  1. 1. Structural and Functional Aspects of β1 Integrin Signalling

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Stina Nilsson; Staffan Johansson; Teet Velling; Maria Fällman; [2006]
    Keywords : Cell and molecular biology; Integrin; Integrin subunit β1; Integrin activation; Threonine; Phosphorylation; Integrin signalling; FAK; PI3K; MAPK; Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Integrins are transmembrane glycoproteins primarily mediating interactions of cells with the extracellular matrix. Each receptor is a complex of one α- and one β-subunit with affinity for a diverse set of ligands. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of invasin and YopH of Yersinia pseudotuberculosis on host cell signaling

    University dissertation from Umeå : Molekylärbiologi (Teknisk-naturvetenskaplig fakultet)

    Author : Anna Gustavsson; Maria Fällman; Arnoud Sonnenberg; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; β1-integrin; Yersinia pseudotuberculosis; Invasin; YopH; Cell-Matrix Adhesion; Filopodia; Cell Spreading; Molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Integrins are a large family of membrane-spanning heterodimeric (αβ) receptors that bind to ligands on other cells or to extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins. These receptors mediate bidirectional signaling over the cell membrane to induce signaling cascades mediating functions as cell adhesion, spreading and migration. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adhesion Dependent Signals Cell Survival, Receptor Crosstalk and Mechanostimulation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anjum Riaz; Staffan Johansson; Bengt Hallberg; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Integrins; Signal transduction; Protein kinase B; Akt; PI3K; Heparanase; ROS; Mechanosignalling; Molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology; Biology with specialization in Molecular Cell Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär cellbiologi; Cellforskning; Cell Research;

    Abstract : The integrin family of cell surface receptors is evolutionary conserved and found in all multicellular animals. In humans 8-alpha and 18-beta integrins are non-covalently associated into 24 dimers. Integrins mediate cell-extracellular matrix and cell-cell interactions and participate in cell signalling.

  4. 4. Functional studies of integrin subunit 1 and its cytoplasmic domain

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Krister Wennerberg; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; integrin; integrin subunit β1; integrin signaling; extracellular matrix; fibronectin polymerisation; focal adhesions; focal adhesion kinase; metastasis; Biokemi; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; Medical Biochemistry; medicinsk biokemi;

    Abstract : Integrin subunit β1 can form functional heterodimeric receptors together with at least 11different a subunits. These integrins are the main cellular receptors for extracellular matrixproteins such as collagens, fibronectin, laminins, and others, and they are necessary fornormal embryonal development.

  5. 5. Intervertebral disc regeneration. Studies on stem cell niches and cell transplantation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Helena Barreto Henriksson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intervertebral disc stem cells degenerative disc cell transplantation stem cell niches disc degeneration mesenchymal stem cells cell therapy;

    Abstract : Abstract Intervertebral disc regeneration Studies on stem cell niches and cell transplantation Helena Barreto Henriksson Gothenburg 2010 Low back pain is a common condition in the Western world and disc degeneration (DD) is considered a major cause. DD is characterized by dysfunctional cells and decreased matrix production. READ MORE
