The Effect of a High-Protein Diet and Exercise on Cardiac AQP7 and GLUT4 Gene Expression
High-protein (HP) diets are commonly consumed by athletes despite their potential health hazard, which is postulated to enforce a negative effect on bone and renal health. However, its effects onExpand

Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase and Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Gene Polymorphisms in Migraine Patients.
INTRODUCTION In this study, we investigated the association of migraine with the Variable Number of Tandem Repeats (VNTR), repeated as 27 base pair, gene polymorphism in intron 4 of the endothelialExpand

The effect of high protein diet and exercise on irisin, eNOS, and iNOS expressions in kidney
Abstract Long-term effects of high protein diets (HPDs) on kidneys are still not sufficiently studied. Irisin which increases oxygen consumption and thermogenesis in white fat cells was shown inExpand

The alteration of NTproCNP plasma levels following anaerobic exercise in physically active young men
Objective: Amino-terminal propeptide of C-type natriuretic peptide (NTproCNP) is a synthesis product of C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP). In this study, plasma levels of NTproCNP were compared beforeExpand

Alteration in cardiac PI3K/Akt/mTOR and ERK signaling pathways with the use of growth hormone and swimming, and the roles of miR21 and miR133
Athletes misuse recombinant human growth hormone (r-hGH) to enhance their performance. Although r-hGH is known to increase cardiac hypertrophy, the underlying molecular mechanism remains unclear. TheExpand

Endothelial nitric oxide synthase intron 4a/b polymorphism in coronary artery disease in Thrace region of Turkey
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is one of the frequent cardiovascular mortality causes in the world. Common risk factors explain only about half the risk of CAD. The healthy familial predisposition toExpand

High-intensity interval training acutely alters plasma adipokine levels in young overweight/obese women
Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the plasma adipokine responses to high-intensity interval training (HIT) in overweight/obese women. Twelve women (age 21.7 ± 3.8 years) completed aExpand

Investigation of insulin resistance gene polymorphisms in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer
We aimed to investigate insulin receptor substrate-1 (IRS-1), insulin receptor substrate-2 (IRS-2), insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) genotypes, which are thought to be involvedExpand

Investigation of VEGF and IL-8 Gene Polymorphisms in Patients with Differentiated Thyroid Cancer.
BACKGROUND Differentiated thyroid carcinomas (DTC) account for most of the thyroid cancers. The emergence of DTC may be affected by various predisposing genetic alterations and environmental factorsExpand

Lack of Evidence for Contribution of Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase Intron 4 VNTR Gene Polymorphisms to Development of Ischemic Stroke in Turkish Subjects
ABSTRACT The gene polymorphisms of the vasodilator endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) are considered as important candidate genetic risk factors for vascular diseases. The present study aimedExpand
