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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Differential expression patterns of metastasis suppressor proteins in basal cell carcinoma
(Wiley-Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2015)
Background: Basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) are common malignant skin tumors. Despite having a significant invasion capacity, they metastasize only rarely. Our aim in this study was to detect the expression patterns of the ...
SOX1 antibodies are markers of paraneoplastic Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2008)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: We reported that 43% of patients with Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC) had an antibody called anti-glial nuclear antibody (AGNA), defined by the immunoreaction ...
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 ...
