Notch is a highly conserved transmembrane receptor that determines cell fate. Notch signaling denotes cleavage of the Notch intracellular domain, its translocation to the nucleus, and subsequent activation of target gene transcription. Involvement of Notch signaling in several cancers is well known, but its role in melanoma remains poorly characterized.(More)
In addition to producing sebum, sebocytes link lipid metabolism with inflammation at a cellular level and hence, greatly resemble adipocytes. However, so far no analysis was performed to identify and characterize the adipocyte-associated inflammatory proteins, the members of the adipokine family in sebocytes. Therefore, we determined the expression profile(More)
Nijmegen breakage syndrome (NBS) is a rare autosomal recessive chromosomal instability syndrome characterized by severe immunodeficiency, growth retardation, microcephaly, a distinct facial appearance, and a high predisposition to lymphoid malignancy. We report a 7-year-old white girl with NBS associated with cutaneous tuberculosis. The patient presented(More)
BACKGROUND The formation of metastases and the efficacy of systemic therapies in cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) depend on the characteristics of the tumour cells and the host immune response. Aberrant expression of metallothionein (MT) has been observed in several types of cancers with poor prognoses. OBJECTIVE To perform an immunohistochemical study(More)
The following results were obtained by the authors from follow-up checks of 102 children, aged between 2.5 and eight years, who had been delivered from induced pregnancies. - Developmental abnormalities were recorded from seven cases, in the context of paediatric examinations. Minimal neurological deviations were exhibited by 14 children. Moderate(More)
