  1. 1. Transglutaminase and peptidylarginine deiminase in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases

    University dissertation from Chronic Inflammatory and Degenerative Diseases Research Unit

    Author : Bodil Roth; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pathogenesis; multiple sclerosis; peptidylarginine deiminase; transglutaminase.; Sjögren’s syndrome; autoimmune; Alzheimer’s disease;

    Abstract : Coeliac disease (CD) is becoming a model for understanding the pathogenesis of autoimmune disorders. In CD, antibodies against transglutaminase 2 (TG2) and specific glutamine residues of gliadins have been identified. READ MORE

  2. 2. Proteomics of the Drosophila hemolymph clot and the function of transglutaminase

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biology and Functional Genomics, Stockholm University

    Author : Christine Wilhelmsson; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Drosophila; clotting; transglutaminase; innate immunity; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Insects rely on a fast and effective coagulation and wound response to avoid loss of body fluids and immobilize pathogens. Arthropod coagulation is in some respect equivalent to vertebrate coagulation but most factors and the regulation of coagulation systems seem not to be phylogenetically conserved. READ MORE

  3. 3. Serologic Markers in Screening for Coeliac Disease, Clinical significance and immunogenetic basis

    University dissertation from Department of Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Klas Sjöberg; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transglutaminase; Gastro-enterology; specificity; sensitivity; prevalence; HLA; liver disease; endomysial antibodies; gliadin antibodies; diabetes; Autoimmune disease; coeliac disease; Gastroenterologi;

    Abstract : The prevalence of coeliac disease (CD) was initially estimated to 1/1537. Based on serial analysis [GA and endomysial antibodies (EMA)], the prevalence was 6/1970 (0.30%). In autoimmune chronic hepatitis 5. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular and functional characterization of the insect hemolymph clot

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för molekylärbiologi och funktionsgenomik

    Author : Malin Lindgren; Stockholms universitet.; Södertörns högskola.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi Molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; molekylärbiologi; Innate immunity; hemolymph coagulation; transglutaminase;

    Abstract : All metazoans possess an epithelial barrier that protects them from their environment and prevents loss off body fluid. Insects, which have an open circulatory system, depend on fast mechanism to seal wounds to avoid excessive loss of body fluids. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hematopoiesis in a Crustacean

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Xionghui Lin; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; astakine; cytokine; hematopoiesis; prokineticin; transglutaminase; ATP synthase; innate immunity; apoptosis; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Immunologi; Biology with specialization in Comparative Physiology; Biologi med inriktning mot jämförande fysiologi;

    Abstract : Hemocytes (blood cells) play an important role in the immune response in invertebrates, and thus the regulation of hemocyte homeostasis (hematopoiesis) is essential for the host survival against pathogens. Astakine 1, a homologue to vertebrate prokineticins, was first identified in the freshwater crayfish Pacifastacus leniusculus as a cytokine, and was found to be necessary for new hemocyte synthesis and release in vivo, and also to induce spreading and proliferation of Hematopoietic tissue cells (Hpt cells, precursor of hemocytes) in vitro.
