Islam is the second most practiced religion in India, next to Hinduism. It is still unclear whether the spread of Islam in India has been only a cultural transformation or is associated with detectable levels of gene flow. To estimate the contribution of West Asian and Arabian admixture to Indian Muslims, we assessed genetic variation in mtDNA,(More)
In this study we investigated in vitro and in vivo xenograft growth inhibition by crocin isolated from Kashmiri saffron (Crocus sativus). It was found that crocin decreased cell viability in DLA cells, in a concentration- and time-dependent manner. Significant increase in the lifespan of Dalton's lymphoma bearing animals was noted by 37% and 44%,(More)
The origin and relationships of Indian Muslims is still dubious and are not yet genetically well studied. In the light of historically attested movements into Indian subcontinent during the demic expansion of Islam, the present study aims to substantiate whether it had been accompanied by any gene flow or only a cultural transformation phenomenon. An array(More)
Mandibuloacral dysplasia with type A lipodystrophy (MADA) is a rare genetic disorder inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion characterized by hypoplasia of the mandible and clavicles, acroosteolysis and lipodystrophy due to mutations in the LMNA or ZMPSTE24 genes. In the current study, we have investigated a consanguineous family clinically diagnosed(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the molecular basis of retinitis pigmentosa in two consanguineous families of Pakistani origin with multiple affected members. METHODS Homozygosity mapping and Sanger sequencing of candidate genes were performed in one family while the other was analyzed with whole exome next-generation sequencing. A minigene splicing assay was used(More)
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Iran. In the recent years an upward trend has been observed in the Iranian population. Early detection by molecular approaches may reduce breast cancer morbidity and mortality. We provided consultation to 3,782 women diagnosed with early onset breast cancer during the past 15 years (1999-2014). To establish a data(More)
INTRODUCTION Van der Woude syndrome (VWS) is the most frequent form of syndromic cleft lip and palate (SCLP) accounting for 2% of all patients with CLP. CASE PRESENTATION We describe the orthodontic treatment of a girl diagnosed with VWS referred by her family dentist for her cosmetic concerns. DISCUSSION Comprehensive orthodontic treatment, secondary(More)
This study aims to ascertain the genetic variants which contribute to the most common types of MPS in eleven Iranian families. Clinical and biochemical features were obtained during initial examination and patients were further investigated for genetic defects in the MPS genes. Peripheral blood samples were obtained from all family members after obtaining(More)
Breast cancer (BC) is the second most common cancer in the world and by far the most frequent cancer among women, with an estimated 1.67 million new cancer cases diagnosed in 2012 (25% of all cancers). Polygene expression analysis is used to predict the prognosis and determine the most appropriate treatment regimen. The objective of this study was to(More)
