Adalı, Orhan
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 significant difference was observed between stroke patients and controls with respect to NOS3 G894T, T-786C, and intron 4 VNTR polymorphisms genotype and allele frequency distribution. However, the copresence of G894T and intron 4 VNTR risk-elevating genotypes in the same individual increased the risk of stroke seven times (odds ratio=7.083, 95% confidence interval=0.866-57.963, p=0.029).

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between -174G/C interleukin-6 (IL-6) gene promoter polymorphism and susceptibility to chronic lymphocytic (CLL), chronic myelogenous (CML) and acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) in Turkish patients.
Assessment of pollution in the West Black Sea Coast of Turkey using biomarker responses in fish
BOZCAARMUTLU, AZRA; Sapmaz, Canan; Aygun, Zuleyha; Arinc, Emel (Elsevier BV, 2009-05-01)
Aim of this study was to determine the extent of pollution in the West Black Sea Coast of Turkey by measuring CYP1A associated EROD activity, phase II enzyme, glutathione S-transferase and antioxidant enzymes, catalase and glutathione reductase activities and immunochemical detection of CYP1A protein level in the liver of mullet. The fish samples were caught from six locations having a varying degree of pollution in the West Black Sea Region of Turkey in August 2005, 2006 and 2007. Mullets caught from Zongu...
Cytochrome P4501A1 genotypes and smoking- and hypertension-related ischemic stroke risk
Demirdöğen, B. Can; Adali, A.Ç.; Bek, S.; Demirkaya, Ş.; Adalı, Orhan (SAGE Publications, 2012-10-30)
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/res...
The role of the cross pathway control protein in the stress response and adaptation of aspergillus species to antifungals
Amarsaikhan, Nansalmaa; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm; Bakır, Ufuk; Department of Biotechnology (2010)
In this study, the adaptation and response of Aspergillus nidulans and Aspergillus fumigatus wild type and cpcA strains to antifungal compounds were studied using cultural, genetic and proteomic methods. CpcA is the fungal cross pathway control protein which may also have a role in the development of resistance to antifungal that has become a major problem in human and plant fungal diseases and many studies are devoted to address the drug resistance mechanisms. Cell adapts itself to stress when it is subje...
Influence of oxygen transfer on benzaldehyde lyase production by recombinant Escherichia coli BL21(DE3) pLySs
Angardi, Vahideh; Çalık, Pınar; Department of Chemical Engineering (2007)
In this study, the effects of oxygen transfer conditions on the synthesis of the enzyme benzaldehyde lyase as intracellular in recombinant E. coli BL21 (DE3) pLysS was investigated sistematically and a comprehensive model was developed to determine benzaldehyde lyase activity. For this purpose, the research program was carried out in mainly two parts. In the first part of study, the effects of oxygen transfer together with the mass transfer coefficient (KLa), enhancement factor E (=KLa/KLao), volumetric oxy...
