    Title Enhanced Expression of Atnhx1, in Transgenic Groundnut (arachis Hypogaea L.) Improves Salt and Drought Tolerence.
    Date April 2012
    Journal Molecular Biotechnology

    Salinity and drought are main threat to agriculture productivity, to avoid further losses it is necessary to improve the genetic material of crops against these stresses In this present study, AtNHX1, a vacuolar type Na(+)/H(+) antiporter gene driven by 35S promoter was introduced into groundnut using Agrobacterium tumefaciens transformation system. The stable integration of the AtNHX1 gene was confirmed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and southern blot analysis. It was found that transgenic plants having AtNHX1 gene are more resistant to high concentration of salt and water deprivation than the wild type plants. Salt and proline level in the leaves of the transgenic plants were also much higher than that of wild type plants. The results showed that overexpression of AtNHX1 gene not only improved salt tolerance but also drought tolerance in transgenic groundnut. Our results suggest that these plants could be cultivated in salt and drought-affected soils.

    Title Correlation of Gene and Mediator Expression with Clinical Endpoints in an Acute Interleukin-1beta-driven Model of Joint Pathology.
    Date February 2010
    Journal Osteoarthritis and Cartilage / Oars, Osteoarthritis Research Society

    Interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) plays a key role in the pathogenesis of chronic joint diseases, including osteoarthritis (OA), and drives a cascade of inflammatory and destructive responses within the synovial joint. Animal models of arthritis support the role of IL-1beta in joint pathology, however, the molecular changes downstream of IL-1beta are poorly understood in vivo. This study aimed to evaluate the intra-articular (i.a.) injection of IL-1beta in the rat joint as an acute model of joint disease and associate gene and mediator expression with clinical endpoints and pathological changes.

    Title Solid-phase Synthesis and Biological Evaluation of a Parallel Library of 2,3-dihydro-1,5-benzothiazepines.
    Date October 2008
    Journal Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry

    Solid-phase synthesis of a parallel library of 3'-hydroxy-2,3-dihydrobenzothiazepines has been carried out through [4+3] annulation of alpha,beta-unsaturated ketones with aminothiophenol, using Wang resin as solid support. The synthesized compounds were evaluated for their potential as antibacterial, tumor inhibitors as well as acetyl- and butyrylcholinesterase inhibitors. None of the compounds showed any significant antibacterial activity. However, quite a few compounds showed significant potential as crown gall tumor inhibitors. These results reflect a strong exploratory potential in search of new benzothiazepines as source of anticancer agents. The results of the inhibition of cholinesterase revealed that benzothiazepines have a greater potential as butyrylcholinesterase inhibitors as compared to acetylcholinesterase. Moreover, the substitution of hydroxy group at C-3 in ring A led to increased activity when compared to unsubstituted- and 2'-OH substituted benzothiazepines.

    Title Changes in the Patterns, Presentation and Management of Penetrating Chest Trauma Patients at a Level Ii Trauma Centre in Southern Pakistan over the Last Two Decades.
    Journal Interactive Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery

    Penetrating chest trauma can be used as an indicator of violence in the country. We aimed to look at the changes in its incidence and management at a major trauma centre in the country. We also wanted to look at any effect of prehospital time on surgical intervention and outcome of the victim. In this retrospective descriptive study, we observed the presentation and management of 191 penetrating chest injury patients at a level II trauma hospital in Pakistan in the last 20 years. The study sample was divided into two groups: Group 1, 1988-1998 and Group 2, 1999-2009. No significant change in incidence of trauma was observed between the two groups. The delay in the time between event and arrival showed an increase in the number of surgical procedures performed. Also the number of thoracotomies performed went up significantly in the second decade from 5.7 to 16.5% with a P<0.05. Six (3.1%) mortality cases were observed in 20 years. It was seen that the greater the prehospital time, the greater the chances of surgery. Also seen was the increase in mortality as critical cases could make it to the hospital alive in recent times due to improved transportation services.
