  1. 1. Evolution of Vertebrate Endocrine and Neuronal Gene Families Focus on Pituitary and Retina

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Daniel Ocampo Daza; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; phylogenetics; evolution; molecular evolution; gene family evolution; genome duplication; gene duplication; oxytocin receptor; vasopressin receptor; visual opsin; transducin; growth hormone; prolactin; somatolactin; growth hormone receptor; prolactin receptor; somatostatin receptor; SSTR; IGFBP; evolution; molekylär evolution; fylogeni;

    Abstract : The duplication of genes followed by selection is perhaps the most prominent way in which molecular biological systems gain multiplicity, diversity and functional complexity in evolution. Whole genome duplications (WGDs) therefore have the potential of generating an extraordinary amount of evolutionary innovation. READ MORE

  2. 2. The growth hormone receptor and growth hormone sensitivity in man

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Ruth Wickelgren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; GH sensitivity; GH receptor; quantitative RT-PCR; IGF-I; skeletal muscle; adipose tissue; tissue-specific; promoter; 5´-untranslated region; psoriasis; epidermis;

    Abstract : It is well established that the response to endogenous and exogenous growth hormone (GH) varies between individuals. For example, conditions with increased catabolic rate, such as trauma, sepsis and surgery, are believed to be associated with acquired GH insensitivity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Receptors for growth hormone and prolactin. Regulation and activation

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Gunnel Hellgren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Growth hormone; GH receptor; Janus kinase; GH sensitivity; 5 -untranslated region; prolactin; prolactin receptor adipose tissue; liver; skeletal muscle; epidermal growth factor receptor; tyrosine kinase; kinase activity;

    Abstract : Cytokine receptor activation is dependent on ligand-induced receptor dimerization or oligomerization and subsequent activation of several intracellular proteins. Activation of Janus kinases (Jaks) is probably the first intracellular event that occurs after receptor dimerization. READ MORE

  4. 4. Insulin-like Growth Factor-I (IGF-I) and Interleukin-6 (IL-6) regulate body fat

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Kristina Wallenius; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obesity; insulin-like growth factor I IGF-I ; interleukin-6 IL-6 ; growth hormone GH ; GH releasing factor GHRF ; GH secretagogue GHS ; receptor; leptin; insulin; glucose; intracerebroventricular ICV ; dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry DXA ; indirect calorimetry.;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to investigate the role of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) in the regulation of metabolism and body fat mass. Circulating IGF-I is mainly liver derived, while a large part of circulating IL-6 is produced by adipose tissue. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Kroppens viktigaste hormon för längdtillväxt har följdriktigt kallats tillväxthormon (GH efter engelskans growth hormone). GH produceras i hypofysen som är en liten körtel belägen på hjärnans undersida, och utsöndras härifrån till blodbanan och når på så sätt kroppens olika organ, vävnader och celler. READ MORE
