  1. 1. Studies on the regulation of the Napin napA promoter by ABI3, bZIP and bHLH transcription factors

    Author : Nathalie Martin; Lars Rask; Ines Ezcurra; Olof Olsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Molecular biology; transcription gene regulation; plant seed maturation; seed storage protein; ABA; ABI3; bZIP; bHLH; Brassica napus; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : The B3-domain transcription factor ABI3 is a major regulator of gene expression of seed maturation during Arabidopsis embryogenesis. The napA gene encodes for a Brassica napus 2S storage protein specifically expressed in the embryo during the early and mid-maturation phase (MAT program). READ MORE

  2. 2. The p97 ATPase and the Drosophila Proteasome : Protein Unfolding and Regulation

    Author : Kristian Björk Grimberg; Patrick Young; Neus Visa; Lars Thelander; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; proteasome; ubiquitin; p97; unfolding; regulation; RNAi screen; high-throughput screen; cnc; basic leucine zipper; transcription factors; proteasome inhibition; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : For all living systems, there is a requirement to recycle and regulate proteins. In eukaryotic organisms this is accomplished by the proteasome. The p97 ATPase is another highly conserved and essential complex present throughout the eukaryotic cell. READ MORE

  3. 3. Unravelling Mechanistic Insights of Eukaryotic Transcriptional Control

    Author : Johanna Hörberg; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Transcriptional control; Gene expression regulation; DNA supercoiling; DNA methylation; DNA-protein recognition; Basic-Leucine-Zipper transcription factors; Basic-Helix-Loop-Helix transcription factors; Sequence specific DNA plasticity; Transcription factor cooperativity; Cancer; Molecular modelling; Molecular dynamics;

    Abstract : DNA transcription involves the association of multiple proteins with DNA to convert the genetic information into messenger-RNA transcripts, which later will be translated into proteins. Con-trolled regulation of transcription is imperative for preserving the healthy and homeostatic state of cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Path to Destruction : Understanding the mechanism and regulation of proteasomal degradation

    Author : Anne Beskow; Patrick Young; Ylva Engström; Bernat Crosas; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Proteasome; ubiquitin; p97; Cnc-C; transcription factors; Nrf1; Nrf2; Molecular Biology; molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : A majority of intracellular proteins are degraded by the ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS). In this thesis, both the mechanism of the degradation and the regulation of UPS have been investigated. The importance of the p97 ATPase for proteasomal degradation of cytosolic substrates was examined. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular mechanisms regulating early cone development in Norway spruce Picea abies (Karst)

    Author : Shirin Akhter; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : Flower development progress through distinct phases that are controlled by complex genetic networks, which in turn are regulated by both endogenous and exogenous factors. A large number of functional studies have been conducted over the past decades to understand the genetic networks that regulate flower development in angiosperm model species. READ MORE
