In order to gain deeper insight into the functions and dynamics of RNA in cells, the development of methods for imaging multiple RNAs simultaneously is of paramount importance. Here, we describe a modular approach to image RNA in living cells using an RNA aptamer that binds to dinitroaniline, an efficient general contact quencher. Dinitroaniline quenches(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to investigate whether there is an association between male pattern baldness and angiographic coronary artery disease (CAD) severity and collateral development, which has not been reported previously. METHODS Coronary arteriograms, CAD risk factors, lipid parameters and presence and severity of baldness in 511 male patients were(More)
OBJECTIVE Noncardiac chest pain (NCCP) is seen more frequently in young population and in these patients loss of function is evolving in social and professional areas. The aim of the study is to evaluate the levels of anxiety and somatic perception in patients with chest pain presenting to cardiology clinic. METHODS Fifty-one patients with noncardiac(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of synthetic cannabinoids (SC) on P-wave dispersion (PD) in patients who consume SC. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study population included 72 patients who consumed SC and 36 age- and sex-matched healthy controls. The severity of addiction was detected using the addiction profile index (BAPI). The(More)
BACKGROUND The relationship between mental stress and cardiovascular disease has been shown in several studies. Panic disorder (PD) is also associated with cardiovascular disease due to increased risk of myocardial infarction. The aim of this study is to evaluate the association between arterial stiffness parameters and depression/anxiety scores in patients(More)
OBJECTIVE Chronic inflammation is associated with cardiovascular (CV) risk factors and psychiatric disorders. The neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been investigated as a new biomarker for systemic inflammatory response. The aim of the study is to investigate the relation of NLR with severity of depression and CV risk factors. METHODS The study(More)
A previously healthy 31-year-old man with a history of smoking presented with severe prolonged chest pain for more than one hour duration. ECG taken on admission revealed slightly widened QRS complexes, and ST segment elevations in leads aVR, aVL, V 1 and V 2 in contrast to up-sloping ST-segment depressions in leads D II , D III , aVF and V 3–6 at the J(More)
BACKGROUND Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are inflammatory markers used as prognostic factors in various diseases. The aims of this study were to compare the PLR and the NLR of heart failure (HF) patients with those of age-sex matched controls, to evaluate the predictive value of those markers in detecting HF,(More)
In acute myocarditis, thrombus formation is an important prognostic factor. Early diagnosis and treatment of intracardiac thrombus is critical, especially when there are multiple thrombi. When a patient presents with multiple cardiac thrombi not only cardiac disorders, but other diseases such as malignancies, rheumatologic disorders and thrombophilia must(More)
Renal sympathetic denervation is safe and effective in patients with resistant hypertension. In all of the studies of renal artery denervation, patients with accessory renal arteries are excluded. So there is not any data regarding renal sympathetic denervation applied to the accessory renal arteries. We present a young female patient with resistant(More)
