      In the past decade, extracellular vesicles (EVs) have been recognized as potent vehicles of intercellular communication, both in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. This is due to their capacity to transfer proteins, lipids and ...
    • Expression of IFITM1 in chronic myeloid leukemia patients 

      Akyerli, C. B.; Beksac, M.; Holko, M.; Frevel, M.; Dalva, K.; Özbek, U.; Soydan, E.; Özcan, M.; Özet, G.; İlhan, O.; Gürman, G.; Akan, H.; Williams, B. R. G.; Özçelik, T. (Elsevier, 2005)
      We investigated the peripheral blood gene expression profile of interferon induced transmembrane protein 1 (IFITM1) in sixty chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients classified according to new prognostic score (NPS). IFITM1 ...
    • In vitro biocompatibility of plasma-aided surface-modified 316L stainless steel for intracoronary stents 

      Bayram, C.; Mizrak, A.K.; Aktürk, S.; Kurşaklioǧlu H.; Iyisoy, A.; Ifran, A.; Denkbaş, E.B. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2010)
