Cervical cancer (CC) is the second most common cancer in Mexican women. Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is necessary but not sufficient for CC development. Furthermore, genetic factors as polymorphisms could be important susceptibility factors. Controversial results regarding TP53 polymorphisms specifically in codon 72 of CC have been reported. In the(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to examine possible genetic effects of some retinol binding protein-4 (RBP4) single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on the risk of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). In addition, the SNPs were examined for their possible association with insulin resistance at 6 weeks after delivery. METHODS This was a prospective study of 100(More)
Excessive weight gain and obesity are major public health concerns. Childhood obesity is growing at an alarming rate. Polymorphisms in the Calpain-10 gene and the reduced expression of this gene in muscle cells and adipocytes have been associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus in several populations. In the present study, we explored the(More)
On the basis of human papillomavirus (HPV) E6 gene mutations, there are more than five variants of HPV 16. We applied a sensitive and specific stacking hybridization assay using an oligoarray for the detection of Asian-American (AA) and European (E) (E350G) HPV 16 variants. A simple glass slide was coated with capture probes consisting of short(More)
Cervical carcinoma (CC) is one of the most common cancers among women worldwide and the first cause of death among the Mexican female population. Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the most important etiologic factor for CC. Of the oncogenic types, HPV16 and HPV18 are found in 60-70% of invasive CCs worldwide. HPV18 appears to be associated with a more(More)
The molecular mechanisms implicated in pronounced weight loss and metabolic benefits after bariatric surgery are still unknown. Adipocyte phenotype and metabolism have not been entirely explored. However, some features of adipocyte function have been studied, such as adipocyte size and inflammation, which are both reduced after bariatric surgery. Adipocyte(More)
BACKGROUND Neonatal lesion in the ventral hippocampus (NLVH) is a validated animal model to study schizophrenia from a neurodevelopmental perspective. This animal model is also used to investigate how neonatal lesions may alter the genetic expression of dopaminergic receptors. The present study compares mRNA expression levels of dopamine receptors (drd2 and(More)
