The incidence of neural tube defects is higher in Turkey compared to that of developed countries. To prevent congenital malformations, understanding of the current status is necessary, which should be followed by public-based activities. We examined the incidence rate of neural tube defects (NTDs) in Afyonkarahisar. According to the records of the(More)
Osteoporosis is a common disorder, with prolongation of the average life span it has become a major public health problem. On the formation of osteoporosis genetic factors and environmental influences could play a role then it is considered as multi-factorial. Because a variety of functions to affect susceptibility to the formation of osteoporosis VDR-F,(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate relationship between polymorphisms in genes that are clinical and environmental features and the risk of myocardial infarction (MI) in Afyonkarahisar subjects living in Turkey. Prevalence of the several genes polymorphisms, ≤45 (42.04 ± 3.3) and ≥46 (57.19 ± 7.5) years were studied in individuals with MI and without(More)
The karyotypes of water mites (Acari: Hydrachnellae: Hydrodromidae) are largely unknown. The present investigation is the first report of a study designed to characterize the chromosomes of water mites. The study was carried out with specimens of Hydrodroma despiciens collected from Eber Lake in Afyon, Turkey. Several different methods were tried to obtain(More)
We present a case of a young boy in whom lacrimo-auriculo-dental-digital (LADD) syndrome with QT prolongation was detected. According to Bazett's formula, corrected QT was 504 ms. There were no published data about LADD syndrome with QT prolongation. This is the first case concerning LADD syndrome associated with QT prolongation. It is known that deafness(More)
We report on a Yq/15p translocation in a 23-year-old infertile male referred for Klinefelter Syndrome testing, who had azoospermia and bilateral small testes. Hormonal studies revealed hypergonadotropic hypogonadism. Conventional cytogenetic procedures giemsa trypsin giemsa (GTG) and high resolution banding (HRB) and molecular cytogenetic techniques(More)
Telomere biology is intimately linked to the genetic/environmental etiology of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases and telomere shortening is emerging as an important biomarker disease. The relationship between subtelomeric deletions and genetic hypertension was examined. Fluorescence in situ hybridization was used to directly assess whether there is a(More)
We report on the clinical and molecular findings of a patient who presented alopecia, epicanthus, micrognathia, retrognathia, high arched palate, hypertelorism, Chiari type I malformation, mixed-type hearing loss but with normal heartbeat Q-T interval, malformed earlobes, down-slanted palpebral fissures, downturned corners of the mouth, syndactyly, atopic(More)
