Expression of CK-19 and CEA mRNA in peripheral blood of gastric cancer patients
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 ...
Identification of endogenous reference genes for qRT-PCR analysis in normal matched breast tumor tissues
(Cognizant Communication Corporation, 2009)
Quantitative gene expression measurements from tumor tissue are frequently compared with matched normal and/or adjacent tumor tissue expression for diagnostic marker gene selection as well as assessment of the degree of ...

De novo balanced (X;14) translocation in a patient with recurrent miscarriages: Case report
We report a 23-year-old phenotypically normal female patient who had previously suffered from recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) who found to have an X;14 trans location and a Methylene- Tetrahdrofolate-Reductase (MTHFR) ...
Muscle Hemangiomatosis presenting as a severe feature in a patient with the pten mutation: Expanding the phenotype of vascular malformations in bannayan-riley-ruvalcaba syndrome
Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome (BRRS) is a rare autosomal, dominantly-inherited, hamartoma syndrome with distinct phenotypic features. Mutations in the PTEN gene have been identified in PTEN hamartoma tumor syndromes. ...
SIP1 is downregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma by promoter hypermethylation
Background: Smad interacting protein-1 is a transcription factor that is implicated in transforming growth factor-β/bone morphogenetic protein signaling and a repressor of E-cadherin and human telomerase reverse transcriptase. ...
Assessment of diagnostic enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kit and serological markers in human brucellosis
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 ...
Mutations in the very low-density lipoprotein receptor VLDLR cause cerebellar hypoplasia and quadrupedal locomotion in humans
(National Academy of Sciences, 2008)
Quadrupedal gait in humans, also known as Unertan syndrome, is a rare phenotype associated with dysarthric speech, mental retardation, and varying degrees of cerebrocerebellar hypoplasia. Four large consanguineous kindreds ...
Extreme clonality in lymphoblastoid cell lines with implications for allele specific expression analyses
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 ...
Variation in the attachment of Streptococcus pneumoniae to human pharyngeal epithelial cells after treatment with S-carboxymethylcysteine
S-carboxymethylcysteine (S-CMC) is a mucolytic agent that can prevent respiratory infection by decreasing the attachment of respiratory pathogens to human pharyngeal epithelial cells (HPECs). Streptococcus pneumoniae is a ...
