    Keywords : ovarian; cancer; monoclonal; antibodies; biomarkers; CARM1; PARPi; EZH2i;

    Abstract : Ovarian cancer is the most lethal of all gynaecological cancers and it is often diagnosedat an advanced stage due to diffuse and only mild symptoms at early stages.Early detection is crucial to increase survival but high-grade serous ovarian cancer(HGSOC) often presents non-specific symptoms, such as loss of appetite, bloating ofabdomen and tiredness.

    Keywords : ultrasound optical tomography; Monte Carlo light simulation; image reconstruction; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world today and early detection is crucial to minimize the mortality. ”Ultrasound optical tomography” (UOT) is a method under development for deep tissue imaging. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effects of phosphorylation on the ADP-ribosylation activity of PARP16

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Virginia Martín Cristóbal; [2023]
    Keywords : ADP-ribosylation; Kinases; PARP16; Phosphorylation; UPR biochemistry; Biochemistry; Chemistry;

    Abstract : PARP16/ARTD15 is an intracellular mono-ADP-ribosyltransferase that catalyzes auto- and heteromodification by transfer of a single ADP-ribose moiety. It belongs to the ADP-ribosyltransferase (ART) superfamily. READ MORE

  4. 4. Assessment and evaluation of heterogeneity in data from immune infiltration spatial niches in lung cancer

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Mahta Keivani Najafabadi; [2023]
    Keywords : Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : The protein biomarker expressions in three types of sampled immune INFILTration spatial niches in lung cancer tissue were measured using the new technology Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP). The three types of immune INFILTration that were observed in lung tumors were STROMA identified as immune cells separate from tumor cells, Tertiary lymphoid structures (TLS) identified as dense structures of organized immune cells and finally Infiltraterate where immune cells dispersed among and in direct contact with tumor cells (INFILT).

  5. 5. CRISPR Screen to Identify Genes Regulating Melanoma Cell Invasiveness

    University essay from KTH/Proteinvetenskap

    Author : Emma Kroon; [2023]
    Keywords : CRISPR-Cas9; gene knockout; viral packaging; transduction; invasionstest; CRISPR-Cas9; genknockout; viruspackning; transduction; invasion assay;

    Abstract : Maligna cancerceller har förmågan att sprida sig okontrollerat i kroppen och metastasera till avlägsna organ. Kritiskt i metastaserings processen är cancercellers förmåga att invadera närliggande vävnader innan de sprider sig vidare ut i kroppen. READ MORE
