OBJECTIVES To compare the plasma protein profiles of treated and untreated congenital hypothyroidism (CH) patients with those of normal control infants. DESIGN AND METHODS Plasma samples were subjected to two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and silver staining or lectin detection. Resolved protein spots were analyzed by using computerized densitometry(More)
Tamarindus indicaL. (T. indica) or locally known as asam jawa belongs to the family of Leguminosae. The fruit pulp had been reported to have antioxidant activities and possess hypolipidaemic effects. In this study, we attempted to investigate the gene expression patterns in human hepatoma HepG2 cell line in response to treatment with low concentration of(More)
We report a case of a Familial Hypercholesterolaemic (FH) patient (FH1) and her family members. They are Malaysian of Indian origin with evidence of consanguinity in the parents. We characterised the LDL receptor gene mutation in FH1, her brother (S1) and their mother, P2. The father (P1) died of coronary heart disease (CHD) in his early 40's. Our(More)
Basal stem rot is a common disease that affects oil palm, causing loss of yield and finally killing the trees. The disease, caused by fungus Ganoderma boninense, devastates thousands of hectares of oil palm plantings in Southeast Asia every year. In the present study, root proteins of healthy oil palm seedlings, and those infected with G. boninense, were(More)
OBJECTIVES The c.2268dup mutation in the thyroid peroxidase (TPO) gene is the most common TPO alteration reported in Taiwanese patients with thyroid dyshormonogenesis. The ancestors of these patients are believed to originate from the southern province of China. Our previous study showed that this mutation leads to reduced abundance of the TPO protein and(More)
The FOXE1 gene was screened for mutations in a cohort of 34 unrelated patients with congenital hypothyroidism, 14 of whom had thyroid dysgenesis and 18 were normal (the thyroid status for 2 patients was unknown). The entire coding region of the FOXE1 gene was PCR-amplified, then analyzed using single-stranded conformational polymorphism, followed by(More)
In this study, the effects of low and high concentrations of the Anacardium occidentale shoot extracts on gene expression in liver HepG2 cells were investigated. From MTT assays, the concentration of the shoot extracts that maintained 50% cell viability (IC50) was 1.7 mg/ml. Cell viability was kept above 90% at both 0.4 mg/ml and 0.6 mg/ml of the extracts.(More)
Proteome analysis of the human hair remains challenging due to the poor solubility of hair proteins and the difficulty in their extraction. In the present study, we have developed a rapid extraction protocol for hair shaft protein using alkaline-based buffer. The new protocol accelerated the procedure by reducing the extraction time from at least a day to(More)
Carrageenan is a polysaccharide extracted from different species of red seaweed for use in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics industries. In Malaysia, κ-carrageenan is obtained through extraction from the tropical red seaweed Kappaphycus alvarezii. The use of tissue culture techniques in the propagation of K. alvarezii has proven to be effective in solving(More)
