Modification of Biochemical Derangements and VEGF Secretion May Prevent Diabetic Retinopathy (DR): An Advance Study

Unused, massive intracellular glucose in insulin-independent tissues, such as the retina, has many consequences: I increased formation of advanced glycation end products, (ii) polyol pathway activation, (iii) anaerobic glycolysis, (iv) glutamate toxicity, (v) lipid peroxidation and oxidative stress, and (vi) convergence to up regulation of antigenic peptides. The aim of this pilot study is to…

Photoprotection Comprising Oil Derived from Dromedary Camel Hump Fat: An Overview

Aims: Camelus dromedarius (dromedary or one-humped camels) are known to endure harsh conditions including extreme temperatures and high solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation in desert wilderness areas. This remarkable survival in the harsh desert conditions is attributed to distinctive bodily features enabling them to cope with this toxic environment. The present study hypothesized that the oil…

Structure, Expression and Functions of Bovine Alpha-Tocopherol Transfer Protein (α-TTP)

α-tocopherol transfer protein (α-TTP) of bovine consists of 282 amino acids with 98% and 83% identities to sheep and rat orthologs, respectively. Bovine α-TTP has an additional 5 amino acids (GEEVT) at the C terminus, which rat, human, mouse α-TTPs do not have. The Blast research suggested that the C-terminal sequences of α-TTP are specific…
