    Sammanfattning : Understanding the mechanisms of complex polygenic diseases like type 2 diabetes (T2D) is as complex as their nature. Cellular processes involved in glucose homeostasis need high and reliable energy supply. Mitochondria are the major energy producers in mammalian cells. LÄS MER

  2. 2. DNA damage-induced cell death : The role of caspase-2

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Institute of Enviromental Medicine

    Författare :Helin Vakifahmetoglu; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Apoptosis; caspase-2; DNA damage; mitotic catastrophe; p53;

    Sammanfattning : Activation of a family of cysteine proteases, called caspases, is an important event during apoptosis. In comparison to other caspases, less is known about regulatory functions of caspase-2. Previous studies from our group established caspase-2 as an essential apical regulator of apoptosis triggered by DNA damage. LÄS MER
