  1. 1. Ubiquitination and Receptor Endocytosis

    Author : Kaisa Haglund; Carl-Henrik Heldin; Ivan Dikic; Harald Stenmark; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; Ubiquitination; receptor tyrosine kinase; endocytosis; Cbl; CIN85; EGFR; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Protein ubiquitination is an evolutionary conserved mechanism that controls a wide variety of cellular functions. Polyubiquitinated proteins are generally degraded in the proteasome, whereas monoubiquitination controls various other cellular processes, including endocytosis and endosomal sorting. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies of PDGF receptor signaling in vitro and in vivo

    Author : Maria Tsioumpekou; Carl-Henrik Heldin; Jean-Baptiste Demoulin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PDGF; signaling; cancer; Erk5; kinase; Cbl; ubiquitination; deubiquitinase; pericytes; tumor growth; angiogenesis; low molecular weight inhibitors;

    Abstract : Platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR) signaling is essential for proliferation, migration and survival of cells of mesenchymal origin; however, its deregulation has been associated with various diseases, including cancer. The aim of this thesis was to clarify the molecular mechanisms of PDGFR signaling regulation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Regulation of Platelet-Derived Growth Factor Receptor Signaling and its Targeting in Cancer Therapy

    Author : Haisha Ma; Johan Lennartsson; Håkan Axelson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PDGF; PDGFR; Ras; macropinocytosis; Fer; STAT3; HD-PTP; Cbl; ubiquitination; pericyte; vasculature; tumor; ASKA; Biology with specialization in Molecular Cell Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Overactivity of platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR) is a frequent event in many types of solid tumors. Therefore, it is of great importance to uncover the mechanisms that regulate PDGF/PDGFR signalling, to develop efficient inhibitors targeting this pathway. READ MORE

  4. 4. Functional characterization of the human adenovirus pVII protein and non-coding VA RNAI

    Author : Raviteja Inturi; Tanel Punga; Goran Akusjarvi; Thomas Dobner; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adenovirus; VA RNA; protein VII; Ubiquitination; proteasome; anti-viral; Medical Biochemistry; Medicinsk biokemi; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Medical Virology; Medicinsk virologi;

    Abstract : Human adenovirus (HAdV) is a common pathogen causing a broad spectrum of diseases. HAdV encodes the pVII protein, which is involved in nuclear delivery, protection and expression of viral DNA. To suppress the cellular interferon (IFN) and RNA interference (RNAi) systems, HAdVs encode non-coding virus-associated (VA) RNAs. READ MORE

  5. 5. Human adenovirus – host cell interplay : The role of the cellular zinc finger proteins and mitochondrial DNA

    Author : Kwangchol Mun; Tanel Punga; Stefan Schwartz; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Adenovirus; Protein VII; Ubiquitination; Chromatin remodeling; Mitochondria;

    Abstract : Human adenovirus (HAdV) is an abundant DNA virus with significant clinical relevance since it cauces a variety of respiratory, ocular, and gastrointestinal diseases. It is also intensively used as a therapeutic tool to treat cancers and to boost immune responses. READ MORE
