    Amino acids and their complex formation properties with divalent metal ions, a comparative investigation of structure and stability in binary systems

    , Article Current Pharmaceutical Analysis ; Volume 10, Issue 2 , 2014 , Pages 122-134 ; ISSN: 15734129 Sajadi, S. A. A ; Sharif University of Technology
    A comparative investigation has been developed for the stability constants of several amino acid complexes with divalent metal ions, which have been determined by potentiometric pH titration. Depending on the metal ion-binding properties, vital differences in the building complexes were observed. The present study indicates that in some M(L) complexes, metal ions are arranged in carboxyl groups, but in other M(L)complexes, some metal ions are able to build chelate over amine groups. The results mentioned-above demonstrate that for some M(L) complexes, the stability constants are also largely determined by the affinity of metal ions for amine group. This leads to a kind of selectivity of... 

    NMR based metabonomics study on celiac disease in the blood serum

    , Article Gastroenterology and Hepatology from Bed to Bench ; Volume 6, Issue 4 , 2013 , Pages 190-194 ; 20082258 (ISSN) Fathi, F ; Ektefa, F ; Arefi Oskouie, A ; Rostami, K ; Rezaei Tavirani, M ; Mohammad Alizadeh, A. H ; Tafazzoli, M ; Rostami Nejad, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Aim: The aim of this study is to look for the proper methods that would be a major step towards untreated CD diagnosis and seek the metabolic biomarkers causes of CD and compare them to control group. Background: Celiac disease (CD) is a common autoimmune disorder that is not easily diagnosed using the clinical tests. Patients and methods: Thirty cases and 30 controls were entered into this study. Metabolic profiling was obtained using proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1HNMR) to seek metabolites that are helpful for the detection of CD. Classification of CD and healthy subject was done using random forest (RF). Results: The obtained classification model showed an 89% correct...

    Background: Pluripotency is proposed to exist in two different stages: Naive and Primed. Conventional human pluripotent cells are essentially in the primed stage. In recent years, several protocols have claimed to generate naive human embryonic stem cells (hESCs). To the best of our knowledge, none of these protocols is currently recognized as the gold standard method. Furthermore, the consistency of the resulting cells from these diverse protocols at the molecular level is yet to be shown. Additionally, little is known about the principles that govern the metabolic differences between naive and primed pluripotency. In this work, using a computational approach, we tried to shed light on... 

    A metabonomics study on crohn's disease using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy

    , Article HealthMED ; Volume 6, Issue 11 , July , 2012 , Pages 3577-3583 ; 18402291 (ISSN) Fathi, F ; Kyani, A ; Nejad, M. R ; Rezaye Tavirani, M ; Naderi, N ; Zali, M. R ; Tafazzoli, M ; Oskouie, A. A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Objective: Crohn's disease (CD) is one the important illnesses can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract. CD is not easily diagnosed using the clinical tests. Thus, the discovery of proper methods would be a major step towards CD diagnosis. The aim of this study was to seek the metabolic biomarkers causes of CD compare to control group. Materials and Methods: In present study, we employed metabolic profiling using proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1HNMR) to find metabolites in serum which are helpful for the diagnosis of CD. Classification of CD and healthy subject was done using classification and regression trees (CART). The metabolites that caused changes in people... 

    Metabolomic biomarkers in the diagnosis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

    Background: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most abundant chronic liver disorder, because racial and ethnic differences may influence prevalence and severity of NAFLD. Objectives: This metabolomic study was conducted to identify the metabolic biomarkers and determine the mechanism of progress of NAFLD in Iranian patients. Methods: Serum samples were collected from 75 participants (37 healthy controls and 38 patients with NAFLD) after an overnight fast. The metabolome of all samples were determined by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and were compared by multivariate statistical analysis. Results: Totally, 19 metabolomic biomarkers were identified by NMR. Compared to healthy...
