    Sammanfattning : Chronic inflammation has been implicated in the development of several types of cancer, and evidence from observational and animal studies suggests that it may play a role also in prostate carcinogenesis. Recent observations have brought Cutibacterium acnes (C. acnes) forward as a possible causative agent in pro-oncogenic prostatic inflammation. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Structural and biochemical insights into biosynthesis and degradation of N-glycans

    Författare :Tom Reichenbach; Christina Divne; David Drew; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; N-glycan; biosynthesis; degradation; glycosyltransferase; glycoside hydrolase; biofuel; enzyme; membrane protein; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Sammanfattning : Carbohydrates are a primary energy source for all living organisms, but importantly, they also participate in a number of life-sustaining biological processes, e.g. cell signaling and cell-wall synthesis. The first part of the thesis examines glycosyltransferases that play a crucial role in the biosynthesis of N-glycans. LÄS MER
