Sammanfattning : The focus of this thesis was to study cytogenetic and molecular genetic aberrations in lipomas. For this purpose, chromosome banding analysis, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), as well as high resolution single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)–arrays were used to identify recurrent chromosomal aberrations in lipomas.

Sammanfattning : The transforming growth factor beta (TGFβ) is a cytokine that regulates a plethora of cellular processes such as cell proliferation, differentiation, migration and apoptosis. TGFβ signals via serine/threonine kinase receptors and activates the Smads to regulate gene expression. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Cancer is a genetic disease caused by mutations and chromosome rearrangements affecting oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in particular. Molecular analyses of recurrent translocations in hematological disorders, as well as in certain solid tumor types, have shown that they frequently result in fusion oncogenes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Fusion genes are potent oncogenic drivers resulting from exchange of regulatory/coding sequences between two genes. They were originally identified in leukemias but are now recognized as key oncogenic events also in many solid tumors, including salivary gland tumors (SGTs). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Many previous studies in evolutionary genetics have been based on few model organisms that can be reared at ease in the laboratory. In contrast, genetic studies of non-model, natural populations are desirable as they provide a wider range of adaptive phenotypes throughout evolutionary timescales and allow a more realistic understanding of how natural selection drives adaptive evolution.
