Sammanfattning : The main aim of this thesis was to study the role of the indirect actions of γ-rays and α-particles on the complexity of primary DNA damages and the repair fidelity of major DNA repair pathways: non-homologous end joining (NHEJ), homologous recombination repair (HRR) and base excision repair (BER). The complexity of radiation-induced damages increases and the proximity between damages decreases with increasing LET due to formation of ionization clusters along the particle track. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Translation initiation factor IF1 is a small, essential and ubiquitous protein factor encoded by a single infA gene in bacteria. Although several important functions have been attributed to IF1, the precise reason for its indispensability is yet to be defined. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The scope of these studies has been to investigate the site-specific recombination systems of P2-like coliphages, both in an evolutionary perspective by a comparative analysis of related phages as well as in a functional perspective. Surveys of P2-like phages in Escherichia coli isolated from nature reveal the existence of seven discrete immunity classes and three integration sites, one of them previously unknown. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Lipids are a broad class of molecules that, besides being a major form of energy storage and components of cell membranes, act as bioactive signalling molecules. N-acyl taurines are structurally related to endocannabinoids that are known to exert antiproliferative actions in a variety of cancer cells. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : During translation termination the stop codons UAA and UAG are recognised by release factor one (RF1). RF1 binds to the ribosome and mediates the hydrolysis of the nascent peptide from the peptidyl-tRNA. In this process, RF1 interacts directly or indirectly with several ribosomal proteins (r-proteins). LÄS MER
