Study of Catsper1 Protein Levels in Unexplained and Idiopathic Infertile Men

ABSTRACT Catsper 1 is an important protein involved in calcium channel synthesis. These channels are essential for the hyperactivity of sperm flagellum, chemotaxis towards the egg, capacitation and acrosome reaction. Data analysis from unexplained infertility (n=50), idiopathic infertile men (Asthenozoospermia (n=50), Oligozoospermia (n=50)), and Normospermia fertile men as a control …

Study the correlation between plasma soluble corin and hypertention in ischemic heart disease in male patients

Abstract The Plasma soluble corin is a key transmembrane serine protease, its principal functions is the synthesis of mature atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), these proteins have important functions in maintaining salt–water balance, blood pressure and cardiac function. Plasma soluble corin has been suggested to be …

Effect of serum fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 and CAPS proteins on calcium status in βthalassaemia major patients who are free from overt inflammation

ABSTRACT : Bone disorders and disturbed calcium (Ca) homeostasis are common disorders in b-thalassaemia major (b-TM). In the present study, two bone related markers are studied in b-TM patients with negative C-reactive protein for the first time; fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) and CAPS protein. Another goal is to …
