Reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been suggested to play an important role in physiopathology of schizophrenia. The major intracellular antioxidant enzymes, copper-zinc superoxide dismutase in the cytoplasm and manganese superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD) in the mitochondria, rapidly and specifically reduce superoxide radicals to hydrogen peroxide.(More)
We aimed to examine the protective effects of resveratrol against homocysteine induced oxidative stress, apoptosis and cognitive impairment. Rats were randomly divided into three groups. Control group received standard rat food; homocysteine group (Hcy group) received daily methionine at a dose of 1g/kg-body weight dissolved in drinking water for thirty(More)
BACKGROUND Morphological changes of white matter have been described in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The aim of our study was to determine whether a functional polymorphism of the myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) G511C (Val142Leu) is associated with white matter volumes in patients with OCD. METHODS The MOG G511C (Val142Leu)(More)
Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is an autoinflammatory periodic disorder. We aim to identify the distribution and the frequency of the Mediterranean Fever (MEFV) gene mutations in the east of Anatolia in Turkey and perform a genotype/phenotype correlation in the patients' cohort. The study was carried out on 415 clinically diagnosed Turkish FMF patients(More)
Increased oxidative stress can help promote carcinogenesis, including development of renal cell carcinoma. The enzyme protects low-density lipoproteins from oxidation and can be a factor in this process. PON1 Q192R and L55M paraoxonase gene polymorphisms were assessed in 60 renal cell carcinoma patients and 60 healthy controls. Genotypes were examined by(More)
Although a number of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and genetic studies have been performed on obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), only limited studies in which genetic and neuroanatomical variables are evaluated concurrently have been performed. Therefore, the aim of our present study is (to understand) better understanding how genetic variation in the(More)
