    Abstract : Language-play can briefly be described as the wilful manipulation of the peculiarities of a linguistic system in a way that draws attention to these peculiarities themselves, thereby causing a communicative and cognitive effect that goes beyond the conveyance of propositional meaning. Among the various phenomena answering this description are the different kinds of puns, but also more strictly form-based manipulations such as rhymes and alliteration, in addition to a host of other, sometimes even fuzzier, subcategories.

    Abstract : Spinal neurons are important in several aspects motor control. For example, the neurons essential for locomotor movements reside in the ventral spinal cord. In this thesis, different motor control functions are being related to neuronal populations defined by their common expression of a gene. READ MORE

  3. 3. Receptor Upregulation and MAPK Activity in Arteries and Bronchi Following Secondhand Smoke Exposure

    Abstract : Cigarette smoking is a major risk factor for cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. Contractile receptor changes have been observed in several vascular diseases. The intracellular mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathways are suggested to be associated with receptor upregulation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mechanistic characterization of post-transcriptional gene silencing

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : With the ongoing task of identifying and characterizing genes in the human genome, there is a great demand for tools to study these genes. Today, reverse genetics is the most effective way to explore gene function. This involves suppression of the gene of interest by a set of manipulation techniques. READ MORE
