  1. 1. Cardiac lipid storage and metabolism following myocardial ischemia

    Author : Christina Drevinge; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lipid accumulation; Myocardial Ischemia; Lipid droplets; Perilipin2; Perilipin5;

    Abstract : Myocardial ischemia is associated with cellular- and metabolic adjustments within the heart, including accumulation of lipids. Myocardial lipids are stored in cytosolic droplets, consisting of a core of neutral lipids surrounded by a complex surface containing proteins, such as perilipins. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mechanisms for and consequences of cellular lipid accumulation - Role of the Very Low Density Lipoprotein (VLDL) receptor

    Author : Jeanna Perman; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; very low density lipoprotein receptor; lipid accumulation;

    Abstract : Lipid accumulation in non adipose tissue is associated with various cases of tissue dysfunction and tissue failure. Reduced availability of oxygen is known to cause intracellular lipid accumulation in cardiomyocytes as well as in hearts. READ MORE

  3. 3. The assembly of cytosolic lipid droplets and its effect on insulin sensitivity

    Author : Pontus Boström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetes; lipid metabolism; insulin resistance; lipid droplets; ADFP; SNARE;

    Abstract : Accumulation of neutral lipids, in particular triglycerides, in non-adipocytes is highly related to the development of insulin resistance and its consequences, type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. The accumulation of triglycerides occurs in so-called lipid droplets in the cytosol. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fibromodulin and Dystrophin in Atherosclerosis: Novel roles for extracellular matrix in plaque development

    University dissertation from Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Author : Annelie Shami; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atherosclerosis; fibromodulin; dystrophin; carotid artery; lipid accumulation; restenosis; plaque;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Fibromodulin och dystrofin i ateroskleros; en populärvetenskaplig sammanfattning VAD ÄR ATEROSKLEROS? Ateroskleros – det man tidigare kallade för åderförkalkning – är grundorsaken till hjärtinfarkt, stroke och kärlkramp. Ett aterosklerosplack är en förträngning i ett blodkärl, ofta vid en förgrening där blodflödet är turbulent. READ MORE

  5. 5. Escape flight in butterflies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

    Author : Maria Almbro; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Flight; Lepidoptera; gamete load; lipid accumulation; predation risk; hibernation; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; Zoology; zoologi;

    Abstract : Flight is considered to be the overarching reason for the enormous diversity and world-wide abundance of insects. Not only does flight enable great distances to be covered and new areas to be colonised, flying has also evolved to be important in most adult life-history characteristics from reproduction to anti-predator strategies.
