  1. 1. 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.

  2. 2. Chromatin remodelers and their roles in chromatin organization

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

    Author : Annelie Strålfors; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The DNA in the eukaryotic nucleus is organized into a complex DNA-protein structure called chromatin. The basic repeating unit of chromatin is the nucleosome, which consists of 147 bp of DNA wrapped around a histone protein octamer. READ MORE

  3. 3. The CHD chromatin remodeling factors in schizosaccharomyces pombe

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska instiutet

    Author : Julian Walfridsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; Södertörns högskola.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Regulation of chromatin structure is essential in a wide variety of processes including transcriptional regulation, recombination, replication, chromosome segregation, development and differentiation. The enzymes that are central in regulating chromatin structure can be classified into two major groups. READ MORE

  4. 4. Notch signaling : From receptor cleavage to chromatin remodeling

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

    Author : Kia Strömberg; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : One of the principal signaling mechanisms that control development of multicellular organisms is the Notch signaling pathway. The transmembrane Notch receptor, presented at the cell surface, interacts with ligand on neighbouring cells. READ MORE

  5. 5. Interplay of chromatin remodeling, transcriptional regulation, and nuclear organization

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

    Author : Babett Steglich; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Transcription is regulated on different levels to ensure that genes are expressed at the correct time and in the amounts required. At the chromatin level, DNA is wound onto histone proteins, forming nucleosomes that influence accessibility of DNA elements. READ MORE
