  1. 1. Mammalian sperm flagella and cilia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Cell and Molecular Biology

    Author : Jikui Guan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : In mammals, both sperm flagella and cilia are axoneme-containing organelles. The sperm flagella are major parts of the spermatozoa that are male gametes produced in the testis from progenitor spermatogonia through a process called spermatogenesis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ultrastructural Studies of the Airway Epithelium in Airway Diseases

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eyman Shebani; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Morphology; asthma; cilia; corticosteroids; cytokines; desmosomes; Gaucher’s disease; montelukast; primary ciliary dyskinesia; transmission electron microscopy; Morfologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi;

    Abstract : Ultrastructural studies of airway epithelium in airway disease are important for diagnosis and understanding the underlying pathology which helps clinicians to improve the patients' treatment.Airway biopsies from a 5-month old boy with respiratory problems and gastro-oesophageal reflux were studied by transmission electron microscopy (TEM).

  3. 3. Studies of Mucociliary Activity and Blood Flow in the Upper Airways, with Special Reference to Endothelins and Nitric Oxide

    University dissertation from Dept. of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, University Hospital of Lund, S-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Thomas Runer; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1996]
    Keywords : substance P; Otorhinolaryngology; rabbit; nitric oxide; nasal mucosa; mucociliary clearance; methacholine; maxillary sinus; endothelins; human; cilia; blood flow; audiology; auditive system and speech; Otorinolaryngologi; audiologi; hörsel- och talorganen; MEDICIN; MEDICINE;

    Abstract : The aim with this thesis was to investigate effects of vasoactive mediators on mucociliary activity and blood flow in rabbit and human experimental models. Mucociliary activity in vivo and ciliary beat frequency (CBF) in vitro were measured with photoelectric techniques. Blood flow was measured with laser Doppler flowmetry. READ MORE

  4. 4. The study of sensory cilia development in Caenorhabditis elegans

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Biosciences and Nutrition

    Author : Evgeni Efimenko; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : p>Cilia and flagella are widespread eukaryotic subcellular components that are conserved from green algae to mammals. In different organisms they function in cell motility, movement of extracellular fluids and sensory reception. READ MORE

  5. 5. Nitric oxide in exhaled gas : studies on physiological regulation and measurements in infants and children

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Author : Andreas Artlich; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adrenaline; adrenoceptor; artificial ventilation; asthma; carbon dioxide; catecholamines; chemiluminescence; child; cilia; exhaled gas; focal adhesion complex; high frequency oscillatory ventilation; lung; mechanotransduction; newborn; nitric oxide; glucocorticosteroids; stretch;

    Abstract : Nitric oxide (NO) is found in the exhaled gas of humans, starting from birth, and is increased in adult patients with bronchial asthma. This study assessed whether the measurement of NO in exhaled gas is technically feasible in infants and children. READ MORE
