  1. 1. Functional collaboration between HLH transcription factors in B cell development

    Författare :Ramiro Gisler; Stamcellscentrum (SCC); []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; E47; Early B cell Factor EBF ; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; HLH proteins; transcription factors; gene expression; B cell development; transcription regulation;

    Sammanfattning : The cells in B cell development can be divided into several subgroups or fractions, e.g. early-pro-B-, pro-B, large-pre-B-, small-pre-B-, immature and mature B cells, where the stages reflect the maturity degree of the cells. LÄS MER

  2. 2. From Single Gene to Whole Genome Studies of Human Transcription Regulation

    Författare :Alvaro Rada-Iglesias; Claes Wadelius; Henk Stunnenberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Genetics; transcription; ChIP-chip; genome-wide; transcription factors; in vivo; Genetik;

    Sammanfattning : Transcriptional regulation largely determines which proteins and the protein levels that are found in a cell, and this is crucial in development, differentiation and responses to environmental stimuli. The major effectors of transcriptional regulation are a group of proteins known as transcription factors, which importance is supported by their frequent involvement in mendelian and complex diseases.

  3. 3. Maf transcription factors in beta cell function

    Författare :Elvira Ganic; Stamcellscentrum (SCC); []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Beta cell; MafA; type 2 diabetes; insulin secretion; transcription; monoamine oxidase; MaoA; MaoB; nicotinic receptor subunits; nAChRs;

    Sammanfattning : Diabetes mellitus is metabolic disorder caused by a defect or lack of beta cell-produced insulin that controls blood glucose homeostasis. In addition to glucose, insulin secretion is regulated by the autonomic nervous system (ANS); the neurotransmitter acetylcholine as well as monoamines, such as dopamine, serotonin, melatonin and norepinephrine.

  4. 4. Genetic and Genomic Analysis of Transcriptional Regulation in Human Cells

    Författare :Mehdi Motallebipour; Claes Wadelius; Gunnar Westin; Dirk Schübeler; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Transcription; ChIP-chip; ChIP-seq; genome-wide; transcription factors; microsatellite; epigenetic; Medical genetics; Medicinsk genetik;

    Sammanfattning : There are around 20.000 genes in the human genome all of which could potentially be expressed. However, it is obvious that not all of them can be active at the same time. Thus, there is a need for coordination achieved through the regulation of transcription. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Inflammatory transcription factors in atherosclerosis

    Författare :Wolfgang Dichtl; Lund Medicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Sammanfattning : Transcription factors such as nuclear factor-kB (NF-kB), activator protein-1 (AP-1) and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) may play important roles in atherogenesis, by regulating chronic subclinical vascular inflammation. In the first study, we showed that VLDL activates the proinflammatory transcription factor NF-kB in endothelial cells both in vitro and in vivo. LÄS MER
