Renovascular Mistaken as Essential Hypertension due to Giant Hepatic Hydatid: A Rare Treatable Entity

Renovascular hypertension is an unusual but treatable cause of refractory hypertension that is infrequently caused by external compression of the renal vasculature by a giant hydatid cyst, a parasitic infection, caused by Echinococcus granulosus in its larval stage which is endemic in many parts of the world including Saudi Arabia. The disease can produce a cyst in almost every...

Dry Friction Clutch Disc of an Automobile under Transient Thermal Load: A Comparison of Friction Lining Materials

This paper shows the comparison of temperatures produced in a dry friction clutch disc with different materials during a single engagement to assist in clutch plate design and analysis. A study of usage of different materials for friction lining of clutch disc is required, which will provide improved performance and enhanced life. This investigation is modelled mathematically and...

Caristi’s Fixed Point Theorem and Subrahmanyam’s Fixed Point Theorem in -Generalized Metric Spaces

We discuss the completeness of -generalized metric spaces in the sense of Branciari. We also prove generalizations of Subrahmanyam’s and Caristi’s fixed point theorem.

Distance-Based and Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks

A wireless sensor network (WSN) comprises small sensor nodes with limited energy capabilities. The power constraints of WSNs necessitate efficient energy utilization to extend the overall network lifetime of these networks. We propose a distance-based and low-energy adaptive clustering (DISCPLN) protocol to streamline the green issue of efficient energy utilization in WSNs. We...

Dielectric properties of (Zn) x /CuTl-1223 nanoparticle-superconductor composites

Zinc (Zn) nanoparticles and (Cu0.5Tl0.5)Ba2Ca2Cu3O10−δ (CuTl-1223) superconducting phase were prepared separately by sol-gel and solid-state reaction methods, respectively. Zn nanoparticles were added in CuTl-1223 superconducting matrix with different weight percentage during the final sintering process to obtain (Zn) x /CuTl-1223 (x = 02-4 wt%) nanoparticle-superconductor...

Sorokiniol: a new enzymes inhibitory metabolite from fungal endophyte Bipolaris sorokiniana LK12

Background Medicinal plants harboring endophytic fungi could carry significant potential for producing bioactive secondary metabolites. Endophytic fungi serve as alternate source of interesting compounds in their natural and modified synthetic forms to treat different diseases. In this regard, endophytic microflora associated with alkaloid-rich medicinal plants Rhazya stricta is...

Frequency distribution of genes encoding aminoglycoside modifying enzymes in uropathogenic E. coli isolated from Iranian hospital

BackgroundEscherichia coli is considered as the most common cause of urinary tract infection (UTI) and acquired multiple resistances to a wide range of antibiotics such as aminoglycosides. Enzymatic alteration of aminoglycosides (AMEs) by aminoglycoside- modifying enzymes is the main mechanism of resistance to these antibiotics in E. coli. The aim of this study was detection and...

A Novel Role for D-Alanylation of Lipoteichoic Acid of Enterococcus faecalis in Urinary Tract Infection

Background Enterococci are the third most common cause of healthcare-associated infections, which include urinary tract infections, bacteremia and endocarditis. Cell-surface structures such as lipoteichoic acid (LTA) have been poorly examined in E. faecalis, especially with respect to urinary tract infections (UTIs). The dlt operon is responsible for the D-alanylation of LTA and...

Inhibitory effect of kaolin minerals compound against hepatitis C virus in Huh-7 cell lines

Background Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is estimated to infect 200 million individuals in the globe, including approximately 10 million in Pakistan causing both acute and chronic hepatitis. The standard treatment against HCV is pegylated interferon therapy in combination with a nucleoside analogue ribavirin. In addition, several herbal extracts and phytochemicals derivatives are used...
