BACKGROUND The accumulation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) has a key role in the pathophysiology of diabetes complications. Comparison of AGEs measurement in serum, skin, saliva and urine has not been reported. AIMS To compare AGEs in serum, skin, saliva and urine in patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus, with complications at different(More)
The use of an internal standard is proposed in this work for first derivative spectrophotometric determination of azinphos in formulations. Generally, the spectrophotometric procedure is simpler and less expensive than chromatographic techniques recommended for the analysis of pesticides. However, while determining the pesticide in commercial formulations(More)
The ChrA membrane protein belongs to the CHR superfamily of chromate ion transporters, which includes homologues from bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes. Bacterial ChrA homologues confer chromate resistance by exporting chromate ions from the cell’s cytoplasm. The Neurospora crassa strain 74-A chr-1 gene encodes a putative CHR-1 protein of 507 amino acid(More)
We studied the factors associated with perceived psychosocial stress in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2. A cross-sectional study was carried out in 105 patients (27 men and 78 women) with a mean age of 51.6 (50.2-52.5, 95% CI) years and 8.6 (7.3-9.8, 95% CI) years since diagnosis. The patients were overweight with body mass index (BMI) of 27.6, and(More)
Living organisms are exposed in nature to heavy metals, commonly present in their ionized species. These ions exert diverse toxic effects on microorganisms. Metal exposure both selects and maintains microbial variants able to tolerate their harmful effects. Varied and efficient metal resistance mechanisms have been identified in diverse species of bacteria,(More)
The objective of this study was to examine epinephrine and norepinephrine plasma levels in patients with clinical type 2 diabetes mellitus, at different stages of autonomic neuropathy. Eighteen patients were classified in groups without (n = 6) and with early (n = 6), definite (n = 3) and severe (n = 3) neuropathy. Blood catecholamine levels were measured(More)
