    • Evaluation of TAGLN as a diagnostic marker in breast cancer 

      Köseer, Ayşe Sedef (Bilkent University, 2018-09)
      Silecing of tumor suppressor genes via CpG hypermethylation in promoter regions is one of the frequent events occurring in different types of cancers. These genes have the potential as a diagnostic or a prognostic ...
    • Evaluation of X chromosome inactivation with respect to HLA genetic susceptibility in rheumatoid arthritis and systemic sclerosis 

      Kanaan, S. B.; Onat, O. E.; Balandraud, N.; Martin, G. V.; Nelson, J. L.; Azzouz, D. F.; Auger, I.; Arnoux, F.; Martin, M.; Roudier, J.; Ozcelik, T.; Lambert, N. C. (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Background: Autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and systemic sclerosis (SSc) are characterized by a strong genetic susceptibility from the Human Leucocyte Antigen (HLA) locus. Additionally, disorders ...
    • Extremely skewed X-chromosome inactivation patterns in women with recurrent spontaneous abortion 

      Bagislar, S.; Ustuner, I.; Cengiz, B.; Soylemez, F.; Akyerli, C. B.; Ceylaner, S.; Ceylaner, G.; Acar, A.; Ozcelik, T. (Wiley-Blackwell Publishing Asia, 2006)
      Background: The role of extremely skewed X-chromosome inactivation (XCI) has been questioned in the pathogenesis of recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) but the results obtained were conflicting. Aims: We therefore ...
    • SIP1 is downregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma by promoter hypermethylation 

      Acun, T.; Oztas, E.; Yagci, T.; Yakicier, M.C. (2011)
      Background: Smad interacting protein-1 is a transcription factor that is implicated in transforming growth factor-β/bone morphogenetic protein signaling and a repressor of E-cadherin and human telomerase reverse transcriptase. ...
    • The SOCS-1 gene methylation in chronic myeloid leukemia patients 

      Hatirnaz, O.; Ure, U.; Ar, C.; Akyerli, C.; Soysal, T.; Ferhanoǧlu, B.; Özçelik, T.; Ozbek, U. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2007)
      SOCS-1, an important protein in the JAK/STAT pathway, has a role in the down stream of BCR-ABL protein kinase. We investigated 56 CML patients and 16 controls for the methylation status of SOCS-1 gene promoter and Exon 2 ...
