  2. 2. Visualization and manipulation of microRNA in neural cells

    University dissertation from Molecular Neurogenetics, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Rohit Sachdeva; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; microRNA; miRNA; miR-124; miR-9; embryonic stem cells; neural stem cell; cell transplantation; neurogenesis; microglia;

    Abstract : microRNA (miRNA) are small non-coding RNA, 21-23 nucleotides long. miRNA provide a new layer of regulatory control over gene expression programs. It is increasingly evident that miRNA are cell type and tissue specific. Many miRNAs have been identified to be highly abundant in certain regions of the brain. READ MORE

  3. 3. A small amoeba at the crossroads of the big RNAi world MicroRNA biogenesis and Argonaute function in Dictyostelium discoideum

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Zhen Liao; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; RNAi; microRNA; Argonaute protein; miRNA biogenesis; Dictyostelium discoideum; social amoeba; Dicer; development; growth; Biology with specialization in Molecular Cell Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Small non-coding RNA (ncRNA) mediated gene silencing, known as RNAi, is a key regulatory mechanism of gene expression in eukaryotes. MicroRNAs (miRNA), one major type of small ncRNAs, are about 21nt long and bound by Argonaute proteins. READ MORE

  4. 4. Vascular smooth muscle mechanotransduction and plasticity-the role of microRNA, calcium signaling and actin polymerization

    University dissertation from Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Author : Karolina Turczynska; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PYK2; actin polymerization; calcium; microRNA; stretch;

    Abstract : Smooth muscle cells residing in the blood vessel media are constantly exposed to mechanical forces exerted by the intraluminal pressure. The smooth muscle senses and adapts to mechanical forces by activation of multiple signaling pathways and cytoskeletal rearrangements. READ MORE

  5. 5. Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumor Analyses Somatostatin Analog Effects and MicroRNA Profiling

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Su-Chen Li; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors; Somatostatin analogs; Laser-capture microdissection; Microarray profiling and microRNA profiling; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) originate from serotonin-producing enterochromaffin (EC) cells in the intestinal mucosa. Somatostatin analogs (SSAs) are mainly used to control hormonal secretion and tumor growth. However, the molecular mechanisms leading to the control of SI-NETs are unknown. READ MORE
