  1. 1. Interplay between Transcription and Homologous Recombination in the Presence of DNA Damage

    Författare :Ivaylo Stoimenov; Thomas Helleday; Niklas Schultz; Natalia Issaeva; Thierry Nouspikel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; homologous recombination; transcription; DRB; UVC; 6-thioguanine; mammalian cells; BRCA1; BRCA2; PARP inhibitors; XP-V; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; molekylärgenetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Sammanfattning : The biochemical processes of DNA repair, replication and recombination compete for the same substrate, the DNA molecule. This competition is natural, as each process requires the same template. In order to resolve possible conflicts between these processes, when they take place on a particular stretch of DNA, certain crosstalk is expected. LÄS MER

  2. 2. MHC polymorphism and host-pathogen interactions: The case of Borrelia in its reservoir host, the bank vole Myodes glareolus

    Författare :Kristin Scherman; MEMEG; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Host-pathogen interaction; Negative frequency dependent selection; Myodes glareolus; Borrelia;

    Sammanfattning : The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class IIB genes exhibit extensive allelic polymorphism, most likely maintained by pathogen-mediated balancing selection (PMBS). PMBS may operate in the form of heterozygote advantage (HA), and/or through the interaction of pathogens and specific MHC alleles via fluctuating selection (FS) or negative frequency-dependent selection (NFDS).

  3. 3. The importance of major histocompatibility complex class II genes for the development of autoimmune inflammation

    Författare :Ulrica Brunsberg; Immunologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transplantation; serology; Immunology; Mhc polymorphism arthritis evolution; Immunologi; serologi;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis the role of major histocompatibility complex (Mhc) class II molecules in development of autoimmune disease such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), was studied. By combining an experimental model for RA, collagen type II induced arthritis (CIA), with molecular biology methods the importance of polymorphism in Mhc class II genes for disease development was investigated.

  4. 4. Polyneuropathy associated with monoclonal gammopathy : A clinical, neurophysiological and immunological study

    Författare :Magnus Vrethem; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is based upon clinical, neurophysiological, and immunological studies of polyneuropathy (symmetrical impairment of sensory and motor nerve function) in patients with monoclonal gammopathies, that is, patients characterized by proliferation of a plasma-cell clone secreting homogeneous immWloglobulins (M-component), which in some patients has serum antibody reactivity against peripheral nerve myelin.The prevalence of clinical polyneuropathy in patients with monoclonal gammopathy (n=3) was 36%, and the prevalence of all forms of polyneuropathy including patients with neurophysiological signs only andpatients with probable polyneuropathy (signs but no symptoms) was 58%.

  5. 5. Gene expression profiling in autoimmune diseases : a story of ups and downs

    Författare :Miranda Houtman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Autoimmune diseases are believed to arise from a combination of genetic and environmental factors that affect normal function of immune cells. In this thesis, we studied the functional role of genetic variants, in peripheral blood cells, that relate to rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and myositis by gene expression profiling. LÄS MER
