Sammanfattning : The p53 tumor suppressor gene is frequently mutated in human tumors. p53 induces cell cycle arrest and/or apoptosis in response to cellular stress, such as DNA damage, hypoxia and certain activated oncogenes like c-myc. The status of p53 in Burkitt's Iymphoma (BL) cell lines was investigated. The majority of BL lines expressed mutated p53 protein. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Soft tissue tumors (STT) constitute a heterogeneous group of tumors that arise in tissues of mesenchymal origin. They are currently classified according to morphology and resemblance to normal tissue into over 100 subtypes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a highly heterogeneous blood disease which is characterized by different mutations and chromosomal rearrangements. Nearly 60% of genetic alterations have been found in AML patients involve in signaling pathways including signaling of tyrosine kinase receptor FLT3. LÄS MER
4. Computational Methods for Calculation of Ligand-Receptor Binding Affinities Involving Protein and Nucleic Acid Complexes
Sammanfattning : The ability to accurately predict binding free energies from computer simulations is an invaluable resource in understanding biochemical processes and drug action. Several methods based on microscopic molecular dynamics simulations exist, and in this thesis the validation, application, and development of the linear interaction energy (LIE) method is presented.

Sammanfattning : The oncogene Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) is a Receptor Tyrosine Kinase (RTK) and was initially discovered as the fusion protein NPM (nucleophosmin)-ALK in a subset of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphomas (ALCL). Since then more fusion proteins have been identified in a variety of cancers. LÄS MER
