BACKGROUND The objective of this study was optimisation of multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) by a new primer set for simultaneous detection of ropiness agents as the main bacterial spoilage of Iranian bread. After inoculation of bread dough with activated Bacillus licheniformis (ATCC 9789) and Bacillus subtilis (ATCC 6633), DNA was extracted from(More)
Biomarker detection is one of the most important and challenging problems in cancer studies. Recently, non-coding RNA based biomarkers such as miRNA expression levels have been used for early diagnosis of many cancer types. In this study, a systems biology approach was used to detect novel miRNA based biomarkers for CRC diagnosis in early stages. The mRNA(More)
Canine taeniids are among the major tapeworms with remarkable medical and economic significance. Reliable diagnosis and differentiation of dog taeniids using simple and sensitive tools are of paramount importance for establishing an efficient surveillance system. Microsatellites as abundant unique tandem repeats of short DNA motifs are useful genetic(More)
BACKGROUND Piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs), with a length of about 24-32 nucleotides, which have been discovered recently. These ncRNAs play an important role in germline development, transposon silencing, epigenetic regulation, protecting the genome from invasive transposable elements, and the pathophysiology of diseases(More)
In the present study, after molecular identification of dominant lactic acid bacteria (LAB) isolated from traditional fermented foods, antifungal activity of the isolates was investigated against aflatoxigenic Aspergillus spp. Based on screening results, among the isolated LAB, Pediococus lolii had the highest inhibitory effect against Aspergillus flavus(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNA) are a class of noncoding and regulatory RNA molecules about 22 nucleotides in length. MicroRNAs regulate gene expression by an RNA interfering pathway through cleavage or inhibition of the translation of target mRNA. Many miRNAs have been reported for their important roles in developmental processes in various animals, but there is limited(More)
BACKGROUND Dirofilariasis is a serious and potentially deadly condition in dogs and one of the zoonotic filarial infections, which inadvertently affects the humans. The objectives of this study were to determine the seroprevalence and the molecular identity of dirofilariasis in Kerman Province, southeastern Iran between Jul and Aug 2013. METHODS A hundred(More)
