Genetic factors contribute significantly to type 1 diabetes (T1D) etiology. A single nucleotide polymorphism in the CD226 gene (rs763361 C>T) has been associated with T1D susceptibility in European patients, but data from other populations is limited. Our aim was to study the contribution of this polymorphism to T1D susceptibility among Egyptian children.

This study was conducted to investigate the effect of CD226 on the differentiation, activation, and polyploidization of megakaryocytes (MKs) and explore the potential mechanism. Dami (megakaryocyte li...
BACKGROUND Growing evidence indicates that a non-coding RNA named miR-34b/c plays crucial roles in carcinogenesis, and its common polymorphism, pri-miR-34b/c rs4938723, also participates in this proce...
Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene C677T polymorphism was reported as risk factor for multiple diseases due to its role in conversion of homocysteine to methionine. The aim of the presen...
Angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1R) gene 1166A>C polymorphism is strongly associated with the incidence of cardiovascular diseases and predicts the development of metabolic syndrome (MetS). There is...
The rs2147578 C > G polymorphism in the long non-coding RNA gene Lnc-LAMC2-1:1 is associated with increased susceptibility to a few types of cancers. However, its role in neuroblastoma has not bee...
Few patients who have major risk factors develop Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). The heritable determinants might be the reason. The multicenter study is to investigate the ass...

To study on the correlations of gene polymorphism and Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction.To explore whether the gene polymorphism could be used as a predictor of POCD and to provide refer...
RATIONALE: Identifying genes that increase a person's susceptibility or resistance to hepatitis B virus infection may help the study of hepatitis. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying...
With the development of pharmacogenomics and pharmacogenetics, personalized medicine based on genetic are increasingly required clinically. Incretin-based therapy is currently the most pop...
A zinc efflux transporter highly expressed by ISLET CELLS of the pancreas. It functions in the accumulation of zinc in intracellular vesicles and may be involved in INSULIN maturation and storage processes. Variations in the SLC30A8 gene are associated with susceptibility to DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2.
The regular and simultaneous occurrence in a single interbreeding population of two or more discontinuous genotypes. The concept includes differences in genotypes ranging in size from a single nucleotide site (POLYMORPHISM, SINGLE NUCLEOTIDE) to large nucleotide sequences visible at a chromosomal level.
A Fanconi anemia complementation group protein that contains an N-terminal DNA-binding region and seven, C-terminal, WD REPEATS. It is an essential factor in HOMOLOGOUS RECOMBINATION DNA REPAIR through its interactions with BRCA2 PROTEIN; RAD51 RECOMBINASE; and BRCA1 PROTEIN. It functions as a molecular scaffold to localize and stabilize these proteins at homologous recombination sites. Mutations in the PALB2 gene are associated with FANCONI ANEMIA complementation group N; type 3 PANCREATIC NEOPLASMS; and susceptibility to BREAST CANCER.
The number of copies of a given gene present in the cell of an organism. An increase in gene dosage (by GENE DUPLICATION for example) can result in higher levels of gene product formation. GENE DOSAGE COMPENSATION mechanisms result in adjustments to the level GENE EXPRESSION when there are changes or differences in gene dosage.
A CALCIUM and CALMODULIN-dependent cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase subfamily. The three members of this family are referred to as type 1A, type 1B, and type 1C and are each product of a distinct gene. In addition, multiple enzyme variants of each subtype can be produced due to multiple alternative mRNA splicing. Although the type 1 enzymes are classified as 3',5'-cyclic-AMP phosphodiesterases (EC 22.214.171.124), some members of this class have additional specificity for CYCLIC GMP.
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
