Assessment of the Microbiological Quality and Mycotoxin Contamination of Iranian Red Pepper Spice
The objective of this study was to assess the microbial contamination of Razavi Khorasan (Iran) hot red pepper. The natural occurrence of aflatoxins and ochratoxin A in those samples was alsoExpand
Antidiabetic effect of Teucrium polium aqueous extract in multiple low-dose streptozotocin-induced model of type 1 diabetes in rat
A B S T R A C T Background and Objective: Teucrium polium (TP) has shown hypoglycemic effect in type 1 diabetes induced by single high dose of the cytotoxic agent streptozotocin (STZ) in rats. ThisExpand
Biallelic loss of function variants in PPP1R21 cause a neurodevelopmental syndrome with impaired endocytic function
Next‐generation sequencing (NGS) has been instrumental in solving the genetic basis of rare inherited diseases, especially neurodevelopmental syndromes. However, functional workup is essential forExpand
Association of Glutathione S-Transferase Gene Methylation with Risk of Schizophrenia in an Iranian Population
Background/Aim: It has been believed that epigenetic changes play a critical role in schizophrenia through improper interaction between genome and environmental risk factors. The aim of thisExpand
APOE and CPT1-A Promoter Methylation and Expression Profiles in Patients with Schizophrenia
Background: Apo-lipoprotein E (APOE) and Carnitine palmitoyltransferase1-A (CPT1-A) genes are well known to be involved in the pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia butExpand
A 57 kB Genomic Deletion Causing CTNS Loss of Function Contributes to the CTNS Mutational Spectrum in the Middle East
Background: Nephropathic Cystinosis, the most common cause of renal Fanconi syndrome, is a lysosomal transport disorder with an autosomal recessive inheritance pattern. A large number of mutations inExpand
SOX1 is correlated to stemness state regulator SALL4 through progression and invasiveness of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
SOX1, as a tumor suppressor, play anti-tumorigenecity role in different cells and its expression is inhibited in a variety of cancers. The aim of this study was to evaluate SOX1 expression and itsExpand
Biallelic mutations in neurofascin cause neurodevelopmental impairment and peripheral demyelination
See Karakaya and Wirth (doi:10.1093/brain/awz273) for a scientific commentary on this article. Neurofascin (NFASC) isoforms are immunoglobulin cell adhesion molecules involved in node of RanvierExpand
MPZL2 is a novel gene associated with autosomal recessive nonsyndromic moderate hearing loss
While recent studies have revealed a substantial portion of the genes underlying human hearing loss, the extensive genetic landscape has not been completely explored. Here, we report aExpand
Homozygous Missense Variants in NTNG2, Encoding a Presynaptic Netrin-G2 Adhesion Protein, Lead to a Distinct Neurodevelopmental Disorder
NTNG2 encodes netrin-G2, a membrane-anchored protein implicated in the molecular organization of neuronal circuitry and synaptic organization and diversification in vertebrates. In this study,Expand
