OBJECTIVE This study investigated whether any genomic change occurs in DNA level in ankylosing spondylitis (AS) by measuring sister chromatid exchange (SCE) frequency. METHODS SCE frequency was detected on metaphase chromosomes obtained from peripheral blood lymphocyte cultures in 15 patients diagnosed as having AS. SCE values were also obtained from 15(More)
The neuroprotective role of nimodipine was tested in kainic acid (50 and 100 microM) induced neurotoxicity in cerebellar granular cell cultures of 4 to 7 day-old rat pups. Nimodipine was applied in 50, 100 and 200 microM concentrations. Kainate, in either dose, induced cerebellar granular cell death in respect to controls and the results were statistically(More)
In the present study, we contribute to the diversity of marine meiofauna of Turkey by describing both sexes of Schizopera karanovici sp. nov., which were collected from the intertidal zone of Alata beach, Turkey. The new species is closely related to S. lagrecai Pesce 1988, S. minuta Noodt 1955, and S. variseta Bozic, 1964, but can easily be differentiated(More)
