Lack of association between - 308 tumor necrosis factor polymorphism and susceptibility to cerebral malaria among Central Sudanese children

  Up to 500 millions are affected by malaria parasite each year and only 1% of them develop severe clinical forms of the disease. No full satisfactory explanation for the fact that only small proportion of malaria infected individuals develops severe clinical phenotypes while others don’t. The aims of the present study is to assess the role of TNF-α - 308 G>A in predisposing to cerebral malaria...

Theileria parva genome and CTL candidate vaccine antigens: An overview

  The availability of complete genome sequences for a variety of organisms, coupled with genome-wide analyses that allow evaluation of the functions of thousands of genes in parallel, have the potential to greatly impact on cell biology research. The lymphocyte-transforming Theileria parva parasite nuclear genome (8.3 Mbp in length consisting of four chromosomes) available in GenBank reveals...

Physical properties and biological applications of novel substituted biphenyl-sulfonamides

  This study explores the effect of the structural change of novel sulfonamide based-surfactants on the surfactant’s behavior and antimicrobial activity. In order, to meet this as our primary goal, three different series, biphenyl-4,4'-disulfonamides (Series A, A1-4), amine acid salts of 2,2`-[biphenyl-4,4'-diylbis(sulfonylimine)] dianiline (Series B, B1-4) and their corresponding copper and...

Genetic variation within and among three invasive Prosopis juliflora (Leguminosae) populations in the River Nile State, Sudan

  The species of Prosopis (Leguminosae) are trees or shrubs well adapted to grow in arid and semi arid regions. In Sudan Prosopis juliflora was introduced in 1917. Currently, it has become a noxious weed spreading aggressively in natural and managed habitats. The structure of genetic diversity within and among P. juliflora populations infesting three forests in the River Nile State...
