  1. 1. Tumor Selective Antiproliferative Naphthoxylosides

    University dissertation from Glycobiology, Dept of Experimental Medical Science

    Author : Ulrika Aili; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; glycosaminoglycan; proteoglycan; heparan sulfate; xyloside; naphthoxyloside; histone H3 acetylation;

    Abstract : Proteoglycans (PG) are highly anionic macromolecules consisting of a core protein covalently substituted with long unbranched polysaccharide chains called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). PGs are central components in multicellular organisms, and they may occur in the extracellular matrix (ECM), at the cell surface, or in the secretory pathway. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies on the antiproliferative action of interferon effects on proteins synthesized in the G1 and S phase of the cell cycle in 2 anchorage-dependent cell lines

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Dan Lundblad; Umeå universitet.; [1991]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Interferon; Glioma; Antiproliferative effect; DNA polymerase; Thymidine kinase; 2 -5 oligo A; Protein synthesis; Two-dimensional electrophorensis; Mouse fibroblasts; C-myc; KI-67 antigen;

    Abstract : Interferons (IFNs) are a class of structurally related proteins first discovered to be produced by virus-infected cells. By now, several other inducing agents have been described. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modulating Sirtuin Activity - Design, Synthesis and Evaluation of Sirtuin 2 Inhibitors

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Tina Seifert; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sirtuin; SIRT2; Inhibitors; Chroman-4-ones; Chromones; Benzothiadiazine-1; 1-dioxides; Saccharin; Scaffold; Structure-activity relationship; Antiproliferative properties; Binding site; Homology modeling; Photoaffinity labeling; Diazirine; Mass spectrometry;

    Abstract : Sirtuins (SIRTs) are NAD+-dependent lysine deacetylating enzymes targeting histones and a multitude of non-histone proteins. The SIRTs have been related to important cellular processes such as gene expression, cell proliferation, apoptosis and metabolism. They are proposed to be involved in the pathogenesis of e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Antiproliferative action of estrogen receptor beta and Hes-1 in breast cancer

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Biosciences and Nutrition

    Author : Johan Hartman; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common malignancy among Swedish women. Although the mechanism behind the tumorigenesis remains unclear, estrogen receptor a (ERa) plays an important role in the progression of breast cancer and is regarded as a target for endocrine therapy. READ MORE

  5. 5. The antiproliferative role of the liver X receptors in breast and colorectal cancer

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Biosciences and Nutrition

    Author : Lise-Lotte Vedin; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The liver X receptors (LXR α and LXR β ) are members of the nuclear receptor superfamily of ligand activated transcription factors and have functions as regulators of lipid and glucose metabolism, as well as inflammatory response. In recent years, several reports have demonstrated an important role of LXRs in the control of cell proliferation. READ MORE
