  1. 1. Mechanisms of dendritic cell maturation induced by intracellular bacteria infection

    Author : Miguel A. Tam; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Listeria; Salmonella; dendritic cells; maturation; MyD88; IFN-? ?;

    Abstract : Dendritic cells (DCs) are essential for the development of an immune response against pathogens such as Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella typhimurium. This is mostly because of their unique capacity to stimulate naïve T cells. READ MORE

  2. 2. Activity and Regulation of Telomerase in Malignant Cells

    Author : Anna Lindkvist; Ylva Paulsson-Karlsson; Göran Roos; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; apoptosis; ATC; c-Myc; drug sensitivity; ESCC; hTERT; hypoxia; IFN; MM; neuroblastoma; p53; telomerase; TGF-β; Medicin; Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : An important step in tumorgenesis is the acquisition of cellular immortality. Tumor cells accomplish this by activating the enzyme telomerase, and thereby avoiding replicative senescence. The aim of this thesis was to study the activity and regulation of telomerase in a panel of malignant cell types. READ MORE

  3. 3. Apoptosis Regulation in Multiple Myeloma

    Author : Lina Dimberg; Helena Jernberg Wiklund; Kenneth Nilsson; Marie Arsenian Henriksson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Biomedicine; multiple myeloma; apoptosis; survival; IFN; Stat1; Stat3; IGF-I; RTK inhibitor; PPP; IAP; Fas CD95; dexamethasone; Biomedicin;

    Abstract : Multiple myeloma (MM) is a virtually incurable B cell malignancy of the bone marrow. One important part of tumor progression and an obstacle for successful therapy is resistance to apoptosis. To combat this resistance, the mechanisms of apoptosis and survival in MM must be better defined. READ MORE

  4. 4. Viperin vs. tick-borne encephalitis virus : mechanism of a potent antiviral protein

    Author : Kirstin Vonderstein; Anna Överby Wernstedt; Magnus Evander; Sonja Best; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tick-borne encephalitis virus; TBEV; type-I interferon; IFN; Interferon-stimulated gene; ISG; viperin; GBF1; CIAO1; antiviral protein; genome replication; particle release; capsid;

    Abstract : Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) is a very important virus medically, causing mild or severe encephalitis often with long-lasting sequelae. Treatment of tick-borne encephalitis is limited to supportive care, and antiviral drugs are much needed.The type-I interferon (IFN) system is the first line of host defense against many viruses.

  5. 5. On the function of the interferon-inducible p53 target gene TRIM22

    Author : Jessica Petersson; Avdelningen för hematologi och transfusionsmedicin; []

    Abstract : The interferon-inducible p53-target gene TRIM22 (Staf50) is a member of the TRIM (TRIpartite Motif) family. The TRIM family is a family of RING (Really Interesting New Gene) proteins, defined through a tripartite motif, containing a RING-domain, one or two B-boxes and a Coiled-coil-domain. READ MORE
