The Complex and Diversified Mitochondrial Gene Pool of Berber Populations
The mitochondrial DNA variation of 295 Berber‐speakers from Morocco (Asni, Bouhria and Figuig) and the Egyptian oasis of Siwa was evaluated by sequencing a portion of the control region (includingExpand
Allele frequencies of 15 short tandem repeats (STRs) in three Egyptian populations of different ethnic groups.
DNA typing of 15 short tandem repeat (STR) loci included in the AmpFlSTR Identifiler PCR amplification kit (Applied Biosystems), was carried out in three Egyptian populations of different ethnicExpand
HLA-Class II Alleles in Egyptian Patients with Hepatocellular Carcinoma
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is linked to environmental, dietary, and life style factors. Its incidence and distribution vary widely among ethnic groups, sex, and geographic regions. HBV and HCVExpand
IRF5, PTPN22, CD28, IL2RA, KIF5A, BLK and TNFAIP3 genes polymorphisms and lupus susceptibility in a cohort from the Egypt Delta; relation to other ethnic groups.
OBJECTIVE To replicate a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of known genes for lupus (IRF5 rs10488631, PTPN22 rs2476601, BLK rs2736340 and TNFAIP3 rs5029939) and other autoimmune diseases (CD28Expand
Consanguinity associated with increased risk for bipolar I disorder in Egypt
We aimed to contrast rates of consanguinity among patients with bipolar I disorder (BP1) and controls in a population with customary consanguineous marriages (i.e., marriage between relatedExpand
Proinflammatory cytokines (IL-12 and IL-18) in immune rheumatic diseases: relation with disease activity and autoantibodies production.
Interleukin-18 (IL-18) and its inducer IL-12 have multiple biological activities that are important in generating Th1 responses and inflammatory tissue damage. We investigated serum concentration ofExpand
HLA-DQB1* alleles and genetic susceptibility to type 1 diabetes mellitus.
AIM To determine human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DQB1 allele association with susceptibility to type 1 diabetes (T1D) and to clinical and laboratory findings. METHODS This study was conducted on 85Expand
Rapidly mutating Y-STRs in rapidly expanding populations: Discrimination power of the Yfiler Plus multiplex in northern Africa.
The male-specific northern African genetic pool is characterised by a high frequency of the E-M81 haplogroup, which expanded in very recent times (2-3 kiloyears ago). As a consequence of their recentExpand
Vascular endothelial growth factor, p53, and the H-ras oncogene in Egyptian patients with bladder cancer.
AIM To evaluate the relationship between vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), p53, and the H-ras oncogene and different clinicopathological parameters in Egyptian patients withExpand
Expression of HLA-G in cancer bladder.
This study comprised 42 patients with cancer bladder, who underwent radical cystectomy. The aim of work is to determine if HLA-G is expressed on tumor cells, derived from cancer bladder. We studiedExpand
