The role of Mitf on cell cycle regulation in melanocytes
Written by
Hilmar Örn Gunnlaugsson Nielsen 1993-

Melanoma is the most lethal form of skin cancer and is most commonly caused by UV induced mutagenesis. MITF is considered the master regulator of melanocytes and has been termed a lineage survival oncogene in melanoma. As such, MITF has been extensively studied in melanoma and has been suggested ...

Targeted temperature management following cardiac arrest. A systematic review
Written by
Hrefna Björk Jónsdóttir 1993-

Targeted temperature management is a treatment used following cardiac arrest. Studies are contradictory as to which core temperature should be targeted. The European Resuscitation Council (ERC) recommends that patients be cooled to 32°C – 36°C. Targeted temperature management lowers the metabolic... (1,947 characters more)

Serial dependence may bias current perception towards or away from previous visual input. A relative consensus seems to be about attractive biases arising at a post-perceptual decisional stage and repulsive biases happening at low-level perceptual stage. Attention affects serial dependence, non-a... (819 characters more)

The effect of N-terminal mutations on the thermostability of VPR, a cold active subtilisin-like serine protease
Written by
Árni Thorlacius 1996-

This research project is a part of a larger project aimed at determining the structural basis for temperature adaptations in proteins by studying two subtilisin-like serine proteases that are structurally homologous: A C-terminal truncated form of the cold-active VPR (VPR∆C), from a psychrophilic...
