    Abstract: Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an antibody-mediated autoimmune neuromuscular disease, leading to skeletal muscle weakness. The autoantibodies are against acetylcholine receptor (AChR) of the muscle membrane localized at the neuromuscular junction. The early diagnosis of MG is a key factorfor the advanced medical practice, but, it still remains challengi... Show More

    Abstract: Xanthine oxidase is one of the most useful molybdenum containing enzymes, which catalyzes a wide range of purine derivative heterocyclic substrates. In order for the interaction between the reactants to take place, the substrates are expected to enter the binding pocket and attain a proper orientation with the help of binding pocket amino acid resi...

    Abstract: The use of plants in traditional medicines has been a common practice in the medical care of many human cultures and dates back to several thousands of years and pre-dates the introduction of antibiotics and other related drugs due to their great source of phytochemicals which are exploited in all medical systems. These study was aimed at character... Show More
