Guys Need Help For our project. What are the components of the snake plant to prevent rabies? :?:
We need your help urgently because our science fair is fast approaching. We haven't conducted yet any experiment because we couldn't find any literature that supports our project. Please help us.....

The title of this project; or our project is Snake Plant Extract: Anti- Venum Agent.
Can you help us in identifying the components of snake plant?

Hi,

Your question poses a bit of a challenge, as it neither specifies the plant nor the snake in question. I hope these papers help a little:

You also seem to be looking for anti rabies activity in plants. I am unaware of any naturally occurring plant with this activity, although I did find a patent describing the synthesis of rabies vaccine proteins in transgenic tobacco plants:

I hope this helps your problem a little. Best of luck on your project!
