Pre-eclampsia (PE) is a complication of pregnancy that affects 5‑8% of women after 20 weeks of gestation. It is usually diagnosed based on the de novo onset of hypertension and proteinuria. Preexisting hypertension in women developing PE, also known as superimposed PE on chronic hypertension (SPE), leads to elevated risk of maternal and fetal mortality. PE(More)
BACKGROUND Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA type I, II and III) is an autosomal recessive neuromuscular disorder caused by mutations in the survival motor neuron gene (SMN1). SMN2 is a centromeric copy gene that has been characterized as a major modifier of SMA severity. SMA type I patients have one or two SMN2 copies while most SMA type II patients carry three(More)
We present a comparative analysis of the allelic polymorphisms of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) gene family, including MMP3 (rs3025058), MMP7 (rs11568818), MMP9 (rs17576, rs2250889), MMP12 (rs2276109), and MMP13 (rs2252070), in patients with external genital endometriosis (EGE) and in a control group of healthy women proven to be free of disease by(More)
Pre-eclampsia is the most common complication occurring during pregnancy. In the majority of cases, it is concurrent with other pathologies in a comorbid manner (frequent co-occurrences in patients), such as diabetes mellitus, gestational diabetes and obesity. Providing bronchial asthma, pulmonary tuberculosis, certain neurodegenerative diseases and cancers(More)
The review considers the original and published data on the molecular genetic basis of proximal spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), the most common monogenic neuromuscular disease. The structures of the SMN1 gene and SMN2 pseudogene, mutations distorting the SMN1 function, the structure and functions of the Smn neurotrophic protein, its role in biogenesis of(More)
We used high-density microarrays to investigate polymorphisms in more than 1500 genetic markers, associated with risks for a wide range of multifactorial diseases. We identified a set of 31 genes, whose products are associated with the risk of preeclampsia, based on the functional annotations of the genes in the bioinformatics resources, DAVID and GFINDer.(More)
The densitometry of cosmonauts after long-term missions shows a reduction of bone mineral density (BMD). On average, the postflight BMD remains within the normal range and the broad variability of individual BMD values is sometimes regarded as local osteopenia. Individual reactions are classified by the similarity of amount and rate of BMD loss. Today, the(More)
Uterine leiomyoma (UL) is a benign and most common tumor that affects 20–45% of women of fertile age. In this study, we analyzed the MED12 gene second exon nucleotide sequence from 15 DNA samples extracted from LM of 15 subjects with uterine leiomyoma and 15 DNA samples extracted from peripheral blood leukocytes of the same female subjects. It was shown(More)
In this review, we summarize data on 5-hydroxymethylcytosine—a modification of cytosine with a recently discovered epigenetic effect. We discuss the biochemical mechanisms of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine generation and further modification in the mammalian genome, analyze the role of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine in the epigenetic reprogramming during mammalian(More)
