Dr. Naseem Hasan Ansari, B.S. (1970), M.S. (1972), Ph.D. (1986), Professor, Department of Human Biological Chemistry and Genetics, The University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, Texas, is deeply involved to understand the biochemical mechanism(s) of oxidative pathologies such as senile cataract, Age-Related Macular Degeneration and secondary complications of diabetes. Her research has shown that lipid peroxidation end products are the toxic mediators in the above-mentioned oxidative pathologies. The presence of an a-b unsaturated double bond and aldehyde group impart reactivity to these lipid derived aldehydes, due to which they readily conjugate the protein having a reactive cysteine, histidine or epsilon amino group. Cytoskeletal proteins such as actin, vimentin and tubulin, and gap junction proteins such as connexins are specifically susceptible to modification by HNE and HHE which could be critical in the development of oxidative pathologies. She and her group have found that HNE can be metabolized by conjugation with GSH (catalyzed by glutathione-S-transferase), Using antisense and SiRNA specific to various isozymes of ALDH as well as knock out mice, her studies show that ALDH1 is the main isozyme involved in the oxidation of HNE. Structural and kinetic studies on ALDH1 are underway to develop specific activators of this enzyme an approach which will be therapeutic towards preventing oxidative pathologies.
