  1. 1. Regulation of adenovirus alternative pre-mRNA splicing : Functional characterization of exonic and intronic splicing enhancer elements

    Author : Bai-Gong Yue; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; adenovirus; pre-mRNA splicing; splicing enhancer; MLTU; L1; SR protein; ASF SF2; E. coli; phosphorylation; dephosphorylation; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Pre-mRNA splicing and alternative pre-mRNA splicing are key regulatory steps controlling geneexpression in higher eukaryotes. The work in this thesis was focused on a characterization of thesignificance of exonic and intronic splicing enhancer elements for pre-mRNA splicing. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulation of Human Papillomavirus Type 16 Late L1 mRNA Splicing

    Author : Xiaoze Li; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HPV-16; cervical cancer; RNA processing; alternative splicing; splicing enhancer; splicing silencer; viral persistance; SR proteins; hnRNP proteins;

    Abstract : Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) cause almost half of the human cancers that are attributable to viruses. HPV type 16 is the most carcinogenic type among the HPVs and is detected in 50% of all cervical cancers. HPV-16 infects epithelial cells and HPV-16 gene expression is tightly linked to the differentiation stage of the infected cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Adenovirus L4-33K Protein : A Key Regulator of Virus-specific Alternative Splicing

    Author : Heidi Törmänen Persson; Göran Akusjärvi; Stefan Schwartz; Marie Öhman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; L4-33K; adenovirus; splicing; phosphorylation; localization; replication centers; L4-22K; MLTU; DNA-PK; DNA-dependent protein kinase; PKA; cAMP-dependent protein kinase; transcription sites; SR protein; Medical Virology; Medicinsk virologi;

    Abstract : Adenoviruses have been extensively studied in the field of gene regulation, since their genes are subjected to a tightly controlled temporal expression during the virus lifetime. The early-to-late shift in adenoviral gene expression distinguishes two completely different programs in gene expression. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Modular Domain Structure of ASF/SF2: Significance for its Function as a Regulator of RNA Splicing

    Author : Vita Dauksaite; Göran Akusjärvi; Javier Caceres; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; pre-mRNA splicing; alternative splicing; splicing regulation; SR proteins; ASF SF2; modular domains; adenovirus; MLTU L1; E1A; MS2; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : ASF/SF2 is an essential splicing factor, required for constitutive splicing, and functioning as a regulator of alternative splicing. ASF/SF2 is modular in structure and contains two amino-terminal RNA binding domains (RBD1 and RBD2), and a carboxy-terminal RS domain. READ MORE

  5. 5. Alternative splicing of interleukin-7

    Author : Nalini Kumar Vudattu; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Alternative splicing of pre-mRNA is the primary source of creating proteome diversity in humans; it is therefore highly relevant to disease and therapy. Alternative splicing has been described for many cytokines and these splice variants appear to function as either agonists or as antagonists of the wildtype cytokine. READ MORE
