  1. 1. The Adenovirus L4-33K Protein A Key Regulator of Virus-specific Alternative Splicing

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Heidi Törmänen Persson; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; L4-33K; adenovirus; splicing; phosphorylation; localization; replication centers; L4-22K; MLTU; DNA-PK; DNA-dependent protein kinase; PKA; cAMP-dependent protein kinase; transcription sites; SR protein; Medical Virology; Medicinsk virologi;

    Abstract : Adenoviruses have been extensively studied in the field of gene regulation, since their genes are subjected to a tightly controlled temporal expression during the virus lifetime. The early-to-late shift in adenoviral gene expression distinguishes two completely different programs in gene expression. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human Aquaporins: Production, Characterization and Interactions

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jennie Sjöhamn; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aquaporins; membrane protein; protein production; protein characterization; protein:protein interactions; structural biochemistry;

    Abstract : Membrane proteins are essential components of the cell and responsible for the communication with the outside environment and transport of molecules across the membrane. Water transport is facilitated by aquaporins, which are water selective transmembrane pores that serve to maintain cell homeostasis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Protein kinases in hormonal regulation of adipocyte metabolism

    University dissertation from Protein Phosphorylation, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Christine Berggreen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adipocyte; PKB; AMPK; SIK3; insulin; catecholamines; lipolysis; lipogenesis; glucose uptake; de novo fatty acid synthesis; A769662; Akti; cAMP;

    Abstract : Abstract Along with liver and muscle tissue, adipose tissue helps maintain normal levels of glucose and lipids in the blood and has a very important role when it comes to storing lipids that can provide whole-body energy. After a meal is ingested, adipocytes take up glucose from the circulation and use it as a substrate for synthesis of new fatty acids (FAs) in a process known as de novo fatty acid synthesis, as well as for synthesis of glycerol.

  4. 4. Bioimaging for analysis of protein expression in cells and tissues using affinity reagents

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Emma Lundberg; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Affibody; antibody; biomarker; cell line; cell microarray; colorectal cancer; confocal microscopy; HER2; immunohistochemistry; immunofluorescence; light microscopy; protein expression; protein localization; SATB2; tissue microarray; TECHNOLOGY Bioengineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Bioteknik; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : The detection and analysis of biomolecules, such as proteins, are of great interest since these molecules are fundamental for life and our health. Due to the complexity of biological processes, there is a great advantage of studying proteins in their natural context, for example by using bioimaging. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards subcellular localization of the human proteome using bioimaging

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Charlotte Stadler; KTH.; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antibody; antibody validation; automated image analysis; automated microscopy; cell line; confocal microscopy; fixation; green fluorescent protein GFP ; immunofluorescence IF ; organelle; protein expression; siRNA; subcellular localization;

    Abstract : Since the publication of the complete sequence of the human genome in 2003 there has been great interest in exploring the functions of the proteins encoded by the genes. To reveal the function of each and every protein, investigation of protein localization at the subcellular level has become a central focus in this research area, since the localization and function of a protein is closely related.
