Zinc alpha 2-glycoprotein (ZAG) is a protein of interest because of its ability to play many important functions in the human body, including fertilization and lipid mobilization. After the discovery of this molecule, during the last 5 decades, various studies have been documented on its structure and functions, but still, it is considered as a protein with(More)
We have determined the crystal structure of a novel regulatory protein (MGP-40) from the mammary gland. This protein is implicated as a protective signaling factor that determines which cells are to survive the drastic tissue remodeling that occurs during involution. It has been indicated that certain cancers could surreptitiously utilize the proposed(More)
BACKGROUND Postacne scarring is disfiguring, both physically as well as psychologically. Over the past two decades, multiple modalities for treatment of acne scars have emerged and microneedling with dermaroller is one of them. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of microneedling treatment for atrophic facial acne scars. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
This is the first report on the formation of a complex between zinc alpha2-glycoprotein (ZAG) and prolactin-inducible protein (PIP). The complex was purified from human seminal plasma and crystallized using 20% polyethylene glycol 9000 and 5% hexaethylene glycol. The structure of the complex has been determined using X-ray crystallographic method and(More)
Ribosome-inactivating proteins having antitumor and immunomodulatory properties constitute the active principle of widely used mistletoe therapy in Europe. This is the first report of the four isoforms of Himalayan mistletoe ribosome-inactivating proteins (HmRips) from Viscum album parasitized on wild apple inhabiting NW Himalayas. HmRips were purified by(More)
Glycosaminoglycans, especially heparin, are involved in various cell processes such as apoptosis, cell cycle control, platelet activation, capacitation, acrosome reaction and sperm decondensation. Heparin-binding proteins (HBPs) are essential constituents of human seminal fluid, which bind to sperm lipids containing the phosphorylcholine group and mediate(More)
A systematic investigation of the effects of several commonly used detergents on the conformation and function of concanavalin A at pH 7 in solution form was made by using circular dichroism (CD), intrinsic fluorescence, 1-anilino 8-sulphonic acid (ANS) binding, dynamic light scattering (DLS) and sugar inhibition assay. In the presence of 6.0 mM sodium(More)
BACKGROUND The p38alpha MAP kinase pathway is involved in inflammation, cell differentiation, growth, apoptosis and production of pro-inflammatory cytokines TNF-alpha and IL-1beta. The overproduction of these cytokines plays an important role in cancer. The aim of this work was to design a peptide inhibitor on the basis of structural information of the(More)
Zinc alpha2-glycoprotein (ZAG) is present at high concentration in human seminal plasma, and considered as soluble homologue of MHC-I. ZAG is a well-known biomarker for prostate and breast carcinomas. We have purified a naturally occurring complex of ZAG with Prolactin inducible protein (PIP), which is also a well-known biomarker for the same. The ZAG-PIP(More)
Psychodermatology is an interesting domain of dermatology that overlaps with psychiatry. This arena in dermatology has received limited diligence, partly due to lack of training in this realm. We present here a comprehensive review of salient features and treatment updates in primary psychiatric dermatoses and have also discussed the role of psyche in(More)
