Lack of evidence for the association of ornithine decarboxylase (+316 G>A), spermidine/spermine acetyl transferase (‑1415 T>C) gene polymorphisms with calcium oxalate stone disease
Urolithiasis is a complex and multifactorial disorder characterized by the presence of stones in the urinary tract. Urea cycle is an important process involved in disease progression. L‑ornithine is a key amino acid in the ...
Multiple Sclerosis: Association with the Interleukin-1 Gene Family Polymorphisms in the Turkish Population
(Informa Healthcare, Telephone House, 69-77 Paul Street, London Ec2A 4Lq, England, 2013-10)
Background: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurodegenerative disease. It involves inflammation and demyelination. Since cytokines play an important role in the development of MS, genes encoding cytokines such as the Interleukin ...
Association between IL-1RN VNTR, IL-1 beta -511 and IL-6 (-174, -572, -597) Gene Polymorphisms and Urolithiasis
(Karger, Allschwilerstrasse 10, Ch-4009 Basel, Switzerland, 2013)
Urolithiasis is a common multifactorial urological disorder that is characterized by stone formation. Interleukin (IL)-1 and IL-6 are pro-inflammatory cytokines that might be linked with urolithiasis. The single nucleotide ...
Assessment of Interleukin-1 Gene Cluster Polymorphisms in Lone Atrial Fibrillation: New Insight into the Role of Inflammation in Atrial Fibrillation
(Wiley-Blackwell, 111 River St, Hoboken 07030-5774, Nj USA, 2013-10)
BackgroundSystemic inflammation is accepted as one of the pathophysiological mechanisms of atrial fibrillation (AF). The role of inflammation has been shown previously. Interleukin (IL) system is the main modulator of the ...
Inhibition of Polyamine Oxidase Prevented Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitor-Induced Apoptosis in HCT 116 Colon Carcinoma Cells
(Springer, Van Godewijckstraat 30, 3311 Gz Dordrecht, Netherlands, 2013-12)
Roscovitine and purvalanol are novel cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitors that prevent cell proliferation and induce apoptotic cell death in various cancer cell lines. Although a number of studies have demonstrated the ...
