The Faculty of Engineering, Molecular Genetics and Cell Culture Laboratory, Marmara University, Goztepe Campus, 34722 Istanbul, Turkey
Rheumatol Int 32:2199-201. 2012..230). There was also no relationship between -572 (P = 0.150) and -597 (P = 0.912) gene polymorphism and RA. Our results suggested that IL-6 gene promoter polymorphisms have no association with RA in Turkish population...

Eur Cytokine Netw 21:116-21. 2010..Furthermore, the 2/2 (T/T) genotype of IL-1 beta (-511) may protect individuals from PD...
- Novel growth hormone receptor gene mutation in a patient with Laron syndromeAhmet Arman
The Faculty of Engineering, Marmara University, Turkey
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...
- Interleukin-1B (-511) gene polymorphism is associated with acute coronary syndrome in the Turkish populationOzer Soylu
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...

Departamento de Cardiologia, Faculdade de Engenharia, Universidade Marmara, Istambul, Turquia
Arq Bras Cardiol 91:293-8. 2008..Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease. Cytokine gene variations such as those associated with the IL1 family are involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis...
