We have analyzed the functional domain structure of rat mammary glucosidase I, an enzyme involved in N-linked glycoprotein processing, using biochemical and immunological approaches. The enzyme contains a high mannose type sugar chain that can be cleaved by endo-beta-N-acetyl-D-glucosaminidase H without significantly affecting the catalytic activity. Based(More)
Glucosidase I involved in the processing of N-linked glycoproteins was purified to homogeneity from the lactating rat mammary gland. The purified enzyme exhibited a single band at 85 kDa on 10% sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis under reducing conditions. Polyclonal antibodies raised against the enzyme recognized a similar band on(More)
AIM The aim of the current cross-sectional study was to assess oral mucosal lesions among psychiatric jail patients residing in central jail, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study subjects consisted of prediagnosed psychiatric patients residing in central jail, Bhopal. A matched control consisting of cross section of the(More)
The levels of corticosterone were estimated by the HPLC method in the adrenal glands of stressed (5 h constant swimming) male albino mice treated with Trichopus zeylanicus, Withania somnifera and Panax ginseng preparations and compared with non-treated stressed and normal controls. The treatments increased the corticosterone levels in all the groups. The(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of 30% ethenolic extract of Indian propolis compared with Recaldent(™) (casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate) in reduction of dentinals hypersensitivity, a randomized, double-blind, split mouth, controlled clinical trial was conducted among the patients residing in Central Jail.

The GlcNAc-1-P-transferase that initiates the dolichol cycle for the biosynthesis of asparagine-linked glycoproteins has been purified from the lactating bovine mammary gland. After solubilization from microsomes with 0.25% Nonidet P-40, the enzyme activity was stabilized with 20% glycerol, 20 micrograms/ml phosphatidylglycerol, 5 microM dolichol phosphate,(More)
Blood levels of HIV DNA in our vertically infected pediatric patients typically followed a characteristic age-related pattern: continuously increasing with increasing age to a peak between ages 4 and 8 months, and thereafter rather steadily declining. Median HIV DNA levels peaked about 3 months earlier in children who by age 24 months developed more severe(More)
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methodology was used to detect Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from children and adults whose HIV status (i.e., infected or uninfected) is known. Initial EBV infections especially occurred in children between the ages of 7 and 24 months. EBV-positive children with vertically acquired(More)
AIM To assess the periodontal status among eunuchs residing in Bhopal city, Madhya Pradesh, India. MATERIALS AND METHODS Based on convenient non-probability snow ball sampling technique, all the self-identifi ed eunuchs residing in the city of Bhopal along with a matched control consisting of cross section of the general population residing in the same(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical utility of a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method for detecting human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in infants 2 months of age or younger who were born to HIV-positive mothers. DESIGN Prospective, longitudinal study lasting 3 years. The PCR tests were performed with coded peripheral blood mononuclear cell(More)
