Synonymous Variant of ACE Gene (rs4343) is Coupled with Early Age at Onset and Diminished Diabetic Duration in South Indian Diabetic Nephropathy Patients

Diabetic nephropathy (T2DN) is a major micro vascular complication associated with type-2 diabetes (T2DM). Abnormally active Renin Angiotensin System pathway is shown to influence the development of T2DN and the inter-individual variation with respect to ACE levels, a key enzyme in this pathway partly dependent on the genetic variants of ACE; suggests patient’s genotype may influence the ..

Adrenomedullin gene polymorphisms (rs4399321A/G and rs4910118C/T) in pregnancy related disorder: Preeclampsia

Preeclampsia (PE), a pregnancy specific vascular disorder which is characterized by hypertension and proteinuria is a leading cause of maternal, fetal/neonatal morbidity and mortality affecting 5-14% of pregnancies. PE is a multifactorial disorder associated with poor placentation, placental hypoxia, poor angiogenesis and excessive maternal inflammation. Adrenomedullin (ADM) is a multi.. Read More»

Diabetes mellitus types: Key genetic determinants and risk assessment

The characteristic symptom of diabetes is consistently elevated levels of blood sugar. This is instigated either by complete lack of insulin production (type 1 diabetes), reduced level of insulin production (type 2 diabetes) or insulin resistance (inability of body cells to take up glucose). Other types of diabetes include maturity onset of diabetes of the young (MODY), a form of type 2 diabete.. Read More»

Molecular insights of mitochondrial 16S rDNA genes of the native honey bees subspecies Apis mellifera carnica and Apis mellifera jementica (Hymenoptera: Apidae) in Saudi Arabia

The honey bee Apis mellifera is of major importance for the world’s agriculture and is also suitable for environmental monitoring. It includes several recognized subspecies distinguished by using morphological and morphometric variants. Here, 200 adult worker Apis mellifera honey bees were collected from Hail region, Saudi Arabia. Mitochondrial 16S rDNA was conducted to detect molecular p.. Read More»
