OBJECTIVE We evaluated whether the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) 677C>T marker influences the risk and severity of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and whether AD is associated with homocysteine, vitamin B12, and cholesterol levels in Egypt. METHODS Forty-three Alzheimer's cases and 32 non-AD controls were genotyped for the 677C>T polymorphism.(More)
Several environmental and genetic factors are associated with high levels of lipids in obese patients. Apolipoprotein B (ApoB) is the major protein component of low-density lipoproteins (LDL), very-low density lipoproteins (VLDL) and chylomicrons and plays a central role in lipid metabolism. Several apoB restriction fragment length polymorphisms (XbaI,(More)
BACKGROUND Hemophilias A and B are X-linked bleeding disorders caused by mutations in the factor VIII and factor IX genes, respectively. Our objective was to identify the spectrum of mutations of the factor VIII and factor IX genes in Saudi Arabian population and determine the genotype and phenotype correlations by molecular dynamics (MD) simulation.

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is commonly observed in human males. It is a genetic disorder affecting the red blood cells. The diagnosis of G6PD is usually based on blood analysis and there is no specific molecular or genetic test. The complete gene sequence of G6PD is known for different ethnicities. Known single nucleotide(More)

c Holding Company for Biological products and Vaccines (VACSERA-Egypt). Background: Apolipoprotein B (ApoB) is the major protein component of chylomicrons, low-density lipoproteins (LDL), very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) and intermediate-density lipoproteins (IDL) and is the ligand for the LDL receptor. ApoB plays an important role in the maintenance of(More)
We evaluated whether TAP1-rs1135216 (p.637D>G) and PSMB9-rs17587 (p.60R>H) were significantly associated with the risk and severity of vitiligo among Saudi patients. One hundred seventy-two subjects were genotyped for the TAP1-rs1135216 and PSMB9-rs17587 variants using endonuclease digestions of amplified genomic DNA. The TAP1-rs1135216 and PSMB9-rs17587(More)
