Multidrug resistance-associated protein 1 (MRP1), encoded by the ABCC1 gene, is an ATP-binding cassette transporter mediating efflux of organic anions and xenobiotics; its overexpression leads to multidrug resistance. In this study, 30 exons (from 31 in total) of the ABCC1 gene as well as and their flanking intron sequences were screened for genetic(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified many loci associated with body mass index (BMI) in many different populations. Variants in the FTO locus are reported to be one of the strongest genetic predictors of obesity. Recent publications pointed also to a topologically associated domain (TAD) which is identified as a novel(More)
OBJECTIVE Endometriosis is a common gynaecological disease, associated with severe pelvic pain and reduced fertility; however, molecular mechanisms remain largely unknown. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) are able to identify genetic loci, which can play significant role during endometriosis development. AIM The study aimed at localisation of new(More)
RAR-related orphan receptor gamma RORγT, a tissue-specific isoform of the RORC gene, plays a critical role in the development of naive CD4+ cells into fully differentiated Th17 lymphocytes. Th17 lymphocytes are part of the host defense against numerous pathogens and are also involved in the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases, including autoimmune(More)
Breast cancer is the most common cause of malignancy and mortality in women worldwide. This study aimed at localising homologous recombination repair (HR) genes and their chromosomal loci and correlating their nucleotide variants with susceptibility to breast cancer. In this study, authors analysed the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms(More)
