1-cys peroxiredoxin (1-cysPrx), a member of the peroxiredoxin family with a single conserved cysteine residue, reduces a broad spectrum of hydroperoxides. This study was undertaken to examine changes in 1-cysPrx expression in human cataract samples, human lens epithelial (HLE B3) cell line, and rat organ-cultured lenses in response to oxidative insult(More)
Biochemical and enzymatic characterization for extracellular protease isolated from Cordyceps militaris cultivated on rice bran medium was investigated. C militaris produced proteolytic enzymes from 10 days after inoculation, maximum enzyme production was found at 25 days. The optimum temperature and pH of proteases production was at 25C and pH 7.0,(More)
Among the cystatin superfamily, cystatin B, also known as stefin B, is an intracellular inhibitor that regulates the activities of cysteine proteases, such as papain and cathepsins. In this study, the 536 bp cystatin B cDNA (referred to hereafter as PoCystatin B) was cloned from olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) using a combination of the rapid(More)
PURPOSE The Upper Limb Physician's Rating Scale (ULPRS) is a tool that assesses movement quality of the upper limbs. It is used as an outcome measure after botulinum toxin type A injection in children with cerebral palsy (CP). This study aimed to investigate the reliability and validity of the ULPRS in children with spastic CP. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
