Oxidative Stress Events and Neuronal Dysfunction in Alzheimer’s Disease: Focus on APE1/Ref-1-Mediated Survival Strategies
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an important public health problem which affects millions of people worldwide. The major pathological hallmarks associated with AD are the accumulation of amyloid beta (Aβ) in senile plaques and ...
Toca-1 is suppressed by p53 to limit breast cancer cell invasion and tumor metastasis
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2014)
Introduction: Transducer of Cdc42-dependent actin assembly-1 (Toca-1) recruits actin regulatory proteins to invadopodia, and promotes breast tumor metastasis. Since metastatic breast tumors frequently harbor mutations in ...
Association of GABRA6 1519 T>C (rs3219151) and Synapsin II (rs37733634) gene polymorphisms with the development of idiopathic generalized epilepsy
The idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) is a neurological disorder which accounts for approximately 30% of all epilepsy cases. Patients identified with IGE syndromes have pharmacoresponsive epilepsies without abnormal ...
Association of the genetic variants of insulin receptor substrate 1 (IRS-1) with type 2 diabetes mellitus in a Saudi population
(Humana Press Inc., 2014)
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a chronic degenerative disease, phenotypically and genetically heterogeneous, characterized by high levels of glucose and metabolic complications. Insulin receptor substrate 1 (IRS-1) ...
P47 phox2/2 Mice Are Compromised in Expansion and Activation of CD8 + T Cells and Susceptible to Trypanosoma cruzi Infection
(Public Library of Science (PLOS), 2014)
Macrophage activation of NAD(P)H oxidase (NOX2) and reactive oxygen species (ROS) is suggested to kill Trypanosoma cruzi that causes Chagas disease. However, the role of NOX2 in generation of protective immunity and whether ...
CRP Gene (1059G>C) Polymorphism and Its Plasma Levels in Ischemic Stroke and Hemorrhagic Stroke in a South Indian Population
(Springer New York LLC, 2014)
In the present study, we evaluated the association of 1059G>C polymorphism in C-reactive protein (CRP) gene with the risk of ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes. We did not find a significant association of this polymorphism ...
Oxidative stress and inflammation in diabetic complications

Association of -1382A>G CCL11 gene variant with ischemic stroke, its subtypes and hemorrhagic stroke in a South Indian population
(Medknow Publications, 2014)
Conclusion: The results of the present study show that the GG genotype is a significant risk factor for ischemic as well as hemorrhagic stroke. Further, the frequency of the GG genotype was observed to be higher in hemorrhagic ...
1-Acetyl-3,5-diaryl-4,5-dihydro(1H)pyrazoles: Exhibiting anticancer activity through intracellular ROS scavenging and the mitochondria-dependent death pathway
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2014)
A series of 17 analogs of 1-acetyl-4,5-dihydro(1H)pyrazoles (JP-1 to JP-17) bearing two aromatic rings at positions 3 and 5, either of which ought to be heterocyclic, were synthesized and evaluated for their anti-proliferative ...
Association of Serum Trace Elements and Minerals with Genetic Generalized Epilepsy and Idiopathic Intractable Epilepsy
(Springer New York LLC, 2014)
Certain minerals and trace elements are essential for the development of healthy nervous system. Altered serum levels of these elements may lead to the development of various diseases including epilepsy. The present study ...
