SH3 domain mediated virus-host cell interactions by the nonstructural protein 1 (NS1) of influenza A virus

Leena Ylösmäki

Src homology 3 (SH3) domains are small modular protein structures that recognize and bind to short proline-rich sequence motifs in their ligand proteins. Viral proteins may also harbor such binding motifs and thereby serve as SH3 ligands in order to regulate the host cell signaling to support virus growth and replication, and to modulate virulence. The aim of this study was to examine if...

Western diet and genetic predisposition as risk factors of colon cancer

Satu Valo

Lifestyle and diet have a major effect on the development of colorectal cancer (CRC). Dietary habits of Western populations in particular are recognized as a risk factor for CRC. However, the mechanisms that mediate the effects of Western-style diet (WD) on colorectal tumor development are largely unknown. CRC develops via multiple steps which involve genetic changes, such as mutations i...
