For the purpose of this assignment, I researched an article titled, “The Role of DJ-1 in the Pathogenesis of Endometriosis” by Priyanka Rai and Sisinthy Shivajj. The article discusses many components in which are relevant to the disease, endometriosis. Endometriosis is a disease among women in which causes infertility and severe pelvic pain along with other health concerns. It is seen to occur within 10% of woman whom are of a reproductive or sexually-active age.

Many of these proteins that are seen in cases of endometriosis are also present in processes such as: angiogenesis, immune dysfunction, proliferation, and adhesion. The method to approach the study of these proteins was to study their proteomes. The scientists studied the differential expressions of proteins in the eutopic endometrium of women who had endometriosis and those whom didn’t have it. The results of the two populations were compared. Due to this being done, it was shown that a particular protein known as DJ-1, is…
