Investigating possible involvement of miR-125b in the E2, NF-кB network
Yavuz, Esra; Erson Bensan, Ayşe Elif; Department of Biology (2015)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in diverse biological processes and are emerging as key regulators of tumorigenesis and tumor progression. Some miRNAs act as tumor suppressors and are downregulated in cancers such as miR-125b in breast cancer cell lines and tumors. Earlier, we developed a miR-125b expression model system and performed a transcriptomics experiment. Among many indirect targets, ALCAM (activated leukocyte antigen molecule) appeared to be very significantly upregulated in MCF7-125b cell...
Characterisation of immune responses in type I interferon associated diseases
Gül, Ersin; Gürsel, Mayda; Department of Biology (2016)
Type-I interferonopathies are a heterogeneous group of diseases arising from deregulation in nucleic acid sensing pathways, leading to constitutive type-I interferon release and pathology. DNA damage, if not repaired can also potentially activate such pathways. To test the hypothesis that 2 different DNA damage repair and immune deficiencies, Ataxia telangiectasia (AT) and Artemis deficiency could suffer from clinical manifestations associated with elevated type I IFN response, we compared the immune status...
Investigation of the molecular pathways involved in intestinal epithelial differentiation
Sade Memişoğlu, Aslı; Banerjee, Sreeparna; Department of Biology (2014)
The molecular mechanisms of balanced and continuous generation of intestinal epithelial cells, is poorly understood and disruption of this balance may result in neoplastic transformation and malignant growth. Differentiation is regulated by numerous signals, which in turn regulate signaling pathways directing activation or inactivation of certain transcription factors. Perturbations like changes in Ca2+ levels, glucose or amino acid starvation result in an ER stress response, which is also implicated in the...
Investigation of Multi-task Deep Neural Networks in Automated Protein Function Prediction
Rifaioğlu, Ahmet Süreyya; Martin, Maria Jesus; Atalay, Rengül; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan; Doğan, Tunca (2017-07-20)
Functional annotation of proteins is a crucial research field for understanding molecular mechanisms of living-beings and for biomedical purposes (e.g. identification of disease-causing functional changes in genes and for discovering novel drugs). Several Gene Ontology (GO) based protein function prediction methods have been proposed in the last decade to annotate proteins. However, considering the prediction performances of the proposed methods, it can be stated that there is still room for significant imp...
An Investigation of poly(A) site selection loci in estrogen treated breast cancer cells
Bekar, Damla; Erson Bensan, A. Elif.; Department of Biology (2019)
Alternative polyadenylation (APA) is an mRNA processing step implicated in 3’UTR (Untranslated Region) isoform diversity, which may have significant impacts on protein levels. Nearly 70% of known human genes harbor multiple polyA sites. Proliferative signals, developmental cues and tissue specificity can induce alternative selection of polyA sites, producing transcripts with different 3’UTR lengths. Given that APA generates a vast isoform diversity, there are possible mechanistic explanations emerging on ho...
