    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Alla friska människor har 46 kromosomer, 23 av dessa härstammar från modern och 23 från fadern. Kromosomer är långa kedjor av nukleinsyror som innehåller den genetiska informationen (arvsanlagen) som behövs för att ett befruktat ägg skall kunna utvecklas till en individ bestående av miljontals celler med mycket specialiserade och avancerade uppgifter.

  2. 2. Investigating cell turnover in the healthy and diseased adult human brain

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology

    Author : Hagen B. Huttner; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : For decades it was thought that cells that lost in the human central nervous system because of ageing or disease – different from other cell tissues – cannot be replaced and that in humans all neurons are generated during prenatal development. However, over the last 20 years, it became obvious that there is a certain level of adult neurogenesis in most mammals that mainly occurs in the dentate gyrus and the subventricular zone. READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies of neuropeptides in pancreatic beta cell function with special emphasis on islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP)

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ella Karlsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; alpha cell; amylin; beta cell; chromogranin; growth; IAPP; insulin; islet amyloid polypeptide; leptin; NOD mice; pancreastatin; pancreatic islet; proliferation; Cellbiologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi; medicinsk cellbiologi; Medical Cell Biology;

    Abstract : The presence of protein amyloid in pancreas and its association to diabetes was first described 100 years ago in 1901, but was not identified as Islet Amyloid Polypeptide (IAPP) until 1986. The aim of the present work was to determine the role of the beta cell hormone, IAPP, in normal pancreatic islet physiology and during early disturbances of islet function. READ MORE

  4. 4. To be or not to be, unraveling molecular mechanisms for lineage decisions in developing blood cells

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Robert Månsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hematologi; extracellular fluids; Haematology; common lymphoid precursor CLP ; early B-cell factor 1 EBF1 ; B-cell; Stemcell; hematopoiesis; extracellulära vätskor; Immunology; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi;

    Abstract : All hematopoietic cells originate from hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) residing in the BM. The process of differentiation, through which HSCs generate progenitors and subsequently mature blood cells has been extensively studied but many of the regulatory mechanisms involved remains elusive.

  5. 5. Maf transcription factors in beta cell function

    University dissertation from Stem Cell Center, Lund University

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), 415 million people suffer from diabetes worldwide. Diabetes occurs when the pancreatic beta cells are no longer able to produce or properly use insulin. Insulin regulates blood glucose levels by enabling glucose uptake into cells, providing the body with energy. READ MORE
