Factor V Leiden G1691A and Prothrombin G20210A mutations are associated with repeated spontaneous miscarriage in Northern area of Saudi Arabia

Maternally inherited thrombophilia could be one of the causes of recurrent spontaneous miscarriage (RSM). We aimed to investigate the frequency of three thrombotic gene variants; factor V Leiden (FVL; G1691A), prothrombin (PTH; G20210A), and methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR; C677T) in Saudi patients diagnosed with RSM. A case control study was conducted on.. Read More»

AluYb8 insertion in the WNK1 gene is not associated with hypertension in a Russian Caucasian population

WNK1 (With No-lysine Kinase 1), a serine-threonine kinase, regulates blood pressure by acting on various sodium transport-related ion channels. Several studies report a link between common variants of the WNK1 gene and hypertension. No data exists on Russian populations. Our aim was to evaluate the association between the WNK1 AluYb8 polymorphism and hypertension su.. Read More»

IGF2BP2 gene polymorphism in the pathogenesis of vitiligo

Vitiligo is a disorder of pigmentation presenting with loss of melanocytes in the epidermis and hair follicles. The gene for insulin-like growth factor binding protein 2 (IGF2BP2) is located on the third chromosome and it plays role in growth, development, cellular differentiation, and metabolism. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the rs1470579 and rs440.. Read More»

Comparison of three methods for diagnosis of Trypanosoma (Duttonella) vivax in cattle

Detection of Trypanosoma vivax in cattle is based on parasitological, serological and molecular methods. The aim of this study was to compare three different methods for detecting T. vivax during an outbreak of trypanosomiasis in southeast Brazil. Blood samples were collected from seventy-two animals to perform micro-hematocrit centrifugation technique (MHCT), indir.. Read More»
