    Sammanfattning : Telomeres are protective structures at the end of our chromosomes, composed of multiple repeats of the DNA sequence TTAGGG. They are essential for maintaining chromosomal stability by preventing damage and degradation of the chromosome ends. LÄS MER

  2. 12. Effects of mutations in lymphoid malignancy and immunodeficiency disease

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Laboratory Medicine

    Författare :Abdulrahman M. Hamasy; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Mutations are responsible for causing various human diseases, including several types of cancer and immunodeficiency syndromes. They can either be involved directly in the pathogenesis of the disease or by influencing the treatment efficacy and cause failure of the patient’s response to a specific therapy by adapting the targeted cell to resist the treatment.

  4. 14. Computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Miriam Rodriguez; Uppsala universitet.; [1998]
