  1. 1. Molecular insights into primer removal during mtDNA replication

    Author : Ali Al-Behadili; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mitochondria; Mitochondrial DNA replication; DNA replication; Primer removal; RNase H1; Primer formation; Replication initiation; mitochondrial diseases;

    Abstract : Mitochondria are vital for cell survival, and the primary producers of ATP, the energy currency used for various metabolic processes. Mitochondria are unique from other cellular compartments because they have their own genomes of circular small double-stranded DNA (mtDNA) of approximately 16. READ MORE

  2. 2. Structural and biochemical basis for the high fidelity and processivity of DNA polymerase ε

    Author : Rais Ahmad Ganai; Erik Johansson; Per Elias; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA polymerase ε; Crystal structure; P domain; Pre-steady state kinetics; β-hairpin loop; Primer switching; Strand displacement; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : DNA polymerase epsilon (Pol ε) is a multi-subunit B-family DNA polymerase that is involved in leading strand DNA replication in eukaryotes. DNA Pol ε in yeast consists of four subunits, Pol2, Dpb2, Dpb3, and Dpb4. Pol2 is the catalytic subunit and Dpb2, Dpb3, and Dpb4 are the accessory subunits. READ MORE

  3. 3. Allogeneic dendritic cells as adjuvants in cancer immunotherapy

    Author : Grammatiki Fotaki; Magnus Essand; Alex Karlsson-Parra; Di Yu; Tanja de Gruijl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Allogeneic dendritic cells; immune primer; adjuvant; adenoviral vector; cancer immunotherapy; tumor microenvironment; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology;

    Abstract : In recent years, immunotherapeutic approaches have achieved remarkable successes through checkpoint blockade antibodies, advances in the use of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells and new insights into the immunosuppressive role of the tumor microenvironment (TME). Through the advances, the role of cancer vaccines based on ex vivo manipulated autologous dendritic cells (DC) has been challenged. READ MORE

  4. 4. Chemical communication in mating shore crabs Carcinus maenas

    Author : Mattias Ekerholm; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Zoology; Urine communication; Behavior; Spatial scale; Male pheromone; Primer pheromone; Zoologi; Olfaction;

    Abstract : Locating and evaluating a suitable partner for mating is one of the most important events in any sexually reproducing organism. To achieve this, an animal must be able to locate its partner over both long and short distances, and finally evoke the proper mating behaviour. READ MORE

  5. 5. Selection of antigens for antibody-based proteomics

    Author : Lisa Berglund; Mathias Uhlén; Sören Brunak; KTH; []
