Lung cancer is recognized as a leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Over the past several years, evidence emerged that microRNAs (miRNAs), a class of small non-coding RNA molecules regulating gene expression at posttranscriptional level, play an important role in cell functioning, as well as in human diseases. Here, we analyzed expression of(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes is one of the multifactorial disorders with genetics and environmental factors playing important role in its cause. In diabetes, the defects in cellular metabolism results in increasing free radicals. These radicals react with other vital cellular molecules which are responsible in diabetes side effects. Human glutathione S-transferases(More)
CONTEXT Lung cancer is one of the most serious types of cancer that often diagnosed at advanced stage. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding molecules which silence gene expression of target gene (s) at posttranscriptional level. They are key regulators of cell cycle, apoptosis, anti-cancer drug responsiveness and metastasis. AIMS Identification of the(More)
To evaluate five common cystic fibrosis trans-membrane conductance regulator (CFTR) mutations (ΔF508, G542X, R117H, W1282X and N1303K) in the Iranian infertile men with noncongenital absence of vas deferens (CAVD) obstructive azoospermia. The common CFTR gene mutations were tested on blood samples from 53 infertile men with non-CAVD obstructive azoospermia(More)
BACKGROUND Toxoplasmosis is a worldwide-distributed infection which is mostly asymptomatic but can cause serious health problems in congenitally-infected newborns and immunecompromised individuals. Research is undergoing both to improve Toxoplasma serological tests, which play the main role in laboratory diagnosis of the infection, and develop an effective(More)
OBJECTIVES Cytomegalovirus (CMV) establishes a lifelong, asymptomatic infection in immunocompetent hosts. Interleukin-17 producing CD4+ T-cells (Th-17) are a subtype of CD4+ T-cells. The precise role of Th-17 responses during cytomegalovirus replication has not been elucidated, although recent studies suggest that infections such as murine cytomegalovirus(More)
This study was carried out in order to investigating the effect of travelling on the transmission of tuberculosis from high- to low-burden TB countries. Mycobacteria samples isolated from patients of distinct and relatively co-related countries (Azerbaijan Republic and Tabriz [located in the northwest of Iran]) were analyzed through 15 loci MIRU-VNTR typing(More)
In this study, the light chain (κ) and heavy chain (γ) sequences of the monoclonal antibody against vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) were sub-cloned into the eukaryotic pcDNA3.1 (+) (Hygro) and the pcDNA3.1 (+) (Neo) expression vectors using the traditional and homologous recombination methods. To express the antibody, the recombinant plasmids were(More)
BACKGROUND Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is an autosomal recessive congenital bleeding disorder with deficiency or dysfunction of von Willebrand factor (VWF). The gene encoding for the VWF is located on chromosome 12, which is 178 Kb with 52 exons. Various mutations of this gene is responsible for the clinical features of VWD, but some single nucleotide(More)
Escherichia coli O157:H7 is one of the most important pathogenic bacteria known in the world. HemolyticUremic Syndrome (HUS) is the most important disease caused by this bacterium. In this study, Escherichia coli O157:H7 was isolated from raw and pasteurized milk and cheese samples and the virulence genes were analyzed. This descriptive cross-sectional(More)
