This study investigated the immunohistochemical staining characteristics of glutathione-S-transferase alpha, pi, mu, theta and p53 in non-small cell lung carcinoma and normal lung tissue from 50 patients. The relationships between expressions of the Glutathione-S-transferase isoenzymes and some clinicopathological features were also examined. Expression of glutathione-S-transferase pi, mu, alpha, theta and p53 was assessed by immunohistochemistry for primary lung carcinomas of 50 patients from the Sanitarium Education and Research Hospital, Ankara lung cancer collection. The relationships between expression of the glutathione-S-transferase isoenzymes, p53 in normal and tumor tissue by Student T test and the clinicopathological data were also examined by Spearman Rank tests. When the normal and tumor tissue of these cases were compared according to their staining intensity and percentage of positive staining, glutathione-S-transferase alpha, pi, mu, theta expressions in tumor cells was significantly higher than normal cells (p<0.05). There was no significant difference in the expression of p53 between normal and tumor cells (p>0.05). When the immunohistochemical results of glutathione-S-transferase isoenzymes and p53 were correlated with the clinical parameters, there were no significant associations between glutathione-S-transferases and p53 expressions and tumor stage, tumor grade and smoking status (p>0.05).

Effects of selenium supplementation on rat heart apex and right ventricle myocardia by using FTIR spectroscopy: A cluster analysis and neural network approach
TOYRAN AL OTAİBİ, NESLİHAN; Severcan, Feride; Severcan, Mete; TURAN, Belma (Elsevier BV, 2008-10-01)
The effects of selenium supplementation on apex and right ventricle myocardia of the rat heart were investigated using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy by examining the changes in the frequency values of major absorptions arising from lipids and proteins. Cluster analysis was used to discriminate the selenium treated group from the control by utilizing two distinct spectral regions, belonging to absorptions arising from lipids and proteins, respectively. In addition, protein secondary structur...
The effect of diabetes on rat skeletal muscle tissues at molecular level
Bozkurt, Özlem; Severcan, Feride; Department of Biology (2006)
In the present study Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy was used to examine the effects of streptozotocin-induced diabetes mellitus on the structural components of slow- and fast-twitch rat skeletal muscles, at molecular level. Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disorder of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, which is characterized by hyperglycemia caused by a defective or deficient insulin secretory response. The effect of diabetes is seen on a variety of tissues leading to important secondary compl...
Evaluation of an aldo-keto reductase gene signature with prognostic significance in colon cancer via activation of epithelial to mesenchymal transition and the p70S6K pathway

AKR1B1 and AKR1B10, members of the aldo-keto reductase family of enzymes that participate in the polyol pathway of aldehyde metabolism, are aberrantly expressed in colon cancer. We previously showed that high expression of AKR1B1 (AKR1B1(HIGH)) was associated with enhanced motility, inflammation and poor clinical outcome in colon cancer patients. Using publicly available datasets and ex vivo gene expression analysis (n = 51, Ankara cohort), we have validated our previous in silico finding that AKR1B1(HIGH) ...
Evaluation of high hydrostatic pressure sensitivity of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli O157 : H7 by differential scanning calorimetry
Alpas, Hami; BOZOGLU, F; KALETUNC, G (Elsevier BV, 2003-11-01)
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) was used to evaluate the relative high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) resistances of bacterial strains from Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli O157:H7 in vivo. The total apparent enthalpy change and thermal stability were two DSC parameters used to compare bacterial strains of untreated control and pressure-treated bacteria. DSC thermograms indicated that ribosomal denaturation appears to be a major factor in cell death by both thermal and high pressure treatments...
Object-Oriented Segmentation of Cell Nuclei in Fluorescence Microscopy Images
Koyuncu, Can Fahrettin; Atalay, Rengül; GÜNDÜZ DEMİR, Çiğdem (Wiley, 2018-10-01)
Cell nucleus segmentation remains an open and challenging problem especially to segment nuclei in cell clumps. Splitting a cell clump would be straightforward if the gradients of boundary pixels in-between the nuclei were always higher than the others. However, imperfections may exist: inhomogeneities of pixel intensities in a nucleus may cause to define spurious boundaries whereas insufficient pixel intensity differences at the border of overlapping nuclei may cause to miss some true boundary pixels. In co...
