Hepatitis C Virus is a major cause of acute and chronic hepatitis worldwide. 80-90% of Hepatitis C Virus infections become chronic and 75% of these cases lead to liver disease, including cirrhosis, liver failure and ...
Establishment of an experimental system to study p53 effects in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(Bilkent University, 1997)
The aim of this vv^ork was to establish an experimental model to study human wild type and mutant p53 protein effects in yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells. Wild type p53 was previously shown to be a DNA damage response ...
Effects of biological compound Turkish propolis extract on breast cancer cells
(Bilkent University, 2013)
Propolis is a resinous compound which is collected from various plants then combined with wax and bee enzymes by worker bees. There are many studies conducted on propolis or its active components aiming to find new ...
Expression of notch signaling pathway receptors and ligands in human breast cancer cell lines and human breast tumors
(Bilkent University, 2004)
