Cytokines are extremely potent biomolecules that regulate cellular functions and play multiple roles in initiation and inhibition of disease. These highly specialised macromolecules are actively involved in control of cellular proliferation, apoptosis, cell migration and adhesion. This work, investigates the effect of transforming growth factor-bet...

Background. Evaluation of any material that is utilised for clinical applications is essential in order to ensure that it acquires physical, mechanical and biocompatible properties required for its proposed function. Understanding of the conditions that regulate the mechanical and physical characteristics of a material particularly biopolymers is c...

Regeneration of a damaged or non-functioning tissue requires adhesion of cells to their extracellular matrix (ECM). Thus the investigation of the level of synthesised cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) in cell culture systems play major roles in cell and tissue engineering. Adhesion of chondrocyte to a collagen type-II rich matrix, is dependent on cell...

We undertook biochemical, hormonal, cytological analysis and sequencing CAG repetitions of androgen receptor gene in order to elucidate the cause of clinical polymorphism of Klinefelter syndrome. Elevated levels of LH (19.8 ± 4.2 E/l), FSH (22.7 ± 6.1 U/l), total cholesterol (6.8 ± 2.6 mmol/l), triglycerides (3.3 ± 1.0 mmol/l), and glucose (9.9 ± 3...

The hematological and molecular genetic analysis of samples taken from patients with suspected β-thalassemia were made by Reverse Dot-Blot Hybridization StripAssay (RDBH StripAssay). A complete blood count (HB, MCH, MCV, MCHC, RBC, Hct, HbA2, HbF) was run, serum iron and ferritin concentrations were monitored, and molecular analysis by RDBH was car...

Introduction: The complex of the hematological, biochemical and molecular genetic studies was analyzed in some regions of Azerbaijan, which had been characterized by the historical foci of malaria, to identify cases of the sickle cell anemia (SCA) and thalassemia. Methods: It were determinate RBC, HbA, Hct, RTC, MCV, MCH, MCHC, serum iron, serum fe...

Two Azerbaijani families were examined to determine the nature of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. Blood samples from neonatal infants with jaundice, their siblings, and parents were an object of this investigation. The pedigrees of the probands were compiled and analyzed. The levels of hemoglobin, red blood cells, and bilirubin and the activity of glu...

IThe purpose of this study was to evaluate of the efficiency of RDBH-method and Big DyeTM Terminator technology in an accurate diagnosis of β-thalassemia and the allelic polymorphism of β-globin cluster. It was done a complete hematology analysis (HB, MCH, MCV, MCHC, RBC, Hct, HbA2, HbF, Serum iron, Serum ferritin at four children (males, 6-10 year...
