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)
In this paper, an adaptive distance relaying strategy based on the global network simulation (GNS) concept is presented. The GNS concept is actually a distributed simulation approach (DSA) for piecewise analysis of large-scale power grids using diakoptics and large change sensitivity (LCS) concepts. To set each utility’s relays trip settings adaptively in(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)
c-Met receptor tyrosine kinase is a proto-oncogene whose aberrant activation is attributed to a lower rate of survival in most cancers. Natural product-derived inhibitors known as “fourth generation inhibitors” constitute more than 60% of anticancer drugs. Furthermore, consensus docking approach has recently been introduced to augment docking accuracy and(More)
