Structure in stress management : Keratins in intestinal stress protection
(Åbo Akademi University, 2016-12-16)
Intermediate filaments (IFs), a major constituent of the cellular cytoskeleton, contribute mainly to the mechanical stability of the cell. Simple epithelial keratins (SEKs) are IF proteins expressed in the single-layered ...
Product lifecycle management

Nanoclustering augmentation : a novel mechanism of Ras activation in cancer
(Åbo Akademi University, 2016-02-12)
Proteins of the Ras family are central regulators of crucial cellular processes, such as proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. Their importance is emphasized in cancer, in which the isoforms H-ras, N-ras and K-ras ...
Moving lipids : ceramides, glycosphingolipids and the glycolipid transfer protein
(Åbo Akademi University, 2016-05-20)
Lipid movement in cells occurs by a variety of methods. Lipids diffuse freely along the lateral plane of a membrane and can translocate between the lipid leaflets, either spontaneously or with the help of enzymes. Lipid ...
Phosphorylation as a mediator of protein function in cell migration, differentiation, and death : vimentin, AATF, and Par-4 in the spotlight
(Åbo Akademi University, 2016-11-11)
Protein phosphorylation is a major regulator of cellular signaling. It functions when a kinase joins a phosphate group to a protein, or when a phosphatase strips off a phosphate group from serine, threonine, or tyrosine ...
The role of keratin intermediate filaments in the colon epithelial cells
(Åbo Akademi University, 2016-02-18)
Keratins (K) are cytoskeletal proteins mainly expressed in the epithelium and constitute the largest subgroup of intermediate filaments (IFs). Simple epithelial keratins (SEKs) K7-K8 and K18-K20 are the major IF elements ...
Models to study intermediate filament dynamics and functions
(Åbo Akademi University, 2016-01-08)
Intermediate filaments are part of the cytoskeleton and nucleoskeleton; they provide cells with structure and have important roles in cell signalling. The IFs are a large protein family with more than 70 members; each ...
Efficient and low-cost software defined radio on commodity hardware
(Turku Centre for Computer Science, 2016-11-11)
As general purpose processors become faster, many signal processing functions that used to require special purpose hardware, are now feasible to perform in software. In wireless communications, this means we move towards ...
Examining human-centered design practice in the mobile apps era
(Turku Centre for Computer Science, 2016-06-10)
Human-Centered Design (HCD) is a well-recognized approach to the design of interactive computing systems that supports everyday and professional lives of people. To that end, the HCD approach put central emphasis on the ...
Refinement of biomodels using Petri nets
(Turku Centre for Computer Science, 2016-10-20)
Systems Biology is the multidisciplinary field concerned with the research of large, complex biological systems from a holistic perspective. The end goal is to understand how such systems function as a whole rather than ...
