Liprin α3 was reported for the first time using sperm proteomics. Present study reports its localization on sperm and immunochemical characterization. Liprin α3 is identified as a 133 kDa protein in testis and epididymal protein extracts. In testis, immunohistochemical localization was seen in pachytenes, diplotenes, round spermatids whereas it was(More)
Gloriosa superba L. (Liliaceae) seeds, known as "kalihari" (Hindi), were phytochemically investigated for colchicine (well known for gout treatment) and other related alkaloid content. Colchicine, 2- demethylcolchicine, 3-demethylcolchicine, and N-formyl-N-deacetylcolchicine were alkaloids isolated from the seeds. The isolated samples have been standardized(More)
We have studied platelet aggregation and membrane fluidity, along with various biochemical parameters, in 19 non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) patients prior to control of blood sugar, 11 patients after control of blood sugar, and 26 normal subjects. Platelet cholesterol: phospholipid ratio and basal levels of)[Ca+] were comparable between(More)
Peripheral blood leucocytes from chronic myeloid leukaemia patients in remission were tested for inhibition of migration in presence of solubilized membrane antigens from leukaemic cells in 15 cases. Eight out of 9 autochthonous combinations (88-8%) and 35/49 allogenic combinations (71-4%) showed inhibition of migration. Antigens prepared from relapse(More)
A differential proteomics approach led to the identification of several novel epididymal sperm proteins. One of the novel proteins was methylmalonate-semialdehyde dehydrogenase (MMSDH). In the present study, we carried out an in-depth characterization to study its regulation by androgen, its appearance during ontogeny, and the mechanism of its(More)
