    • DNA repair gene polymorphisms and bladder cancer susceptibility in a Turkish population 

      Karahalil, B.; Kocabas, N. A.; Özçelik, T. (International Institute of Anticancer Research, 2006)
      Background: Occupational exposure and life style preferences, such as smoking are the main known environmental susceptibility factors for bladder cancer. A growing list of chemicals has been shown to induce oxidative DNA ...
    • Increased frequency of extremely skewed X chromosome inactivation in juvenile idiopathic arthritis 

      Uz, E.; Mustafa, C.; Topaloglu, R.; Bilginer, Y.; Dursun, A.; Kasapcopur, O.; Ozen, S.; Bakkaloglu, A.; Ozcelik, T. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2009)
      Objective. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is a childhood rheumatic disease of unknown etiology. Two subgroups of JIA, i.e., oligoarticular and polyarticular, are thought to have an autoimmune component, and show a ...
    • p53 codon 72 polymorphism in bladder cancer-No evidence of association with increased risk or invasiveness 

      Törüner, G. A.; Uçar, A.; Tez, M.; Çetinkaya, M.; Özen, H.; Özçelik, T. (Springer, 2001)
      We studied the effect of the p53 gene Arg72Pro polymorphism on bladder cancer susceptibility in a case control study of 121 bladder cancer patients and 114 age-sex matched controls to determine whether this polymorphism ...
    • PPAR-alpha L162V polymorphism in human hepatocellular carcinoma 

      Koytak, E.S.; Mizrak, D.; Bektaş, M.; Verdi H.; Ergül, A.A.; Idilman, R.; Çinar, K.; Yurdaydin, C.; Ersöz, S.; Karayalçin, K.; Uzunalimoǧlu Ö.; Bozkaya H. (2008)
      Background/aims: Several lines of evidence suggest that peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha may be involved in hepatocarcinogenesis. L162V polymorphism of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha ...
    • Skewed X-chromosome inactivation in scleroderma 

      Uz, E.; Loubiere, L. S.; Gadi, V. K.; Ozbalkan, Z.; Stewart, J.; Nelson, J. L.; Ozcelik, T. (Springer New York, 2008)
      Scleroderma is a female-prevalent autoimmune disease of unclear etiology. Two fundamental gender differences, skewed X-chromosome inactivation (XCI) and pregnancy-related microchimerism, have been implicated in scleroderma. ...
    • Turkish population data on the HLA-DQα, LDLR, GYPA, HBGG, D7S8, and GC loci 

      Vural, B.; Atlioǧlu, E.; Kolusayin, Ö.; Togan, I.; Büyükdevrim, S.; Özçelik, T. (Springer, 1998)
      We have determined the allele and genotype frequencies of six PCR-based genetic markers HLA-DQα, LDLR, GYPA, HBGG, D7S8 and GC in the Turkish population (n = 361 for HLA-DQα, and n = 260 for PM). All loci meet Hardy- ...
