  1. 1. Connecting Systemic RNAi to the Endomembrane System in Caenorhabditis elegans

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Benjamin T. Holmgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Systemic RNAi; RNAi inheritance; Endomembrane system; Late endosome; SID-5; SEC-22; SYX-6; C12D8.1; RNA; Biology with specialization in Molecular Cell Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär cellbiologi;

    Abstract : RNA interference (RNAi) is a gene regulation mechanism conserved among eukaryotes. To silence gene expression, RNAi relies on a short single-stranded guide RNA to steer the RNA-induced Silencing Complex (RISC) to mRNAs with guide strand-complementary sequences. RNAi is a highly membrane-associated process. READ MORE

  2. 2. Targeting and function of CAH1 Characterization of a novel protein pathway to the plant cell chloroplast

    University dissertation from Umeå : Institutionen för fysiologisk botanik, Umeå universitet

    Author : Stefan Burén; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arabidopsis; chloroplast; endomembrane system; CAH1; protein targeting; N-glycosylation; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : The chloroplast is the organelle within a plant cell where photosynthesis takes place. This organelle originates from a cyanobacterium that was engulfed by a eukaryotic cell. READ MORE

  3. 3. Systemic RNAi Relies on the Endomembrane System in Caenorhabditis elegans

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Yani Zhao; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Systemic RNAi; RNAi inheritance; late endosomes MVBs; SID-5; SEC-22; SYX-6; C12D8.1; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : The membrane system of a eukaryotic cell is a large and complex system handling the transport, exchange and degradation of many kinds of material. Recent research shows that double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) mediated gene silencing (RNA interference) is a membrane related process. READ MORE

  4. 4. The functional organization of nuclear membrane proteins and development of new technology for studies of cell signaling

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Ricardo A. Figueroa; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The eukaryotic cell is defined by the nucleus, which is delimited by a double membrane structure termed the nuclear envelope (NE). The NE is implicated in a multitude of different processes, for example chromatin organization. READ MORE

  5. 5. Membrane-remodeling by SNX18 in endosomal transport and autophagy

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, Umeå University

    Author : Karin Håberg; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Sorting nexin; SNX9-family; SNX18; endosomal transport; autophagy; medicinsk biokemi; Medical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The intracellular space of eukaryotic cells is subdivided into functionally distinct membrane-enclosed organelles. Regulation of these intracellular membranes requires an intricate network of specialized lipids and proteins that maintain organellar integrity and mediate transport between organelles. READ MORE
