  1. 1. Directing Angiogenesis Cellular Responses to Gradients in vitro

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Irmeli Barkefors; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Angiogenesis; Endothelial cell; Cell migration; Chemotaxis; Gradients; Microfluidics; VEGFA; VEGFR2; Exocyst; Exocytosis; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Medicinsk biokemi; Medical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Blood vessels are essential for the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to tissues, as well as for the removal of waste products. Patients with tumors, wounds or diabetes all have active angiogenesis, formation and remodeling of blood vessels, a process that is initiated and manipulated by gradients of secreted signaling proteins.

  2. 2. Regulation of Angiogenesis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Helena Larsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; angiogenesis; anti-angiogenesis; endostatin; latent antithrombin; prelatent antithrombin; Crk; Genetik; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Clinical genetics; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones. New blood vessel formation is fundamental in processes such as reproduction, embryonic development and wound healing. Growth of neoplasms is accompanied by increased angiogenesis. This thesis describes cellular and molecular mechanisms of importance for angiogenesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Human Endometrial Angiogenesis An Immunohistochemical Study of the Endometrial Expression of Angiogenic Growth Factors and Their Corresponding Receptors

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Björn Möller; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; Human endometrium; angiogenesis; menstrual cycle; endothelial cells; immunohistochemistry; western blot; VEGF; VEGFR; FGF-2; FGFR; EGF; EGFR; levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : The human endometrium undergoes dramatic changes in morphology and function during the menstrual cycle. Recurrent angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels) is of utmost importance for oxygen supply and nourishment of the rapidly growing endometrial tissue. READ MORE

  4. 4. Leukocytes in Angiogenesis Learning from Transplanted Pancreatic Islets

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gustaf Christoffersson; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; angiogenesis; pancreatic islet transplantation; islets of Langerhans; diabetes mellitus; leukocytes; neutrophils; macrophages; pericytes; MMP-9; VEGF-A; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels, is a complex process involving several cell types and molecular signals. Excessive vascular growth is a problem in tumors, and insufficient vascularization hampers the function of transplanted insulin-producing pancreatic islets. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular Regulation of Angiogenesis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sofie Mellberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; endothelial morphogenesis; VEGFR-2; protein tyrosine phosphatase; VE-PTP; PTPRB; endocan; ESM-1; angiogenesis; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Pathology Molecular medicine; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Patologi Molekylär medicin;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis, de novo formation of blood vessels from the pre-existing vasculature, is crucial in embryo development, and in processes in the adult such as wound healing and ovulation. Angiogenesis is also involved in pathological conditions such as cancer and chronic inflammatory diseases, which are propagated by dysregulated, excess angiogenesis. READ MORE
