Objective: To monitor the physiological characteristics and genes expression of obesity rat model after rambutan peel extract (RPE) treatment.

Methods: Twenty-four 12-week-old male rats were divided into 4 groups: normal, obesity, obesity treated with ellagic acid (O-EA) and obesity treated with RPE30 (O-RPE30). Physiological characteristics were monitored by measuring body weight, calorie intake, size of adipocyte and level of triglyceride. Peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPARγ), CCAAT/enhancer-binding proteins α and fatty acid binding protein 4 (FABP4) expression were observed using immunohistochemistry, western blotting and quantitative RT-PCR methods.

Results: Body weight gain of O-EA and O-RPE30 rats were lower than obesity group and size of adipocyte cells were smaller than obesity group (P < 0.05), but when we compared to normal group, those groups had higher body weight gain and larger adipocyte cells. The level of triglycerides, protein expression of PPARγ and mRNA level of FABP4 genes were significantly downregulated on O-EA and O-RPE30 compared to obesity group (P < 0.05). Our results indicated that RPE had potential substance as inhibitor of body weight gain, declining of size of adipocyte, level of triglycerides, PPARγ expression and mRNA level of FABP4 gene on obesity rat model.

Conclusions: RPE have anti-obesity activity by inhibiting body weight gain, declining size of adipocyte, decreasing triglyceride, PPARγ expression and mRNA level of FABP4 gene on obesity rat model.

 Rike Oktarianti, Kartika Senjarini, Toshiya Hayano, Fatchiyah Fatchiyah, Aulanni’am. Journal of Infection and Public Health (2015) xxx, xxx—xxx


Humans develop anti-salivary proteins after arthropod bites or exposureto insect salivary proteins. This reaction indicates that vector bites have a positiveeffect on the host immune response, which can be used as epidemiological markersof exposure to the vector. Our previous study identified two immunogenic proteinswith molecular weights of 31 kDa and 56 kDa from salivary gland extract (SGE) ofAedes aegypti that cross-reacted with serum samples from Dengue HemorrhagicFever (DHF) patients and healthy people in an endemic area (Indonesia). Serum sam-ples from individuals living in non-endemic area (sub-tropical country) and infantsdid not show the immunogenic reactions. The objective of this research was to iden-tify two immunogenic proteins, i.e., 31 and 56 kDa by using proteomic analysis. Inthis study, proteomic analysis resulted in identification of 13 proteins and 7 proteinsfrom the 31 kDa- and 56 kDa-immunogenic protein bands, respectively. Among thoseproteins, the D7 protein (Arthropode Odorant-Binding Protein, AOBP) was the mostabundant in 31-kDa band, and apyrase was the major protein of the 56-kDa band.© 2015 King Saud Bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences.

 Fatchiyah Fatchiyah, Ferlany Hardiyanti, Nashi Widodo. Acta Inform Med. 2015 APR 23(2): 90-96 doi: 10.5455/aim.2015.23.90-96


Background: Advanced Glycation End Products (AGE) play a pivotal role in the development various degenerative diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, neuropathy, and nephropathy. Different studies have been done to employ AGEs as drug targets for the diseases therapy. In previous study, we have found bioactive peptide from Ethawah goat milk for anti-diabetic that may work through inhibition of AGE receptor function. However, the mechanism of bioactive peptides inhibits AGE- AGE receptor (RAGE) bonding still not clear yet. Therefore we investigated the inhibition mechanism by calculate the potential energy binding among the peptides, AGEs and RAGE using molecular docking system.

Methods: Modeling 3D-structure was predicted by SWISS-MODEL web server. The virtual interaction was analyzed by docking system using HEX 8.0, Pymol and Discovery Studio 4.0 software.

Results: this study showed that AGEs (Argypirimidine, Imidazole, Pentosidine and Pyrraline) bind to C-domain of RAGE. The total energy binding of RAGE with Argypirimidine, Imidazole, Pentosidine and Pyrraline were 378.35kJ/mol, -74.57kJ/mol, -301.25kJ/mol and -400.72kJ/mol, respectively. We have found three peptides among eight peptides from Ethawah goat milk, which are able bind to C-domain of RAGE, there are CSN1S2 f41-47, CSN1S2 f182-189, and CSN1S2 f214-221. The CSN1S22 f41-47 at arginine residue 47 interacts with proline162, leusine163 and leusine158 of RAGE. The total binding energy between CSN1S2 f41-47, CSN1S2 f182-189, and CSN1S2 f214-221 with RAGE were -378.35 kJ/mol, -359.97kJ/mol, -356.78 kJ/mol, respectively. Total binding energy and binding pattern indicated that RAGE more prefer bind with peptide and block AGE bind to functional site of RAGE. Further analysis showed that complex peptide-RAGE shifted binding site of AGE on function domain RAGE.

Conclusion: This study suggested that the peptides from Ethawah goat milk may act as an inhibitor of AGEs-RAGE interaction that impaired signal transduction cascade at the cellular level.

 Arie Srihardyastutie, Djoko W Soeatmadji.  Fatchiyah, Aulanni’am4. Biomedical Research 2015; 26 (2): 293-298 ISSN 0970-938X www.biomedres.info


The increasing level of serum pancreatic enzyme indicates an inflammation of exocrine pancreas, known as pancreatitis. One of the pancreatic enzymes that evaluated in pancreatitis is lipase. The aim of the study was to evaluate the correlation of increasing level of serum lipase with duration of disease and progression of diabetes in Indonesian T2D subject. Subjects were categorized according to ADA 2013 into three groups: healthy controls (n=21), prediabetes (n=12), and diabetes (n=34). The data were analyzed statistically and expressed as mean ± SD. Multivariate analysis of variance was used for showing the differences of the variables. Multiple

regressions were applied for correlation studies of the variables and it was continued with Structure Equation Modelling-Generalized Structure Component Analysis (SEM-GCSA) for evaluating the coefficient contribution of each variable in Hypothetic Model. The results showed there were elevated levels of blood glucose, insulin resistance, creatinine, and serum lipase activity in T2D. The increased serum lipase activities were positively correlated with duration of diseases, plasma glucose, HbA1c level, Insulin Resistance Index, and creatinine level, but did not correlate with lipid profile (Cholesterol, Triglyceride, HDL and LDL), and insulin level in Indonesian T2D Patients. Hypothetic structural model showed that decreasing level of insulin contributed to increase insulin resistance, likewise, insulin resistance contributed positively to glucose level, and glucose level contributed to increase HbA1c level and also lipase activity, but the increasing activity of lipase was not contributed significantly to increase glucose level. So, the high serum lipase has correlation with progression of T2D.

‘‘‘Dengue   Haemorraghic   Fever   (DHF)   is   an   acute   Flavivirus   infection   transmitted   by several   species   of   Aedes   mosquitoes   with  Aedes   aegypti   as   the   main   vector.   During blood    feeding,  arthropod   vectors  inject  saliva  into  vertebrate  hosts.  The  saliva  is biochemically     complex,   pharmacologically     active  and  plays   an  important   role  in pathogen    transmission.   The   objective  of  this  research  is  to  identify  immunogenic salivary   gland   proteins   of   Ae.   aegypti   against   human   blood   sera   of   people   living   in endemic area. Protein profile from Salivary Glands (SG) of         Ae. aegypti was observed by    12%    SDS-PAGE       from   lab.  scale  cultures   and   from   landing   populations.  Identification   of   immunogenic   proteins   from   both   sample   was   carried   out   by   using Western   Blot   Analysis   after   cross   reaction   of   Salivary   Gland   Extract   (SGE)   with   3 different   human   sera:   from   DHF   patients,   healthy   persons   who   were   exposed   to   Ae. aegypti and healthy person who were likely not exposed. Sera from healthy people from non   endemic   areas   and   from   infants   were   used   as   negative   controls.   Over   all,   the protein   profiles  from  lab.  scale  cultures  SGE   and  landing   populations   were  quite  similar.   We   found   13   protein   bands   were   identified   ranging   from   26   kDa   up   to   255 kDa. We predicted that     255, 56, 31, 27 and 26 kDa are target protein, which is      two of immunogenic proteins were able to cross-react with human sera from people living in endemic area on 31 and 56 kDa. These bands appeared only in samples from humans who were previously exposed to mosquitoes bites, and not in humans who had not been  exposed. These immunogenic salivary proteins may serve as human immune response against Ae. aegypti bites.   This result indicated that may the 31 and 56kDa protein has function as transmitted pathogens.

Rizky Nurdiansyah , Sri Rahayu Lestari  and Fatchiyah Fatchiyah (Biotropika, 2013, vol 1 no 6: )


This  study  observes  the  inhibition  of  rambutan  peel  extract  to  rat  visceral  adipose  tissue  adipogenesis  by  observing  the  expression  of  igf-1.  Experiment  stages  consist  of  rambutan  peel extraction, rat treatment, visceral adipose tissue protein isolation and separation,  and  western  blot.  Male  wistar  rats  were  divided  into normal and obese rats. The treatments consist of control, ellagic acid, placebo,  and  extract   at  5,  10,  15,  and  20  mg/kg  body  weight. Decreasing body weight gain observed in obese rats with similar food  intake  (P>0,05).  Effective  dose  observed  at  10mg/kg,  whilst  at  20  mg/kg    showed     increasing   body     weight.   Protein   profile   shows  different band numbers and intensity between groups and treatments.  Igf-1 expression is bound to Igfbp-1 at 36,7 kDa. Anti-obesity observed  at   10  mg/kg  extract  in  obese  rats.  Interestingly,  igf-1         expression is lower at 20mg/kg group. This result suggest that inhibition does not go through IR family tyrosin kinase.

Sentot J Raharjo, Chanif Mahdi, Nurdiana, Wolfgang Nellen, Fatchiyah F. Journal of Biological Researches: 18 (98-101), 2013


The aim of our research is predicting the alpha-patchouli alcohol isomer Pogostemon Herba as inhibitors cyclooxygenase (COX-1 and COX-2) isoenzymes. The data for the alpha-patchouli alcohol isomer (CD521903, CD442384, and/or CD6432585) Pogostemon Herba were explored from the pubchem database. Molecular interaction studies with COX-1 and COX-2 from mouse were done using the molecular docking tools Hex 6.12 and LeadIT2 Bisolve. The analysis of the alpha-patchouli alcohol compounds of patchouli oil showed that alpha-Patchouli alcohol (CD521903) binds to COX-1 at active sites including: LEU223B, ASP228B, LEU237B, ARG 332B, TRP 138A, GLU 139A, SER 142A, ASN 143A, and the interaction to COX-2 at active site including: GLN 289B, GLU 290B, ARG 222B, LYS 211B, THR 212B, HIS 214B, ASN 382B, HEM682B, GLN 454B, HIS 386B, TRP 387B, HIS 388B, VAL 274B, GLN 203B, VAL 291B, VAL 295B. The interaction hydrogen bond energy between alpha-patchouli alcohol: (CD521903-COX-1 complexes (-4 kJ/mol) and CD521903-COX-2 complexes (-8 kJ/ mol) by LeadIT2 Biosolve. This suggests alpha-patchouli alcohol CD521903 as candidate for a selective COX-2 inhibitor. These in silico data need further analyses of biological function activity.

Fatchiyah Fatchiyah, Nur Christian, DjokoWahono Soeatmadji.Bioinformation 9(17): 853-857 (2013) 


The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of mutation on tyrosine kinase hINSR gene of DM Type 2 patients reduce the IRS-1 activation by in silico analysis. Blood DNA of DM Type 2 patients from Saeful Anwar Hospital Malang were amplified and sequenced by specific primers of tyrosine kinase domain of hINSR gene. These gene sequences were converted to protein sequence by BLAST and the IRS-1 protein sequence is retrieved from NCBI database. Both of the protein sequence was aligned by using Bio-edit version 5.0.6. The model of three dimension protein was predicted by SWISS MODEL webserver, and visualized the structure alteration by using Pymol 0.99rc6 and Hex 5.0, and then superimpose of the hINSR and IRS-1 interaction were examined by docking using Hex 5.0. The results showed that one substitution and one deletion of 8-3F patient exon-22 hINSR gene tyrosine kinase domain cause loss of four helixes and three coils structures on tyrosine kinase hINSR protein. Six-deletions and six-substitutions on same gene domain of DMK9 patient changed the two helixes became coil structure. The binding energy of hINSR tyrosine kinase with IRS-1 of normal is E= -494.67 kJ/mol, DMK9 patient is E= -458.4 kJ/mol, and 8-3F patient is E=-544.20 kJ/mol. The DMK9 patient prognosis has better physiological condition than 8-3F patient. Interaction between 8-3F of hINSR tyrosine kinase domain mutation and PTB domain IRS-1 is more spontaneous than DMK9, but both of them were reduced on IRS-1 activation respectively.

Anggun I. Budiningrum, Achmad Rofi’i, Suharjono Suharjono, Fatchiyah Fatchiyah. J Exp. Integr. Med. J  2013; 3(4):299-304

Objective: This study aims to determine the poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP)-1 expression levels against the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) latent membrane protein (LMP-1) and BamHI-Z leftward reading frame (BZLF)-1 of nasopharynx tissues and serum of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients and characterize the histopathology of necrosis cells of NPC tissues.
Methods: 32 tissues sections consisting 24 NPC and 12 polyp tissues, and also blood serum of patients were taken from Ulin General Hospital, Banjarmasin. Tissue samples were analyzed by using immunofluorescence staining in order to examine LMP-1 and PARP-1 expression. Analyses were done by using immunoblotting with anti-LMP-1, anti-BZLF-1, anti-PARP-1, and anti-caspase-3 antibodies. Histopathological profiles of necrosis cells were analyzed by using hematoxylin-eosin staining and necrotic cells were counted by using the standard software of the microscope.
Results: LMP-1, BZLF-1 and PARP-1 proteins have high levels of expression in patients with NPC. LMP-1 expression of NPC patients and control sera are equal. Interestingly we found that 35 kDa of BZLF-1 and 55 kDa PARP-1 only expressed in NPC patients, meanwhile caspase-3 expression was negative. Histopathologically, NPC tissues were more dominated by karyorrhexis than pyknosis and karyolysis.
Conclusions: This study showed that the expression level of PARP-1 in NPC tissues was increased against LMP-1 and BZLF-1 EBV to protect DNA damage of the recipient cells. This mechanism probably stimulated cell metamorphosis and consequently provoked necrosis.

  • Methylation impact analysis of erythropoietin (EPO) Gene to hypoxia inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) activity

Firli Rahmah Primula Dewi & Fatchiyah Fatchiyah. Bioinformation 9(15): 782-787 (2013); PMC3766311


Erythropoietin (EPO) is a glycoprotein hormone that play a role as key regulator in the production of red blood cells. The promoter region of EPO is methylated in normoxic (non-hypoxia) condition, but not in hypoxic condition. Methylation of the EPO enhancer region decline the transcription activity of EPO gene. The aim of this study is to investigate how different methylation percentage affected on the regulation and transcriptional activity of EPO gene. The DNA sequence of erythropoietin gene and protein sequence was retrieved from the sequence database of NCBI. DNA structure was constructed using 3D-DART web server and modeling structure of HIF1 predicted using SWISS-MODEL web server. Methylated DNA sequence of EPO gene using performed with YASARA View software and docking of EPO gene and transcription factor HIF1 analyzed by using HADDOCK webserver. Our result showed that binding energy in 46% methylated DNA was higher ( 161,45 kcal/mol) than in unmethylated DNA ( 194,16 kcal/mol) and 8% methylated DNA ( 175,94 kcal/mol). So, we presume that a silencing mechanism of the Epo gene by methylation is correlated with the binding energy, which is required for interaction. A higher methylation percentage correlates with a higher binding energy which can cause an unstable interaction between DNA and transcription factor. In conclution, methylation of promoter and enhancer region of Epo gene leads to silencing.

J Exp. Integr. Med. 2013; 3(3): 199-204 

Objective: The aim of this research is to investigate the relationship between anemia and erythropoietin (Epo) and erythropoietin receptor (EpoR) expression. This study also investigated the relationship between Epo and EpoR expression level and the proliferation rate of cancer cells.
Methods: 20 samples of breast cancer tissues were divided into two groups; anemic group (from patiens with Hb level < 12) and non-anemic group (from patients with Hb level > 12). All samples were analyzed by using immunofluorescence staining in order to examine Epo and EpoR expression. Proliferation of cancer cells were analyzed by using Hematoxylin-Eosin staining.
Results: Anemic breast cancer group represented higher Epo and EpoR expression than the non-anemic group. The results also indicated that in anemic samples expression levels of Epo and EpoR were negatively correlated with the number of cancer cells. In contrast, Epo and EpoR expression levels from non-anemic samples were positively correlated with the number of cancer cells.
Conclusion: These results conducted that anemia is a crucial factor of hypoxic condition. Hypoxia led by anemia cause a different control mechanism of Epo and EpoR expression and cancer cell proliferation.

Oxid. Antioxid. Med. Sci. 2013; 2(2): 143-147

This study aimed to evaluate the level of reactive oxygen species, oxidative stress, and NF-κB and p53 in undifferentiated nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Twenty-four nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients and ten normal subjects were involved in order to compare the level of malondialdehyde (MDA), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), and peroxidative index (PI). The level of reactive oxygen species (ROS), expression of NF-κB and p53 from a biopsy specimen of nasopharyngeal carcinoma tissue (histologically confirmed to be undifferentiated WHO III) were also compared with normal nasopharyngeal tissue. The Student t-test was used to analyze the different level of MDA, H2O2 and PI. Analysis of MDA level and H2O2 was done by colorimetric method. Levels of ROS, NF-κB, and p53 were analyzed using laser scanning confocal microscopy. MDA and H2O2 levels as well as PI of nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients were significantly higher compared to control. The levels of ROS and expression of NF-κB and p53 were higher in nasopharyngeal carcinoma tissue than those in normal nasopharyngeal tissue. We conclude that the tissue of nasopharyngeal carcinoma is one source of ROS and oxidative stress in nasopharyngeal carcinoma. NF-κB and p53 levels in nasopharyngeal carcinoma tissue may contribute to oxidative stress in undifferentiated nasopharyngeal carcinoma.

Cukurova Med J. 2013; 38(4): 681-686 

Aim: The aims of this study are to characterize the nutrient compositions and protein profiles of Etawah breed (PE) goat yogurt fermented by double cultures .
Material and Methods: To accomplish this, we used goat and bovine milk in five treatment groups: (1) fresh milk bovine, (2) goat,(3) milk fermented by L. acidophilus and S. thermophilus (LA + ST), (4) L. bulgaricus and S. thermophilus (LB+ ST),and (5) a comersial mixture. PE goat milk was fermented using 2.5% starting bacterial concentrations at 45oC with a pH ranging from 4.5 to 6.6. Nutrient compositions were measured by proximate analysis.SDS PAGE was conducted using 15% separating and 3% stacking gels. To measure the density of protein bands, we used QuantityOne software.
Results: Our results indicated that LA+ST and LB+ST treatments had higher levels of lipids than the control treatment. Conversely, both strain combinations had lower levels of proteins than the control. Organoleptic testing suggests that many attributes (e.g., colour, taste, smell, texture and viscosity) differ significantly from the control. Protein profiles revealed that while the LB + ST and commercial cultures contained proteins with a molecular weight of 36 kDa, the LA + ST cultures did not appear to possess this protein.Based on the molecular weight, we suggest that this protein is in the alpha casein group.
Conclusion: The protein composition of fermented goat and bovine milk is similiar, but the absence of band with molecular weight 36 kDa from goat milk, LB+ST and mix comercial.

Key words: Casein Protein, Goat Milk, L. bulgaricus L. acidophillus S. thermophillus

Sentot Joko Raharjo, Fatchiyah Fatchiyah
Bioinformation 2013; 9(6): 321–324. Published online 2013 March 19. doi: 10.6026/97320630009321;
PMCID: PMC3607192

Our interest is to identify compounds from the patchouli oil of Pogostemon herba to inhibit the cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) enzyme activity. The data for the major compounds (alpha-patchouli alcohol isomer (CD521903, CD442384, and/or CD6432585), alphabulnusene, seychellene and alpha-guaiene) of patchouli oil were explored from the PubChem database. The compounds to COX-1 interactions were studied using the molecular docking tools Hex 6.12 and LeadIT2 Bisolve. The interactions were further visualized using the Chimera 1.7s viewer software tool. The analysis of the major compounds of patchouli oil showed that alpha-Patchouli alcohol (CD521903) binds to COX-1 at many active sites including: Leu223B, Asp228B, Leu237B, Arg332B, Trp138A, Glu139A, Ser142A, and Asn143A. Further analysis revealed that these binding sites are maintained by hydrogen bonds with Ser142A, Glu139A, and Asp228B. The interaction energy between COX-1 and alpha-patchouli alcohol (CD521903) is -6 kJ/mol (without solvent) and -15 kJ/ mol (with solvent DMSO). These theoretical data suggests alpha-patchouli alcohol as a potential inhibitor of the COX-1 enzyme. However, these observations should be investigated and confirmed using experimental evidence.

Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a cancer that arises inside of the nasopharyngeal mucosa and nasopharynx. Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) has been shown to be associated with the development of NPC. Latent Membrane Protein 1 (LMP1) function include to activate BamHI-Z Leftward Reading Frame 1 (BZLF1)-EBV. The infection tissues respond to the expansion of EBV infection by activating Poly(ADP-ribose)Polymerase-1 (PARP1). The objective of this study are to observe the expression of BZLF1 and to determine the PARP1 regulation in NPC tissues. This study used three kind of tissue slides, there are non-keratinizing carcinoma, undifferentiated carcinoma, and polyp. Tissue slides were stained by HE used for characterization of the necrotic cells such as pyknosis cells, karyorrhexsis cells, and karyolysis cells. Tissues slides were analyzed by immunohistochemical (IHC) assays using EBV BZLF1-FITC and anti-PARP1-Rhod. The percentage of necrotic cells and the expression intensity of BZLF1 and PARP1 were analyzed using statistical analysis (P-value < 0.05). This study also used correlation and regression analysis. The research showed that the number of karryorhexis cells higher than pyknosis cells and karyolysis cells in NPC and polyp tissues. The high expression intensity of BZLF1 induced the increase of expression intensity of PARP1, and the expression intensity of BZLF1 and PARP1 are not correlated with percentage of necrotic cell. Interestingly, all tissues showed the increased number of karyolysis cells but the number of pyknosis cells and karryorrhexis cells were remain low. The intensity of expression indicated that the BZLF1 induce PARP1 to repair DNA damage against EBV infection.

JTROLIS 2012, 2 (3): 132 – 135
The natural compound of black tea is used as an alternative of obesity therapies in the world; particularly, the catechin family in tea leaves which has bioactive compounds such as EC, EGC and EGCG. Their bioactivity contributes to inhibit the ligand of Insulin-Like Growth Factor I receptor (Igf-1r) binding-region to Igf-1 protein. To elucidate the inhibiton of Igf-1 expression and proliferating of Rattus norvegicus strain wistar adipose cell using black tea solution. The research used Rattus norvegicus strain wistar. After a 90-day treatment, the adipose tissues were picked up from the viscera of each experimental animal, and then the adipose tissues were embedded by paraffin. The paraffin sections were determined through immunohistochemistry with anti-Igf-1 antiserum, and were also analyzed through hematoxylin-eosin. A protein sequence of Igf-1, Igf-1r, and 3D structure of EC, EGC and EGCG from Gene Bank sites were used during in silico analysis. The sequences were aligned by BLAST program to identify the conserve and variable domain of IGF-1 protein isoforms. The 3D structures of IGF-1 and IGF-1R were constructed using Phyre program. The ligand among the 3D structures of IGF-1, IGF-1R and catechin compounds were analyzed using Hex 5.1 docking program. The data showed that the Igf-1 expression of adipose cells was reduced at 0,03 g/ml BTS and 0,045 g/ml BTS treatments. The result of BLAST analysis showed that IGF-1 (a, b, c, and d) isoforms conserved a domain from amino acid no 22 until 134; and this region was a variable region. The EGCG bound L1 domain of IGF-1R with E-total -235.3 KJ/mol which was lower than EC (-208,4 KJ/mol) and EGC (-142 KJ/mol). The total energy of IGF-1 (a, b, c, but not d isoform) which interacted with EGCG was around -223.7 KJ/mol, EC is -205.6 KJ/mol and EGC was -191.7 KJ/mol. However, EC, EGC and EGCG was only able to prevent the interaction between the L1 of IGF-1R with IGF-1 protein, but not the opposite.

Anemia is an independent prognostic factor for survival of cancer patients. Decrease oxygen capacity in blood can lead to hypoxia in tumors. Hypoxia in the tumor environment can activate the transcription factor hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α), which then transcribes many other genes involved in cell invasion, angiogenesis, anaerobic metabolism and cell cycle, such as erythropoietin (Epo) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). This study using 120 samples of breast cancer tissue (60 anemic and 60 non-anemic). Study using immunofluoresens double staining methods for HIF1α protein with VEGF and Epo with the EpoR. Samples were divided into 2 groups: anemic (Hb 5,5-10,7) and non-anemic (Hb 11 –14,9). There was a significant difference of VEGF expression (p=0,013) between patients anemic (754,4 ± 316) and nonanemic (555,1 ± 276,9). There were no significant difference of HIF1α expression in both anemi and non-anemi breast cancer patients. In anemic and non anemic group there was a negative correlation between Hb and HIF1α (p=0.000,r=- 0,522) and positive correlation between HIF1α and EPO (p=0,000; r= 0,697), HIF1α and VEGF (p=0,000; r=0,644), Epo and VEGF (p=0,001; r=0,433). In anemic and non anemic cancer patients hipoxia condition has been occurred in tumour enviroment causing no significant different of HIF1α expression, however there is a strong correllation between HIF α and Epo as well as HIF α and VEGF.Keyword : Anemi, Epo, HIF1α, hypoxia, VEGF

Mutations of human insulin and insulin receptor family can lead autosomal dominant syndrome on diabetes, fasting hyperinsulinemia, and insulin resistant. The aim of this research was to identify mutation types of hINSR gene exon 22 which mutation hot spot region. To analyze hINSR gene exon 22 of DM patient and control, we isolated DNA from their blood. DNA was then amplified by PCR using a set of primer for exon 22. PCR product was sequenced by Sequencer and nucleotide sequence analyzed by BLAST analysis. According to Gene Bank database, hINSR gene has two variant with Gene ID 3643, at chromosome 19p13.3-p13.2, and has 22 exons with mRNA 4200bp. The result of research showed that the mutation types of hINS gene exon 22 of DM patients are point mutation, single base deletion and substitution. We found mutation of single deletion at Met1295àCys1295 and Glut1300 to Gly1300, also point mutation are at Met1296 to Ser1296 and Trp1299 to Ala1299 and Met1389 to Iso1389. Because these two deletion are so close, the polypeptids sequence of these changed as frameshift mutation, normal IR has six amino acids -Met Arg Met Cys  to Trp-Glut- and DM patient has differed the five amino acids – Cys Ala Ser Ala Gly. According to the mutation of DM patient, the IR protein function against tyrosine kinase become abnormal, perhaps its were correlated with genetic syndrome of insulin resistance.

AbstractThe purpose of this study is addressed the function of Ad4BP/SF1 in developing spleen of Ad4BP/SF-1 KO mouse. I have modified the BAC-Ad4BP endogenous by homologous recombinant with modification cassette-containing tetracycline transactivator system and LacZ reporter genes to allow the expression of Ad4BP/SF1 in developing tissues and organ differentiation, regulate of Ad4BP/SF1 mechanism, and reveal the defect due to Ad4BP/SF1 deficiency. Recently studies, by immunihistochemistry of adult tissues showed that revealed coincident expressing between Ad4BP/SF-1 and lacZ, indicating the tTA system seemed to reproduces the endogenous expression of Ad4BP/SF-1, and thus likely to lacZ, Ad4BP/SF-1 in the BAC transgene was expected to be expressed in the corresponding tissues under the control of the bidirectional promoter. Interestingly, the BAC-Ad4BP-tTA transgenic mice were succeeded to up regulate the expression of Ad4BP/SF-1 at the protein level than wild type. And the fetal spleen of Tg(+);Ad4(+/+) was larger than that of the wild type, and expectedly the size of the spleen of Tg(+);Ad4(-/-) apparently recovered.

Ad4BP/SF-1 (NR5A1) was identified as a key regulator of the hypothalamus–pituitary–gonadal and –adrenal axes. Loss-of-function studies revealed that Ad4BP/SF-1 is essential for the development of these tissues and spleen. Here, we generated transgenic mouse with BAC recombinants carrying a dual promoter and Tet-off system. These recombinants have a potential to express lacZ and Ad4BP/SF-1 in the tissues where endogenous Ad4BP/SF-1 is expressed. However, protein level of Ad4BP/SF-1 varied among the tissues of the transgenic mice and probably thereby the target tissues are affected differentially. The BAC-transgenic mice were applied to rescue Ad4BP/SF-1 KO mouse. Interestingly, the mice successfully rescued the gonad and spleen but failed to rescue the adrenal gland. This variation might be dependent on in part the protein expression levels among the tissues and in part on differential sensitivities to the gene dosage.2006 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

Clinically, type 1 diabetes may presents as type 2 diabetes which sometimes not easily differentiated. Perhaps only autoimmune markers of beta -cells destruction could differentiate those two clinical conditions. Due to extremely high cost ( $ 150/test), examination of anti-glutamic acid decarboxylase-65 auto-antibodies (anti-GAD65Abs) may not be routinely performed in most, if not all, clinical laboratories in Indonesia. Hence, the production of anti-GAD65 Abs reagent in Indonesia may reduce the cost and improve the quality of diabetes care in Indonesia. We produce reagent to detect anti-GAD65-Abs using bovine brain tissue as source of GAD enzyme in 3 steps. Step 1, isolation, purification of GAD65 from bovine brain tissue and used it as a primary antigen to stimulate the generation of anti-GAD65 antibodies in Wistar rat. Step 2, the purified GAD65 antibodies were than used as a secondary antibody to induce the production of anti-anti-GAD65-antibodies in Wistar rat and rabbit. Step 3. Labeling anti-antiGAD65-antibodies with alkaline phoshpatase and peroxidase, and detecting anti-GAD65Abs previously detected using commercial kit. The anti-anti-GAD65-antibodies reagent produced in our laboratories successfully identify anti-GAD65-Abs of type 1 diabetic patients previously detected with commercial reagent.
