  1. 1. Susceptibility to chronic liver disease

    Author : Maria Antonella Burza; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chronic liver disease; susceptibility; human genetics; NAFLD; ALD; PNPLA3;

    Abstract : The onset and the progression of chronic liver disease involve environmental and genetic factors. Hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) are important players in these processes and are the main storage site for retinol. READ MORE

  2. 2. Susceptibility genes in conformational diseases

    University dissertation from University of Gothenburg

    Author : Malin von Otter; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN; MEDICINE; Conformational disease; Alzheimer’s disease; Parkinson’s disease; Cataract Protein aggregation; Cellular transport; Oxidative stress; Susceptibility; genes; SNP; Haplotype;

    Abstract : Conformational diseases are characterized by protein misfolding and aggregation in the affected tissue. The aim of this thesis was to find genetic support for mechanisms in common for three prevalent ... READ MORE

  3. 3. Neurotoxic Effects of Nicotine During Neonatal Brain Development Critical Period and Adult Susceptibility

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Emma Ankarberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology; nicotine; neonatal development; behaviour; nicotinic receptors; susceptibility; cholinergic system; paraoxon; PBDE; Biologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi;

    Abstract : This thesis examined neurotoxic effects of nicotine exposure during a defined critical period of neonatal brain development in mice.In our environment there are numerous hazardous contaminants that an individual can be exposed to during its entire lifetime. READ MORE

  4. 4. Susceptibility effects in MRI and 1H MRS. The spurious echo artifact and susceptibility measurements

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Åsa Carlsson; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiofysik; Radiological physics; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MRI; 1H MRS; susceptibility; spurious echo; artifact; artefact;

    Abstract : When performing magnetic resonance (MR) experiments, a strong homogeneous magnetic field is often preferred, especially in clinical applications. However, all objects that are placed in the magnetic field will disturb the field homogeneity and cause local magnetic field gradients. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mycobacterial infection: Immune evasion, host susceptibility and immunological markers of diagnostic importance

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : John Arko-Mensah; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mycobacteria; Mice; Toll-like receptors; interferon gamma; immunological markers; lung; respiratory tract; susceptibility; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Immunology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Immunologi; Immunology; immunologi;

    Abstract : IIn the first study, we investigated the functional implications of prolonged TLR signalling on IFN-γ mediated killing of mycobacteria by murine macrophages in vitro. TLR2, but not TLR4 ligation interfered with IFN-γ mediated killing of mycobacteria in macrophages. READ MORE
