    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Slemhinnorna i näsan, bihålorna, nasofarynx (nässvalgrummet), örontrumpeten och främre delen av mellanörat, är beklädda med celler på vars yta det finns flimmerhår (cilier). De ciliebeklädda slemhinnorna är täckta av ett tunt slemskikt som transporteras av ciliernas rörelser. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Interplay between mitochondria, primary cilium, diabetes and its complications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Noah Moruzzi; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Diabetes is one of the major health problems of the 21st century. Dysfunction of the insulin secreting pancreatic β-cell together with insulin resistance is central to the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The cause of the disease and the underlying mechanisms linking hyperglycemia to diabetes complications are still unclear. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Magdalena Nutu; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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
