  1. 1. The Control of the Epigenome

    Author : Magda Lezcano; Rolf Ohlsson; Matthias Merkenschlager; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Biology; Epigenetics; chromosome interactions; replication timing; histone modifications; epigenetic surveillance; Biologi; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : The genetic information required for the existence of a living cell of any kind is encoded in the sequence information scripted in the double helix DNA. A modern trend in biology struggles to come to grip with the amazing fact that there are so many different cell types in our body and that they are directed from the same genomic blueprint.

  2. 2. The Epigenome of Multiple Myeloma : From genome-wide analysis to pharmacological manipulation

    Author : Alba Atienza Párraga; Helena Jernberg-Wiklund; Fredrik Öberg; Antonia Kalushkova; Miguel Angel Peinado; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Nowadays epigenetic dysregulation is known to play a crucial role in virtually all cancers. In multiple myeloma (MM), an extensively heterogeneous malignancy, the key common feature among patients is the gene silencing imposed by the PRC2 complex through the addition of H3K27me3. READ MORE

  3. 3. Array-based Genomic and Epigenomic Studies in Healthy Individuals and Endocrine Tumours

    Author : Johanna Sandgren; Gunnar Westin; Teresita Diaz de Ståhl; Göran Åkerström; Ola Hessman; Winand Dinjens; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : genome; copy number variants; cancer; Pheochromocytoma; epigenome; array-CGH; ChIP-chip; gene expression; tumour suppressor genes; oncogenes; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Kirurgi; Surgery;

    Abstract : The human genome is a dynamic structure, recently recognized to present with significant large-scale structural variation. DNA-copy number changes represent one common type of such variation and is found both between individuals and within the somatic cells of the same individual, especially in disease states like cancer.

  4. 4. Role of GPS2 in epigenome alterations linked to metaflammation

    Author : Zhiqiang Huang; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Current evidence suggests that transcriptional and epigenomic reprogramming events, triggered by transcription factors and chromatin-modifying co-regulators, are of central importance for disease development. G-protein pathway suppressor 2 (GPS2) is a key component of the HDAC3 co-repressor complex that has been earlier implicated in cholesterol homeostasis and anti-inflammatory crosstalk. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Neuroblastoma Genome and Epigenome - Patient Stratification and Identification of Candidate Genes

    Author : Helena Carén; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []

    Abstract : Neuroblastoma (NB) is a tumor of the sympathetic nervous system, and the most common extracranial tumor of childhood. The prognosis for high-stage NBs is still poor, with survival rates of about 35%. Side-effects of treatment in these young children can also be severe. READ MORE
