Screening of Single Nucleotide Polymorphism in CD95 (APO-1/FAS) Promoter Region (G-1377A) in Children with Acute Leukemia

Dilara Fatma Akin Bali, Didem Torun Ozkan, Ahmet Emin Kurekci, Nejat Akar
CD95 is a cell surface receptor involved in apoptotic signal transmission. Deregulation of this pathway results in down regulation of apoptosis and subsequent persistence of a malignant clone. A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) resulting in guanine-to-adenine (G > A) transition in the CD95 promoter region (position ﹣1377) is thought to reduce stimulatory protein 1 (SP1) transcription factor binding and decrease CD95 express

The Investigation of the Apoptose Structural Effects and Mechanism in Leukemic Cells of Sirt1 Inhibitor Sirtinol

Dilara Fatma Akin, Mine Mumcuoglu, Didem Torun Ozkan, Nejat Akar, Ahmet Emin Kurekci
Human SIRT1 is an enzyme that deacetylates the p53 tumor suppressor protein. It has been suggested to modulate p53-dependent functions including DNA damage-induced cell death. Sirtuins are nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide dependent class III histone deacetylase proteins that play a crucial role in several cellular processes, including DNA repair, apoptosis, and lifespan. In this study, we investigated the relationship between sir

Effects of Cigarette Smoking on White Blood Cells Count and von Willebrand Factor Levels in Male Smokers in Khartoum State

Roaa Babikir Ahmed, Mahdi H. A. Abdalla
Background: Tobacco cigarette smoking is one of the major leading causes of death and essential public health challenge in world over. Elevated von Willebrand factor (vWF) concentrations are associated with an increased risk of ischemic heart disease. High total leukocyte count can promote cardiovascular diseases through multiple pathologic mechanisms, and has been considered as an independent predictor of
