    Abstract : Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) is a Receptor Tyrosine Kinase (RTK) and an oncogene associated with several human diseases, but its normal function in humans and other vertebrates is unclear. Drosophila melanogaster has an ALK homolog, demonstrating that the RTK has been conserved throughout evolution. READ MORE

  2. 2. Methods for Scalable and Safe Robot Learning

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Olov Andersson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Symbicloud; ELLIIT; WASP;

    Abstract : Robots are increasingly expected to go beyond controlled environments in laboratories and factories, to enter real-world public spaces and homes. However, robot behavior is still usually engineered for narrowly defined scenarios. READ MORE

  3. 3. Identification and characterization of WASP and FKBP-like protein

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Author : Ing-Marie Viklund; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic inflammation of the colon which together with the related Crohn s disease (CD) represent the major forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). IBD is believed to arise in a dysfunctional intestinal barrier which allows the normal gut flora to trigger an unwanted chronic immune response in genetically susceptible individuals. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structural Study of the WH2 Family and Filamin: Implications for Actin Cytoskeleton Regulation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Adeleke H. Aguda; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Biochemistry; Actin; Thymosin; Ciboulot; N-WASP; Filamin; Calponin homology domain; WH2; Protein Crystallography; Biokemi;

    Abstract : Cellular processes like motility, chemotaxis, phagocytosis and morphogenesis are dependent on the dynamic regulation of the actin cytoskeleton. This cytoskeleton system is tightly controlled by a number of diverse actin-binding proteins (ABPs) by various mechanisms described as nucleation, polymerization, capping, severing, depolymerization and sequestration.

  5. 5. Drosophila skeletal muscles regulate the cellular immune response against wasp infection

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Hairu Yang; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Drosophila melanogaster is widely used as a model organism to study the innate immune system because it lacks an adaptive immune response that could mask its innate immune response. The innate immune response of Drosophila primarily consists of humoral and cellular immune responses. READ MORE
