  1. 1. Human muscle spindles complex morphology and structural organisation

    Author : Jing-Xia Liu; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : human; muscle spindIe; intrafusal fiber; aging; biceps brachii; deep muscles of the neck; MyHC; mATPase; SERCA; Human Anatomy; anatomi; muscle spindle;

    Abstract : Muscle spindles are skeletal muscle mechanoreceptors that mediate the stretch reflex and provide axial and limb position information to the central nervous system. They have been proposed to play a major role in the pathophysiology of muscle pain. READ MORE

  2. 2. Satellite cells in human skeletal muscle molecular identification quantification and function

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Mona Lindström; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; satellite cell markers; NCAM; Pax7; MyoD; myogenin; DLK1 FA1; c-Met; human skeletal muscle; immunohistochemistry; muscle growth; muscle hypertrophy; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Skeletal muscle satellite cells located between the plasma membrane and the basal lamina of muscle fibres, could for many years, only be studied in situ by electron microscopy. The introduction of immunohistochemistry and the discovery of molecular markers of satellite cells then made them accessible for light microscopic studies and a wealth of information is today available.

  3. 3. Extra- and intrafusal muscle fibre type compositions of the human masseter at young age. In perspective of growth and functional maturation of the jaw-face motor system

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Catharina Österlund; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; jaw; limb; human; muscle; morphology; fibre type; myosin heavy chain; muscle spindle; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Morphology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Morfologi; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Muscles control body posture and movement by extrafusal and intrafusal (muscle spindle) fibres. The purpose of this thesis was to provide insight into the muscular basis for human jaw function at young age. READ MORE

  4. 4. The human Achilles tendon innervation and intratendinous production of nerve signal substances - of importance in understanding the processes of Achilles tendinosis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Dennis Bjur; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Achilles tendon; tendinosis; tendinopathy; nerve signal substances; hälsena; Achillessena; tendinos; tendinopati; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Orthopaedics; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Ortopedi; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Tendinopathies are painful tendon conditions of presumably multifactorial genesis. In tendinosis, as in Achilles tendinosis, there is apart from pain also morphological changes which are described as degenerative with no signs of inflammation. The exact mechanisms behind these conditions are still, to a large extent, unknown. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of chloride secretion in HT29 cells studied by X-ray microanalysis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Wei Zhang; Uppsala universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anatomy; epithelium; chloride channel; HT29 cells; ion transport; volume; X-ray microanalysis; G-protein coupled receptors; α2-adrenoceptors; purinoceptors; muscarinic receptors; Anatomi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Morphology Anatomy; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Morfologi Anatomi; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Several aspects of Cl- secretion in epithelial cells were investigated. Methods to prepare cultured cellsfor X-ray microanalysis, in order to study volume-regulating chloride transport were evaluated. READ MORE
