  1. 1. Molecular Genetic Studies of Sporadic and MEN1-Associated Endocrine Pancreatic Tumors

    Författare :Daniel Lindberg; Gunnar Westin; Göran Åkerström; Bo Wängberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Surgery; pancreatic endocrine tumor; MEN1; LOH; WNT7A; HDAC11; CDK4; CDKN2B p15; CDKN1B p27; CDKN2C p18; c-Myc; Smad4; pyrosequencing; epigenetic; methylation; tumor suppressor; Kirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs) may cause typical syndromes of hormone excess, or appear clinically non-functioning without hormonal symptoms. PETs occur sporadically, in association with the multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) syndrome, or rarely the von Hippel-Lindau syndrome. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Cell cycle regulatory genes in human astrocytic tumors

    Författare :Koichi Ichimura; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Cancer is a genetic disorder of somatic cells. Neoplastic transformation andmalignant progression may be a consequence of accumulated multiple genetic changes in acell. Astrocytic gliomas are the commonest brain tumors in humans. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Role of the CDKN2A and related cell cycle regulatory genes in melanoma and other human cancers

    Författare :Johanna Smeds; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; CDKN2A; ARF; p53; cell cycle regulation; mutation; melanoma; esophageal squamous cell carcinoma;

    Sammanfattning : The main objective of this thesis has been to investigate the involvement of the CDKN2A (p16INK4a and p14ARF) and related cell cycle regulatory genes in melanoma and other types of human cancer. The CDKN2A gene represents a unique locus in the entire human genome. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The cell cycle regulators p15, p16, p18 and p19 : functions and regulation during normal cell cycle and in multistep carcinogenesis

    Författare :Minna Thullberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : The tumor suppressor protein p16INK4a and its family members p15INK4b, p18INK4c and p19INK4d (the INK4 proteins) inhibit the cyclin-dependent kinases CDK4 and CDK6, which are key regulators of the retinoblastoma protein (pRb). pRb guards entry into the S phase of the mammalian cell division cycle (the cell cycle), a process evolved to ensure balanced cell proliferation.

  5. 5. Proliferation, Invasion and p16 Localisation in Malignancies

    Författare :Kristina Nilsson; Malmö Patologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; onkologi; Cytologi; cancerology; Cytology; oncology; skin tumours; invasion; p16; cancer; patologisk anatomi; Patologi allmän ; pathological anatomy; proliferation; General pathology;

    Sammanfattning : Uncontrolled proliferation and invasion are two characteristics in tumour development and progression. Previous studies have shown that invading tumour cells in colorectal cancer have low proliferation in parallel to upregulation of the tumour suppressor p16. LÄS MER
