Zinc has antioxidative properties and plays an important role in scavenging reactive oxygen species. We hypothesized that in the absence of Zn, the possibility of increased oxidative damage exists that would contribute to poor sperm quality. Therefore, measurement of seminal Zn in the seminal plasma of males with a history of subfertility or idiopathic(More)
The first cDNA from lampyridae encoding a glow-worm luciferase from lantern mRNA of Lampyris turkestanicus has been cloned, sequenced, the amino acid sequence predicted, and the sequence reported to GenBank. The cDNA was 1644 base pairs in length and coding a 547-residue protein. The deduced amino acid sequence of the luciferase gene of L. turkestanicus(More)
OBJECTIVES Eriobotrya japonica belongs to the Rosaceae. Studies have shown that the flowers of this plant are rich in phenolic and flavonoid compounds. Accorrdingly, the evaluation of antioxidative effects of Eriobotrya japonica Flower Extract (EJFE) have been performed in vitro. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this study, to investigate the influences of(More)
The cDNA of a firefly luciferase from lantern mRNA of Lampyroidea maculata has been cloned, sequenced and functionally expressed. The cDNA has an open reading frame of 1647 bp and codes for a 548-residue-long polypeptide. Noteworthy, sequence comparison as well as homology modeling showed the highest degree of similarity with H. unmunsana and L. mingrelica(More)
Our objective was to determine the effect of fatty acids (FAs) in serum and follicular fluid (FF) on fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) outcomes. One hundred five women aged 18–38 years undergoing ICSI were recruited in this prospective cohort study. oocyte and emberyo quality was morphologically assessed. FAs in serum and FF were(More)
Oscillating chemical reactions are complex systems, involving a large number of chemical species. In oscillating chemical reaction, some species, usually a reaction intermediate, exhibit fluctuation in its concentration. In this report, visible oscillating chemiluminescence produced by the addition of luminol (3-aminophthalhydrazide) to the oscillating(More)
The chemiluminescence arising from the reaction of bis(2,4,6-trichlorophenyl)oxalate (TCPO) with hydrogen peroxide in the presence of acriflavine has been studied. The relationship between the chemiluminescence intensity and concentrations of TCPO, H2O2, acriflavine and the base sodium salicylate are reported. The kinetic parameters for the(More)
A novel chemiluminescence (CL) reaction, Benzodiazepines-H2O2-1-Ethyl-3-Methylimidazolium Ethylsulfate/copper, for determination of clonazepam and diazepam at nanogram per milliliter level in batch-type system have been described. The method relies on the catalytic effect of 1-Ethyl-3-Methylimidazolium Ethylsulfate/copper on the chemiluminescence reaction(More)
A novel glucose biosensor based on the chemiluminescence (CL) detection of enzymatically generated H(2)O(2) was constructed by the effective immobilization of glucose oxidase (GOD)/carbon-nanotubes (CNTs)/gold nanoparticles (GNPs) in nafion film on graphite support. The influences of various experimental parameters such as solution pH, the action time of(More)
Quinoxaline derivatives are a great interest as fluorescent emitters for peroxyoxalate chemiluminescence. Reaction of peroxyoxalates such as bis-(2,4,6-trichlorophenyl) oxalate with H2O2 can transfer energy to fluorophore via formation of dioxetanedione intermediate. Two quinoxaline derivatives used as a fluorophore in this study which produce a green light(More)
