Abstract

Purpose: The aim of this study was to show the effects of nicotine on expression levels of SOX2 and SOX4 genes, which are known for their master gene features, in human amniotic cell cultures. The study also aimed to show the effects of resveratrol, an antioxidant, on expression levels of these genes in human amniotic cell cultures, which are treated by nicotine.
