  1. 1. Search for molecular and metabolic mechanisms contributing to impaired β-cell function

    Author : Siri Malmgren; Diabetes - epigenetik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HIF-1α; oxygen consumption; β-cell; Insulin secretion; Type 2 Diabetes; mitochondrial metabolism; metabolic profiling; Lipotoxicity; Histone acetylation; Histone methylation;

    Abstract : Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) prevalence is growing to pandemic proportions worldwide. The link between genotype, environment and β-cell function is still being investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Interaction of the Adenovirus E1B-55K Protein with a Histone Deacetylase Complex: Its Importance in Regulation of P53 Protein Functions

    Author : Tanel Punga; Göran Akusjärvi; Klas G. Wiman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; adenovirus; E1B-55K; p53; histone acetylation; Sin3; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi;

    Abstract : The human tumour suppressor protein p53 is an effective inhibitor of cell growth, by inducing cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. However, p53-induced cell growth inhibition can be detrimental for virus multiplication. Therefore, viruses encode for proteins, which can interfere with the functions of the p53 protein. READ MORE

  3. 3. Epigenetic regulation of gene expression in the vascular endothelium

    Author : Mia Magnusson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : epigenetics; histone acetylation; DNA methylation; t-PA; PLAT; HUVECs; valproic acid; gene expression; enhancers;

    Abstract : Epigenetic mechanisms, such as DNA methylation and histone modifications, constitute one way for a cell or an organism to respond to changes in the surrounding environment. While histone modifications are recognized to be quite dynamic, DNA methylation has been considered a more stable, or long-term, modification. READ MORE

  4. 4. Transcriptional regulation of the latent membrane protein 1 gene by Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen 2

    Author : Lars Palmqvist; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epstein-Barr virus; B-cell; transformation; LMP1; EBNA2; transcription; phosphorylation; histone acetylation;

    Abstract : The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a ubiquitous human herpes virus, which infects B-cells. This leads to a life-long latent infection, which in most cases is non-pathogenic. However, EBV is etiologically associated with several human malignancies, including endemic Burkitt's lymphoma, nasopharyngeal carcinoma and post-transplant lymphoma. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of vascular endothelial t-PA expression in inflammation: Potential target for pharmacological modulation

    Author : Pia Larsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Vascular biology; Fibrinolysis; Inflammation; Histone acetylation;

    Abstract : The endogenous fibrinolytic system is important for preventing occluding thrombosis and subsequent tissue infarction. The main activator of the fibrinolytic system in the vascular compartment is tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA). READ MORE
