A significant loss of neurons in the dorsal root ganglia (DRG) has been reported in animal models of peripheral nerve injury. Neonatal sensory neurons are more susceptible than adult neurons to axotomy- or nerve growth factor (NGF) withdrawal-induced cell death. To develop therapies for preventing irreversible sensory cell loss, it is essential to(More)
The advent of the Internet, World-Wide Web and more recently, advanced technologies such as mobile, sensor and location technologies have changed the way people interact with each other, their lifestyle and almost every other aspect of life. Educational sector is not immune from such effects even if the rate of change is far slower than many other sectors.(More)
Multiple mechanisms contribute to the liver fibrosis following cholestasis. Recent research has focused on the role of transforming growth factor β-1 (TGF-β1) in the progression of fibrosis. The aim of our study is to examine the role of epigenetic chromatin marks, such as histone H3 lysine methylation (H3Kme), in bile duct ligation (BDL)-induced TGF-β1(More)
Studies regarding coxsackievirus (CV) tend to focus on epidemic outbreaks, an imbalanced topology is considered to be an indication of acute infection with partial cross-immunity. In enteroviruses, a clear understanding of the characteristics of tree topology, transmission, and its demographic dynamics in viral succession and circulation are essential for(More)
Excitatory amino acids (EAAs) play a critical role in the development of peripheral tactile and thermal hypersensitivity after the induction of paw inflammation in rats. We used a spinal microdialysis model to examine the effect of complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA)-induced inflammation on the spinal release of EAAs and assessed the antinociceptive effect of(More)
In this case report, we describe a 70-year-old male patient who sustained Kounis syndrome induced by cisatracurium administration immediately following induction of general anesthesia. Acute coronary syndrome combined with anaphylactic shock, termed Kounis syndrome, should be investigated in percutaneous coronary intervention to solve this complex and(More)
Complications arising from hysteroscopy are relatively rare events. They occur more frequently with operative hysteroscopy than with diagnostic hysteroscopy. Hysteroscopic procedures, which are alternatives to hysterectomy for surgical treatment of menorrhagia and uterine fibroids, place women to run the risk of intravasation of uterine distention fluid.(More)
Introduction Body movements, including gestures, provide different learning channels for students, which may help them to more easily understand learning materials (Hostetter & Alibali, 2008; Tellier, 2008; Wilson, 2002). From this perspective, the purpose of using gestures is to help learners improve their comprehension and build connections between the(More)
Members of the miR-183 family are unique in that they are highly abundant in sensory organs. In a recent study, significant downregulation was observed for miR-96 and miR-183 in the L5 dorsal root ganglion (DRG) 2 weeks after spinal nerve ligation (SNL). In this study, we focused on miR-183, which is the most regulated member of the miR-183 family, to look(More)
