Sammanfattning : The Gram-positive human pathogen Listeria monocytogenes uses a wide range of virulence factors for its pathogenesis. The majority of its virulence genes are encoded on a 9-kb pathogenicity island and are controlled by the transcriptional activator PrfA. LÄS MER
2. Non-coding RNAs in beta cell insulin secretion - emerging players in Type 2 Diabetes pathogenesis
Sammanfattning : Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a complex polygenic disease influenced by both environmental and genetic factors resulting in impaired insulin release from pancreatic beta cells and insulin resistance in target tissues. The incidence of T2D is escalating and it is projected that over 640 million people will be affected by 2040. LÄS MER
3. Ancient roles of non-coding RNAs in eukaryotic evolution : contributions from social amoebae and other protists
Sammanfattning : RNAs not coding for proteins, non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) have many important roles in all kingdoms of life. Especially in eukaryotes, the regulatory functions of ncRNAs have been suggested as a major force in the evolution of complex traits. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) have emerged as highly diverse and powerful key players in the cell, the range of capabilities spanning from catalyzing essential processes in all living organisms, e.g. protein synthesis, to being highly specific regulators of gene expression. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The human genome sequencing projects revealed that the human genome contains over 3 billion DNA base pairs, but only 20,000 25,000 protein-coding genes. In fact, only about 1.2% of the genome codes for proteins. LÄS MER
