Thiamine is an essential vitamin that is necessary to maintain the functional integrity of cells in the brain. Its deficiency is the underlying cause of Wernicke’s encephalopathy (WE), a disorder primarily associated with, but not limited to, chronic alcoholism. Thiamine deficiency leads to the development of impaired energy metabolism due to mitochondrial(More)
The transitional endoplasmic reticulum (tER) is composed of both rough and smooth ER membranes and thus participates in functions attributed to both these two subcellular compartments. In this paper we have compared the protein composition of tER isolated from dissected liver tumor nodules of aflatoxin B1-treated rats with that of tER from control liver.(More)
A full glycoprotein E (gE) deletion was generated in genome of the Egyptian BoHV-1.1 Abu-Hammad strain. Integrity of the gE negative (gE(-)) mutant virus was proved by successful specific PCR amplifications of gB, gC, tk, gD, gI and gE genes along with definite immune reaction to polyclonal anti-BoHV-1 antibody in infected cell culture. BoHV-1 gE(-) mutant(More)
Amyloidosis in lymph node that is FDG-avid is an unusual diagnosis. FDG PET/CT showed the presence of multifocal lymphadenopathy mainly axillary with a mesenteric mass. Surgical lymph node biopsy with histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of amyloidosis in a 64-year-old woman with an initial left axillary pain. Amyloidosis should be considered on(More)
A recombinant baculovirus construct expressing glycoprotein E (gE) of the Egyptian BoHV-1.1 Abu-Hammad strain (rBac/gE-AbuH) was generated and characterized. The recombinant gE (rgE) secreting protein in culture medium of infected insect cells was used as a coating antigen in an indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to test its utility for(More)
