(2012)
      Two African apes are the closest living relatives of humans: the chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) and the bonobo (Pan paniscus). Although they are similar in many respects, bonobos and chimpanzees differ strikingly in key ...
    • Choroid Plexus Papillomas in two Siblings: Case Report 

      Okay O.; Daglioglu, E.; Yakicier, C.; Uren, D.; Dalgic, A.; Ergungor F. (2009)
      Choroid plexus papilloma (CPP) is a rare, benign epithelial brain tumor of the nervous system seen particularly in infants. Familial cases are extremely uncommon. Some other form of malignant tumors was noted in the relatives ...
    • Identification of novel neutralizing single-chain antibodies against vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 

      Erdag, B.; Koray Balcioglu, B.; Ozdemir Bahadir, A.; Serhatli, M.; Kacar O.; Bahar, A.; Seker, U.O.S.; Akgun, E.; Ozkan, A.; Kilic, T.; Tamerler, C.; Baysal, K. (2011)
      Human vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its receptor (VEGFR-2/kinase domain receptor [KDR]) play a crucial role in angiogenesis, which makes the VEGFR-2 signaling pathway a major target for therapeutic applications. ...
    • Mutation in TOR1AIP1 encoding LAP1B in a form of muscular dystrophy: A novel gene related to nuclear envelopathies 

      Kayman-Kurekci G.; Talim, B.; Korkusuz P.; Sayar, N.; Sarioglu, T.; Oncel I.; Sharafi P.; Gundesli H.; Balci-Hayta, B.; Purali, N.; Serdaroglu-Oflazer P.; Topaloglu H.; Dincer P. (Elsevier Ltd, 2014)
      We performed genome-wide homozygosity mapping and mapped a novel myopathic phenotype to chromosomal region 1q25 in a consanguineous family with three affected individuals manifesting proximal and distal weakness and atrophy, ...
    • Prostate stem cell antigen is an endogenous lynx1-like prototoxin that antagonizes α7-containing nicotinic receptors and prevents programmed cell death of parasympathetic neurons
