  1. 1. HOST EPIGENETIC REGULATOR BMI1 AND VIRAL FIBER PROTEIN FOR EQUILIBRIUM BETWEEN ADENOVIRUS AND HOST

    University dissertation from Neurosurgery, Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund

    Author : Manli Na; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adenovirus; BMI1; Dual-gene expression; Epigenetic; Equilibrium; Fiber; HSC; HDAC; TSA;

    Abstract : Human adenoviruses (Ads) are broadly used in cancer gene therapy, vaccine development and gene delivery. The modified Ad5 or Ad2 viruses have been successfully used as oncolytic agents in pre-clinical studies. However they could not be translated into clinic utility due to a number of limitations including inefficient Ad spread among tumor cells. READ MORE

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anders Sundqvist; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; CtBP; HDAC; adenovirus; E1A; gene expression; repression; Biokemi; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; Medical Virology; medicinsk virologi;

    Abstract : In this study, adenovirus E1A has been used to target and analyse the transcriptional function of the cellular C-terminal Binding Protein (CtBP).Transcription is a complex biochemical process that represents a major regulatory step in gene expression. READ MORE

  3. 3. Protein Acetylation – A Multifunctional Regulator of TGF-β Signaling

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Simonsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; TGF-β; Acetylation; Deacetylation; Acetyltransferase; HDAC; Smad; Transcription; Cellbiologi; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) is a member of a large family of cytokines that regulate many crucial events in cells, including proliferation, differentiation, migration and apoptosis. Deregulated TGF-β signaling is associated with various forms of cancers and developmental disorders. READ MORE

  4. 4. Adenovirus-mediated Gene Therapy of Prostate Cancer

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Angelika Danielsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adenovirus; adenoviral vector; oncolytic virus; gene therapy; prostate cancer; PEGylation; HDAC inhibitor; whole blood model; whole blood neutralization assay; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : Adenovirus-mediated gene therapy is a potential complement to standard cancer treatments. Advantages are that vectors can be used to target tumors and that replicating viruses lead to increased therapeutic dosage. READ MORE

  5. 5. Two novel combination therapies of glioblastoma multiforme from a Cx43 perspective : Studies of in vitro models

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Oncology-Pathology

    Author : Thomas Asklund; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glioma; gap junction; Cx43; bystander effect; HSV-tk; HDAC inhibitor; tyrosine kinase inhibitor;

    Abstract : The group of patients suffering from the malignant brain tumour glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) have a median survival of only about one year. Thus, new treatment strategies are urgently needed. Gap junctions are intercellular channels, permitting intercellular transfer of water soluble substances. READ MORE
