  1. 1. Regulation of Fibroblast Activity by Keratinocytes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Daniel Nowinski; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : Medical and Health Sciences Clinical Medicine Surgery; Medicin och hälsovetenskap Klinisk medicin Kirurgi; Surgery; conective tissue growth factor; interleukin-1; fibroblast; keratinocyte; wound healing; burns; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi;

    Abstract : In the healing of cutaneous wounds, paracrine communication between keratinocytes and fibroblasts regulates cell differentiation, proliferation and synthesis of extracellular matrix. Deficient epidermal coverage, as seen in burn-wounds, frequently results in hypertrophic scars. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fibroblast growth factor-induced signal transduction

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Peter Klint; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : Medical and Health Sciences Medical Biotechnology Medical Biotechnology with a focus on Cell Biology including Stem Cell Biology ; Molecular Biology; Microbiology; Biochemistry or Biopharmacy ; Medicin och hälsovetenskap Medicinsk bioteknologi Medicinsk bioteknologi med inriktning mot cellbiologi inklusive stamcellsbiologi ; molekylärbiologi; mikrobiologi; biokemi eller biofarmaci ; Biochemistry; Biokemi; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology;

    Abstract : Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) evoke cellular responses by binding to FGF receptors (FGFRs). FGFRs are cell surface expressed membrane-spanning receptors with intrinsic stimulatable tyrosine kinase activity. This thesis describes the cell proliferation or differentiation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor-1 Function in Vasculo- and Angiogenesis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Peetra Magnusson; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : Medical and Health Sciences Basic Medicine Cell and Molecular Biology; Medicin och hälsovetenskap Medicinska grundvetenskaper Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Pathology; FGF; FGFR-1; VEGFR-2; PDGFR-β; endothelial cells; embryonic stem cell; angiogenesis; hematopoiesis; Patologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Pathology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Patologi;

    Abstract : During development of the mammalian embryo, spatial and temporal expression of fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) and their cognate receptors are vital in the regulation of a number of patterning processes. Inappropriate or decreased expression leads to severe malformations and even embryonic death. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fibroblast growth factor-8 regulation of breast cancer cell growth

    University dissertation from Dept of Laboratory Medicine, Div of Tumour Biology, Lund University, Sweden

    Author : Emeli Nilsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN; MEDICINE;

    Abstract : Expression of fibroblast growth factor-8 (FGF-8) is increased in a large number of breast cancers. In in vitro and in vivo breast cancer models FGF-8 promotes growth, invasion and angiogenesis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Search for Biomarkers in ALS and Parkinson's Disease : Positron Emission Tomography and Cerebrospinal Fluid Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anders Johansson; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]

    Abstract : New biomarkers are needed to improve knowledge about pathophysiology, in order to provide earlier correct diagnosis and to follow disease progression of the neurodegenerative diseases amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson's disease (PD). The aim of this thesis was to find new biomarkers for these diseases. READ MORE
