Research Interests

1- Stem cell proliferation related studies

  • A- Role of Osteoblasts in Stem Cell Proliferation
    Hematopoiesis is an exquisitely regulated physiological process, which results in the appropriate production of blood cells throughout life. Over the past four decades our understanding of the cellular and molecular basis of hematopoietic regulation has become quite sophisticated. Several hematopoietic growth factor polypeptide hormones have been identified through molecular cloning, which play a key role in this process. In many respect, our current dynamic model of hematopoietic is the leading paradigm in molecular histology. It has established a framework to apply to cell differentiation and renewal in diverse tissue, including liver, skin and intestinal epithelium. Despite these advances, the most important details of the cellular and molecular regulation of stem cell self- renewal and differentiation remain elusive. We are currently addressing these issues through the following:
  1. Role of permissive and inductive microenvironment in bone marrow in context to proliferation of stem cell
  2. Role of osteoblast in the proliferation of stem cell
  • B- Stem Cell and its Regenerative Potential

2- Construction of Novel & New fusion Toxin (Immunotoxins)

Recombinant immunotoxins are antibody-toxin chimeric molecules that kill cancer cells via binding to a surface antigen, internalization and delivery of the toxin moiety to the cell cytosol. In the cytosol, toxins catalytically inhibit a critical cell function and cause cell death. The antibody portion of the chimera targets antigens that are expressed preferentially on the surface of cancer cells. Truncated versions of either diphtheria toxin (DT) or Pseudomonas exotoxin (PE) can be used to construct fusions with cDNAs encoding antibody fragments or cell- binding ligands. Presently, in our lab we have designed several novel constrct which are truncated version of known immunotoxins and novel humanized toxin utilizing the pre-apoptoctic segment of human origin to combat the problems associates with the immnogenicity of the toxin fragment and the non-targeted toxicity noted while treating certain cancers.

3- Cloning & Expression of Therapeutic Protein that have Clinical Importance

4- Development of MAB against EpCAM for Targeting Retinoblastoma with Nanoparticle

5- Biochemical and Molecular Characterization of membrane Protein Receptor) Presently our interest is in “Identification and Purification of Methotrexate Binding protein from the T Lymphocytes

6- Nanotechnology Using synthetic biodegradable micro-molecules and biodegradable biopolymer as scaffold for stem cell differentiation into cardiac tissue for heart injury repair.
