  1. 1. Chromatin Remodeling by BRG1 and SNF2H : Biochemistry and Function

    Author : Patrik Asp; Ann-Kristin Östlund Farrants; Anthony Imbalzano; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; chromatin; chromatin remodeling; SWI SNF; ISWI; BRG1; SNF2H; Prp8; RNA; transcription; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Chromatin is a highly dynamic, regulatory component in the process of transcription, repair, recombination and replication. The BRG1 and SNF2H proteins are ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling proteins that modulate chromatin structure to regulate DNA accessibility for DNA-binding proteins involved in these processes.

  2. 2. Mining DNA elements involved in targeting of chromatin modifiers

    Author : Philge Philip; Per Stenberg; Jan Larsson; Stein Aerts; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nucleosome; histone; chromatin; chromatin modifiers; targeting; DNA motifs; protein factors; MSL; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Background: In all higher organisms, the nuclear DNA is condensed into nucleosomes that consist of DNA wrapped around a core of highly conserved histone proteins. DNA bound to histones and other structural proteins form the chromatin. READ MORE

  3. 3. The interplay of transcription and chromatin regulation during embryonic development

    Author : George Hunt; Mattias Mannervik; Eileen Furlong; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; transcription; chromatin; chromatin-modifiers; p300 CBP; Polycomb repression; promoter proximal Pol II pausing; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : A fascinating aspect of multicellular development is the production of diverse cell types from an identical DNA genome, which depends on the ability to express different complements of genes across space and time. This thesis tries to address how the genome, within the chromatin structure that envelops it, is regulated to direct this complex process. READ MORE

  4. 4. Chromatin, histones, and epigenetic tags

    Author : Elisavet Koutzamani; Ingemar Rundquist; Herbert Lindner; Sergey Belikov; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chromatin; histones; histone variants; epigenetics; histone H4 methylation; linker histone phosphorylation; Medical cell biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The fundamental building blocks of chromatin are the nucleosomes. Each such unit is composed of about 200 bp of DNA, the well-conserved core histones (H2A, H2B, H3 and H4) and a linker histone (H1). READ MORE

  5. 5. Chromatin and transcriptome-based integrative approaches to profile functional long noncoding RNAs - A computational approach

    Author : Santhilal Subhash; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Computational biology; Long noncoding RNAs; Chromatin; S-phase; Cell cycle; sperm; Epigenetics; Histone; cancer; oncogene; Tumor suppressor; DNA methylation; Histone modifications; Chromatin remodelers; lncRNAs; lincRNAs;

    Abstract : One of the major hallmarks of cancer is aberrant or uncontrollable cell division, which occurs due to a defective cell cycle process. During the synthesis phase (S-phase) of the cell cycle, before cell division or mitosis phase, the DNA in the cell makes a new copy to pass on genetic information to the daughter cells. READ MORE
