  1. 1. Genetic Analyses of Multiple Sclerosis and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus : From Single Markers to Genome-Wide Data

    Author : Johanna K Sandling; Ann-Christine Syvänen; Lovisa Lovmar; Joseph Terwilliger; Javier Martín Ibáñez; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Systemic lupus erythematosus; Multiple Sclerosis; Association study; Type I interferon system; Single nucleotide polymorphism; Molecular medicine genetics and pathology ; Molekylär medicin genetik och patologi ; Molekylär medicin; Molecular Medicine;

    Abstract : In autoimmune diseases an individual’s immune system becomes targeted at the body’s own healthy cells. The aim of this thesis was to identify genetic risk factors for the two autoimmune diseases multiple sclerosis (MS) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). READ MORE

  2. 2. THE ANDROGEN RECEPTOR GGN POLYMORPHISM. Genetic and functional analyses

    Abstract : Male sex development and reproductive function is regulated by androgens acting via the androgen receptor (AR). The AR harbours two polymorphic repeats of CAG and GGN triplets, encoding glutamines and glycines, respectively. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic Determinants of Dyslipidemia

    Abstract : Dyslipidemia is a chronic deviation from normal blood lipid levels that can lead to atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases; dyslipidemia and its sequelae are caused by the complex interplay of genetic and environmental factors. Although circulating concentrations of total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) have a strong genetic underpinning, not much is known about the genetic factors that affect long-term deteriorations in lipid concentrations.

  4. 4. Antibody responses and Fc gamma receptor IIa polymorphism in relation to Plasmodium falciparum malaria

    Author : Nnaemeka C. Iriemenam; Klavs Berzins; Marita Troye-Blomberg; Philippe Deloron; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : Immunity to asexual blood-stage of Plasmodium falciparum malaria is believed to be associated with protective antibodies of certain immunoglobulin classes and subclasses. This thesis addressed the importance of antibodies in relation to malaria infection and their effective interactions with Fc gamma receptor IIa (FcyRIIa) polymorphisms. READ MORE

  5. 5. Methods for Analyzing Genomes

    Abstract : The human genome reference sequence has given us a two‐dimensional blueprint of our inherited code of life, but we need to employ modern‐day technology to expand our knowledge into a third dimension. Inter‐individual and intra‐individual variation has been shown to be larger than anticipated, and the mode of genetic regulation more complex. READ MORE
