Gingiva is a unique tissue which protects the underlying periodontal tissues from consistent mechanical and bacterial aggressions. Molecular analysis of gingiva is likely to improve our understanding of the underlying biological processes at work. The aim of this preliminary exploratory study is to analyze the proteomic profile of healthy gingiva and to(More)
To elucidate the metabolic processes playing roles in the formation of keratoconus (KC). Tears samples were collected using capillary glass tubes without stimulation and without prior anesthesia from 17 patients and 16 controls. Proteomic analysis by fluorescent 2D gel electrophoresis (DIGE) coupled with MALDI-TOF/TOF was performed. The identified proteins(More)
Francisella tularensis is the causative agent of tularemia. Although major contributors and the main mechanism of the virulence are well known, some of the molecular details are still missing. Proteomics studies regarding F. tularensis have provided snapshot pictures of the organism grown under different culture conditions to understand the mechanism of(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the genotypic distribution of organic anion transporting polypeptide 2 (OATP-2) gene mutations and the relationship with hyperbilirubinemia of unknown etiology. Polymerase chain reaction, restriction fragment length polymorphism, and agarose gel electrophoresis techniques were used for detection of OATP-2 gene(More)
