Accumulating evidence indicates that dysregulation of miRNAs could contribute to tumor growth and metastasis of chondrosarcoma by infuencing cell proliferation and invasion. In the current study, we are interested to examine the role of miRNAs in the carcinogenesis and progression of chondrosarcoma. Here, using comparative miRNA profiling of tissues and(More)
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) act as sensors of microbial components and elicit innate immune responses. All TLR signaling pathways activate the nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-κB), which controls the expression of inflammatory cytokine genes. Transforming growth factor-β-activated kinase 1 (TAK1) is a serine/threonine protein kinase that is critically involved in(More)
BACKGROUND Gonadotropin has been used to stimulate ovulation in clomiphene-resistant infertile women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), but it is associated with overstimulated cycles with the development of many follicles. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness and efficacy of letrozole and clomiphene citrate (CC) combined with human(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the impact of high circulating AMH on the outcome of CC ovulation induction in women with PCOS. METHODS This prospective cohort observational study included 81 anovulatory women with PCOS who underwent 213 cycles of CC ovarian stimulation. Serum AMH concentrations were measured on cycle day 3 before the commencement of CC in the(More)
Recent reports suggest that src suppressed c kinase substrates (SSeCKS) are early inflammatory response protein. However, there is only scarce knowledge on the functional role of SSeCKS in liver under conditions of acute inflammation. In the present study, we investigated SSeCKS expression in liver after administration of carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) in rats(More)
