  1. 1. Stability of bacterial DNA in relation to microbial detection in teeth

    Författare :Malin Brundin; Ulf Sjögren; Anders Johansson; David Figdor; Inge Fristad; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell-bound DNA; cell-death; dentine; DNA binding affinity; DNA decomposition; DNA preservation; extracellular DNA; hydroxyapatite; PCR; polymerase chain reaction; odontologi; Odontology;

    Sammanfattning : The fate of DNA from dead cells is an important issue when interpreting results from root canal infections analysed by the PCR technique. DNA from dead bacterial cells is known to be detectable long time after cell death and its stability is dependent on many different factors. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Statistical models of TF/DNA interaction

    Författare :Aymeric Fouquier d'Herouel; Erik Aurell; Otto Berg; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; gene expression; regulation; transcription factor; binding motif; matrix representations; gibbs sampling; binding affinity; non-specific binding; Biological physics; Biologisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : Gene expression is regulated in response to metabolic necessities and environmental changes throughout the life of a cell. A major part of this regulation is governed at the level of transcription, deciding whether messengers to specific genes are produced or not. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Structural and Functional Studies of Wilms Tumour Protein - WT1; Novel Insights into Functionality of Zinc Finger Proteins

    Författare :Elmar Nurmemmedov; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Naturvetenskap; Natural science; function; structure; transcription factor; cancer; affinity; kinetics; Biacore; RNA binding; DNA binding; Wilms tumour WT1 ; zinc finger;

    Sammanfattning : The molecular process under which message in DNA is relayed onto RNA is called transcription, and it accomplished through involvement of so-called transcription factors. Zinc finger proteins are one of the most abundant classes of regulatory proteins in eukaryotic cells where they play central roles in a variety of cellular activities. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Chiral Ruthenium Dipyrodiphenazine Complexes: DNA Binding and Excited State Relaxation

    Författare :Björn Önfelt; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :polarization spectroscopy; DNA-probe; dppz; excited-state relaxation; intercalation; solvent relaxation; DNA-threading;

    Sammanfattning : Ruthenium complexes with aromatic ligands have been extensively studied due to their interesting photophysical properties, including photophysics and electron transfer upon interaction with nucleic acids. For example, the broad absorption spectrum makes them suitable as antenna molecules in photochemical reaction systems and their ability to accept or donate electrons in their excited state could have potential in opto-electronical devices.

  5. 5. Development of Fluorescent Nucleobase Analogues - Intrinsically labelled nucleic acids for molecular binding investigations

    Författare :Mattias Bood; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA; RNA; Fluorescent nucleobase analogue; FRET; pre-microRNA; isothermal titration calorimetry; surface plasmon resonance; aminoglycoside; binding interaction;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on the design, synthesis and utilization of fluorescent nucleobase analogues (FBAs). FBAs are an important class of compounds, used in the research of nucleic acids. The class of canonical FBAs, i.e. LÄS MER
