  1. 1. Collagen-binding integrin ?2?1 activity in vivo and in vitro : Effects of platelet-derived growth factor-BB

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karina Åhlén; Uppsala universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Integrin ?2?1; PDGF-BB; fibroblast; interstitial fluid pressure; cytoskeletal interaction; phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase; [Ca2 ]i; Biokemi; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; Medical and Physiological Chemistry; medicinsk och fysiologisk kemi;

    Abstract : The expression of integrins by two cell clones from a rat colon carcinoma was investigated. Cloned cells that gave rise to regressive tumors, but not cells that gave rise to progressive, lethal, tumors, adhered to interstitial collagens through the integrin ?2?1, although both cell types expressed it.

  2. 2. Regulation of Fibroblast Activity by Keratinocytes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Daniel Nowinski; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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

  3. 3. Fibroblast growth factor-induced signal transduction

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Peter Klint; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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

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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Peetra Magnusson; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pathology; FGF; FGFR-1; VEGFR-2; PDGFR-?; 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

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

    University dissertation from Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Emeli Nilsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    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
