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 ...
Somatic mosaicism for a MECP2 mutation associated with classic Rett syndrome in a boy
(Nature Publishing, 2002)
Rett syndrome is a severe neurodevelopmental disorder that arises from mutations in the X-linked MECP2 gene. It is almost exclusively seen in girls due to the predominant occurrence of the mutations on the paternal ...
Effect of six weeks aerobic training upon blood trace metals levels
This study was carried out to investigate the effects of 6-week aerobic exercise program upon blood Zn and Cu levels. There were 12 male university students with an average age of 21.67+/-0.89 years and no regular training ...
An investigation of microRNAs mapping to breast cancer related genomic gain and loss regions
Various regions of amplification or loss are observed in breast tumors as a manifestation of genomic instability. To date, numerous oncogenes or tumor suppressors on some of these regions have been characterized. An ...

Frequent and specific immunity to the embryonal stem cell-associated antigen SOX2 in patients with monoclonal gammopathy
(Rockefeller University Press, 2007)
Specific targets of cellular immunity in human premalignancy are largely unknown. Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) represents a precursor lesion to myeloma (MM). We show that antigenic targets of ...
DNA repair gene polymorphisms and bladder cancer susceptibility in a Turkish population
(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 ...
Lack of association between RNASEL Arg462Gln variant and the risk of breast cancer
(International Institute of Anticancer Research, 2004)
Background: The RNASEL G1385A variant was recently found to be implicated in the development of prostate cancer. Considering the function of RNase L and the pleiotropic effects of mutations associated with cancer, we sought ...
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, ...
