  1. 1. Structural Studies on PP2A and Methods in Protein Production

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för biokemi och biofysik

    Author : Auður Magnúsdóttir; Pär Nordlund; Herman Van Tilbeurgh; ; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PP2A; PTPA; B56γ; Protein Production; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry Structural biology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi Strukturbiologi; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : PP2A is a major phosphatase in the cell that participates in multiple cell signaling pathways. It is a heterotrimer of a core dimer and variable regulatory subunits. Details of its structure, function and regulation are slowly emerging. Here, the structure of two regulators of PP2A are de-scribed; PTPA and B56γ. READ MORE

  2. 2. Adipocyte phosphatases and the antilipolytic action of insulin

    University dissertation from Svante Resjö, BMC, C11, SE-221 84 LUND, SWEDEN

    Author : Svante Resjö; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; protein phosphorylation; protein purification; adipose tissue; PP2A; protein phosphatase; PDE3B; phosphodiesterase 3B; Insulin signalling; antilipolysis; Klinisk biologi; Clinical biology; PKB; protein kinase B;

    Abstract : Adipose tissue is the main site of energy storage of the body and an important endocrine organ. Knowledge of the regulation of fat metabolism and the endocrine factors secreted by the adipocyte is crucial for the understanding of diseases such as obesity and diabetes. Insulin is the main antilipolytic hormone. READ MORE

  3. 3. Viral Strategies to Regulate Transcription and Pre-mRNA Splicing

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Shaoan Fan; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Adenovirus E1B-55kDa; E4-ORF4; E4-ORF6 proteins; L1 mRNA; Polyoma virus small T antigen; regulation; transcription; splicing; PP2A; Biokemi; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; Medical Virology; medicinsk virologi;

    Abstract : A typical DNA virus encodes for a few key regulatory proteins that modify the host cell biosynthetic machinery to achieve a selective viral gene statement. One such example is illustrated by the adenovirus E4-ORF4 protein, which form an enzymatically active complex with the serine and threonine-specific protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A). READ MORE

  4. 4. Regulation of neutrophil apoptosis

    University dissertation from Maria Alvarado-Kristensson, experimentall pathology, Lund University, U-MAS, entrance 78, 205 02 Malmö

    Author : Maria Alvarado-Kristensson; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; General pathology; pathological anatomy; Patologi allmän ; patologisk anatomi; PP2A; p38 MAPK; caspases; signal transduction; inflammation; Apoptosis; human neutrophils;

    Abstract : The human neutrophil is the most abundant granulocyte and the major type of cell involved in an acute inflammatory response. Neutrophils are armed with various systems of enzymes, that can find and kill pathogens, but unfortunately, these "weapons" cannot distinguish between the host tissues and the "invaders. READ MORE

  5. 5. p63 and potential p63 targets in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck
