Relationship of Depression and Assertiveness in Normal Population and Depressed Individuals
Ms. Bushra Mueen,Ms. Maryam Khurshid,Dr. Ishtiaq Hassan
Internet Journal of Medical Update - EJOURNAL , 2006,
Abstract: The present study is aimed at exploring the relationship between depression and self-assertiveness. Sample of the study consisted of 100 people (men = 50, women = 50), who were taken from different offices, houses, and hospitals. Their age ranged between 18 to 50 years, and education level was at least middle standard and above. Their marital status was of both types i.e. married and unmarried. They belonged to lower and middle socio-economic status. For the measurement of depression and self-assertiveness Urdu translation of Beck Depression Inventory (1996) and scale of self-assertiveness were used. Results indicated highly significant relationship between depression and self-assertiveness. The findings of the results also show that men are more assertive than women. They further show that low education makes a person non-assertive and depressed. Findings further reveal that men and women both can equally be the victim of depression in their life. Findings also suggest that married people are more assertive in comparison with unmarried people.
Marital Adjustment, Stress and Depression among Working and Non-Working Married Women
Ms. Hina Ahmed Hashmi,Ms. Maryam Khurshid,Dr. Ishtiaq Hassan
Internet Journal of Medical Update - EJOURNAL , 2007,
Abstract: The present study is aimed at exploring the relationship between marital adjustment, stress and depression. Sample of the study consisted of 150 working and non-working married women (working married women = 75, non-working married women = 75). Their age ranged between 18 to 50 years. Their education was at least gradation and above. They belong to middle and high socio-economic status. Urdu Translation of Dyadic Adjustment Scale (2000), Beck Depression Inventory (1996) and Stress Scale (1991) were used. Results indicated highly significant relationship between marital adjustment, depression and stress. The findings of the results also show that working married women have to face more problems in their married life as compared to non-working married women. The results further show that highly educated working and non-working married women can perform well in their married life and they are free from depression as compared to educated working and non-working married women.
Previously described sequence variant in CDK5RAP2 gene in a Pakistani family with autosomal recessive primary microcephaly

Abstract: All coding exons and exon/intron splice junctions of CDK5RAP2 gene were sequenced in affected and normal individuals of Pakistani MCPH family of Kashmiri origin, which showed linkage to MCPH3 locus on chromosome 9q33.2.A previously described nonsense mutation [243 T>A (S81X)] in exon 4 of CDK5RAP2 gene has been identified in the Pakistani family, presented here, with MCPH Phenotype. Genomic and cDNA sequence comparison revealed that the exact nomenclature for this mutation is 246 T>A (Y82X).Recurrent observation of Y82X mutation in CDK5RAP2 gene in this Pakistani family may be a sign of confinement of a rare ancestral haplotype carrying this pathogenic variant within Northern Pakistani population, as this has not been reported in any other population.Autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH), a rare neurodevelopmental disorder, is characterized by reduced head circumference of at least 4 standard deviations below the age- and sex- related population specific means; associated with non progressive mental retardation of variable degree but no other neurological deficit. In individuals with MCPH phenotype, the brain weight is markedly reduced and the cerebral cortex is disproportionately small with no major abnormalities in cortical architecture [1,2]. MCPH is genetically heterogeneous with six loci (MCPH1–MCPH6) mapped to date [3-8] while four of the corresponding genes [Microcephalin (MIM-607117) at MCPH1, CDK5RAP2 (MIM-608201) at MCPH3, ASPM (MIM-605481) at MCPH5 and CENPJ (MIM-609279) at MCPH6] have been identified [9-11].The MCPH5 is most prevalent in patients with primary microcephaly world wide and at least 30 pathogenic sequence variants in the corresponding gene ASPM (abnormal spindle like microcephaly associated) are known to date without any significant correlation between position of mutation and severity of microcephaly [12-16]. ASPM has preferential expression in neuroepithelium of the lateral ventricles during neurogenic cycle and its various isofo
Estimating Ethnic Identities’ Importance among Iranian Tribes
Maryam Cheheltani,Nurdeng Deuraseh,Zaid Ahmad,MS Sabran
Asian Social Science , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v8n11p58
Abstract: Unappreciation and inattention to ethnic identity weakens unity, and this is a threat for national integrity and solidarity in culturally diverse societies. For this reason, governments and authorities try to strengthen national integrity through utilizing local values. This study rates local values’ Importance among the minorities that settled in Tehran through a questionnaire. The city of Tehran as the capital and largest city in Iran is one of the main immigrant receiving areas in the world with 31% reception of immigrants. This research validated the results of the questionnaire through in-depth interview with Iranian cultural experts. Evidently, paying attention to ethnic identity establishes a tradition which will continue in history for the later generations. Moreover, attention to ethnic identity can stimulate people’s patriotism. This paper suggests that majority of Iranian groups show interest in local values’ Importance. The interest of different tribes in their own ethnic identity can has tremendously important roles in implementing or not implementing major plans and long-term cultural programs.
Assessing Biomass Expansion Factor of Birch Tree Betula utilis D. DON  [PDF]
Khurshid Alam, Syed Moazzam Nizami
Open Journal of Forestry (OJF) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojf.2014.43024

Biomass is the component of living organism and mostly obtained from plants, animals, insects and the residue of all the mentioned organisms. Biomass is the key source of energy present in the form of organic matter. The study aimed to find out biomass and its variation in each component of Betula utilis D. Don (Birch Tree) with varying diameter at Kalam forest division Swat, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) province, Pakistan. The biomass of different components was determined by non-destructive methods. Overall, 30 trees were selected from different diameter classes viz a viz up to 10, 11 - 20 and greater than 20 cm. Ten trees were selected from each class. The diameter of stem and large branches and their length were measured in the field. Later, the volumes of stem and branches were calculated and converted into biomass. The study revealed that stem contributes 42.65% biomass followed by large and sub branches as 39.22% and 13.54% respectively. Leaves contribute 4.59% only. The above tree biomass contribution by different components was arranged as stem was greater than large branches; these were greater than sub branches and the lowest was in leaves. The total above ground biomass of single tree was 20.59, 58.041 and 197.214 kg·tree-1 respectively for diameter up to 10, 11 - 20 and greater than 20 cm. The averaged biomass in all diameter classes was 91.95 ± 93.064 kg·tree-1. The total biomass of single tree of diameter class up to 10, 11 - 20 and greater than 20 cm was 24.71, 69.649 and 236 kg respectively. The below ground biomass of single tree of diameter class

Isolation Identification of Cysteine Protease Cathepsin s From Breast Cancerous Tissue
Rukhshan Khurshid
Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , 2000,
Abstract: There is an increasing evidence for the role of cysteine proteases cathepsin B, L and S in cancer progression. Cathepsin S was identified and isolation from breast cancerous tissue by using the techniques of electrophoresis and chromatography (Gel filtration and reverse phase HPLC). Purity of cathepsin have been observed by 8-25 per cent polyacrylamide gradient gel on phast system which gave a single band of approximately 25,000 dalton. Charge gel electrophoresis on 10 per cent polyacrylamide gel showed the neutrality of cathepsin.

Rukhshan Khurshid
Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences , 2001,
Abstract: Primary structure of human granzyme H was aligned with cathepsin G and granzyme B. Besides, the 3D model of granzyme H was also constructed using the crystal co-ordinates of human cathepsin G. The active site of granzyme was predicted and mode of binding with substrate was discussed in the light of constructed model.
