  1. 1. RAP1 at the Yeast Telomere

    Author : Johan Wahlin; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cytogenetik; DNA-binding; Saccharomyces; yeast; telomeric repeat; telomere; RAP1; repressor activator protein 1; Genetics; cytogenetics; Genetik;

    Abstract : Telomeres are specialized complexes of DNA and proteins that cap and confer stability to the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes. The telomeric DNA of most eukaryotes is composed of tandemly arranged short repeats. Within the budding yeasts these repeats are diverged in length as well as in nucleotide composition. READ MORE

  2. 2. Telomeric DNA in Chironomus, a naturally telomerase-free system

    Author : Monika Rosén; Udo Häckers grupp Utvecklingsbiologi i invertebrater; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology; Chironomus; extrachromosomal telomeric repeats; RNA-DNA complex; 3´overhang; telocentric chromosome end; Telomere; complex repeats; Biologi; Genetics; cytogenetics; Genetik; cytogenetik;

    Abstract : Telomeres are specialized complexes of DNA and associated proteins that protect the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes. Although most organisms have short repeated DNA sequences at their telomeres, which are specified and maintained by the enzyme telomerase, there are a few exceptions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Repetitive DNA in search of a function - a study of telomeric and centromeric sequences in Chironomus

    Author : Casimiro Castillejo-Lopez; Udo Häckers grupp Utvecklingsbiologi i invertebrater; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Chironomus; CENP-B box; mobile elements; reverse transcriptase; gene conversion; satellite; repetitive DNA; Telomere; centromere; Genetics; cytogenetics; Genetik; cytogenetik;

    Abstract : Repetitive DNA is quantitatively the main component of telomeres and centromeres, structures responsible for maintenance of the eukaryotic chromosome. The telomere is the specialized nucleoprotein complex that terminates linear chromosomes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Classes of DNA associated with telomeres in the chironomids C. pallidivittatus and C. tentans

    Author : Iréne Kamnert; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Genetics; Chironomus; subtelomere; gene conversion; subfamilies; telomere; complex repeats; cytogenetics; Genetik; cytogenetik;

    Abstract : Telomeres in Chironomus consist of long complex tandem DNA repeats, which in C. pallidivittatus have been shown to extend to the extreme end of chromosomes. In C. pallidivittatus the telomeric repeats are present in large blocks, 50-200kb in size, most of them belonging to four major subfamilies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Chromatin Structure: Nucleosome Formation and Positioning

    Author : Hans R. Widlund; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; centromere; formation; chromatin; nucleosome; telomere;

    Abstract : In all eukaryotic cells the DNA is complexed with a group of highly basic histone proteins forming nucleosomes and higher order chromatin structures. In the nucleosome the DNA is tightly wrapped, almost two turns, around an octamer of histone proteins. READ MORE
