MicroRNAs 29, 150, 155, 223 level and their relation to viral and immunological markers in HIV-1 infected naive patients, Article Future Virology ; Volume 13, Issue 9 , 2018 , Pages 637-645 ; 17460794 (ISSN) ; Bokharaei Salim, F ; Esghaei, M ; Keyvani, H ; Honardoost, M ; Mostafaei, S ; Ghasemi, A ; Tavakoli, A ; Javanmard, D ; Babaei, F ; Garshasbi, S ; Monavari, S.

Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between microRNAs and viral and immunological markers in HIV-1 infection. Materials & methods: The expression level of miRNAs was evaluated in 60 HIV-1 patients and 20 healthy controls using real-time PCR assays. Results: The results showed that among all miRNAs, miR-29 and miR-150 were significantly downregulated in HIV-1 patients compared with healthy controls, while miR-155 and miR-223 were significantly upregulated compared with healthy controls (p < 0.001 for all comparisons). Conclusion: The mentioned miRNAs seem to influence the clinical progression of HIV-1 infection in naive patients. Moreover, determining the profiles of...
Dna-Rna hybrid (R-loop): From a unified picture of the mammalian telomere to the genome-wide profile, Article Cells ; Volume 10, Issue 6 , 2021 ; 20734409 (ISSN) ; Sharifi Zarchi, A ; Kianmehr, L ; Sharif University of Technology
Local three-stranded DNA/RNA hybrid regions of genomes (R-loops) have been detected either by binding of a monoclonal antibody (DRIP assay) or by enzymatic recognition by RNaseH. Such a structure has been postulated for mouse and human telomeres, clearly suggested by the identification of the complementary RNA Telomeric repeat-containing RNA “TERRA”. However, the tremendous disparity in the information obtained with antibody-based technology drove us to investigate a new strategy. Based on the observation that DNA/RNA hybrids in a triplex complex genome co-purify with the double-stranded chromosomal DNA fraction, we developed a direct preparative approach from total protein-free cellular...
