- Serum butyrylcholinesterase in type 2 diabetes mellitus: a biochemical and bioinformatics approach

The results are presented in Table 1. There was a negative correlation between serum total cholesterol and butyrylcholinesterase (-0.407; p < 0.05) and between serum LDL cholesterol and butyrylcholinesterase (-0.435; p < 0.05). There was no statistically significant correlation among the other biochemical parameters.

Both methods of tree construction gave similar dendrograms, except for an inversion in the position of Sus scrofa (M62778) and Oryctolagus cuniculus (M62779) between Fitch and Margoliash, and maximum parsimony methods (Figs 1, 2). There were two main subdivisions in the phylogenetic tree, with homo sapiens proteins together, and a pairing together of rattus (A5244349, NM_022942), Felicus catus (AF053483), Panthera tigris (AF053485), and Oryctolagus cunniculus (X52092, X53091)
