p53 codon 72 polymorphism in bladder cancer-No evidence of association with increased risk or invasiveness
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 ...
The SOCS-1 gene methylation in chronic myeloid leukemia patients
(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 ...
Endothelial progenitor cells display clonal restriction in multiple myeloma
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2006)
Background: In multiple myeloma (MM), increased neoangiogenesis contributes to tumor growth and disease progression. Increased levels of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) contribute to neoangiogenesis in MM, and, ...
Expression of IFITM1 in chronic myeloid leukemia patients
We investigated the peripheral blood gene expression profile of interferon induced transmembrane protein 1 (IFITM1) in sixty chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients classified according to new prognostic score (NPS). IFITM1 ...
Evidence from autoimmune thyroiditis of skewed X-chromosome inactivation in female predisposition to autoimmunity
(Nature Publishing Group, 2006)
The etiologic factors in the development of autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITDs) are not fully understood. We investigated the role of skewed X-chromosome inactivation (XCI) mosaicism in female predisposition to AITDs. One ...
MDM2 T309G polymorphism is associated with bladder cancer
(International Institute of Anticancer Research, 2006)
Recently, a functional T to G polymorphism at nucleotide 309 in the promoter region of the MDM2 gene (rs: 2279744, SNP 309) has been identified. This polymorphism has an impact on the expression of the MDM2 gene, which is ...
