  1. 1. Androgen controlled regulatory systems in prostate cancer potential new therapeutic targets and prognostic markers

    University dissertation from Umeå : Medicinsk biovetenskap

    Author : Peter Hammarsten; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; prostate cancer; angiogenesis; human biopsy; androgen ablation; castration; prognostic marker; prognostic factor; growth control; VEGF; vascular endothelial growth factor; EGFR; epidermal growth factor receptor; pEGFR; phosphorylated EGFR; phosphorylated epidermal growth factor receptor; VETERINARY MEDICINE Pathology; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Patologi;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: Prostate cancer is by far the most common cancer among Swedish men. Some patients have an aggressive lethal disease, but the majority of affected men have long expected survival. Unfortunately, the diagnostic tools available are insufficient in predicting disease aggressiveness. Novel prognostic markers are therefore urgently needed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Receptors for growth hormone and prolactin. Regulation and activation

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Gunnel Hellgren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Growth hormone; GH receptor; Janus kinase; GH sensitivity; 5 -untranslated region; prolactin; prolactin receptor adipose tissue; liver; skeletal muscle; epidermal growth factor receptor; tyrosine kinase; kinase activity;

    Abstract : Cytokine receptor activation is dependent on ligand-induced receptor dimerization or oligomerization and subsequent activation of several intracellular proteins. Activation of Janus kinases (Jaks) is probably the first intracellular event that occurs after receptor dimerization. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ubiquitination and Receptor Endocytosis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kaisa Haglund; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; Ubiquitination; receptor tyrosine kinase; endocytosis; Cbl; CIN85; EGFR; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Protein ubiquitination is an evolutionary conserved mechanism that controls a wide variety of cellular functions. Polyubiquitinated proteins are generally degraded in the proteasome, whereas monoubiquitination controls various other cellular processes, including endocytosis and endosomal sorting. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cbl in Regulation of Growth Factor Receptor Endocytosis and Actin Dynamics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Iwona Szymkiewicz; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; RTK; Cbl; endocytosis; ubiquitination; actin; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology;

    Abstract : Proteins belonging to the Cbl family are multidomain scaffolds that participate in numerous processes, assembling signaling complexes and mediating attachment of ubiquitin to receptor and non-receptor tyrosine kinases.We characterized a novel role for Cbl and Cbl-b in ligand-dependent internalization of growth factor receptors.

  5. 5. Biological signature of HER2-positive breast cancer

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitetssjukhus

    Author : Breezy Malakkaran Lindqvist; Örebro universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HER2 breast cancer; SLC25A43; CpG island; DNA methylation; Homeobox genes; FOXO3a; FOXG1; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) overexpressing breast cancers (HER2+ breast cancer) are associated with an aggressive disease course. This thesis is focused on improving the understanding of the biological signature of HER2+ breast cancer. READ MORE
