J Pediatr Endocrinol Metab 23:407-14. 2010..We are reporting a mutation (W104R) at exon 5 of GHR gene that is not previously reported, and it is a novel mutation...
- Multiple sclerosis: association with the interleukin-1 gene family polymorphisms in the Turkish populationNihal Isik
1Department of Neurology, Medeniyet University Göztepe Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey
Int J Neurosci 123:711-8. 2013..It involves inflammation and demyelination. Since cytokines play an important role in the development of MS, genes encoding cytokines such as the Interleukin (IL)-1 family are candidate genes for MS susceptibility...

The Department of Cardiology, Dr Siyami Ersek Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey
Eur Cytokine Netw 19:42-8. 2008..The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between IL-1 gene family polymorphisms (IL-1RN, IL-1B in positions -511 and +3953) and ACS in the Turkish population...
- Novel splice site mutation in the growth hormone receptor gene in Turkish patients with Laron-type dwarfismAhmet Arman
Faculty of Engineering, Marmara University, Istanbul
J Pediatr Endocrinol Metab 21:47-58. 2008..These results imply that the splicing occurs arthe GT site in intron 2, leaving the extra inserted G residue at the end of exon 2, thus changing the open reading frame of GHR resulting in a premature termination codon in exon 3...
