  1. 1. Ubiquitination and Receptor Endocytosis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kaisa Haglund; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; Ubiquitination; receptor tyrosine kinase; endocytosis; Cbl; CIN85; EGFR; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Protein ubiquitination is an evolutionary conserved mechanism that controls a wide variety of cellular functions. Polyubiquitinated proteins are generally degraded in the proteasome, whereas monoubiquitination controls various other cellular processes, including endocytosis and endosomal sorting. READ MORE

  2. 2. Endocytosis by human dendritic cells

    University dissertation from Malmö University, Faculty of Health and Society

    Author : Linda Andersson; Malmö University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Medicine; human dendritic cells; endocytosis;

    Abstract : Dendritic cells (DCs) are specialized antigen-presenting cells with the ability to internalize antigen, and present antigen-derived peptides to T cells. The functions of DCs depend on the subset, as well as their location and activation state. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sorting nexin 9 in clathrin-mediated endocytosis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Medicinsk biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Richard Lundmark; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; sorting nexin; dynamin; clathrin; endocytosis; human; adaptor protein complexes; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi; medicinsk biokemi; Medical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Clathrin-mediated endocytosis is a process by which cells can internalise diverse molecules such as nutrients, antigens and signalling-surface receptors. The creation of clathrin-coated vesicles demands interplay between the plasma membrane lipids, cargo molecules and the proteins that build up the coat. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cbl in Regulation of Growth Factor Receptor Endocytosis and Actin Dynamics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Iwona Szymkiewicz; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; RTK; Cbl; endocytosis; ubiquitination; actin; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology;

    Abstract : Proteins belonging to the Cbl family are multidomain scaffolds that participate in numerous processes, assembling signaling complexes and mediating attachment of ubiquitin to receptor and non-receptor tyrosine kinases.We characterized a novel role for Cbl and Cbl-b in ligand-dependent internalization of growth factor receptors.

  5. 5. Dissecting sterol function during clathrin-dependent endocytosis and cytokinesis in Arabidopsis thaliana

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Márcia Frescatada-Rosa; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arabidopsis; membrane; sterols; cytokinesis; KNOLLE; endocytosis; clathrin; DRP1A; Developmental Biology; miljömedicinsk utvecklingsbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; Molecular Cellbiology; molekylär cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Sterols are lipid components of eukaryotic membranes. Alterations of membrane sterol composition perturb the execution of cell division, which in diverse eukaryotes can have severe consequences for development of the organism. Partitioning of the cytoplasm during cell division occurs at the final stage of cell division named cytokinesis. READ MORE
