Molecular insights of mitochondrial 16S rDNA genes of the native honey bees subspecies Apis mellifera carnica and Apis mellifera jementica (Hymenoptera: Apidae) in Saudi Arabia

The honey bee Apis mellifera is of major importance for the world’s agriculture and is also suitable for environmental monitoring. It includes several recognized subspecies distinguished by using morphological and morphometric variants. Here, 200 adult worker Apis mellifera honey bees were collected from Hail region, Saudi Arabia. Mitochondrial 16S rDNA was conducted to detect molecular p.. Read More»

Integrative omics of ovarian cancer

Omics such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics are gathering the study of entire characterization and molecular biology processes of organisms. The advancement in studying omics has become useful and widely applied to many human diseases. For ovarian cancer, pathogenic mechanisms at molecular levels resulting in the development of cancer are the continual debate. Due to t.. Read More»

Relationship between melanoma-associated antigen 1 (MAGE-A1) gene polymorphisms and colorectal cancer development

In the Saudi population, colorectal cancer (CRC) is the first and third most common malignancy among males and females, respectively. The CRC risk is associated with the expression of certain genes, which can be used for prognoses and for finding screening-related biomarkers. One such gene is melanoma-associated antigen 1 (MAGE-A1); however, little is known about this gene or its expression as .. Read More»

Interleukin-7 receptor gene rs12516866 polymorphism decreases the susceptibility of estrogen receptor negative Saudi women to breast cancer

Background: Genetic polymorphisms in IL-7R are associated with the risk of development of multiple diseases, including breast malignancy. At present, no evidence exists for an influence of gene polymorphism of IL-7R on BC susceptibility in Saudi Arabian populations. The aim of the study was therefore to evaluate whether common polymorphisms in the IL-7R gene (rs1053496 and rs12516866) are corre.. Read More»
