BACKGROUND Although the majority of investigations concerned with TP53 and its protein have focused on coding regions, recently a set of studies highlighted significant roles of regulatory elements located in p53 mRNA, especially 5 ? UTR. The wrap53α transcript is one of those that acts as a natural antisense agent, forming RNA-RNA hybrids with p53 mRNA and(More)
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive neurological disorder characterized by a large number of motor and non-motor features and is known as the second most common neurodegenerative disorder after Alzheimer’s disease. The hallmark pathology of PD is the damage and death of dopamine-producing neurons in the substantia-nigra of midbrain. Intrastriatal(More)
BACKGROUND p53 gene is a well-known tumor suppressor gene that has several polymorphisms in both its exons and introns. It has been suggested that intron 3 16 bp duplication polymorphism may affect the gene function resulting in reduction or suppression of p53 anti tumor activity. In most case control studies a duplicated allele has been noticeably more(More)
Loss of motor and sensory function as a result of neuronal cell death and axonal degeneration are the hallmarks of spinal cord injury. To overcome the hurdles and achieve improved functional recovery multiple aspects, it must be taken into account. Tissue engineering approaches by coalescing biomaterials and stem cells offer a promising future for treating(More)
