  1. 1. Molecular Tools for Nucleic Acid Analysis

    Author : Deirdre O'Meara; KTH; []
    Keywords : nucleic acid capture; modular probes; biosensor; bio-magnetic separation; hepatitis C; sequencing; pyrosequencing; mutation detection; HIV-1; drug resistance; SNP; allele-specific extension; apyrase; genotyping.;

    Abstract : Nucleic acid technology has assumed an essential role invarious areas ofin vitrodiagnostics ranging from infectious diseasediagnosis to human genetics. An important requirement of suchmolecular methods is that they achieve high sensitivity andspecificity with a fast turnaround time in a cost-effectivemanner. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thermodynamics of Peptide Nucleic Acid Interactions with DNA

    Author : Tommi Ratilainen; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : thermodynamics; enthalpy-entropy compensation; ionic strength; nucleic acids; fluorescence energy transfer; PNA; calorimetry; sequence-specific binding;

    Abstract : Peptide Nucleic Acid (PNA) is a DNA mimic with the natural nucleobases attached to a charge-neutral pseudopeptide backbone. It has remarkably strong and sequence-specific binding affinity to natural nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), mainly attributed to the lack of charge in the PNA backbone. READ MORE

  4. 4. Nucleic acid based therapeutic approaches

    Author : Joacim Elmén; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : Nucleic acid therapy comprises several approaches based on nucleic acid as the active therapeutic component to treat human disease. Antisense and short interfering RNA (siRNA) are two gene-silencing techniques in this category. Based on nucleic acid sequence recognition both techniques inhibit gene expression. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular dynamics of protein-nucleic acid complexes

    Author : Katarina Hart; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : Nucleic acids are essential molecules when it comes to replication, transcription and translation of the genetic information and nearly all functions of nucleic acids are carried out in complex with proteins. The proteins need to be able to discriminate between different sites on the nucleic acids for correct binding. READ MORE
