Sponge gourd (Luffa cylindricd) seeds contain several biologically active proteins. Recently, we found that the mature seeds contain three types of trypsin inhibitors having molecular masses of about 13 kDa (type I), 6.5 kDa (type II), and 3.2 kDa (type III). Furthermore, preliminary experiments suggested that the type III one might be a domain unit of(More)
Placental UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) enzymes have critical roles in hormone, nutrient, chemical balance and fetal exposure during pregnancy. Placental UGT1A isoforms were profiled and differences between preeclamptic (PE) and non-PE placental UGT expression determined. In third trimester villous placenta, UGT1A1, 1A4, 1A6 and 1A9 were expressed and(More)
