    Abstract : The extracellular matrix is (ECM) is a network of large, structural proteins and polysaccharides, important for cellular behavior, tissue development and maintenance. Present thesis describes work exploring ECM as scaffolds for tissue engineering by manipulating cells cultured in vitro or by influencing ECM expression in vivo. READ MORE

  2. 2. About hyaluronan in the hypertrophic heart studies on coordinated regulation of extracellular matrix signalling

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Urban Hellman; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hyaluronan; hyaluronan synthases; gene expression; extracellular matrix; cardiac hypertrophy; rat wistar; male ; cardiomyocytes; growth factors; fibroblasts; microvesicles; exosomes; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Background. Myocardial hypertrophy is a risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Independent of underlying disease, the cardiac muscle strives in different ways to compensate for an increased workload. This remodelling of the heart includes changes in the extracellular matrix which will affect systolic and diastolic cardiac function. READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies on extracellular matrix proteins in vascular disease

    University dissertation from Åsa Ström, Section for Connective Tissue Biology, BMC, C12, 221 84 Lund

    Author : Åsa Ström; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Cardiovascular system; smooth muscle cells; osteopontin; extracellular matrix; atherosclerosis;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Det är känt sedan tidigare att komponenter från blodkärlets bindväv på olika sätt kan påverka sjukdomstillstånd som uppkommer i kärlväggen. En av dessa sjukdomar är ateroskleros (åderförkalkning), som genom sina följdsjukdomar (hjärtinfarkt, kärlkramp, stroke mm) utgör den vanligaste dödsorsaken i västvärlden. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structure and Interactions of the Extracellular Matrix Protein PRELP

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Bindväv är ett samlingsnamn för vävnader som ger form och struktur i olika organ i kroppen. I brosk och ben utgör bindväven hela eller stora delar av organet, medan i andra organ, t.ex. muskel, är bindväven endast en liten del. READ MORE

  5. 5. Proteins of the Inter-α-inhibitor Family Biosynthesis, Plasma Clearance and Interaction with Extracellular Matrix Components

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Aneta Kaczmarczyk; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; bikunin; inter-α-inhibitor; pre-α-inhibitor; intracellular processing; plasma clearance; extracellular matrix; binding; collagen; Biokemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi; Medical Biochemistry; medicinsk biokemi;

    Abstract : Bikunin, a chondroitin sulfate-containing protein of 25 kDa, has protease inhibitory activity and occurs in the plasma in free and complexed form. In inter-α-inhibitor (IαI) and pre-a-inhibitor (PαI) it is covalently linked through its chondroitin sulfate (CS) chain to two or one other polypeptide of about 80 kDa – heavy chains 1 and 2 (H1, H2) and heavy chain 3 (H3) – respectively.
