  1. 1. Mechanisms of Regulation of the Cell Cycle Inhibitor p21Waf1/Cip1 in TGF-β-Mediated Cell Growth Inhibition

    Author : Katerina Pardali; Aristidis Moustakas; Carl-Hernrik Heldin; Marikki Laiho; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; TGF-β; cell cycle; p21; Smad; signal transduction; transcription; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : TGF-β is the founding member of a multifunctional family of cytokines that regulate many aspects of cell physiology, including cell growth, differentiation, motility and death and play important roles in many developmental and pathological processes. TGF-β signals by binding to a heterotetrameric complex of type I and type II serine/threonine kinase receptors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Quantification of Radiation Induced DNA Damage Response in Normal Skin Exposed in Clinical Settings

    Author : Martin Simonsson; Ingela Turesson; Gunilla Enblad; Dag Rune Olsen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DNA damage response; low-dose hypersensitivity; dose response; normal tissue; epidermis; dermis; keratinocyte; fractionated radiotherapy; DNA double strand break; DSB; foci; gamma-H2AX; 53BP1; p21; checkpoint; apoptosis; mitosis; micro-RNA; miR-34a; Oncology; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Abstract : The structure, function and accessibility of epidermal skin provide aunique opportunity to study the DNA damage response (DDR) of a normaltissue. The in vivo response can be examined in detail, at a molecularlevel, and further associated to the structural changes, observed at atissue level. READ MORE

  3. 3. Interferon-alpha signaling and cell cycle regulation in neuroendocrine tumors of the digestive system

    Author : Yinghua Zhou; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; interferon-α; carcinoid tumors; interferon regulatory factor; p68; PKR; p21; p27; cell cycle; cyclin-dependent kinase; protein phosphorylation; protein trafficking; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : The prognosis for untreated carcinoid patients is poor and their quality of life is low. IFN-α treatment has shown a response rate of 50-80%, however, the antitumor mechanism has not been elucidated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Epidermal Melanocyte Response to Radiotherapy

    Author : Per Fessé; Henrik Lindman; Ingela Turesson; Johan Ahlgren; Jan Nyman; Catharine West; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Melanocytes; fractionated radiotherapy; ΔNp63; MITF; PAX3; SOX10; p53; p21; BMI1; pRb; CXCR2; DNA-DSB; 53BP1; CXCR2;

    Abstract : Cutaneous interfollicular melanocytes protect the skin from UV-radiation (UVR), and their response to UVR is well established. To date, the response activated in melanocytes by repeated genotoxic insults from radiotherapy (RT) has not been explored. READ MORE

  5. 5. DNA Damage Response of Normal Epidermis in the Clinical Setting of Fractionated Radiotherapy : Evidence of a preserved low-dose hypersensitivity response

    Author : Fredrik Qvarnström; Ingela Turesson; Gunilla Enblad; Mats Harms-Ringdahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DNA damage response; low-dose hypersensitivity; dose response; normal tissue; epidermis; keratinocyte; fractionated radiotherapy; DNA double strand break; DSB; foci; γH2AX; 53BP1; checkpoint; p21; apoptosis; mitosis; Oncology; Onkologi; Oncology; onkologi;

    Abstract : Investigations of DNA damage response (DDR) mechanisms in normal tissues have implications for both cancer prevention and treatments. The accumulating knowledge about protein function and molecular markers makes it possible to directly trace and interpret cellular DDR in a tissue context. READ MORE
