PURPOSE The gene coding cytochrome P4501B1 (CYP1B1) has been shown to be a major cause of primary congenital glaucoma in the Iranian population. More recently it was shown to also be important in juvenile-onset open angle glaucoma (JOAG). We aimed to further investigate the role of CYP1B1 in a larger cohort of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) patients(More)
PURPOSE To investigate variations in sex ratio among Iranian primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) patients with and without mutations in the CYP1B1 gene and to evaluate possible clinical variations associated with sex in these two groups. METHODS Phenotypical data on 104 unrelated Iranian PCG patients who had previously been screened for CYP1B1 mutations(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (CNS) that leads to an inflammatory demyelination and axonal damage. MS disease often displays a relapsing–remitting course of neurological manifestations that is mimicked by experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in animal models. The aim of the present research was to(More)
BACKGROUND The Bcl-2 protein family members have known as essential controllersof mitochondrial pathway of apoptosis. Bax has been implicated as potential tumor suppressor in certain solid tumors such as breast and colorectal carcinoma. DNA methylation of promoter associated CpG islands has known as a common mechanism for gene inactivation in tumor cells.(More)
