How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Introduction
BSc in Biomedical Laboratory Sciences and MSc in Biomedical Research. Currently I am working in Extracellular Vesicles isolation from body fluids. I love science and entrepreneurship. I see my future making the bridge between industry and health R&D.

Small extracellular vesicles (sEVs), through their natural ability to interact with biological membranes and exploit endogenous processing pathways to convey biological information, are quintessential for the delivery of therapeutically relevant compounds, such as microRNAs (miRNAs) and proteins. Here, we used a fluorescently‐labelled miRNA to quan...

Background: In 1987, three unrelated English families were reported with a putative blood subgroup called Apae. Swedish researchers later found evidence leading to abolishment of the Apae subgroup and establishment instead of the FORS blood group system (System 31 - ISBT, 2012). It is important to know the prevalence of antibodies in order to make...

Background: The Forssman antigen (FORS1 Ag) is expressed on human red blood cells (RBCs). We investigated its presence on RBCs from Palestinian subjects and Swedish subjects by serological testing and by sequencing part of exon 7 of the GBGT1 gene, which encodes Forssman synthase. Materials and Methods: Blood samples from Palestinian subjects (n =...
Article
In 2012, the FORS system was accepted by the International Society of Blood Transfusion as the 31st blood group system. Forssman (Fs) antigen (Ag) expression is most commonly found on sheep red blood cells (RBC) but rare in human RBC. Anti-Fs antibodies (Ab) are naturally occurring in human sera and are predominantly IgM but they can also be IgG. T...
Article
As mediators of intercellular communication, extracellular vesicles containing molecular cargo such as microRNAs, are secreted by cells and taken up by recipient cells to influence their cellular phenotype and function. Here, we report that cardiac stress-induced differential microRNA content, with miR-200c-3p being one of the most enriched, in car...
