Functional characterisation of three human nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyltransferases
(The University of Bergen, 2008-08-25)
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, NAD, is an essential redox factor in many, primarily catabolic, hydrogen transfer reactions. While the redox reactions are not accompanied by a net loss of the pyridine nucleotides, ...
NatF Contributes to an Evolutionary Shift in Protein N-Terminal Acetylation and Is Important for Normal Chromosome Segregation
(Public Library of Science, 2011-07-07)
N-terminal acetylation (N-Ac) is a highly abundant eukaryotic protein modification. Proteomics revealed a significant increase in the occurrence of N-Ac from lower to higher eukaryotes, but evidence explaining the underlying ...
Functional studies of two wild type variants of HIV-1 Tat
(The University of Bergen, 2003)
The influence of CXCR4 on Maedi visna virus-induced syncytium formation
(The University of Bergen, 2001)
Maedi visna virus (MVV) is a retrovirus that is member of the Lentivirus genus. MVV infects sheep and goats and causes progressive pneumonia or paralysis, leading to death. Since the discovery of the receptor for Human ...
Maternal, paternal and temperature effects on otolith size of young herring (Clupea harengus L.) larvae: an experimental study
(The University of Bergen, 1997)
Analysis of transcription factor complexes and their associated chromatin interactions during erythropoiesis
(The University of Bergen, 2014-01-17)
Cis-regulatory elements can control gene transcription over large distances. Studying the association between cis-regulatory elements and the mechanism of gene regulation is important since the disruption in the transcriptional ...
Proteome changes in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) exposed to oil and produced water: discovery of biomarker candidates for environmental monitoring
(The University of Bergen, 2007-09-07)
Produced water is the most dominating source of continuous oil discharges to the sea offshore. It contains a wide range of compounds such as alkyl phenols, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), heavy metals, carboxylic acids ...
Sedation and slaughter of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar, L.) with carbon monoxide, and a possible regulatory role of neuroglobin
(The University of Bergen, 2012-10-05)
Until recently CO2 has been utilized as an anesthetic method before gill cutting of Norwegian Atlantic salmon farmed fish. From 1. July 2012 this is no longer permitted in Norway since it causes strong aversive reactions ...
Biochemical and virological analysis of the 18-residue C-terminal tail of HIV-1 integrase
(BioMed Central, 2009-10-19)
Background The 18 residue tail abutting the SH3 fold that comprises the heart of the C-terminal domain is the only part of HIV-1 integrase yet to be visualized by structural biology. To ascertain the role of the tail region ...
Conservation and divergence of chemical defense system in the tunicate Oikopleura dioica revealed by genome wide response to two xenobiotics
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2012-02-02)
Background Animals have developed extensive mechanisms of response to xenobiotic chemical attacks. Although recent genome surveys have suggested a broad conservation of the chemical defensome across metazoans, global ...
