      Seredkina, Natalya; Rekvik, Ole Petter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      An acquired loss of renal DNaseI has recently been shown to promote transformation of mild mesangial lupus nephritis into membrano-proliferative end-stage organ disease. In this study, we analyzed expression profiles of DNaseI in other organs of lupus-prone (NZBxNZW)F1 mice during disease progression to determine if silencing of the renal DNaseI gene is an organ specific feature or if loss of ...
    • Acquisition of foreign DNA by natural transformation in Acinetobacter baylyi: quantitative estimates and molecular characterization of the introgression process 

      Willumsen, Sigrid Serine (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2008-05-20)
      Very little is known about introgression in bacteria. Introgression is the process where the genes of one species infiltrate the gene pool of another organism by subsequent backcross transformations of a hybrid with one of its parents. After the initial acquisition of foreign DNA, DNA from the newly made transformants is used as donor DNA in backcross transformations with the recipient. DNA is ...
