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)
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 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)
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)
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)
UNLABELLED The balance between apoptosis and proliferation is tipped towards a decrease of apoptosis as the colonocyte progresses in the adenoma to carcinoma sequence of colon carcinogenesis. According to literature data, proteins like p53, Ki-67, APAF-1, Ets-1, PTEN contribute to inhibition of apoptosis and stimulation of proliferation. AIM Considering(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)
UNLABELLED The main method for the early screening of the developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is the ultrasound imaging. There are several studies about the ultrasound imaging of newborns' hips, but only a few studies include the prenatal period of life. Our aim was to examine the prenatal development of the hip joint through the evolution of the α(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)
AIM OF THE STUDY Establishment of Ki67, p53 and CD34 expression in human tooth buds of different stages of odontogenetic development. MATERIALS AND METHODS Tissue samples containing tooth buds were removed from the incisor areas of human fetuses in different stages of development (weeks 9-10, 12-13, 13-16, 21-24), and from the canine and molar areas of(More)
