Objective: Increased oxidative stress is now related with the pathogenesis and the chronic complications associated with the disease, diabetes mellitus. While roles of oxidative stress in diabetic complications are widely studied, the molecular mechanisms playing role in the regulations of detoxification enzymes in the presence of antioxidants have not been clearly established because of the complexity of the pathways.

The effects of streptozotocin induced-diabetes on rat testes and the recovery role of vitamin c
Güldağ, Damla; Severcan, Feride; Department of Biology (2012)
Type I Diabetes is a multisystem disease having both biochemical and structural consequences. It causes alterations in carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolisms due to hyperglycemia. Type I diabetes is also correlated with increased formation of free radicals and decreased levels of antioxidant potential. Lower endogeneous antioxidant amounts and elevated lipid peroxidation levels in diabetes constitute the basis of risk factors for the development of diabetic complications. These complications lead to irr...
Impaired inhibitory GABAergic synaptic transmission and transcription studied in single neurons by Patch-seq in Huntington's disease
Paraskevopoulou, Foteini; Parvizi, Poorya; Senger, Gokce; Tunçbağ, Nurcan; Rosenmund, Christian; Yildirim, Ferah (2021-05-11)
Transcriptional dysregulation in Huntington's disease (HD) causes functional deficits in striatal neurons. Here, we performed Patchsequencing (Patch-seq) in an in vitro HD model to investigate the effects of mutant Huntingtin (Htt) on synaptic transmission and gene transcription in single striatal neurons. We found that expression of mutant Htt decreased the synaptic output of striatal neurons in a cell autonomous fashion and identified a number of genes whose dysregulation was correlated with physiological...
Molecular investigation of therapeutical effects of Ɣ-tocotrienol conjugation therapy with doxorubicin on hepatocellular carcinoma cell line HePG2
Özyurt, İpek; Son, Çağdaş Devrim; Department of Biology (2017)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth leading tumor of the liver tissue in terms of frequency of occurrence and third in terms of mortality. Even though, the most widely used chemotherapeutic agent doxorubicin in treatment of HCC had a great impact for development of therapeutic strategies preventing the progression of tumor formation and elucidating the physiological characteristics of tumor tissue. Moreover, use of doxorubicin minimizes the side effects of the drug in the individual and prevents the...
Context dependent isoform specific PI3K inhibition confers drug resistance in hepatocellular carcinoma cells.

Background: Targeted therapies for Primary liver cancer (HCC) is limited to the multi-kinase inhibitors, and not fully effective due to the resistance to these agents because of the heterogeneous molecular nature of HCC developed during chronic liver disease stages and cirrhosis. Although combinatorial therapy can increase the efficiency of targeted therapies through synergistic activities, isoform specific effects of the inhibitors are usually ignored. This study concentrated on PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway and t...
Gene expressions of Mn-SOD and GPx-1 in streptozotocin-induced diabetes: effect of antioxidants
Sadi, Goekhan; Güray, Nülüfer Tülün (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-07-01)
Increased oxidative stress and impaired antioxidant defense mechanisms are believed to be the important factors contributing to the pathogenesis and progression of diabetes mellitus. In this study, we have reported the effects of the streptozotocin-induced diabetes on the gene expression and the activities of two antioxidant enzymes, manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GPx). We also studied the effects of two antioxidants, vitamin C and DL-alpha-lipoic acid (LA), on the system...
