectus spider venom are similar in animals from different phyla, but these symptoms are caused by distinct phylum-specific neurotoxins (collectively called latrotoxins) with molecular masses ranging from 110 to 140 kDa. To date, the venom has been found to contain five insecticidal toxins, termed alpha, beta, gamma, delta and epsilon-latroinsectotoxins (LITs). There is also a vertebrate-specific neurotoxin, alpha-latrotoxin (alpha-LTX), and one toxin affecting crustaceans, alpha-latrocrustatoxin (alpha-LCT). These toxins stimulate massive release of neurotransmitters from nerve terminals and act (1) by binding to specific receptors, some of which mediate an exocytotic signal, and (2) by inserting themselves into the membrane and forming ion-permeable pores. Specific receptors for LITs have yet to be identified, but all three classes of vertebrate receptors known to bind alpha-LTX are also present in insects. All LTXs whose structures have been elucidated (alpha-LIT, delta-LIT, alpha-LTX and alpha-LCT) are highly homologous and have a similar domain architecture, which consists of a unique N-terminal sequence and a large domain composed of 13-22 ankyrin repeats. Three-dimensional (3D) structure analysis, so far done for alpha-LTX only, has revealed its dimeric nature and an ability to form symmetrical tetramers, a feature probably common to all LTXs. Only tetramers have been observed to insert into membranes and form pores. A preliminary 3D reconstruction of a delta-LIT monomer demonstrates the spatial similarity of this toxin to the monomer of alpha-LTX.  (+info)

Latrodectism is the illness caused by the bite of Latrodectus spiders (the black widow spider and related species). Pain, muscle rigidity, vomiting, and sweating are the symptoms of latrodectism. Contrary to popular conception, latrodectism is very rarely fatal to people though domestic cats have been known to die with convulsion and paralysis. There are several spider species all named black widow: southern black widow spider (L. mactans), the European black widow (L. tredecimguttatus), Western black widow spider (L. hesperus), Northern black widow spider (L. variolus). Other Latrodectus that cause latrodectism are the Australian redback spider (L. hasselti), and the New Zealand katipo spider (L. katipo). Several other members of Latrodectus genus are not commonly associated with latrodectism including the cosmopolitan brown widow (L. geometricus). A bite of Latrodectus may not inject any venom (known as a dry bite) and so no illness occurs. About 75% of "wet" bites will have localized pain and ...

The black widow spider is notoriously known to many since childhood. The males are harmless and generally smaller than the females. Males do not carry the red hour-glass shape alerting folks of the danger venomous female black widow spiders possess. Generally, black widow spiders are not aggressive, and will only bite if they have no escape and feel threatened. Not only do the females carry the distinctive red or sometimes yellow or orange hourglass shape, but they appear to be a shiny black color. The females abdomen is also rounder than the males. The black widow generally constructs her sleek and durable web, which typically measures a foot wide, in dark garages, old sheds and other structures, or other undisturbed places. If they should stick to the outdoors, you can find her nestling in abandoned animal burrows, in stumps, or behind or within woodpiles. If you are bitten by a black widow you can expect excruciating pain, swelling, redness, abdominal discomfort, headaches and sweating. ...

The effects of the venoms of the spiders Latrodectus mactans tredecimguttatus (black widow) and Latrodectus mactans hasselti (red back) on sensory nerve terminals in muscle spindles were studied in the mouse. A sublethal dose of venom was injected into tibialis anterior and extensor digitorum longus muscles of one leg. After survival from 30 minutes to 6 weeks muscles were examined in serial paraffin sections impregnated with silver or by electron microscopy. Sensory endings became swollen, some within 30 minutes, while over the next few hours there was progressive degeneration of annulospiral endings. By 24 hours every spindle identified by light or electron microscopy was devoid of sensory terminals. Degenerated nerve endings were taken up into the sarcoplasm of intrafusal muscle fibres.

Widow spiders belong to the genus Latrodectus and include the black widow spider (Latrodectus mactans mactans) in the United States. The term widow spider is used because not all species in the genus Latrodectus are black.
The eggs of black widow spider (L. tredecimguttatus) have been demonstrated to be rich in toxic proteinaceous components. The study on such active components is of theoretical and practical importance. In the present work, using a combination of multiple biochemical and biological strategies, we isolated and characterized the proteinaceous components from the aqueous extract of the black widow spider eggs. After gel filtration of the egg extract, the resulting main protein and peptide peaks were further fractionated by ion exchange chromatography and reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography. Two proteinaceous components, named latroeggtoxin-III and latroeggtoxin-IV, respectively, were purified to homogeneity. Latroeggtoxin-III was demonstrated to have a molecular weight of about 36 kDa. Activity analysis indicated that latroeggtoxin-III exhibited neurotoxicity against cockroaches but had no obvious effect on mice, suggesting that it is an insect-specific toxin. Latroeggtoxin-IV, with a

Latrodectus spp. or black widow spiders are globose black spiders with an hour-glass red-orange abdominal pattern. They are widely distributed in the US. Single bites are potentially fatal especially to sensitive species such as cats. Clinical signs include progressive muscle fasiciculations, severe pain, muscle cramping, abdominal rigidity without tenderness, restlessness, hypertension, bronchorrhea, regional numbness and hypersalivation. The venom of black widow spiders contains several biologically active proteins one of which, a-latrotoxin, induces neurotransmitter release from nerve terminals. Acetylcholine, noradrenaline, dopamine, glutamate and enkephalin systems are all affected. There are no confirmatory tests that are available. One clue in cats: they may vomit up the spider. Early identification of bites is difficult unless the bite is actually witnessed. Treatment includes the administration of a specific antivenin (Lyovac , equine origin from Merck) by slow i.v. infusion. Allergic ...

Black widows are overall shy, nocturnal, and only bite when their web is disturbed. The female black widow is generally considered poisonous to humans. The male black widow spider, with its smaller jaw and minimal venom, is not significantly poisonous to humans. These spiders use striated muscles to control the amount of venom they inject, and about 15% of bites do not deliver venom.4 The venoms toxicity is due to the presence of α-latrotoxin. This toxin facilitates exocytosis of synaptic vesicles and the release of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine, γ-aminobutyric acid, and acetylcholine.5 The toxin also causes degeneration of motor end plates, resulting in denervation. The venom destabilizes nerve cell membranes by opening ion channels, causing a massive influx of calcium into the cell, which may lead to hypocalcemia. ...

There are many species of spiders (as well as their cousins the scorpions) which do this, Black Widows are just infamous for it. In some species, over 80% of all couplings end with the males being devoured. This usually happens in species where the male is smaller than the female, so it might be that the female simply views the male as a handy snack.. ...

Is there an effective pest control for black widows? The regular Raid stuff cant kill them. This year they are bigger, with a lot more poison in their tummies.

When individual stars form from molecular clouds of gas and dust they produce intense radiation and very strong particle winds. Both the radiation and the stellar winds blow the dust outward from the star creating a cavity or, bubble. In the case of the Black Widow Nebula, astronomers suspect that a large cloud of gas and dust condensed to create multiple clusters of massive star formation. The combined winds from these large stars probably blew out bubbles into the direction of least resistance, forming a double-bubble ...

Everyone needs adjustment to get along or survive ones social and physical environment. The widows in this part of the world need it more than anyone due to the hardship culture has placed on them. The study examined the psychological and social support being rendered to the widows for adjustment. One hundred and twenty widows were randomly selected within the randomly selected local government areas in Ibadan. Psychosocial Support for Widows Adjustment Questionnaire (PSSWAQ), self-structured, with the validity α=0.74 was administered on 120 widows in six local government areas of Oyo state. Two hypotheses were postulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance, Data were analyzed using Pearson Product Moment Correlation and t-test. The study revealed that there is a relationship between psychosocial support given widows and adjustment to life. Secondly, the age of the widows did not affect their adjustment with psychosocial support. It was found that psychosocial support can modify the behaviour of
A widows walk also known as a "widows watch" (or roofwalk) is a railed rooftop platform often with a small enclosed cupola frequently found on 19th-century North American coastal houses. The name is said to come from the wives of mariners, who would watch for their spouses return, often in vain as the ocean took the lives of the mariners, leaving the women widows.[1] In other coastal communities, the platforms were called Captains Walk, as they topped the homes of the more successful captains; supposedly, ship owners and captains would use them to search the horizon for ships due in port.. However, there is little or no evidence that widows walks were intended or regularly used to observe shipping. Widows walks are in fact a standard decorative feature of Italianate architecture, which was very popular during the height of the Age of Sail in many North American coastal communities. The widows walk is a variation of the Italianate cupola.[2] The Italianate cupola, also known as a ...

I do have one funny story of something that happened during the concert. I happened to see some sort of strange movement on the shoulder of the guy sitting two rows in front of me (the rows in between us were empty). I focused on his shoulder and saw what I can best describe as an albino black widow spider whose body (not legs), was the size of the tip of my pinky. It was HUGE! Im not saying it was a black widow, it just looked like one. I watched the spider crawl across the guys shoulder thinking that any second he would feel it and flick it off. Nope. Once the spider began to crawl up the guys neck, I could sit still no longer. I got up and basically slapped the guy on the back of the neck as I swept the spider off of him. He turned around and looked at me as if he was ready to kick my ass; I cant say I blame him. My wife was thinking the same thing, as she had not seen the spider and was wondering why her husband had just whacked this strange man on the neck. Over the noise of the band, I ...

Curarized cutaneous pectoris nerve-muscle preparations from frogs were stimulated at 10/s or at 2/s for periods ranging from 20 min to 4 h. End plate potential were recorded intracellularly and used to estimate the quantity of transmitter secreted during the period of stimulation. At the ends of the periods of stimulation the preparations were either fixed for electron microscopy or treated with black widow spider venom to determine the quantities of transmitter remainind in the terminal. Horseradish peroxidase or dextran was added to the bathing solution and used as a tracer to detect the formation of vesicles from the axolemma. During 4 h of stimulation at 2/s many new vesicles were formed from the axolemma and the quantity of transmitter secreted was several times greater than the quantity in the initial store. After this period of stimulation, the terminals were severely depleted of transmitter, but not of vesicles, and their general morphological organization was normal. During 20 min of ...
A South African spider more poisonous than its cousin the black widow is spreading throughout the most southern part of California, authorities said.. The brown widow first was spotted in San Diego in 2004 and since has multiplied by the thousands, KTLA-TV reported Tuesday.. The brown widow recently was seen as far south as Imperial Beach, near the Mexican border, and as far north as Carlsbad in northern San Diego County. Brown widows are also being seen inland, rather than just in ocean communities where they first were spotted, authorities told KTLA.. The spiders venom is more potent than the black widow and can hospitalize people bitten just once. The brown widow multiples quickly, with each egg hatching as many as 35 baby spiders in 20 days, KTLA reported.. ...
People who have been bitten by a black widow spider are recommended to seek professional medical assistance for symptoms.[16] Symptoms self-resolve in hours to days in a majority of bites without medical intervention.. Medical treatments have varied over the years. Some treatments (e.g. calcium gluconate) have been discovered to be useless.[17] Currently, treatment usually involves symptomatic therapy with pain medication, muscle relaxants, and antivenom. When the pain becomes unbearable, antivenom is administered. Antivenom historically completely resolves pain in a short time.[4][18] Antivenom is made by injecting horses with latrodectus venom over a period of time. The horse develops antibodies against the venom. The horse is bled and the antibodies purified for later use. Doctors recommend the use of anti-inflammatory medications before antivenom administration, because antivenom can induce allergic reactions to the horse proteins.[4] The efficacy of antivenom has come under scrutiny as ...
The time lag between the two widows in this Sundays readings was considerable. Lots of things change in 800 years. But one thing their two societies had in common-they offered neither social security, welfare, 401Ks, nor pension plans. With no husband to provide for them, both widows were literally at the mercy of those around them, totally dependent on the generosity of others.. When you put that together with severe famine, the picture that emerges is rather bleak indeed. So when Elijah meets up with the widow of Zarephath, she confides that she is about to prepare what she expects to be the last meal for herself and her son.. Yet this does not deter Elijah. He boldly asks that she bring food to him first, even before she takes care of her son. This fits neither our normal idea of generosity nor hospitality. Prevailing wisdom says to feed the guest after weve fed our kids. Pay the bills first, then give to the poor a portion of your bonus check or tax refund.. But the widow of Zarephath ...

The flu virus in an of itself does not cause death. Death is caused by what the flu virus does to the body.. Dr. Adalja says that "Dying from the flu is not like dying from a bullet or a black widow spider bite. The presence of the virus itself isnt going to be what kills you. An infectious disease always has a complex interaction with its host.". Kathleen Sullivan, Chief of the Division of Allergy and Immunology at The Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia, estimates that "about one-third of people who die from flu-related causes expire because the virus overwhelms the immune system. Another third die from the immune response to secondary bacterial infections, usually in the lungs; and the remaining third perish due to the failure of one or more other organs. These findings are based on autopsy studies.". When the flu virus enters the body, usually through the eyes, nose or mouth, it begins hijacking human cells in the nose and throat and fools them into duplicating themselves. The immune ...
An extract of the venom glands of black widow spiders (BWGE) induces the release of acetylcholine (ACh) from the superior cervical ganglia of rats. The release of ACh follows first-order kinetics, which suggests that the venom either lowers the ganglionic store of ACh, or continually reduces the rate of release. Since ganglionic ACh did not decrease in the presence of BWGE, it is likely that the venom continually reduces the rate of release. The rate constant for BWGE-induced release of ACh is depressed about 45% by treatment of the ganglion with either botulinum toxin or a low Ca++/high Mg++Ringers solution. The rate constant is depressed about 30% by treatment of the ganglion with 8.3 microng/ml of cytochalasin-B. Since these agents inhibit the release of ACh which is elicited by electrical stimulation of the ganglion, it is suggested that one action of BWGE is the stimulation of some step in the physiological mechanism involved in the release of neurotransmitters. Treatment of the ganglion ...

I have been described as a Southern writer, and though I am proud to be associated with the South and the southern Appalachians and Blue Ridge Mountains, the real focus of my poetry and much of my fiction has been on one particular place, not even a county, just a community, part of the Green River valley in Western North Carolina. And really not even the whole community, but about a square mile of land on the banks of Green River bought by my great-great-grandfather Daniel Pace in 1840.. My connection with this piece of earth where I lived the first sixteen years of my life is so close that in a way I have never left it. As a child I ran in its pastures, fished in its streams, explored its thickets and gullies, sweated in its fields, climbed the trees and ridges, gathered its chinquapins and blackberries. I was terrified by rattlesnakes and black widow spiders, by flash floods and lightning storms. In the almost forty years since I left, I have continued to live there in the imagination, in the ...
Legally blind in his left eye, pitcher Jeff Seale was nonetheless selected by the New York Mets in the second round of the 1988 amateur draft. The 51st overall pick, he was the second pitcher taken by New York, after Dave Proctor. The three players taken immediately in front of him (Bob Hamelin, Chris Nabholz and Alan Newman) and the one taken right after (Dave Silvestri) all wound up in the majors. Seale did not sign and went to the University of Texas instead. He later transferred to San Jacinto College, where Andy Pettitte was a teammate, and also played one year at the University of Miami. He was taken in the 32nd round of the 1991 amateur draft by the the Cleveland Indians and went to work for his familys software company instead. Seale passed away in 2011 at the age of 40 after being bitten 19 times by a black widow spider ...

Like a Black Widow spider, infotainment sensation Megyn Kelly has advanced both her personal and career life sniffing out testosterone and then feeding off male prey. Prior to her meteoric rise to fame, Megyn was married to an anesthesiologist named David Kendall. Mr. Kendall said that on the day the couple married, the priest counseled Megyn on the importance of taking care of her husband. Megyn responded to the advice by asking, What about him taking care of his wife? The ambitious celebrity enhanced her résumé, transforming from a rookie news anchor into a self-impressed show boater with the same self-regard. Unlike the deadly arachnoid, Megyn doesnt need to physically mate with her prey to get what she needs before the poison flows, but she openly exploits her female sexuality.

After some considerable time, she was reinstated at S.H.I.E.L.D. and with the help of some rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and the Savage Land Mutates, began work on an illegal Vibranium mining project located in the Savage Land. Realizing that the reformation of the Avengers was a threat to the operation, Yelena hired Electro to cause a prison break at the superhuman maximum security prison called the Vault in order to cause a distraction and reunite Sauron with his Savage Land Mutates. As the Avengers investigated the breakout further, they decided to hunt down Sauron, leading them to the Savage Land. Upon arriving they were beat down by the mutates, who bound them and revealed their part of the Vibranium operation. Controlling his armor remotely, Iron Man managed to free the Avengers. In a short skirmish that followed, the Avengers proceeded to defeat all of the mutates except Sauron. As Sauron was about to tell them about his part in the operation, Yelena used a sniper rifle and shot him in the ...
