Purpose: Soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) and microsomal epoxide hydrolase (mEH) both catalyze the metabolism of epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs), lipid signaling molecules that are protective against ischemic brain injury owing to their participation in the regulation of vascular tone and cerebral blood flow. In addition, mEH metabolizes polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, one of the causative factors of atherosclerotic lesion development. In this study, we aimed to investigate the association of enzyme activity-modifying missense single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the sEH gene (EPHX2) and mEH gene (EPHX1) and ischemic stroke risk in a Turkish population.


Eicosanoid pathway in colorectal cancer: Recent updates
Tuncer, Sinem; Banerjee, Sreeparna (2015-11-07)
Enzymatic metabolism of the 20C polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) arachidonic acid (AA) occurs via the cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipoxygenase (LOX) pathways, and leads to the production of various bioactive lipids termed eicosanoids. These eicosanoids have a variety of functions, including stimulation of homeostatic responses in the cardiovascular system, induction and resolution of inflammation, and modulation of immune responses against diseases associated with chronic inflammation, such as cancer. Because...
Systemic Delivery of Bioactive Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 after Adenoviral-Mediated Gene Transfer in the Murine Salivary Gland
Voutetakis, Antonis; Cotrim, Ana P.; Rowzee, Anne; Zheng, Changyu; Rathod, Trushar; Yanık, Tülin; Loh, Y. Peng; Baum, Bruce J.; Cawley, Niamh X. (2010-09-01)
Anadenoviral (Ad) vector that expresses bioactive glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) was generated, and its effectiveness at modulating glucose homeostasis was evaluated after transduction of murine salivary glands. The construct was engineered with the signal sequence of mouse GH to direct the peptide into the secretory pathway, followed by a furin cleavage site and the GLP-1(7-37) sequence encoding an Ala to Gly substitution at position 8 to achieve resistance to degradation. When expressed in Neuro2A and CO...
DynaDom: structure-based prediction of T cell receptor inter-domain and T cell receptor-peptide-MHC (class I) association angles
Hoffmann, Thomas; Marıon, Antoıne; Antes, Iris (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-02-02)
Background: T cell receptor (TCR) molecules are involved in the adaptive immune response as they distinguish between self- and foreign-peptides, presented in major histocompatibility complex molecules (pMHC). Former studies showed that the association angles of the TCR variable domains (Va/V beta) can differ significantly and change upon binding to the pMHC complex. These changes can be described as a rotation of the domains around a general Center of Rotation, characterized by the interaction of two highly...

Chiral sulfoxides are used in asymmetric synthesis and are present in various biologically active compounds. Asymmetric synthesis of the sulfoxides has been performed by chiral metal complexes and non-metals containing peroxide and oxide moieties. In this study, a new metal free method has been developed to oxidize thioanisole into methyl phenyl sulfoxide with easily accessible chiral compounds carrying N-Cl bond. For this purpose, chiral amine and amide bearing reagents were synthesized and chlorinated by ...
Automatic detection of mitochondria from electron microscope tomography images: a curve fitting approach
Tasel, Serdar F.; HASSANPOUR, REZA; Mumcuoğlu, Ünal Erkan; Perkins, Guy; Martone, Maryann (2014-02-18)
Mitochondria are sub-cellular components which are mainly responsible for synthesis of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) and involved in the regulation of several cellular activities such as apoptosis. The relation between some common diseases of aging and morphological structure of mitochondria is gaining strength by an increasing number of studies. Electron microscope tomography (EMT) provides high-resolution images of the 3D structure and internal arrangement of mitochondria. Studies that aim to reveal the c...
