  1. 1. Regulation of the ribosomal RNA transcription by c-MYC oncoprotein

    Författare :Azadeh Arabi; Anthony Wright; Robert White; Södertörns högskola; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Myc; Nucleolus; Proteasome; RNA Polymerase; Cancer;

    Sammanfattning : The transcription factor c-Myc is a key regulator of growth and proliferation. c-Myc levels are tightly controlled and deregulated c-Myc is often associated with human cancers. In our initial studies we observed that upon inhibition of proteasomes, excess c-Myc accumulates primarily in the nucleoli. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Ribosomal Proteins in Diamond-Blackfan Anemia : Insights into Failure of Ribosome Function

    Författare :Jitendra Badhai; Niklas Dahl; Anthony Wright; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Diamond-Blackfan anemia; RPS19; Ribosomal proteins; Haploinsufficiency; cell cycle; Apoptosis; Erythropoiesis; Medical genetics; Medicinsk genetik; Clinical Genetics; klinisk genetik;

    Sammanfattning : Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA) is a severe congenital anemia characterized by a defect in red blood cell production. The disease is associated with growth retardation, malformations, a predisposition for malignant disease and heterozygous mutations in either of the ribosomal protein (RP) genes RPS7, RPS17, RPS19, RPS24, RPL5, RPL11 and RPL35a.

  3. 3. Characterization of RNA polymerase II subunit Rpb7 in silencing and transcription

    Författare :Ingela Djupedal; Karl Ekwall; Anthony Wright; Olivier Voinnet; Södertörns högskola; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : The DNA in eukaryotes is arranged in fibres of chromatin. The chromatin may be more or less compacted and the degree of condensation of the chromatin affects the accessibility of the DNA. The accessibility of the DNA, in turn, affects transcription and gene regulation. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Genome wide analysis of the Ssn6-Tup11/Tup12 co-repressor complex in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe

    Författare :Fredrik Fagerström-Billai; Anthony Ph Wright; Karl Ekwall; Hans Ronne; Fredrik Fagerström Billai; Södertörns högskola; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : In this study, we have investigated the fission yeast Ssn6-Tup11 /Tup 12 transcriptional corepressor which is involved in regulation of many genes important for a wide variety of processes. In contrast to the well characterised budding yeast Tup1 protein there are two paralogous proteins present in fission yeast, namely Tup11 and Tup12. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Studies of transcription factor domains and their interactions with other transcription factors

    Författare :Monica E. Ferreira; Anthony Wright; Kurt Berndt; Iain McEwan; Monica E Ferreira; Södertörns högskola; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : The studies in this thesis deal with different questions concerning interactions of functional domains of factors involved in transcriptional regulation. The first study of this thesis is focused on the target factor binding mechanism of transcriptional activators. LÄS MER
