    Abstract : The goal of this PhD thesis was to define the importance of the interplay between reactive oxygen species (ROS) and their activation of the tumor suppressor p53 in development and disease. We addressed this question using molecular biology and biochemical techniques together with mouse genetics and bioinformatics. READ MORE

  4. 4. DNA repair and the p53 pathway in ischemic and traumatic brain injury

    Author : Gregor Tomasevic; Neurokirurgi; []

    Abstract : Ischemic and traumatic brain damage are major causes of disability and death. While much effort has been spent to develop pharmacological treatments for these conditions, no neuroprotective drugs are in clinical use. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the function of the interferon-inducible p53 target gene TRIM22

    Author : Jessica Petersson; Avdelningen för hematologi och transfusionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TRIM22; Staf50; p53; IFN; translation; proliferation; cell death;

    Abstract : The interferon-inducible p53-target gene TRIM22 (Staf50) is a member of the TRIM (TRIpartite Motif) family. The TRIM family is a family of RING (Really Interesting New Gene) proteins, defined through a tripartite motif, containing a RING-domain, one or two B-boxes and a Coiled-coil-domain. READ MORE
