1. Regulation of adenovirus alternative pre-mRNA splicing : Functional characterization of exonic and intronic splicing enhancer elements
Sammanfattning : Pre-mRNA splicing and alternative pre-mRNA splicing are key regulatory steps controlling geneexpression in higher eukaryotes. The work in this thesis was focused on a characterization of thesignificance of exonic and intronic splicing enhancer elements for pre-mRNA splicing. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) cause almost half of the human cancers that are attributable to viruses. HPV type 16 is the most carcinogenic type among the HPVs and is detected in 50% of all cervical cancers. HPV-16 infects epithelial cells and HPV-16 gene expression is tightly linked to the differentiation stage of the infected cells. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER
4. The Modular Domain Structure of ASF/SF2: Significance for its Function as a Regulator of RNA Splicing
Sammanfattning : ASF/SF2 is an essential splicing factor, required for constitutive splicing, and functioning as a regulator of alternative splicing. ASF/SF2 is modular in structure and contains two amino-terminal RNA binding domains (RBD1 and RBD2), and a carboxy-terminal RS domain. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Alternative splicing of pre-mRNA is the primary source of creating proteome diversity in humans; it is therefore highly relevant to disease and therapy. Alternative splicing has been described for many cytokines and these splice variants appear to function as either agonists or as antagonists of the wildtype cytokine. LÄS MER
