  1. 1. The SWI/SNF complex : Roles in transcription and pre-mRNA processing

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Johan Waldholm; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Splicing; Gene regulation; SWI SNF; polyadenylation; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : The regulation of gene expression is fundamental to the development of complex organisms and an important driving force in this process. When and where the genes are expressed decide the fate of a cell and its physiological context in the organism. READ MORE

  2. 2. Gene regulation by chromatin remodelling complexes SWI/SNF complex in mRNA processing and B-WICH complex in ribosomal gene expression

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Antoni Gañez Zapater; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chromatin remodelling; SWI SNF; Brg1; Brm; alternative splicing; cleavage and polyadenylation; B-WICH; WSTF; ribosomal genes; Cell Biology; cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this project is to investigate the roles of chromatin remodelling complexes in gene regulation. It is focused on two groups of chromatin complexes: the mammalian BRG1 and BRM SWI/SNF complexes and the ISWI-containing B-WICH complex.Study 1 investigates the role of SWI/SNF complexes in alternative splicing.

  3. 3. Chromatin Remodeling by BRG1 and SNF2H Biochemistry and Function

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Patrik Asp; Stockholms universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; chromatin; chromatin remodeling; SWI SNF; ISWI; BRG1; SNF2H; Prp8; RNA; transcription; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Chromatin is a highly dynamic, regulatory component in the process of transcription, repair, recombination and replication. The BRG1 and SNF2H proteins are ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling proteins that modulate chromatin structure to regulate DNA accessibility for DNA-binding proteins involved in these processes.

  4. 4. Molecular analysis of the FET family fusion oncoprotein FUS-DDIT3

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Christer Thomsen; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; FUS-DDIT3; FUS; EWS; TAF15; DDIT3; myxoid liposarcoma; plectin; SWI SNF;

    Abstract : Chromosomal translocations leading to formation of tumor type specific fusion oncogenes are frequently found in human cancers. The FET family genes (FUS, EWSR1 and TAF15) occur in translocations with genes encoding various transcription factors in sarcomas and leukemias. READ MORE

  5. 5. ATPase dependent and independent roles of Brahma in transcription and pre-mRNA processing

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute; Stockholm University

    Author : Simei Yu; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; chromatin remodeling; transcription; alternative splicing; 3 -end processing; Molecular Biology; molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : SWI/SNF is a chromatin-remodeling complex and Brahma (BRM) is the ATPase subunit of SWI/SNF. BRM regulates transcription by remodeling the nucleosomes at promoter regions. BRM is also associated with RNA and affects pre-mRNA processing together with other SWI/SNF subunits. READ MORE
