Article
Background: Atherosclerosis is a disease of the arterial wall with predilection to some sites on others. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of the non-coding RNAs regulating the target gene expression at post-transcriptional level. Different miRNAs were found at distinct stages of plaque development and expression of miRNAs’ might play an important rol...
Article
Background and aims Genetic and environmental factors are important components of the development of atherosclerosis. Long non-coding RNA (lncRNAs) have emerged as regulators of multiple pathophysiological pathways in the cardiovascular system. Here, we investigated potential associations between lncRNAs and atherosclerosis. Methods Tissue samples...

Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a tick-borne disease caused by the Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV). Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are type 1 transmembrane proteins of immune cells that play a critical role in innate and adaptive immunity. The present study first time aims to investigate the relation between TLR10 gene polymorph...
Article
Objective: Coroner artery disease, the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, is an inflammatory disease. XRCC1 gene is playing the role of scaffolding protein for the base excision repair (BER) and single strand break (SSB) repair. Methods: The study population consisted of 402 participants living in the same region, classified int...
Article
Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is an infectious disease that is caused by CCHF virus. A family of transmembrane receptors called as Toll-like receptors (TLRs) selectively acts in recognizing a wide range of microbial components and endogenous molecules released by damaged tissue and have been preserved throughout evolution. TLRs initiate so...

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of fatalities worldwide. Nuclear factor (NF)-κB is a transcription factor that controls cell proliferation, differentiation and immunity. To the best of our knowledge, the present study is the first investigation of the association between CAD and NF-κB1 -94 W/D/NF-κBIA 3'-untranslated region (3'-U...
Article
Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a viral zoonosis. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) initiate signaling cascades leading to the activation of the innate immune system following CCHF infection. In this study, TLR7 (Gln11Leu, c.4-151A/G, and +1817G/T) polymorphisms were investigated in CCHF patients using polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based restr...

Aim. Atherosclerosis is regarded as a chronic inflammatory disease developing in response to injury in the vessel wall. Inflammation plays a key role in the development of atherosclerosis. Interleukin- 1α (IL-1α) has a critical role on regulation of proinflammation. The aim the study was to assess the relationship between the IL-1α -889 C/T polymor...
Article
Amaç. Genetik ve çevresel faktörler arasındaki ilişki sonucu ortaya çıkan kardiyovasküler hastalıkların gelişiminde inflamasyon anahtar rol oynamaktadır. İnterlökin-1α (IL-1α) nın proinflamasyon regülasyonunda önemli rolü vardır. Bu çalışmada IL-1α-889 C/T polimorfizmi ile ateroskleroz arasındaki ilişkinin araştırılması amaçlanmıştır. Yöntem. Bu...

Coronary artery disease (CAD), which is now regarded as a chronic inflammatory disease, is the leading cause of death worldwide. Nuclear factor (NF)-κB is a transcription factor that plays an important role in the regulation of the immune system. NF-κBIA is the inhibitory version of NF-κB. This study is the first investigation of the association be...
