Determination of hypothalamic neuropeptide levels involved in appetite regulation in atypical antipsychotic drug, risperidone treatment
Kurşungöz, Canan; Yanık, Tülin; Department of Biology (2012)
Although the use of atypical antipsychotic drugs is successful in the treatment of schizophrenia, they cause complications in the long term use that is mainly weight gain. In this study, circulating levels of hypothalamic neuropeptides/hormones, which are related to appetite regulation; neuropeptide Y (NPY), alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH), cocaine and amphethamine regulated transcript (CART) and plus leptin in male schizophrenic patients who were treated with an atypical antipsychotic drug, ri...

In this study, 3D-electrode contactless dielectrophoresis (DEP) system is utilized to drive a relationship between the drug resistance level and dielectrophoretic response of doxorubicin resistant K562 (K562/dox) cells. The number of trapped cells, stained fluorescently, is ascertained by measuring the light intensity with Image J. For accurate counting of cells through intensity analysis, an algorithm was developed, which exploits cell transparency. K562/dox cells resistant to 100, 300, 500 and 1000 nM dox...
Determination of oil and moisture distribution in fried potatoes using magnetic resonance imaging
ISIK, Betul; Şahin, Serpil; Öztop, Halil Mecit (Wiley, 2018-10-01)
The objective of this study was to examine oil and moisture distribution in fried potatoes using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as nondestructive technique and to establish a correlation between moisture content and oil content of fried potatoes with MRI results. In addition, it was aimed to evaluate the effects of frying time, predrying and precoating by hydroxyprophylmethylcellulose (HPMC) on moisture loss and oil uptake of the samples. Coating with HPMC was the best pretreatment to reduce oil uptake. S...

Determination of Autophagy in the Caco-2 Spontaneously Differentiating Model of Intestinal Epithelial Cells
Tunçer, Sinem; Banerjee, Sreeparna (Springer New York, 2017)
The Caco-2 colorectal cancer cell line is widely used as a model for intestinal differentiation and barrier function. These cells, upon reaching confluency, spontaneously differentiate into enterocyte-like cells, synthesize intestinal enzymes, and form domes. Caco-2 cells also undergo autophagy in the course of differentiation. The criteria to establish the induction of autophagy in cells are already well established. Here, we describe the protocol for the spontaneous differentiation of Caco-2 cells and the...
