  1. 1. Bacterial DNA repair and molecular search

    Författare :Arvid H. Gynnå; Johan Elf; Stephen Kowalczykowski; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA repair; DNA damage; homologous recombination; homologous repair; recombination; RecA; I-SceI; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biotechnology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär bioteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Surveillance and repair of DNA damage is necessary in all kinds of life. Different types of DNA damage require different repair mechanisms, but these mechanisms are often similar in all domains of life. The most serious type of damage, double stranded DNA breaks, are for example repaired in conceptually similar ways in both bacteria and eukaryotes. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Structural Adaptation of DNA to Small Ligands and Recombination Proteins

    Författare :Hye-Kyung Kim; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; triplex DNA; groove binders; intercalators; SANS; DNA; optical spectroscopy; recombination proteins;

    Sammanfattning : In order to contribute to the understanding of mechanisms of recognition in nucleic acid systems, the interaction of DNA with a variety of ligands, representing different cases of adaptation of the double-helix structure, was studied using flow linear dichroism (LD), circular dichroism (CD), fluorescence and absorption spectroscopic techniques. A chiral hydrophobic metal complex, [Ru(dpphen)3]2+ was examined, since this had been reported to be the most efficient molecule to discriminate DNA handedness. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Replication Dynamics in the DNA Damage Response

    Författare :Petra Groth; Thomas Helleday; Geroge Iliakis; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA damage; DNA replication; homologous recombination; DNA double strand-breaks; ionizing radiation; alkylating agents; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Genetics; Genetik; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Sammanfattning : Faithful DNA replication is essential and the induction of replication stress may have profound effects on genomic integrity. This is demonstrated by the formation of DNA double strand breaks (DSBs), considered to be the most toxic DNA lesions, at stalled replication forks. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Herpes Simplex Virus 1 DNA replication and its role in recombination and transcription

    Författare :Ka-Wei Tang; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Herpes Simplex Virus 1; DNA replication; DNA recombination; Transcription;

    Sammanfattning : Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) is one of nine different herpesvirus infecting man. They are all capable of establishing a life-long latent state following the primary infection. HSV-1 as well as other herpesviruses may reactivate from the latent state and give rise to a productive infection with clinical symptoms or asymptomatic shedding. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Site-Specific Recombination : Integrases, Accessory Factors and DNA Targets of P2-like Coliphages

    Författare :Lina Sylwan; Elisabeth Haggård-Ljungquist; Margaret C. M. Smith; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Genetics; Genetik; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Sammanfattning : The temperate coliphage P2 and its family members integrate their genomes into the host Escherichia coli chromosome by a site-specific recombination mechanism to form lysogeny. Integration takes place between the complex phage attP site and the simple bacterial attB site and is catalyzed by the phage encoded integrase (Int). LÄS MER
