  • Ubiquitin, SUMO and PAR : deciphering recruitment signals at DNA damage sites 

    Pfeiffer, Annika (Inst för cell- och molekylärbiologi / Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology, 2018-05-25)
    Protecting genome integrity is a vital task that is constantly challenged by various genotoxic stresses. Among different types of DNA damage, double-strand breaks (DSBs) constitute a particular threat since they result ...
  • Let's talk about SOX : diverse key players in the transcriptional regulation of neural stem cells 

    Klum, Susanne (Inst för cell- och molekylärbiologi / Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology, 2018-05-25)
    The development of the central nervous system relies on neural stem cells. How these stem cells either maintain their identity as self-renewing progenitors or differentiate into cells of the neuronal or glial lineage are ...
  • SOX in development and disease 

    Kurtsdotter, Idha (Inst för cell- och molekylärbiologi / Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology, 2018-04-26)
    As stem cells are needed not only to build our bodies during development, but also to maintain tissue function during adulthood, it is of great importance to the organism to maintain their integrity. However, stem cells ...
  • Dopamine : a versatile player in development, regeneration and disease 

    Pinheiro, Tiago (Inst för cell- och molekylärbiologi / Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology, 2018-03-06)
    The dopamine neurotransmitter is present in all multicellular organisms. In the brain, the dopaminergic system orchestrates reward-motivation pathways and is involved in the control of voluntary movements and endocrine ...
  • Characterisation of newt neural stem cells during development and regeneration 

    Liyakath Ali, Shahul Hameed (Inst för cell- och molekylärbiologi / Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology, 2018-02-15)
    The adult newt brain has a unique potential to regenerate neurons after injury. Ependymoglial cells that line the ventricular system of the newt brain are critical for neuronal regeneration, since they reenter the cell ...
  • Structural and functional basis of mitochondrial tRNA processing 

    Sridhara, Sagar (Inst för cell- och molekylärbiologi / Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology, 2017-11-28)
    The mammalian mitochondria are subcellular organelles, generating energy in the cell by the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) via oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS). The maintenance of proper mitochondrial (mt) ...
  • Cell cycle regulation and DNA damage response : a record of polo-like kinase 1 activity 

    Hukasova, Elvira (Inst för cell- och molekylärbiologi / Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology, 2017-11-02)
    Division and cell proliferation is an essence of life. A human cell has in its core a very simple yet a very complex machinery to coordinate cell cycle activities and events. A somatic human cell has as a base four ...
  • Transcriptional regulation of development in time and space 

    Hagey, Daniel W. (Inst för cell- och molekylärbiologi / Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology, 2017-10-13)
    Human development requires the generation of trillions of cells with myriad functions from a single cell. This requires that restriction of stem cell fate competence and proliferation are precisely temporally and spatially ...
  • Astrocytes : a reservoir for new neurons 

    Magnusson, Jens (Inst för cell- och molekylärbiologi / Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology, 2017-09-08)
