SCID disorder is major failure of the immune system, usually genetic. The aim of this study was on mutations detection of RAG1, RAG2, and IL7RG genes in SCID cases. Mutation detection was performed by PCR sequencing. Our results indicated that 13 mutations were found through cases which include 4 mutations in IL7R gene (T661I, I138V, T56A, C57W), 7(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an immunological inflammatory disease of the central nervous system. The pathogenesis of MS is incompletely understood, but various studies have suggested that mitochondrial dysfunction is associated with the disease. Mitochondria are among the main cellular sources of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, and they play a pivotal(More)
Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is a life-threatening X-linked recessive immunodeficiency disease described as a clinical triad of thrombocytopenia, eczema, and recurrent infections, caused by mutations of the WAS protein (WASP) gene. The milder form of this disease is X-linked thrombocytopenia (XLT) that presents only as platelet abnormalities. Mutation(More)
BACKGROUND The spinocerebellar ataxias (SCA) comprise a heterogeneous group of severe late-onset neurodegenerative diseases that are promoted by the expansion of a tandem-arrayed DNA sequence that modifies the primary structure of the protein. METHODS Genomic DNA of 20 patients affected with SCAs was extracted from peripheral blood and screened for(More)
