The various types of descriptors such as ionization energy, molecular hardness, electrophilicity, frontier molecular orbital energies together with electron densities of each atom for the optimized geometries of the molecule of different polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were estimated by employing on ab-initio method expressed by Hartree – Fock (HF) model performed at the (3-21G) level of theory. After that these theoretical parametrs were related to the activity carcinogenity of these compounds as carcinogenic agents. The results showed that two factors can be related to carcinogenity of these compounds; the first one is the carbon atoms of low electron densities (i.e the position of electrophilic atoms), the second is the hardness of these compounds.
We have also used electron density to highlight the possible strengths of interactions of PAHs with DNA of living cells. On the bases that the main metabolic pathway for activation of these compounds involves formation of bay-region diol epoxide, then, the benzylic carbocations generated from these electrophilic diol epoxide by opening of the epoxide ring are capable of forming covalent adducts with the nucleophilic site in DNA which represent the main factors of carcinogenity of these compounds since adduct is accepted as a critical step in the mechanism by which (PAHs) can cause a genetic mutation resulting inductions of cancer.

The influence of mode suppression ratio on the dynamics of semiconductor laser will be investigated in this paper, especially in a high bit rate optical communication. An optical communication network of fiber length of 50 km was established, with semiconductor laser modulated at 10(Gbps). Mode suppression ratio of more than 20 dB was an optimum value for a laser diode to be considered as a single mode laser. We have taken into account in this study the following factors namely; the number of longitudinal modes, the relative intensity noise, laser mode linewidth, and chirping. The result showed that, the quality factor and bit error rates were affected by the mode suppression ratio. Relative intensity noise of (-100 dB/Hz) had an extreme drop in the received power and more fluctuations were found in the power output spectra. Intramodal distortion was observed in the optical layout system when chirping was considered in the laser characteristic.

This study is concerned with the preparation of cold and boiled aqueous extracts from the fruits of both Phaseolus Vulgaris and Vigna Sinensis plants. Then isolating and studying the active proteinous compounds from these extracts using different biochemical techniques. Precipitation of the proteinous part from each extract was was a ccomplished by cold acetone precipitation method.
Two compounds (A) and (B) had been isolated from gel filtration chromatography of cold and boiled acetone precipitate of these fruits of both plants.
The comparative molecular weights of the isolated compounds were estimated using gel filtration and found to be ranged from 1887 to 33884 daltons for all the Phaseolus Vulgaris and Vigna Sinensis.
The work also included studyingf the effect of intraperitoneal administration of these compounds (A) and (B) on certain blood biochemical parameters (glucose, cholesterol and total lipids) using a dose of 77 mg/Kg of body weight in normal and alloxan. induced diabetic mice. The results had been compared with those injected with insulin.
The proteinous compounds (A) which had been separated from (cold and boiled) of each Phaseolus Vulgaris and Vigna Sinensis led to a decrease in the level of glucose diabetic mice and also all compounds (B) for both plants. Compound (A) from cold extract of Vigna Sinensis fruit is more reduced for the glucose level (67.1%) from the other compounds and it reached to a normal level in the alloxan –induced diabetic mice when compared with normal control group.
However, proteinous compounds (A) (cold and boiled) which have been separated from each Phaseolus Vulgaris and Vigna Sinensis fruits and also the compound B (cold and boiled of Vigna Sinensis fruit) have been showed a significant decrease in the biochemical parameter (cholesterol and total lipids in the blood serum of diabetic mice). These compounds have revealed an effect similar to that of insulin, but the compound A (which was separated from cold aqueous extract of Vigna Sinensis fruit) gave a reduction effect for the total lipids level (46.83%) more than of that for insulin and the other proteinous compounds mentioned.
In conclusion, the high molecular weight compounds might be used for the treatment of diabetes mellitus instead of insulin, furthermore it could be used it in the treatment of atherosclerosis after make sure there is no side effects.

The present study was designed to demonstrate the comparative anatomical, histological study of Uvea in the eyes of two cyprinid fresh water teleost fishs Garra rufa (first species) and Chondrostoma regius (second species). Which belong to family Cyprinidae Each species differ in light intensity, in that G. rufa bottom dwelling but C. regius approximately surface dwelling. The two species omnivorous in nutritional nature.
The choroid in the two species, essentially similar in that it composed of connective tissue consist of fibers, melanocytes, sinusoid, blood vessels and nerves. On the other hand, variations appeared in the thickness and nature of these components, but the choroid was more developed in C. regius.
The distinct structures in the choroids of the two species were tapetum lucidum and argenteum layer which were more developed in C. regius. On the other hand there were variations in chotoid components intraocularly for each species. The choroid gland appeared at both sides of optic nerve in the choroid, and more developed in C. regius. The most important result in this study was the appearance of choroid fissure and falciform process in the eye of G. ruffa only. The ciliary body disappear in both species, but its position called ciliary region which was distinct in the eye of both species. The ciliary region extended between the retina and iris which composed of two portions, the first one originated from the choroid and the other from the retina. The length of ciliary region differs between the two species as well as intraocularly.
The iris showed a wide variations in the shape, thickness, length and nature of its components between the two species and intraocularly. The iris components have two origins. The first one from the choroid (iris stroma), the second from the retina which were the non pigmented ciliary cells and pigmented epithelium.We can conclude that the presence of tapetum lucidum ,argenteum layer,Choroid glands in the Choroid of both species indicate that they posses high visual acuity ,high resolution power and strong image contrast but G. ruffa have more visual power because the appearance of Chroid fissure and falciform process.
