Background: Polymorphisms in the genes encoding the cytochrome P450 2C9 enzyme ( CYP2C9 ) and the vitamin K epoxide reductase (VKORC1) are known to contribute to variability in sensitivity to coumarins. Patients with certain common genetic variants of CYP2C9 (*2 & *3) or a VKORC1 polymorphism...
Aim: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate the expression of many genes and may be involved in regulating the immune response. Expression of microRNA 146a (miRNA 146a) in peripheral blood mononuclear cells was studied by real-time polymerase chain reaction in 70 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), 45...
Background: Kawasaki disease (KD) involves a complex interaction of immunoinflammatory process, cytokine activation, and genetic factors. We aimed to investigate whether genetic variations in a major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class could be used as markers of susceptibility in KD and...
Pharmacogenetic testing of drug metabolizing enzyme polymorphisms provides an important tool to improve prescribing decisions, avoiding therapeutic failure and adverse drug reactions. Cytochrome P450 2D6 isoform plays an important role in the metabolism of about 20%–25% of widely used clinical...
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) is a type of cytokine that inhibits tumorigenesis. Several studies have assessed the relationship between the polymorphism of TNF-alpha 308G/A and the susceptibility to colon cancer; however, the results have been controversial. A case-control study was carried out to...
Aims: Polymorphisms of genes encoding phase II metabolic enzymes, for example, glutathione S-transferase, have been linked with hypertension. The present study aimed at finding out the association between GSTM1 and GSTT1 polymorphism and hypertension in a population from North–East India....
Methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) plays a significant role in the metabolism of methionine. MTHFR deficiency is an autosomal recessive trait that could be a significant risk factor for a number of defects, for example, vascular events, due to lower dietary folate intake among South...
Background: Hypertension is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity in the world, which is influenced by environmental and genetic factors. The methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase ( MTHFR ) and angiotensin-converting enzymes ( ACE ) are possible candidate genes that may influence...
Deletions and duplications of single or multiple exons in specific genes are associated with human diseases. Multiplex ligation-dependant probe amplification (MLPA), a technique recently introduced to clinical laboratories, can detect deletions or duplications at the exon level. MLPA kits have a...
