In physiological condition mammalian cells produce a small amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS) which influence biological processes. At high concentration ROS are the mediator of damage to lipids, protein and nucleic acids. Exposure to free radicals has led organisms to develop series of defense mechanism that can protect against oxidative stress. The(More)
The hair follicles of recipients of allogeneic hematopoietic SCT (HSCT) constitute the tissue with the greatest need for regeneration after high-dose chemotherapy. Previous studies have shown a lack of donor-derived DNA in the hair follicles of recipients. Therefore, we carried out a study to determine whether male donor-derived genetic material can be(More)
Expecting a significant breakthrough in the diagnosis of complex disorders of neuropsychiatric background, intensive efforts are taking place to establish genetic markers correlated with these disorders. During the last decade, this research was focused on code regions connected with neurotransmission and metabolism of catecholamines. Nowadays big(More)
Allele frequency data and forensic efficiency parameters for 15 STR loci: D8S1179, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1PO, D3S1358, TH01, D13S317, D16S539, D2S1338, D19S433, vWA, TPOX, D18S51, D5S818, FGA were estimated from a sample of 600 unrelated individuals from the Pomorze Zachodnie (NW Poland). The combined MP and PE for all 15 loci are 3.9x10(-18) and 0.9999988,(More)
The authors presented the results of DNA polymorphism investigation of blood, buccal swabs and hair follicles originating from patients after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The real-time and multiplex assays based on polymerase chain reaction within the range of autosomal as well as Y-chromosomal markers were applied to assess the(More)
The aim of this study was to compare and select the optimal method of DNA isolation from blood, semen and saliva stains, as well as to determine appropriate conditions for employing amplification kits for identification of individual persons [brak w polskim tekście]. The materials analyzed in this study consisted of stains of blood, semen and saliva samples(More)
The most common cause of problems associated with analyzing DNA extracted from forensic samples is their high level of degradation. Such difficulties are caused by the fact that STR markers have too large amplicon sizes to be amplified in degraded DNA samples. Thus, it is necessary to employ more efficient markers for analyzing evidential samples. SNPs are(More)

The combined MP and PE for all 15 loci are 4.8 x 10(-18) and 0.9999989,(More)
The report presents an application of the QIAamp DNA Investigator Kit and PrepFiler Forensic DNA Extraction Kit in genomic DNA extraction from post-mortem highly degraded skeletal remains. The analysis included 25 bone samples collected on autopsy. DNA extraction was performed in accordance with the QIAamp DNA Investigator Kit and PrepFiler Forensic DNA(More)
