Human P-glycoprotein (P-gp) is encoded by the MDR1 gene, which is located on chromosomal region 7q21 and consists of 28 exons. To date, over 50 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been reported for the MDR1 gene. The effect of these polymorphisms on P-gp function or their clinical impact is in most cases unknown, but some of the SNPs are known to be(More)
Behcet’s disease (BD) is a chronic, multi-systemic and inflammatory disorder. The local renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in the vessel wall plays a role in the endothelial control and contributes to inflammatory processes. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) is the regulatory component of the RAS. This study was conducted in Turkish patients with BD to(More)
The three functional single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the MDR1 gene, C1236T, G2677T/A, and C3435T, exhibit an interpopulation difference. In this study, we analyzed the haplotype frequencies of these three SNPs in 107 unrelated healthy Turkish subjects and compared them with those of other reported populations. We found that C1236T, G2677T/A, and(More)
The multidrug resistance (MDR1) gene encodes a P-glycoprotein that plays a key role in drug bioavailability and response to drugs in different human populations. More than 50 SNPs have been described for the MDR1 gene. Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is considered an autosomal recessive hereditary disease, associated with a single gene named the(More)
AIM Systemic and local therapies can be used to treat painful bone metastases. It has been shown that certain pharmaceuticals such as 186Re (rhenium-186) are effective in the treatment of pains caused by bone metastasis and a correlation between bone metastases and T cells has also been shown. The aim of this study was to investigate the genotoxic effect of(More)
