Heat shock proteins (HSP) are highly conserved molecules that play important roles in protein folding, assembly of protein complexes and translocation of proteins across cellular compartments, as well as in several immunological processes. In this study, we first immunized susceptible BALB/c and resistant C57BL/6 mice with the complete open-reading frame of(More)
The receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) ROR1 is overexpressed and of importance for the survival of various malignancies, including lung adenocarcinoma, breast cancer and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). There is limited information however on ROR1 in melanoma. In the present study we analysed in seven melanoma cell lines ROR1 expression and phosphorylation(More)
Signal Peptidase (SPase) is an essential enzyme in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes; which removes signal sequence from secretary proteins. Previously, type I SPase from Leishmania major (Lmjsp) has been isolated and characterized. The sera from cutaneous and visceral forms of leishmaniasis are highly reactive to both the recombinant SPase (rSP) and(More)
BACKGROUND Our preliminary data on the protein expression of SORT1 in ovarian carcinoma tissues showed that sortilin was overexpressed in ovarian carcinoma patients and cell lines, while non-malignant ovaries expressed comparably lower amount of this protein. In spite of diverse ligands and also different putative functions of sortilin (NTR3), the function(More)
INTRODUCTION For tissue engineering of the urinary tract system, cell culture requires to be established in vitro and an appropriate matrix acting as cell carrier should be developed. The aim of the present study was to assess the proliferation quality of mouse urothelial cells on 3 natural matrixes of human amniotic membrane (AM), peritoneum, and omentum,(More)
BACKGROUND Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) C677T and A1298C have been described as strong risk factors for idiopathic recurrent miscarriage (RM). However, very few studies have investigated the association of paternal MTHFR SNPs with RM. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of(More)
BACKGROUND Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is a member of herpes family viruses, which causes varicella (chickenpox) after primary infection and herpes zoster (shingles) because of latent virus reactivation from dorsal root ganglia. Generally, prevalence of varicella antibodies increases with age. We aimed to compare the prevalence of anti-VZV antibody in(More)
Sortilin, as a member of Vps10p-domain sorting receptor family, is overexpressed in a number of malignancies, including ovarian carcinoma. Antibodies against sortilin may contribute to further clarification of sortilin functional activities in signal transduction, intracellular sorting of proteins, and endocytosis. The aim of this study was to produce a(More)
