  1. 1. On the influence of dopamine-related genetic variation on dopamine-related disorders

    Author : Olle Bergman; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dopamine; neurodevelopment; amygdala; schizophrenia; Parkinson s disease; social anxiety disorder; ADHD; PITX3; LMX1A; LMX1B; BDNF; DAT; SNP; genes; genetics; BDNF;

    Abstract : Rationale: Dopamine synthesizing neurons are involved in a wide variety of functions. The most prominent dopamine pathways originate in the midbrain. The development, function and survival of these dopaminergic neurons are under the influence of numerous transcription and neurotrophic factors. READ MORE

  2. 2. The genetics of antibiotic production and the role of antibiotics in biological control of Erwinia amylovora by Erwinia herbicola

    University dissertation from Ann Arbor : Cornell University

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biological sciences; fire blight; pantocin; Plant pathology; Microbiology; Molecular biology; 0480:Plant pathology; 0307:Molecular biology; 0410:Microbiology;

    Abstract : Erwinia herbicola is an epiphyte of apple and pear with potential as a biocontrol agent of Erwinia amylovora, which causes fire blight. This research aimed to assess the relative role of antibiotics produced by E. herbicola, Eh318 as a mechanistic basis for biocontrol. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sami lifestyle and health epidemiological studies from northern Sweden

    University dissertation from the Dean of the Medical Faculty, Umeå university

    Author : Lena Maria Nilsson; Umeå universitet.; [2012]

    Abstract : Background: Adherence to recommendations for physical activity is low in patients with heart failure (HF). It is essential to explore to what extent and why patients with HF are physically active. READ MORE

  5. 5. Nuclear medicine methods in idiopathic Parkinsonism pre- and postsynaptic dopamine SPECT

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Susanna Jakobson Mo; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nuclear medicine; SPECT; 123I-FP-Cit; 123I-IBZM; dopamine; parkinsonism; Parkinson’s disease; multiple system atrophy; progressive supranuclear palsy; Radiology; radiologi;

    Abstract : Background: Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with dopamine transporter (DAT) and dopamine D2 receptor (D2R) ligands can visualise the integrity of the nigrostriatal dopamine system. Parkinson’s disease (PD) and the atypical parkinsonian diseases (APD), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and multiple system atrophy (MSA), have similar symptoms and dopamine depletion, but differ in pharmacological response and prognosis.
