Lung cancer is a major health problem and the leading cause of cancer deaths in the world. The pathogenesis of lung cancer is complex, and is believed to be due to the interaction between environmental and genetic factors. Various evidences show that HPV might be involved in bronchial carcinogenesis. In this study, 141 lung cancer patients and 92 non-cancer(More)
A new dibenzothiophene (DBT) desulfurizing bacterium was isolated from oil-contaminated soils in Iran. HPLC analysis and PCR-based detection of the presence of the DBT desulfurization genes (dszA, dszB and dszC) indicate that this strain converts DBT to 2-hydroxybiphenyl (2-HBP) via the 4S pathway. The strain, identified as Rhodococcus erythropolis SHT87,(More)
The TP53 gene has a polymorphism in exon 4 at codon 72 that presents the arginine or proline genotype. The association of TP53 codon 72 polymorphism with lung cancer risk has been studied by several groups, although with inconsistent results. Our previous study showed that the human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is associated with the development of lung(More)
The efficiency of dendrosomes (novel dendritic spheroidal nanoparticle gene porters) were assessed in transferring wild-type p53 cDNA into two human acute lymphoblastic leukemia cell lines (MOLT-4 and CCRF-CEM) derived from T cells and erythroleukemic cell line K562. Flow cytometric studies showed a 65% and 45% enhancement in apoptosis and necrosis of K562(More)
The presence of viral DNA in breast cancer cells is controversial. However, some studies have revealed a possible role for the human papillomavirus in the pathogenesis of breast cancer. The aim of the present study was to investigate the presence of HPV-DNA in breast tissue in a group of Iranian women with and without breast cancer and identification of the(More)
In this study, the effect of increasing doses of aspirin on the neurite outgrowth of Dorsal Root Ganglia (DRG) was investigated. DRG were cultured in complete medium (DMEM + 10% FCS +100 ng/ml NGF + collagen Type1 in substratum in 96 multiwell plate) in the presence of concentration of 1.25, 2.5, 5 and 10 mM aspirin. The neurite outgrowth of DRG was(More)
The Hepatitis B Surface antigen ( HBsAg) gene was isolated from an Iranian HBeAg positive carrier by PCR. The gene was cloned in pUC19 for sequencing and pYES2 for expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which pNF1 and pDF3 constructs were made respectively. The sequencing data showed that the isolated HBsAg gene shared more than 90% homology with the ayw(More)
