Three nitroxide spin-labeled monoderivatives of bovine pancreatic trypsin inhibitor were prepared with the amino-specific reagent succinimidyl 1-oxy-2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-3-pyrroline-3-carboxylate. The monoderivatives were purified by ion-exchange and affinity chromatography. Thin-layer maps of tryptic peptides of the monoderivatives showed that the(More)
It is a generally accepted principle of biology that a protein's primary sequence is the main determinant of its tertiary structure. However, the mechanism by which a protein proceeds from an unfolded, disordered state to a folded, relatively well-ordered, native conformation is obscure. Studies have been initiated to examine the "genetics" of protein(More)
Isolation and identification of some potent anti-tumor compounds from medicinal plants has motivated researchers to screen different parts of plant species for the determination of anti-tumor effects. In this study, cytotoxic effects and IC(50) of specific concentrations of hydro-alcoholic extracts of fruits of Juniperus sabina and leaves of Zataria(More)
Aortobronchial (AB) fistula is a rare disease, which is presented with massive hemoptysis; lethal if not treated. It should be suspected in any patient who presents with massive hemoptysis and had previous thoracic aortic surgery, but even it may be seen in patients without any history of operation on the thoracic aorta. Although, today in many centers(More)
We developed an immune function assay for monitoring CD4+ T cells activity based on changes in intracellular adenosine triphosphate (iATP) levels after phytohemagglutinin (PHA) stimulation. Blood samples were obtained from 40 healthy subjects and 30 RTRs and incubated with 5 µg/mL of PHA for 15-18 hr at 37°C and 5% CO2. Afterward, the CD4+ T cells were(More)
