  1. 1. Studies on signaling pathways induced by FLT3, an important oncogene in AML

    Author : Elena Razumovskaya; Institutionen för translationell medicin; []

    Abstract : FLT3, a receptor tyrosine kinase, is expressed in hematopoietic progenitor cells. FLT3-ITD (internal tandem duplication) and D835 mutations are found in approximately 30% and 7% of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) patients respectively, and correlate with a poor prognosis, thus making the mutated receptor a potential therapeutic target.

  2. 2. DNA Tetraplexes and Nucleosome Positioning Sequences

    Author : Tomas Simonsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Nucleosome; myc; gene expression; oncogene; DNA tetraplex;

    Abstract : All eukaryotic organisms package their genomes into a nucleoprotein complex known as chromatin, whose major constituents are the DNA and proteins known as histones. The non-covalent association of histones with DNA results in considerable compaction and allows the organisation of the genome into the cell nucleus. READ MORE

  3. 3. Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase mutations and downstream signalling

    Author : Christina Schönherr; Ruth H Palmer; Aristidis Moustakas; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : The oncogene Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) is a Receptor Tyrosine Kinase (RTK) and was initially discovered as the fusion protein NPM (nucleophosmin)-ALK in a subset of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphomas (ALCL). Since then more fusion proteins have been identified in a variety of cancers. READ MORE

  4. 4. From 1p3 to PI3K - Studies of neuroblastoma

    Abstract : Neuroblastoma (NB) is a tumor of the sympathetic nervous system and is the most common extra-cranial tumor of childhood, accounting for 7% of all pediatric malignancies. Despite recent advances in therapeutics, outcome is still fatal for patients with aggressive NB and side-effects of treatment are severe. READ MORE

  5. 5. Chromatin and transcriptome-based integrative approaches to profile functional long noncoding RNAs - A computational approach

    Author : Santhilal Subhash; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Computational biology; Long noncoding RNAs; Chromatin; S-phase; Cell cycle; sperm; Epigenetics; Histone; cancer; oncogene; Tumor suppressor; DNA methylation; Histone modifications; Chromatin remodelers; lncRNAs; lincRNAs;

    Abstract : One of the major hallmarks of cancer is aberrant or uncontrollable cell division, which occurs due to a defective cell cycle process. During the synthesis phase (S-phase) of the cell cycle, before cell division or mitosis phase, the DNA in the cell makes a new copy to pass on genetic information to the daughter cells. READ MORE
