Currently, breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in women. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop alternative therapeutic measures against this deadly disease. Here, we report the cytotoxicity activity and the mechanism of cell death exhibited by the methanol extract prepared from Pereskia bleo (Kunth) DC. (Cactaceae) plant(More)
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), are biodegradable polyesters derived from many microorganisms such as the pseudomonads. These polyesters are in great demand especially in the packaging industries, the medical line as well as the paint industries. The enzyme responsible in catalyzing the formation of PHA is PHA synthase. Due to the limited structural(More)
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha) is a ligand-activated transcriptional factor that governs many biological processes, including lipid metabolism, inflammation, and atherosclerosis. We demonstrate here the existence of six variants and multiple transcriptional start sites of the 5(') untranslated region (UTR) of hPPARalpha gene,(More)
BACKGROUND Moringa oleifera belongs to plant family, Moringaceae and popularly called "wonderful tree", for it is used traditionally to cure many diseases including cancer in Africa and Asia, however, there is limited knowledge on cytotoxic activity of Moringa oleifera seeds on MCF7 breast cancer cell. The present study evaluated antiproliferative effect on(More)
Introduction Human growth hormone (hGH) is secreted from the anterior pituitary gland and exerts a wide variety of functions such as, IGF-1 production, protein synthesis, glucose metabolism, lipolysis, lipogenesis, and cell proliferation/differentiation (Isaksson et al., 1985; Press, 1988; Thorner and Vance, 1988; Strobl and Thomas, 1994). Moreover,(More)
UNLABELLED Recombinant protein production is a significant biotechnological process as it allows researchers to produce a specific protein in desired quantities. Escherichia coli (E. coli) is the most popular heterologous expression host for the production of recombinant proteins due to its advantages such as low cost, high-productivity, well-characterized(More)
