BACKGROUND: MDM4 is a negative regulator of the p53 tumor suppression pathway. Recent studies have revealed that the rs4245739 A>C polymorphism of MDM4 in the 3-untranslated region makes it a miR-191 target site which leads to lower MDM4 expression. This study is aimed to detect if rs4245739 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of the MDM4 gene influences the breast cancer development in Iranian-Azeri women. METHODS: Blood samples were taken from 260 healthy controls and 220 breast cancer women with ethnicity of Iranian-Azeri...

Cancers are among the most serious threats of human health worldwide. Survival and mortality rates of colorectal cancer (CRC) strongly depend on the early diagnosis. The aberrant methylation pattern of genes as a diagnostic biomarker can serve as a practical option for timely detection and contribute subsequently to the enhancement of survival rate in CRC patients, since methylation changes are not only frequent but also can occur in initial tumorogenesis stages. It has been indicated that EDNRB and KISS1 genes are hypermethylated through progression and development of CRC...

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common malignancies, and the third leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide. Timely detection of CRC in patients with earlier stages provides the highest rate of survival. Epigenetic alterations are important in the occurrence and progression of CRC, and represent the primary modifications of cancer cells. Therefore, detection of these alterations in CRC cases are thought to hold great promise as diagnostic biomarkers. It has been shown that the SEPT9 and NTRK3 genes are aberrantly methylated and their detection can be used as biomarkers for early diagnosis of CRC...

Tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated periodic syndrome (TRAPS) is a periodic fever syndrome inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion. It stems from mutations in the TNFRSF1A gene that expresses the receptor for tumor necrosis factor α. A patient with TRAPS may present with prolonged episodes of fever attacks, abdominal pain, severe myalgia, and painful erythema on the trunk or extremities. Here, we report the case of an 8-year-old boy with febrile attacks occurring every 1-2months and continuing for 3-4days...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Specific chromosomal translocations are found in human leukemias and lymphomas. These translocations are closely related to particular histological and immunological phenotypes. In Burkitt's lymphoma, translocation t(8;14)(q24;q32), which involves the c-myc gene (8q24) and the immunoglobulin heavy-chain (IgH) locus (14q32), accounts for 90-95% of all chromosomal translocations. This translocation can be found in 2-5% of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Long-distance polymerase chain reaction (LD-PCR) assays, which can identify oncogene/Ig gene rearrangement, can detect these fusion genes...

BACKGROUND: Behcet's Disease (BD) is a chronic systemic inflammatory disease of unknown etiology, principally characterized by relapsing periods of a broad range of clinical symptoms. Cytokines play fundamental roles in the pathogenesis of BD. Polymorphisms within cytokine genes have been found to play a pathogenic role in the development of autoimmune/inflammatory disorders. Interleukin 27 (IL-27), a new pro-/anti-inflammatory cytokine, is a great candidate for chronic inflammatory disease studies...

In the present study, our aim was to assess the incidence of BCL-1 gene rearrangements in formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue in patients with non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL). The BIOMED-2 protocol was applied to assess the BCL-1 gene rearrangements in NHL patients. PCR amplification was carried out on FFPE in 100 patients with B-cell lymphoma including 89 cases with diffused large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) (15 cases under 18 years old) and 11 cases with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). Out of the 100 patients, 19 cases (19%) were identified to have concurrent translocation involving BCL-1...

UNLABELLED: Background: Behçet's Disease (BD) is a rare autoimmune disease that involves the dysfunction of regulatory T cells. FOXP3 is a key transcription factor in the development and function of T(reg) cells. Recent studies have shown SNPs in the FOXP3 contribute to the susceptibility to some autoimmune disorders. METHODS: To clarify the association between the FOXP3 gene and the risk of BD, 50 patients diagnosed with BD and 50 healthy controls from north-western Iran were genotyped by PCR-RFLP (Mun I and Pst I) for two SNPs including rs3761547 (-3499T/C) and rs3761548 (-3279 C/A) in the promoter region of the FOXP3 gene...

BACKGROUND: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a debilitating disease of the central nervous system for which no definitive therapy has yet been developed. The etiology remains uncertain, but there is evidence of genetic susceptibility to the disease, including contributions from mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variations to the pathogenesis of MS. G15257A and G15812A are variations of the mtDNA tRNA(Thr) gene in MS sufferers of different populations. The present study tested the hypothesis of an association of the G15257A and G15812A variations of the mtDNA tRNA(Thr) gene to the susceptibility to MS in an Iranian population...

BACKGROUND: Multiple sclerosis (MS) affects the brain and spinal cord and long has been the topic of global research; yet there is no commonly accepted cause and no cure for the disease. Mounting evidence supports the role of genetics in susceptibility to MS. From this perspective, a current effort focuses on the neurogenetics of the complex pathogenesis of MS in relation to factors such as mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variations. T4216C and A4917G are common mitochondrial gene variations associated with MS...

BACKGROUND: Although the analysis of molecular clonality rearrangements of the immunoglobulin light chains (IGK and IGL) is an alternative approach for diagnosis of B cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs) using BIOMED-2 protocols, NHLs have not been extensively confirmed for Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) cases. We evaluated BIOMED-2 protocols in HL cases, which have been suggested previously as gold standard method for molecular clonality analysis on formalin fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue in NHL patients...
