1. A-to-I RNA editing : Function and consequences during brain development
Sammanfattning : The aim of my thesis has been to study how A-to-I RNA editing of miRNAs is regulated during brain development and the biological function of these editing events.Using high throughput RNA sequencing, we performed an unbiased search for edited, mature miRNAs in total mouse brain tissue from three developmental stages.

2. Regulation of site-selective A-to-I RNA editing : During mammalian brain development
Sammanfattning : Adenosine (A) to inosine (I) RNA editing is a widespread post-transcriptional mechanism in mammals that contributes to increase the protein diversity. Adenosine deaminases that act on RNA (ADARs) are the enzymes catalyzing RNA editing. ADARs are particularly active within the brain where they act on transcripts involved in neurotransmission.

3. Novel sites of A-to-I RNA editing in the mammalian brain
Sammanfattning : The number of protein-coding genes are likely not sufficient to account for the complexity of higher organisms. It is plausible that the proteome is responsible for the complexity of an organism. LÄS MER
4. Deregulation and editing of microRNAs in metastatic prostate cancer
Sammanfattning : Prostate cancer bone metastasis is still not fully understood, and increased knowledge could aid in the development of better treatment options for patients in the future. This thesis focuses on microRNAs (miRNAs), which modulate gene expression in healthy and tumour cells. LÄS MER
5. Regulation of RNA Editing : The impact of inosine on the neuronal transcriptome
Sammanfattning : The transcriptome of the mammalian brain is extensively modified by adenosine to inosine (A-to-I) nucleotide conversion by two adenosine deaminases (ADAR1 and ADAR2). As adenosine and inosine have different base pairing properties, A-to-I RNA editing shapes the functional output of both coding and non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) in the brain. LÄS MER
