    Abstract : Today, mankind faces a new challenge in energetic terms: a new Industrial Revolution is imperative, already called by some as an Energetic Revolution. This corresponds to a conversion to clean, environmentally friendly and renewable energy sources. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies of Functional Interactions within Yeast Mediator and a Proposed Novel Mechanism for Regulation of Gene Expression

    Author : Magnus Hallberg; Stefan Björklund; Karl Ekwall; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Mediator; Transcriptional regulation; Srb10; Cdk8; Med2; Srb7; Med21; RNA pol II; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; medicinsk biokemi; Medical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The yeast Mediator complex is required for transcriptional regulation both in vivo and in vitro and the identification of similar complexes from metazoans indicates that its function is conserved through evolution. Mediator subunit composition and structure is well characterized both by biochemical, genetic and biophysical methods. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dynamics of the Bacterial Genome : Rates and Mechanisms of Mutation

    Author : Sanna Koskiniemi; Dan Andersson; Diarmaid Hughes; Ivan Matic; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Bacterial chromosomes are highly dynamic, continuously changing with respect to gene content and size via a number of processes, including deletions that result in gene loss. How deletions form and at what rates has been the focus of this thesis. In paper II we investigated how chromosomal location affects chromosomal deletion rates in S. READ MORE

  4. 4. Regulatory mechanisms involved in pathoadaptation of extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli

    Author : Nikola Zlatkov; Bernt Eric Uhlin; Åke Forsberg; Sun Nyunt Wai; Eliora Ron; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Establishment of commensal bacteria within a new niche of their host usually promotes the transition from commensalism to pathogenicity. Extraintestinal Pathogenic Escherichia coli (ExPEC) represent different pathovars with biphasic lifestyle – they can reside in the gut as commensals or they can escape and cause diseases elsewhere in the human body.
