Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a group of related neurodevelopmental syndromes with complex genetic etiology. We identified a de novo chromosome 7q inversion disrupting Autism susceptibility candidate 2 (AUTS2) and Contactin Associated Protein-Like 2 (CNTNAP2) in a child with cognitive and social delay. We focused our initial analysis on CNTNAP2 based(More)
BACKGROUND Experimental models of traumatic brain injury (TBI), using a variety of techniques and species, have been devised with the aim of producing repeatable lesions resembling those found in head injuries. There are various TBI models mentioned in the literature. In experimental head trauma models, emphasis has been placed on the severe head injuries.(More)
CD200 acts through its receptor (CD200R) to inhibit excessive inflammation. The role of CD200-CD200R1 interaction in tumor immunity is poorly understood. In this study, we examined the role of CD200-CD200R1 interaction in the progression and metastasis of highly aggressive 4THM murine-breast carcinoma using CD200 transgenic (CD200tg) and CD200R1 knock-out(More)
Background and Purpose—Mutations in the Programmed Cell Death 10 (PDCD10) gene cause autosomal dominant familial cerebral cavernous malformations (CCM3). To date, little is known about the function of this gene and its role in disease pathogenesis. Methods—We examined the effects of overexpression of wild-type and 2 human disease-causing variants of PDCD10(More)
OBJECT Epineural fibrosis may complicate peripheral nerve surgeries and currently is considered as one of the main factors responsible for failed surgeries. The authors investigated the postoperative antiscarring effects of topically applied doxorubicin (DXR) on rat sciatic nerves. METHODS The sciatic nerves were dissected from the surrounding tissue and(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder marked by cell death in the Substantia nigra (SN). Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is the major polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) in the phospholipid fraction of the brain and is required for normal cellular function. Glial cell line derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) and neurturin(More)
The presence of progenitor/stem cells in human articular cartilage remains controversial. Therefore, we attempted to isolate and culture progenitor/stem cells and to investigate their phenotypic characteristics. Biopsies were obtained (with consent) from patients undergoing arthroscopic surgery. Full depth explants were fixed and cryosectioned or(More)
Although the oxidative stress and inflammation are closely related with breast cancer, there is no study directly examining the possible changes in vascular functions in the presence of breast carcinoma. The goal of the present study was to evaluate changes in vascular reactivity in tumor-bearing mice. In this study, highly metastatic breast carcinoma cells(More)
An important subgroup of adhesion molecules is the superfamily of cadherins, which takes part in cell recognition and differentiation during development. To our knowledge only one study describing N-cadherin expression in developing human brain has been performed so far. Our aim is to identify N-cadherin expression to establish a relationship between its(More)
