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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eyman Shebani; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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).

  2. 2. The study of sensory cilia development in caenorhabditis elegans

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet

    Author : Evgeni Efimenko; Södertörns högskola.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : 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

  3. 3. The role of progesterone in the regulation of ciliary activity in the fallopian tube

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet

    Author : Magdalena Nutu; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN; MEDICINE; progesterone; progesterone receptor; non-genomic progesterone receptor; ciliated cells; fallopian tube; gamete transport; ciliary activity; ciliary beat frequency; reproduction; fertility;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate the distribution and regulation of membrane progesterone receptors (mPRs) that may be involved in regulating ciliary activity in the fallopian tube. The fallopian tube serves to transport the egg and spermatozoa to achieve fertilization. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mechanisms of sensory neuron diversification during development and in the adult Drosophila : How to make a difference

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Liza Alkhori; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The nervous system contains a vast number of neurons and displays a great diversity in cell types and classes. Even though this has been known for a long time, the exact mechanism of cell specification is still poorly understood. READ MORE

  5. 5. Functional genomics and proteomics analysis of cDNA and encoded proteins

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Bioteknologi

    Author : Magnus Larsson; KTH.; [1999]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : With the identification of all genes in the human genomewithin reach, there is a natural shift in focus from geneidentification to gene characterization. Functionalcharacterization of the 60,000 - 100,000 genes expected to befound in the human genome will prove an immense challenge forthe scientific community. READ MORE
