    Serologic tests for brucellosis aim to detect antibodies produced against membranous lipopolysaccharide of bacteria. Diagnostic use of this method is limited due to false positiveness. This study evaluates an alternative antigen to lipopolysaccharides (LPS), outer membrane 28-precursor-protein, of Brucella melitensis Rev1 for its diagnostic value. Omp28 precursor of B. melitensis Rev1 was cloned, expressed, and purified. 6-His and sumo epitope tags were used to tag the protein at N-termini. Omp28 gene was amplified based on the ORF sequence and cloned into a pETSUMO vector. The recombinant construct was propagated in Escherichia coli One Shot® Mach1™ cells then transformed into E. coli BL21(D3) cells for protein expression. The purified protein was studied in an indirect ELISA for diagnosis of brucellosis. Sera samples from 60 patients were screened by ELISA and the results were compared to Rose Bengal plate test. Recombinant antigen-based iELISA has given a successful outcome with the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of 87.8%, 96.2%, 96.6%, and 78.78%, respectively. In conclusion, recombinant production and purification of the immunodominant Omp28 precursor protein has been achieved successfully in a one-step process with efficient yield and can be used for diagnosis of brucellosis in humans

    Oxidative Stress Status in Childhood Obesity: A Potential Risk Predictor

    Background: Childhood obesity characterized by excessive fat in the body is one of the most serious health problems worldwide due to the social, medical, and physiological complications. Obesity and associated diseases are triggering factors for oxidative stress and inflammation. The aim of this study was to explore the possible association between childhood obesity and inflammatory and oxidative status. Material/Methods: Thirty-seven obese children and 37 healthy controls selected from among children admitted to BLIND University Paediatrics Department were included in the study. Anthropometric measurements were performed using standard methods. Glucose, lipid parameters, CRP, insulin, total oxidant status (TOS), total anti-oxidant status (TAS) levels, and total thiol levels (TTL) were measured in serum. HOMA index (HOMA-IR) were calculated. The differences between the groups were evaluated statistically using the Mann-Whitney U test. Results: Body mass index was significantly higher in the obese group (median: 28.31(p<0.001). Glucose metabolism, insulin, and HOMA-IR levels were significantly higher in the obese group (both p<0.001). Total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglyceride levels were significantly higher in the obese group (p<0.001). TAS (med: 2.5 µmol Trolox eq/L (1.7–3.3)) and TOS (med: 49.1 µmol H2 O2 eq/L (34.5–78.8)) levels and TTL (med: 0.22 mmol/L (0.16–0.26)) were significantly higher in the obese group (p=0.001). CRP levels showed positive correlation with TOS and negative correlation with TTL levels (p=0.005, r=0.473; p=0.01, r=–0.417; respectively). TTL levels exhibited negative correlation with TOS levels (p=0.03, r=–0.347). Conclusions: In conclusion, obese children were exposed to more oxidative burden than children with normal weight. Increased systemic oxidative stress induced by childhood obesity can cause development of obesity-related complications and diseases. Widely focussed studies are required on the use of oxidative parameters as early prognostic parameters in detection of obesity-related complications
