This study aimed to determine whether the coding (A4889G) and noncoding region (T6235C) polymorphisms of the gene coding for cytochrome P4501A1 (CYP1A1), a xenobiotic-metabolizing enzyme responsible for the metabolism of carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, are involved in the pathogenesis of ischemic stroke in Turkish population. Study group consisted of 226 ischemic stroke patients and 113 controls. Genotypes were attained by allele-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for A4889G and PCR/restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis for T6235C. Frequency of 6235C allele was significantly lower in patients (0.151) compared with controls (0.226, P = 0.015). Prevalence of hypertension and hypertension-associated ischemic stroke risk was lower for 6235C allele carriers. This allele decreased ischemic stroke risk twofold (adjusted odds ratio = 0.48, P = 0.005). There was almost no difference in 4889G allele frequencies in patients (0.445) and controls (0.425). However, prevalence of hypertension was lower in 4889G allele carriers when compared with the wild-type genotypes. In addition, risk of ischemic stroke for smoker and hypertensive individuals was lower when they have at least one 4889G allele. The present study demonstrated that CYP1A1 genetic variants contribute to interindividual variability in smoking- and hypertension-induced ischemic stroke risk.

Cytochrome P4502B-type protein from feral leaping mullet (Liza Saliens) liver microsomes: its isolation and biochemical and immunological characterization
Bozcaarmutlu, Azra; Arınç, Emel; Department of Biochemistry (2002)
Cytochrome P450s constitute a superfamily of hemoproteins that play important roles in oxidative metabolism of endogenous and exogenous compounds, and serve as catalysts that are significant in numerous and diverse biological pathways. The extent to which these various pathways or functions occur in different animal groups depend on a large degree on the participation of different P450 proteins present, their catalytic function and their regulation. Cytochrome P4502B subfamily is generally associated with d...
Cytochrome P4501A and associated mixed-function oxidase induction in fish as a biomarker for toxic carcinogenic pollutants in the aquatic environment
Arinc, E; Sen, A; Bozcaarmutlu, A (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2000-06-01)
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), dioxins, dibenzofurans, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) present in polluted environment induce cytochrome P4501A (CYP1A) isozyme in fish, which in turn results in a marked increased production of carcinogenic metabolites from PAHs. The induction of hepatic CYP1A in fish by certain classes of chemicals has been suggested as an early warning system, a "most sensitive biological response" for assessing environmental contamination conditions. This has implications f...
Thermostability and regulation of Clostridium thermocellum L-lactate dehydrogenase expressed in Escherichia coli
Assa, P; Ozkan, M; Özcengiz, Gülay (2005-01-01)
In this study, L-lactate dehydrogenase (L-LDH) of Clostridium thermocellum previously cloned aid expressed in Escherichia coli FMJ39 was partially purified and characterised. Optimum temperature and pH of the enzyme were found as 50 degrees C and 7.5, respectively. Different concentrations of Mn2+ did not affect the enzyme activity. Addition of 20-30 mM Mg2+, or the other hand, increased the LDH activity by about 10%. Relatively high concentrations of NaCl (2 M), fructose-1,6-diphosphate (FDP, 5 mM), ATP (1...
Dna repair genes, xrcc3 and rad51, polymorphisms and risk of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia
Tanrıkut, Cihan; Arınç, Emel; Çoruh, Nursen; Department of Biochemistry (2010)
In this study, the role of two DNA repair genes, X-ray repair cross complementing group 3 (XRCC3) Thr241Met and Rad51 G135C polymorphisms were investigated in the risk of development of childhood ALL in Turkish population among 193 healthy controls and 184 ALL patients, by using PCR-RFLP technique. For XRCC3 Thr241Met polymorphism, the frequencies of both heterozygous and homozygous mutant genotypes were found to be higher in the controls compared to ALL patients (OR: 0.59, p = 0.02; OR: 0.48, p = 0.02, res...
Importance of NOS3 Genetic Polymorphisms in the Risk of Development of Ischemic Stroke in the Turkish Population
ÖZÇELİK, AYSUN; CAN DEMİRDÖĞEN, BİRSEN; Demirkaya, Seref; Adalı, Orhan (2014-12-01)
In the present study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between endothelial nitric oxide synthase 3 (NOS3) G894T, T-786C, and intron 4 variable number of tandem repeat (VNTR) variants, alone or in combination, and the risk of incidence of ischemic stroke in the Turkish population. The genotypes for all polymorphisms were determined by polymerase chain reaction/restriction fragment length polymorphism techniques on 245 ischemic stroke patients and 145 controls. In the case-control analysis, no signifi...
