Latest Research Achievements (Biotechnology & Enzyme kinetics):
AChE Kinetics as a parameter for the diagnosis and monitoring the Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack) In vertebrate the MI was produced by ISO-HCl ( 85 mg./kg body wt) The infracted cardiac muscle cannot sustain cardiac function and in AMI the ischemic muscles get injury and finally muscle degenerate. Heart muscles are richly innervated with nerves.. Due to the injury and degeneration of the cardiac muscles large numbers of enzymes are released, but recently CK-MB, LDH &AST have been used as marker enzymes in the diagnosis of MI in human beings, in addition to ECG tracings. CK-MB is tissue specific enzyme that reaches to the maximum level during 14-36 hours. Troponin protein is exclusive test for MI even if ECG tracings are not positive. During necrosis of myocardium, which is richly innervated by cholinergic nerves, the enzyme AChE may also be released and can be taken as parameter for the diagnosis of MI. Present findings suggest that ISO-HCl has inhibitory power for serum AChE in mammals followed by Amphibia and Aves. On comparison with serum of MI patients similar amount of AChE inhibition was noticed. Further, increase in Km was recorded in experimental animals as well as MI patients, indicating decrease in AChE activity. Thus estimation of Km and Vmax of AChE is also help to ascertain the degree of damage during the course of myocardial infarction.
