  1. 1. Modeling DNA Damage

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för fysikalisk kemi, oorganisk kemi och strukturkemi

    Author : Patric Schyman; Aatto Laaksonen; Sason Shaik; ; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA; Ionizing radiation; DNA radicals; Strand break; Hydrogen abstraction; Density Functional Theory; Car-Parrinello Molecular Dynamics; QM MM; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Physical chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry; fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : In this thesis methods of computational chemistry have been used to examine DNA damaging processes initiated by ionizing radiation, free radicals, or Low-Energy Electrons (LEE).The computational chemistry method based on quantum mechanics that has been mainly used here is the Density Functional Theory (DFT).

  2. 2. Radiation response in human cells DNA damage formation, repair and signaling

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ann-Sofie Gustafsson; Bo Stenerlöw; Andrzej Wojcik; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA damage; DNA repair; DSB; NHEJ; DNA-PK; ionizing radiation; heat-labile sites; Biomedical Radiation Science; Biomedicinsk strålningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Ionizing radiation induces a range of different DNA lesions. In terms of mutation frequency and mammalian cell survival, the most critical of these lesions is the DNA double-strand break (DSB). DSB left unrepaired or mis-repaired may result in chromosomal aberrations that can lead to permanent genetic changes or cell death. READ MORE

  3. 3. Replication Dynamics in the DNA Damage Response

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Genetics, Microbiology and Toxicology, Stockholm University

    Author : Petra Groth; Thomas Helleday; Geroge Iliakis; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA damage; DNA replication; homologous recombination; DNA double strand-breaks; ionizing radiation; alkylating agents; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Genetics; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Genetik; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : Faithful DNA replication is essential and the induction of replication stress may have profound effects on genomic integrity. This is demonstrated by the formation of DNA double strand breaks (DSBs), considered to be the most toxic DNA lesions, at stalled replication forks. READ MORE

  4. 4. Oxidative damage and the DNA glycosylase MutYH

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Genetics, Microbiology and Toxicology, Stockholm University

    Author : Kristina Jansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Oxidative damage; 8-oxo-7; 8-dihydro-2′-deoxyguanosine; Base excision repair; DNA glycosylase; Mismatch repair; DNA damage checkpoint; 9-1-1 complex; Glutathione-S-transferases; Colon cancer.;

    Abstract : The DNA glycosylase MutYH is highly conserved throughout evolution, and homologs are found in most eukaryotes and prokaryotes examined. MutYH functions as a base excision repair DNA glycosylase that excises adenines misincorporated opposite 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2′-deoxyguanosine (8-oxodG), one of the most stable products of oxidative DNA damage.

  5. 5. Ribonucleotide reductase and DNA damage

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Pelle Håkansson; Lars Thelander; Claes Gustafsson; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ribonucleotide reductase; DNA damage; dNTP pools; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Medical cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : A prerequisite for a multicellular organism to survive is the ability to correctly replicate and repair DNA while minimizing the number of heritable mutations. To achieve this, cells need a balanced supply of deoxyribonucleoside triphosphates (dNTPs), the precursors for DNA synthesis. READ MORE
