  1. 1. Generation and evolution of human antibody repertoires

    Author : Helena Persson; Institutionen för immunteknologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; specificity; Immunology; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; phage display; IgE; hapten; grass pollen allergen; diversity; antibody repertoire; antibody library; antibody evolution; affinity maturation; allergy;

    Abstract : This thesis, which is based on five original papers, covers different aspects of antibody specificity and diversity, with the overall goal to understand the makeup of antibody repertoires and their functionality as they occur in vivo or as they are developed in the laboratory. Besides their importance in the adaptive immune response, antibodies have emerged as an invaluable tool in applications ranging from basic research to disease diagnostics and therapy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Small non-coding RNAs in cancer

    Author : Helena Persson; Bröstcancer-genetik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; microRNA; non-coding RNA; breast cancer; CYP3A4; bladder cancer;

    Abstract : The complex genetics of cancer, which allows tumours to grow and spread while bypassing the control circuitry of the cell, involves dysregulation of the genome, transcriptome and proteome. The importance of protein-coding genes such as growth factors and hormone receptors is well established. READ MORE
