In recent years, there has been a great deal of attention toward the field of free radical chemistry. Free radicals reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species are generated by our body by various endogenous systems, exposure to different physiochemical conditions or pathological states. A balance between free radicals and antioxidants is(More)
Sperm motility is an important prerequisite for successful fertilization and is regulated by cyclic AMP activated protein kinase A which phosphorylates flagella proteins like axonemal dynein and initiates motility. Increase in calcium influx reverses this process by dephosphorylation that is mediated by calcineurin. Analyzing the phosphoenriched fractions(More)
GRP78, a resident endoplasmic reticulum (ER) chaperone involved in protein transport, folding and assembly, has been reported in sperm. It is shown to be localized in the neck region of human sperm. We have previously reported GRP78 to be less phosphorylated in asthenozoosperm.The present study aimed to determine whether sperm GRP78 undergoes(More)

A sensitive and specific sandwich ELISA was developed for the diagnosis of Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia (GT) and the heterozygote carriers of the disease using whole blood platelets. The assay used anti-CD36 antibody to capture platelets from platelet-rich plasma which was subsequently treated with a bioengineered disintegrin/alkaline phosphatase hybrid(More)
