The present study was carried out to assess the frequencies of factor XIII (FXIII) Val34Leu genetic variation in the patients with recurrent spontaneous abortion and healthy fertile women of Azeri Turkish origin. A total of 54 patients with recurrent spontaneous abortion and 46 healthy fertile women as controls were studied for the FXIII Val34Leu genetic(More)
INTRODUCTION In order to determine the frequencies of factor V Leiden and prothrombin G20210A point mutations in the Iranian population with Azeri Turkish origin. MATERIAL AND METHODS 120 unrelated individuals from general population randomly selected and were examined for factor V Leiden and prothrombin G20210A mutations using a multiplex allele specific(More)
OBJECTIVES Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a genetic inborn error of phenylalanine (Phe) metabolism resulting from insufficiency in the hepatic enzyme, phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH), which leads to elevated levels of Phe in the blood. The present study was carried out for mutation analysis of the PAH gene in West Azerbaijan province of Iran. MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) has an important role in inactivation of bradykinin and tachykinins which known as powerful bronchoconstrictors. It has been demonstrated that an insertion (1)/deletion (D) genetic variations within the ACE gene greatly influence the plasma level of ACE. OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to determine(More)
UNLABELLED INTRODUCTION In this study we evaluate the involvement of Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) FokI (rs10735810) Exon 2 (C/T) and BsmI (rs1544410) Intron 8 (A/G) gene variations in genetic susceptibility to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in Iranian Azeri Turkish women. MATERIALS AND METHODS The RFLP-PCR method was performed on peripheral blood(More)
The association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the interleukin (IL)-17 gene and silicosis has been evaluated in different populations. The aim of the present study was to analyze the association between SNPs at IL-17A (-832A/G) and IL-17F (+7488A/G) and susceptibility to accelerated silicosis in the Iranian Kurdish population. We studied(More)
Introduction The aim of the present study was to determine the frequency of M694V, M680I and V726A mutations of the MEFV gene in 630 Azeri Turkish patients with family Mediterranean fever. Material and Methods The MEFV gene mutations were detected using allele-specific oligonucleotide polymerase chain reaction. Outcomes 630 cases with a mean age ± SD of(More)
The roles of several hereditary predispositions for venous thromboembolism have been evaluated in women with habitual abortion. We studied the prevalence of FV Leiden G1691A and FII G20210A mutations in women with habitual abortion and healthy controls. 60 unrelated fertile females, as controls, and 70 unrelated women with at least three consecutive(More)
INTRODUCTION Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is the most common systemic vasculitis in children. Several risk factors play important role in pathogenesis of HSP. We aimed to study the MEFV gene mutations (M694V, V726A, M680I, and A744S) in Iranian children with HSP. MATERIAL AND METHODS 50 unrelated pediatric cases were studied regarding M694V, V726A,(More)
INTRODUCTION We report the frequency of IVS10nt546, R261Q, S67P, R252W, and R408W mutations linked to PAH VNTR alleles in the west Azerbaijani PKU patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS VNTR alleles and IVS10nt546, R261Q, S67P, R252W, R408W mutations were studied in a total of 20 PKU patients by PCR and RFLP-PCR. OUTCOMES Our analysis showed that 95% of cases(More)
