Co-inheritance of alpha globin gene deletion lowering serum iron level in female beta thalassemia patients.

Mol Biol Rep 2020 Jan 8;47(1):603-606. Epub 2019 Nov 8.

Department of Genetic Research, Institute for Research and Medical Consultation (IRMC), Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University, Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

In the Eastern province of Saudi Arabia, thalassemia is highly common. Data on the effect of alpha globin gene variation on the concentration of iron on transfusion dependent Saudis are scanty. A total of 166 transfusions dependent ?-thalassemia were included in this study to understand association between the alpha globin gene variation and concentration of iron. Using multiplex PCR, the alpha globin gene deletions were identified. Also, HBA1 and HBA2 genes were sequenced by Sanger sequencing. Saudi transfusion dependent female ?-thalassemia patients with wild alpha globin genotype (??/??) were observed with iron level beyond the normal range. However, normal range of iron was observed in transfusion dependent Saudi female beta thalassemia patients co-inherited with double (-?/-?, or --/?? or --/?? or - (?) /??) or double heterozygosity (- -/-?) alpha globin gene deletions, which is significantly (p?

Cisplatin-functionalized three-dimensional magnetic SBA-16 for treating breast cancer cells (MCF-7).

Artif Cells Nanomed Biotechnol 2019 Dec;47(1):3079-3086

f Department of Genetic Research, Institute for Research and Medical Consultations, Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University , Dammam , Saudi Arabia.

The engineering of multifunctional therapeutics in an integrated single platform is demonstrated using three-dimensional SBA-16 (S-16). 10?wt% iron oxide nanoparticles (Fe) were loaded into the cage type of cubic pores through enforced adsorption technique. Fe/S-16 is then functionalized with amine-based silane (A), polyacrylic acid (P) and cisplatin (Cp). The physicochemical textural analysis showed the formation of nano metal oxide distributions at pore walls of S-16 with magnetization of 2.39?emu/g. S-16 based nanoformulations showed high percentage of Cp adsorption (90%) and percentage cumulative release (60%). study of Fe/S-16-A-Cp showed high toxicity against breast cancer cell line MCF-7 and normal cell line Human foreskin fibroblast (HFF-1) compared to Fe/S-16 indicating cisplatin profusion inside the cells than free cisplatin. While skin fibroblast seems to be resistant to Fe/S-16-AP-Cp with very high LC in compare to MCF-7. This indicates the unrelease of cisplatin in skin fibroblast after Fe/S-16-AP-Cp treatment due to effective encapsulation inside the cubic pores and core blockage due to pH-sensitive polyacrylic acid. Also, these treatments resulted in morphological changes in the cells such as DNA condensation and nuclear fragmentation.

Isolation and characterization of a novel thermophile; , applied for the green synthesis of ZnO nanoparticles.

Artif Cells Nanomed Biotechnol 2019 Dec;47(1):2072-2082

g Department of Food Science and Technology, University of Kashmir , Srinagar , India.

The establishment of a benign system for the nanoparticle (NPs) synthesis, is a key in nanotechnology for the environmental and health care industries. Therefore, enrichment of novel biological systems for the green synthesis is in significant demand, to lift up these compounds in the biomedical industries. The present work, reports the green synthesis of ZnO NPs, employing a novel thermophile, identified as (GeneBank MG822851) isolated from the leaf of date palm plant (), as an eco-friendly nanobiofactory. Physiochemical characterization of ZnO NPs (50?±?5?nm in size), was achieved by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), diffuse reflectance UV-Visible spectroscopy (DR UV-Vis spectroscopy), Thermogravimetry analysis (TGA), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmissiom electron microscopy (TEM). The morphogenesis and antimicrobial activity of synthesized ZnO NPs, was studied by evaluating the minimum inhibitory/bactericidal concentration (MIC&MBC) against (8 and 16?mg/mL) and (4 and 8?mg/mL), respectively. The present study encourages the use of for the green synthesis of ZnO NP. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report on the study of thermophilic, for green synthesis of NPs in general and ZnO NPs in particular.

Genetic disorder prenatal diagnosis and pregnancy termination practices among high consanguinity population, Saudi Arabia.

Sci Rep 2019 11 21;9(1):17248. Epub 2019 Nov 21.

Department of Genetic Research, Institute for Research and Medical Consultation (IRMC), Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University, Dammam, 31441, Saudi Arabia.

The prevalence of consanguineous marriage and genetic disorders are high in Saudi Arabia. There were records on the practices of Saudis toward prenatal diagnosis (PND) and termination of pregnancy (TOP), however the sample sizes are small. This study has targeted the Saudi Arabian community and family history of genetic disorders to determine the practices toward PND and TOP. The cross-sectional survey was conducted among Saudis (n?=?2761) to determine their practices toward reproductive-decision making. Regression analysis was conducted to identify the association of the limiting factors, relative merits and family history on the outcomes. Total of 2507 participants returned completed questionnaire. The practice towards PND (68%) were more favorable than TOP (33%). PND was found to be a good opportunity for early diagnosis and gives parent's choice. Education, history with affected baby, prior knowledge and religious belief were significant deciding factors of PND and TOP. Down syndrome (n?=?161) and sickle cell anemia (n?=?152) were commonly available genetic disorder among participant's family. Respondents with autistic cases in their family have higher acceptance rate for TOP. Non-consanguineous are more willing to consider TOP than consanguineous. Participants with abnormal fetus, aged of?>?36 years, married and educated Saudis were more likely consider TOP. Though, religion is the most influencing factor for not accepting TOP, comparatively willingness to PND and TOP have increased recently. Awareness campaigns about PND and TOP may increase the chances of accepting prenatal genetic diagnosis.

Functional DNA variations associated with Saudi female with low VO: a pilot microarray study.

Am J Transl Res 2019 15;11(6):3659-3670. Epub 2019 Jun 15.

Department of Genetic Research, Institute for Research and Medical Consultation (IRMC), Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University Dammam 31441, Saudi Arabia.

The study aims to explore the genetic predispositions and molecular pathways of low cardiorespiratory fitness (VO) in young Saudi females ( = 70). Young females were grouped based on the level of VO according to the specification of the physical fitness specialist certification as low VO (< 28.9; = 19) and high VO (> 33; = 14) and genotyped for 243345 putative functional exonic variants. The -rs10037485T, -rs75380747G and -rs13695C SNPs on chromosome 5, 12 and 17, respectively were found to be the most significant among young Saudi females with low VO ( < 8.01 × 10). Linkage disequilibrium (LD) analysis among the significant SNPs ( < 0.001) have revealed risk and protective haplotypes with high degree (-value < 1.0 × 10) of LD. The most significant risk haplotypes with the low VO in young Saudi females are: Chromosome 1: -rs10800201G; -rs4657537A; rs4657583T (-value = 2.00 × 10); Chromosome 3: rs978979G; -rs7637449A; -rs111934125T; -rs9835332G (-value = 5.00 × 10) and Chromosome 17: -rs13696C; -rs1901187C (-value = 1.00 × 10). Functional Enrichment Analysis revealed that the genes with SNPs < 0.001 have significantly involved in the heart rate ( = 0.00442), body weight ( = 0.00629), breath tests ( = 0.0147), proteolysis ( = 0.00623) and cardiac muscle fiber development ( = 0.0263). In conclusion we could say that the identified genetic predispositions and gene-annotation enrichment in low VO in young Saudi females revealed that they are at high risk for developing cardiovascular complications.
