      Cakan G.; Bezirci F.B.; Kacka, A.; Cesur, S.; Aksaray, S.; Tezeren, D.; Saka, D.; Ahmed, K. (2008)
      This study was performed to evaluate commercial brucella immunoglobulin G and M-enzymelinked immunosorbent assay (IgG and IgM ELISA) kits for the diagnosis of human brucellosis and to suggest a candidate prognostic marker ...
    • 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, ...
    • Comparison of original EuroSCORE, EuroSCORE II and STS risk models in a Turkish cardiac surgical cohort 

      Kunt, A.G.; Kurtcephe, M.; Hidiroglu, M.; Cetin L.; Kucuker, A.; Bakuy V.; Ruchan Akar, A.; Sener, E. (2013)
      OBJECTIVESThe aim of this study was to compare additive and logistic European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation (EuroSCORE), EuroSCORE II and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) models in calculating mortality ...
    • Expression of CK-19 and CEA mRNA in peripheral blood of gastric cancer patients 

      Kutun, S.; Celik, A.; Cem Kockar, M.; Erkorkmaz, U.; Eroǧlu, A.; Cetin, A.; Erkosar, B.; Yakicier, C. (2010)
      Aim: To investigate the clinical and pathological relevance of detection of circulating tumor cells (CTC) in the peripheral blood of gastric carcinoma patients before operation. Patients and Methods: Fifty patients with ...
    • Extreme clonality in lymphoblastoid cell lines with implications for allele specific expression analyses 

      Plagnol V.; Uz, E.; Wallace, C.; Stevens H.; Clayton, D.; Ozcelik, T.; Todd J.A. (2008)
      Lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCL) are being actively and extensively used to examine the expression of specific genes and (genome-wide expression profiles, including allele specific expression assays. However, it has recently ...
    • The grammar of anger: Mapping the computational architecture of a recalibrational emotion 

      Sell A.; Sznycer D.; Al-Shawaf L.; Lim J.; Krauss A.; Feldman A.; Rascanu R.; Sugiyama L.; Cosmides L.; Tooby J. (Elsevier B.V., 2017)
      According to the recalibrational theory of anger, anger is a computationally complex cognitive system that evolved to bargain for better treatment. Anger coordinates facial expressions, vocal changes, verbal arguments, the ...
    • Mdm2 Snp309 G allele displays high frequency and inverse correlation with somatic P53 mutations in hepatocellular carcinoma 

      Acun T.; Terzioǧlu-Kara, E.; Konu, O.; Ozturk, M.; Yakicier, M. C. (Elsevier, 2010)
      Loss of function of the p53 protein, which may occur through a range of molecular events, is critical in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) evolution. MDM2, an oncogene, acts as a major regulator of the p53 protein. A polymorphism ...
    • De novo insertions and deletions of predominantly paternal origin are associated with autism spectrum disorder 

      Dong, S.; Walker, M.F.; Carriero, N.J.; DiCola, M.; Willsey, A.; Ye, A.Y.; Waqar, Z.; Gonzalez L.E.; Overton J.D.; Frahm, S.; Keaney J.F.; III, Teran, N.A.; Dea J.; Mandell J.D.; HusBal V.; Sullivan, C.A.; DiLullo, N.M.; Khalil, R.O.; Gockley J.; Yuksel, Z.; Sertel, S.M.; Ercan-Sencicek, A.G.; Gupta, A.R.; Mane, S.M.; Sheldon, M.; Brooks, A.I.; Roeder, K.; Devlin, B.; State, M.W.; Wei L.; Sanders, S.J. (Elsevier, 2014)
      Whole-exome sequencing (WES) studies have demonstrated the contribution of de novo loss-of-function single-nucleotide variants (SNVs) to autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, challenges in the reliable detection of de ...
    • Perisylvian GABA levels in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder 

      Atagün, M. İ.; Şıkoglu, M. E.; Soykan, Ç.; Can, S. S.; Ulusoy-Kaymak S.; Çayköylü, A.; Algın O.; Phillips, M. L.; Öngür, D.; Moore, C. M. (Elsevier Ireland Ltd, 2017)
      The aim of this study is to measure GABA levels of perisylvian cortices in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder patients, using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS). Patients with schizophrenia (n = 25), bipolar ...
