  1. 1. Adaptive immune response in the intestinal mucosa of microscopic colitis patients

    Author : Ashok Kumar Kumawat; Elisabeth Hultgren-Hörnquist; Johan Bohr; Curt Tysk; Allan Sirsjö; Samuel Lundin; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microscopic colitis; collagenous colitis; lymphocytic colitis; intraepithelial lymphocytes; lamina propria lymphocytes; T cell receptor excision circle; T helper cells; cytotoxic T lymphocyte and mucosal cytokines; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : Microscopic colitis (MC) is a chronic diarrhoeal disease of unknown aetiology, comprising collagenous colitis (CC) and lymphocytic colitis (LC). The nature of the adaptive local immune responses in the mucosa of MC patients is however far from elucidated. READ MORE

  2. 2. The molecular mechanisms behind perception and signal transduction of UV-B irradiation in Arabidopsis thaliana

    Author : Irina Kalbina; Åke Strid; Lars-Gunnar Franzén; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Action spectroscopy; Arabidopsis; gene expression; reverse genetics; signal transduction; UV-B irradiation.; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Elevation of UV-B radiation (280-315 nm), occurring as a result of depletion of the stratospheric ozone, causes a number of physiological and biochemical changes in plants. Damage to the photosynthetic apparatus (including the bleaching of the pigments which trap the sun's energy), to the processes of cell division and growth regulation, and to the composition and replication of genetic material are just some of these changes.

  3. 3. Molecular mechanisms mediating development of pulmonary cachexia in COPD

    Author : Vladimir Basic; Jorge Ruas; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; COPD; cachexia; atrophy; cigarette smoke; myogenesis; angiogenesis; Biomedicin; Biomedicine; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Cigarette smoking (CS) represents the main causative agent underlying development and progress of COPD. Recently, involvement of CS in the pathogenesis of COPDassociated muscle abnormalities is becoming increasingly evident. Nevertheless, involved triggers and underlying mechanisms remain largely unknown. READ MORE

  4. 4. CYP26B1 as regulator of retinoic acid in vascular cells and atherosclerotic lesions

    Author : Ali Ateia Elmabsout; Allan Sirsjö; Karin Fransén; Helen Håkansson; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CYP26B1; alternative splice; vascular cells; atherosclerosis; alltrans-retinoic acid; gene polymorphism; inflammation; statins; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease (CVD), currently the most common cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, is caused mainly by atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a chronic multifocal, immunoinflammatory, fibroproliferative disease of medium and large arteries. READ MORE

  5. 5. DNA methylation in the placenta and in cancerwith special reference to folate transporting genes

    Author : Sanja Farkas; Torbjörn Nilsson; Lars Breimer; Warren D. Kruger; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DNA methylation; CRC; placenta; cervix; leukocytes; T-DMRs; folate; array; expression; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism that regulates the gene transcription. Folate is used in cellular synthesis of methyl groups, nucleic acids and amino acids. In complex diseases like cancer and neural tube defects (NTD), various genetic and epigenetic alterations can be found that disrupt the normal cell function. READ MORE
