  1. 1. Role of androgen receptor signaling in the activation and differentiation of plasmacytoid dendritic cells

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för biologi och miljövetenskap

    Author : Faiza Tahsin Rashid; [2023-06-27]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Androgens are steroid hormones essential for the development and maintenance of male reproductive organs and secondary sexual characteristics. Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) are immune cells that act as the first line of defense against viral infections. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of osmo- and appetite regulation during transfer of smolt from freshwater to increasing salinities

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för biologi och miljövetenskap

    Author : Jonna Hellesten; [2023-01-26]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) is common in Scandinavian aquaculture and must be transferred from freshwater to seawater to grow properly. Despite being assessed as ready smolts, meaning they have gone through the physiological changes to prepare for SW transfer, the transfer result in a mortality rate of around 13-19%, and significant appetite- and growth reductions.

  3. 3. The effect of TRAP150 on HPV16 E1 gene regulation

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för medicinsk biokemi och mikrobiologi

    Author : Emma Svanberg Frisinger; [2023]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Human papilloma virus (HPV) is a small DNA virus that is known as the causative agent in cervical cancer. The virus is found worldwide and causes more than 300 000 deaths yearly. Although there are many types of HPV, HPV16 is found in 99 % of cervical cancer cases. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluation and implementation of quality control parameters for genome-wide DNA methylome sequencing

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Sara Ekberg; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Epigenomics is the study of modifications to the genetic material without changes to the DNA sequence, one such modification is methylation of nucleotides. DNA methylation is associated with gene regulation and is studied in a variety of fields such as cancer and ageing. READ MORE

  5. 5. Actin filaments as an indicator of impaired neuronal differentiation mediated by disruption of the retinoic acid signalling pathway

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Hanin Salloum; [2022]
    Keywords : Retinoic acid; actin; cytoskeleton; neural progenitor C17.2 cells; neuron; Coronin 1C; Cdc42 Cdc42 effector protein 4 gene ; Fn1 Fibronectin ; Wnt pathway.;

    Abstract : Retinoic acid (RA) is a well-known neurodevelopmental signaling molecule. It is reported to induce effects on neurite formation in differentiating neurons and to interfere with the actin cytoskeleton. Therefore, this project aimed to investigate the mechanisms behind effects of RA on the actin cytoskeleton of developing neurons using the C17. READ MORE
