Macrophage migration inhibitory factor promoter polymorphisms (-794 CATT5 and -173 G>C): relationship with mRNA expression and soluble MIF levels in young obese subjects
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2015-03-30)
We analyzed the relationship of -794 CATT5 and -173 G>C MIF polymorphisms with mRNA and soluble MIF in young obese. A total of 250 young subjects, 150 normal-weight and 100 obese subjects, were recruited in the study. ...
Correlation of leptin and soluble leptin receptor levels with anthropometric parameters in mother-newborn pairs
(International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, 2015-07-30)
The aim of this study was to investigate if anthropometric parameters are associated with both leptin and soluble leptin receptor (sLEPR) levels in newborns and their mothers. This cross-sectional study was performed in ...
A potential inflammatory role of IL-31 in psoriatic arthritis: A correlation with Th17 cytokine profile
(International Journal of Immunopathology and Pharmacology, 2020-12-21)
The goals of our study were to determine the possible association of interleukin (IL)-31 with Th17 cytokine profile in serum and to quantify retinoic acid-related orphan receptor C (RORC) mRNA expression in psoriatic ...
Interaction of dietary fat intake with APOA2, APOA5 and LEPR polymorphisms and its relationship with obesity and dyslipidemia in young subjects
(BioMed Central, 2015-09-13)
Background: Diet is an important environmental factor that interacts with genes to modulate the likelihood of developing disorders in lipid metabolism and the relationship between diet and genes in the presence of other ...
CD36 haplotypes are associated with lipid profile in normal-weight subjects
(Lipids in Health and Disease, 2013-04-13)
Dyslipidemia is a common metabolic disorder that may result from abnormalities in the synthesis, processing and catabolism of lipoprotein particles. Disorders of lipoprotein concentrations and elevated concentration of ...
