    • Asymmetric dimethylarginine concentrations are elevated in women with gestational diabetes 

      Akturk, M.; Altinova, A.; Mert I.; Dincel, A.; Sargin, A.; Buyukkagnici, U.; Arslan, M.; Danisman, N. (2010)
      As shown in the previous studies, asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is related to endothelial dysfunction, whereas high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hCRP) is the marker of inflammation. In our study, we investigated ADMA, ...

S.; Stoorvogel, W.; Stukelj, R.; Grein V. D. S.G.; Helena,ü V. M.; Wauben, M. H. M.; De Wever, O. (Taylor & Francis, 2015)
      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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Medicalization discourse and modernity: contested meanings over childbirth in contemporary Turkey 

      Cindoglu, D.; Cengiz, F. S. (Taylor & Francis Inc., 2010)
      In this article, we explore the increasing medicalization of birth and the surge in Caesarean sections in order to examine how this phenomenon relates to the dominant modernization discourse on women's lives in contemporary ...
    • Na+/I-symporter and type 3 iodothyronine deiodinase gene expression in amniotic membrane and placenta and its relationship to maternal thyroid hormones 

      Akturk, M.; Oruc, A.S.; Danisman, N.; Erkek, S.; Buyukkagnici, U.; Unlu, E.; Tazebay, U.H. (2013)
      Placental type 3 iodothyronine deiodinase (D3) potentially protects the fetus from the elevated maternal thyroid hormones. Na+/I- symporter (NIS) is a plasma membrane glycoprotein, which mediates active iodide uptake. Our ...

    • Skewed X chromosome inactivation in blood cells of women with scleroderma 

      Özbalkan, Z.; Baǧişlar, S.; Kiraz, S.; Akyerli, C. B.; Özer H. T. E.; Yavuz, Ş.; Birlik, A. M.; Çalgüneri, M.; Özçelik, T. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2005)
      Objective. Scleroderma (SSc) is an autoimmune disease of unknown etiology. The disease is 3-8 times more frequent in women than in men. The role of X chromosome inactivation (XCI) in the predisposition of women to autoimmunity ...
