Genetic polymorphisms of vitamin D3 metabolizing CYP24A1 and CYP2R1 enzymes in Turkish patients with ischemic stroke
(Taylor and Francis Ltd., 2018-05-04)
Objective: Vitamin D deficiency is known as an important risk factor in pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, which contributes to stroke development. Genetic variations including single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in enzymes ...
Association analysis of Glutathione S-transferase omega-1 and omega-2 genetic polymorphisms and ischemic stroke risk in a Turkish population
(Taylor and Francis Ltd., 2019-02-01)
Objectives: Oxidative stress is a known risk factor for the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, the main cause of ischemic stroke. Glutathione S-transferase (GST) omega-1 and omega-2, members of phase II enzymes, play a role ...
Engineering musculoskeletal tissue interfaces
(Frontiers Media S. A., 2018-04-30)
Tissue engineering aims to bring together biomaterials, cells, and signaling molecules within properly designed microenvironments in order to create viable treatment options for the lost or malfunctioning tissues. Design ...
The effects of hydraulic calcium silicate containing endodontic materials on oxidative stress in erythrocytes and liver
(Turkish Biochemistry SocietyTürk Biyokimya Derneği, 2018-06-01)
Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of hydraulic calcium silicate endodontic cements, MTA Angelus, MTA Fillapex, and Theracal LC, on erythrocyte and liver oxidative stress parameters of rats. ...

Evaluation of tear and aqueous humor level, and genetic variants of connective tissue growth factor as biomarkers for early detection of pseudoexfoliation syndrome/glaucoma
(Academic Press, 2019-12)
Pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX) may lead to the development of pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PEG), a potential cause of irreversible blindness, if left untreated. This type of glaucoma often presents with much higher ...
Paraoxonase 1 (PON1) promoter (−107T/C) and coding region (192Q/R and 55L/M) genetic variations in pseudoexfoliation syndrome and pseudoexfoliative glaucoma risk
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2019-10)
Purpose Pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX) is characterized by the accumulation of microscopic extracellular material in the anterior chamber of the eye and can lead to the development of pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PEG) in ...
Potential role of calcifying nanoparticles in the etiology of multiple sclerosis
(Churchill Livingstone, 2019-07)
Nanobacteria or calcifying nanoparticles are 80–500 nm sized nano-organisms that are physically associated with carbonate apatite mineral formations. They have been indicated in various diseases, including kidney stone ...
Graphene/Copper Heterostructures for Thermal Management
(Science & Technology Organization Collaboration Support Office Applied Vehicle Technology Panel, 2019)
With the technological developments in the microelectronic systems used in military computers, the number of circuit elements per unit area increases enabling the production of faster and more efficient processors. To be ...
In vitro and in vivo bacterial antifouling properties of phosphite plasma-Treated silicone
(ICE Publishing, 2018-12-10)
In order to improve their bacterial antifouling property, silicone surfaces were functionalized through the plasma polymerization (PP) technique using diethyl phosphite as the precursor. The functionalized surfaces were ...
