A Study on the Relationship between Heat Shock Proteins and Serum Biochemical Parameters in Clinically Healthy Bactrian Camels

 This study was undertaken to investigate the HSPs levels in serum of different ages and sexes of clinically healthy Bactrian camels and their correlation with some biochemical parameters. Twenty-six two-humped adult camels in two sexes (male=18 and female=8), aged between 2 and 11 years old (2-4 years old=8, 5-8 years old=9, and 9-11 years old=9), were chosen for this study. Serum levels of HSP 30, HSP 40, HSP 70, and HSP 90 were measured by a quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay using commercial camel-specific kits. There were no significant differences in the concentration of heat shock proteins (HSP 90, HSP 40, HSP70, and HSP 30) in two sexes and different age groups of clinically healthy Bactrian camels (Camelus bactrianus). However, there was a significant difference in the concentration of creatinine and sodium in two sexes and in the concentration of urea, albumin, and magnesium in different age groups of clinically healthy Bactrian camels (Camelus bactrianus).
