  1. 1. Genome-Wide Studies of Transcriptional Regulation in Mammalian Cells

    Author : Ola Wallerman; Claes Wadelius; Jussi Taipale; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ChIP; ChIP-chip; ChIP-seq; transcription factors; motif discovery; nucleosome positioning; HepG2; genome-wide; RNA-seq; Medical genetics; Medicinsk genetik; Medical Genetics; Medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : The key to the complexity of higher organisms lies not in the number of protein coding genes they carry, but rather in the intrinsic complexity of the gene regulatory networks. The major effectors of transcriptional regulation are proteins called transcription factors, and in this thesis four papers describing genome-wide studies of seven such factors are presented, together with studies on components of the chromatin and transcriptome.

  2. 2. From Single Gene to Whole Genome Studies of Human Transcription Regulation

    Author : Alvaro Rada-Iglesias; Claes Wadelius; Henk Stunnenberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Genetics; transcription; ChIP-chip; genome-wide; transcription factors; in vivo; Genetik;

    Abstract : Transcriptional regulation largely determines which proteins and the protein levels that are found in a cell, and this is crucial in development, differentiation and responses to environmental stimuli. The major effectors of transcriptional regulation are a group of proteins known as transcription factors, which importance is supported by their frequent involvement in mendelian and complex diseases.

  3. 3. Genetic and Genomic Analysis of Transcriptional Regulation in Human Cells

    Author : Mehdi Motallebipour; Claes Wadelius; Gunnar Westin; Dirk Schübeler; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Transcription; ChIP-chip; ChIP-seq; genome-wide; transcription factors; microsatellite; epigenetic; Medical genetics; Medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : There are around 20.000 genes in the human genome all of which could potentially be expressed. However, it is obvious that not all of them can be active at the same time. Thus, there is a need for coordination achieved through the regulation of transcription. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Bioinformatics Study of Human Transcriptional Regulation

    Author : Adam Ameur; Jan Komorowski; Claes Wadelius; Philipp Bucher; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bioinformatics; microarray; ChIP-chip; ChIP-seq; transcription factor; histone modification; motif search; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Regulation of transcription is a central mechanism in all living cells that now can be investigated with high-throughput technologies. Data produced from such experiments give new insights to how transcription factors (TFs) coordinate the gene transcription and thereby regulate the amounts of proteins produced. READ MORE

  5. 5. Decoding the Structural Layer of Transcriptional Regulation : Computational Analyses of Chromatin and Chromosomal Aberrations

    Author : Robin Andersson; Jan Komorowski; Jan Dumanski; Claes Wadelius; Anders Krogh; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Chromatin; Nucleosome positioning; Histone modifications; Chromosomal aberrations; Transcriptional regulation; Array-CGH; Next generation sequencing; ChIP-chip; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Gene activity is regulated at two separate layers. Through structural and chemical properties of DNA – the primary layer of encoding – local signatures may enable, or disable, the binding of proteins or complexes of them with regulatory potential to the DNA. READ MORE
