  1. 1. DNA-dependent protein kinase in human cells

    University dissertation from Annahita Sallmyr, Dept of Medical Microbiology, Malmö University Hospital, Entrance 78, 5th floor, SE-205 02 Malmö, SWEDEN

    Author : Annahita Sallmyr; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; enzymology; virology; mycology; mykologi; virologi; Proteiner; enzymologi; bacteriology; Microbiology; Sjögren s syndrome; HL60; PMN; Ku86v; Ku86; DNA-PK; DNA DSBs; NHEJ; Proteins; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi;

    Abstract : DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) is a holoenzyme consisting of a regulatory subunit, the heterodimeric Ku70/86, and a catalytic subunit known as DNA-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit (DNA-PKcs). DNA-PK takes part in a number of cellular functions including growth control, immunoglobulin gene rearrangement and DNA repair. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Heidi Törmänen Persson; Göran Akusjärvi; Stefan Schwartz; Marie Öhman; [2011]
    Keywords : 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

  3. 3. Primary Sjögren's Syndrome: Studies of DNA damage responses and autoantibodies

    University dissertation from Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Gunnel Henriksson; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; autoantibodies; 18 ; t 14; cell cycle; p53; DNA-PK; DNA-binding protein; hypermutation; Sjögren s syndrome; DNA damage; anti-CD4 antibodies; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Primary Sjögren’s syndrome (SS) is a chronic autoimmune disease of unknown etiology. The disease primarily involves lachrymal and salivary glands, leading to dryness of the eyes and mouth, but a wide spectrum of exocrine and non-exocrine disease manifestations may be seen. READ MORE

  4. 4. Role of Non-Homologous End-Joining in Repair of Radiation-Induced DNA Double-Strand Breaks

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karin Karlsson; Bo Stenerlöw; Jörgen Carlsson; Thomas Helleday; [2006]
    Keywords : Molecular biology; DNA damage; DNA repair; DSB; NHEJ; DNA-PK; ionising radiation; high-LET; heat-labile sites; PFGE; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Efficient and correct repair of DNA damage, especially DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs), is vital for the survival of individual cells and organisms. Defects in the DNA repair may lead to cell death or genomic instability and development of cancer. READ MORE

  5. 5. Radiation response in human cells DNA damage formation, repair and signaling

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ann-Sofie Gustafsson; Bo Stenerlöw; Andrzej Wojcik; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA damage; DNA repair; DSB; NHEJ; DNA-PK; ionizing radiation; heat-labile sites; Biomedical Radiation Science; Biomedicinsk strålningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Ionizing radiation induces a range of different DNA lesions. In terms of mutation frequency and mammalian cell survival, the most critical of these lesions is the DNA double-strand break (DSB). DSB left unrepaired or mis-repaired may result in chromosomal aberrations that can lead to permanent genetic changes or cell death. READ MORE
