  1. 1. Extraocular Muscles in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Anton Tjust; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ALS; EOM; Satellite cells; innervation; neuromuscular disease; neurodegenerative disease; Human Anatomy; anatomi;

    Abstract : Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is an incurable neurodegenerative disease of motor neurons characterized by muscle paralysis and death within 3-5 years of onset. However, due to unknown mechanisms, the extraocular muscles (EOMs) remain remarkably unaffected. READ MORE

  2. 2. Optical Measurements of Rolling Friction Coefficients

    University dissertation from Luleå

    Author : Yiling Li; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Experimentell mekanik; Experimental Mechanics;

    Abstract : This thesis presents an optical method to measure the rolling friction coefficientsfor balls rolling freely on a cylindrical surface. Two different models of a ball rollingfreely on a cylindrical surface are established, one is an analytical model and the otheris a numerical model derived from Lagrange equation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Human extraocular muscles molecular diversity of a unique muscle allotype

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Daniel Kjellgren; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ophtalmology; extraocular; muscle; myosin; protein c; laminin; serca; immunocytochemistry; human; Oftalmiatrik; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi; Ophtalmology; oftalmiatrik;

    Abstract : Introduction: The extraocular muscles (EOMs) are considered a separate class of skeletal muscle, allotype. Myosin is the major contractile protein in muscle. The myosin heavy chain (MyHC) isoforms are the best molecular markers of functional heterogeneity of muscle fibers. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Muscle Perspective on the Pathophysiology of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Differences between extraocular and limb muscles

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Vahid M. Harandi; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuromuscular junctions; Extraocular muscles; Skeletal muscle; Neurotrophic factor; Wnt; Motor neuron disease; Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; SOD1G93A mice; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Background: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a late-onset progressive neurodegenerative disorder. ALS has been traditionally believed to be primarily a motor neuron disease. READ MORE
