Many proteins displayed differential expression (either up- or down-regulation) when proteome of migrating and non-migrating epithelium was assessed using 2-DE and ESI-Q-TOF MS/MS. From the up-regulated set, we have identified for the first time a 69-kDa albumin precursor protein with four peptides sequences and 70-kDa heat shock protein (hsp70) with one(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the performance of radioimmunoassay (RIA) with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and electrochemiluminescence (ECLIA) for the quantification of vitamin D (25OHD). METHODS HPLC method for the determination of 25OHD in human biological samples was developed and compared in terms of accuracy and precision with a commercially(More)
In order to investigate the role of albumin precursor and Hsp70 in corneal wound healing, we have analyzed the distribution of these proteins in wounded and non-wounded corneas of rabbits and the effects of topical applications of anti-albumin precursor and anti-Hsp70 antibodies on wound healing. Anti-albumin precursor and anti-Hsp70 antibodies were(More)
BACKGROUND In order to understand the mechanism of stone genesis, it is essential to determine the characteristics of macromolecules constituting the urinary stones. We characterized proteins from the inner core and outer matrix of calcium oxalate (CaOx) renal stones. METHODS Inner core and outer matrix of CaOx renal stones were separated and proteins(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatitis B virus (HBV) genotypes and mutations are gaining importance in determining the clinical course of chronic liver disease. OBJECTIVES To determine and compare the distribution of HBV genotypes and genomic variations in Pakistan to other parts of the world. PATIENTS AND METHODS We conducted a prospective study at Aga Khan University(More)
Aim: To evaluate the functional relationship between the nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzymes in the pathogenesis of human senile cataract lenses of non-diabetic patients. Methods: Total solubilized proteins from human cataract lens were compared with normal lens (control) by 2-Dimenstional gel electrophoresis (2-DE). Proteins(More)
In vitro antifungal activity and phytochemical constituents of essential oil, aqueous, methanol and chloroform extract of Eucalyptus citriodora Hook leaves were investigated. A qualitative phytochemical analysis was performed for the detection of alkaloids, cardiac glycosides, flavonoids, saponins, sterols, tannins and phenols. Methanolic extract holds all(More)
