It is thought that dysregulation of E-cadherin, syndecan-1 (CD138) and Ets-1 is involved in carcinoma development. E-cadherin is an important epithelial cell adhesion molecule; syndecan-1 (CD138) is a regulatory proteoglycan in both cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion and Ets-1 is a proto-oncogene and transcription factor, which takes part in extracellular(More)
Our immunohistochemical study wants to be a contribution to clarifying the adenoma-carcinoma sequence and serrated pathway of colorectal carcinogenesis. Thus, we performed immunohistochemical analysis of hyperplastic polyps (HP), serrated adenomas (SA), and classical adenomas (tubular adenomas - TA and tubulovillous adenomas - TVA) and carcinomas developed(More)
The cerebral cortex ensures an optimal interaction of mammals, including humans, with their environment, by encoding, storing and combining information about the surrounding world and the internal milieu. Probably the simplest and the most popular region for studying the cortical network is the hippocampal CA1 area, because it has the least heterogeneous(More)
UNLABELLED Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is characterized by the Philadelphia chromosome and the BCR-ABL fusion gene that encodes an abnormal tyrosine kinase. Development of specific tyrosine kinase inhibitors completely changed the management of these patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between April 2008 and July 2012, at the Molecular Biology(More)
Inhibition in the central nervous system is largely mediated by local-circuit neurons that release GABA (gamma-amino-butyric acid). GABAA-receptors play a major role in virtually all brain physiological functions and serve as targets for numerous classes of drugs, used both in clinical practice and as research tools. These receptors are heteropentamers,(More)
INTRODUCTION HER2, EGFR, p53 and PTEN are important in organization of the germ layers, in embryonic development and morphogenesis, in the development and differentiation of certain organ systems and in embryonic morphogenesis. Our goal is the comparative examination of the expression of these markers in the digestive tract of 9-24-week-old fetuses. (More)
The effects of two wonder drugs, simvastatins and fenofibrates on the proximal part of the femoris of a series of ovariectomized and non-ovariectomized Wistar albino rats was estimated qualitatively and semi-quantitatively by the modern method of 1D 1H-NMR T2-distribution. The 72 rats subjected to this study were divided in six groups and were sacrificed at(More)
UNLABELLED The Philadelphia chromosome and the resulting BCR-ABL fusion gene represent the hallmark event in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and their discoveries radically changed the management of these patients. Currently Wilms tumor 1 gene (WT1) is intensively investigated as high WT1 expression levels have been demonstrated in case of multiple solid(More)
UNLABELLED The study of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations in lung adenocarcinoma patients has a special clinical significance in the selection of patients for tyrosine-kinase inhibitor therapy. The aim of this study was to identify patients with EGFR mutations using allele-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR), from formalin-fixed(More)
The vomeronasal organ (VNO) is the receptor structure of the vomeronasal system (VNS) in vertebrates. It is found bilaterally in the submucosa of the inferior part of the nasal septum. There are ongoing controversies regarding the functionality of this organ in humans. In this study we propose the immunohistochemical evaluation of changes in components of(More)
