  1. 1. Viral Control of SR Protein Activity

    Author : Camilla Estmer Nilsson; Neus Visa; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; adenovirus; ASF SF2; dephosphorylation; E4-ORF4; L1; MLTU; PP2A; splicing; SR proteins; vaccinia virus; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Medical Virology; medicinsk virologi;

    Abstract : Viruses modulate biosynthetic machineries of the host cell for a rapid and efficient virus replication. One important way of modulating protein activity in eukaryotic cells is by reversible phosphorylation. In this thesis we have studied adenovirus and vaccinia virus, two DNA viruses with different replication stategies. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulation of Human Papillomavirus Type 16 Late L1 mRNA Splicing

    Author : Xiaoze Li; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HPV-16; cervical cancer; RNA processing; alternative splicing; splicing enhancer; splicing silencer; viral persistance; SR proteins; hnRNP proteins;

    Abstract : Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) cause almost half of the human cancers that are attributable to viruses. HPV type 16 is the most carcinogenic type among the HPVs and is detected in 50% of all cervical cancers. HPV-16 infects epithelial cells and HPV-16 gene expression is tightly linked to the differentiation stage of the infected cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. Regulation of RNA Processing in Human Papillomavirus Type 16

    Author : Margaret Rush; Stefan Schwartz; Jörgen Kjems; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; RNA processing; human papillomavirus; HPV-16; alternative splicing; polyadenylation; exonic splicing enhancer; 3 UTR; upstream polyadenylation element; SR proteins; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV-16) is the major cause of cervical cancer. HPV-16 gene expression is tightly linked to the differentiation programme of the infected epithelium. Expression of the late genes, L1 and L2, encoding the capsid proteins, is delayed until the more terminally differentiated cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Modular Domain Structure of ASF/SF2: Significance for its Function as a Regulator of RNA Splicing

    Author : Vita Dauksaite; Göran Akusjärvi; Javier Caceres; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; pre-mRNA splicing; alternative splicing; splicing regulation; SR proteins; ASF SF2; modular domains; adenovirus; MLTU L1; E1A; MS2; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : ASF/SF2 is an essential splicing factor, required for constitutive splicing, and functioning as a regulator of alternative splicing. ASF/SF2 is modular in structure and contains two amino-terminal RNA binding domains (RBD1 and RBD2), and a carboxy-terminal RS domain. READ MORE
