  1. 1. Mitochondrial function in human skeletal muscle: with special reference to exercise and training

    University dissertation from Stockholm

    Author : Michail Tonkonogi; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2000]
    Keywords : aerobic metabolism; oxidative phosphorylation; mitochondria; oxygen utilisation; citrate synthase; ADP sensitivity; ATP; muscle fibres; hydrogen ions; lactate; free radicals; proton leak; uncoupling; exercise;

    Abstract : The overall objective of this thesis was to study the adaptation of oxidative function in human skeletal muscle to acute exercise of different modes, intensities and durations, and to endurance training.The effects of endurance training on mitochondrial function were evaluated in cross-sectional and longitudinal studies by measurements of mitochondrial oxygen consumption in isolated mitochondria and permeabilised muscle fibres and measurements of mitochondrial ATP production rate in isolated mitochondria.

  2. 2. Oxidant-induced cell death in lymphocytes: mechanisms of induction and resistance

    University dissertation from Stockholm

    Author : Fredrik Bergh Thorén; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reactive oxygen species; cell death; apoptosis; poly ADP-ribose polymerase-1; apoptosis-inducing factor; natural killer cells; phagocytes; dendritic cells;

    Abstract : Reactive oxygen species (oxidants, oxygen radicals) produced by the phagocytic NADPH oxidase have pivotal roles in immunity. Patients lacking a functional NADPH oxidase suffer from chronic granulomatous disease, which is characterized by recurring bacterial infections and thus manifesting the importance of reactive oxygen species in host defense against bacteria.

  4. 4. The role of exercise and exercise-related factors in the control of mitochondrial oxidative function

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Author : Brandon Walsh; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Skinned fibers; permeabilized fibers; skeletal muscle; exercise; mitochondria; ADP sensitivity; aerobic metabolism; training; eccentric; high intensity; creatine; phosphocreatine; inorganic phosphate; hydrogen ions;

    Abstract : The effects of exercise and exercise-related factors on the control of mitochondrial oxidative function were investigated in human and rat skeletal muscle. Oxidative function was assessed through the measurement of oxygen consumption in chemically permeabilized (skinned) fibers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Variability and adaptation in the contractile system of smooth muscle

    University dissertation from Mia Löfgren, Dept of Physiological Sciences, BMC F11, Tornavägen 10, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Mia Löfgren; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; essential light chain; desmin; shortening velocity; integrin; intermediate filament; hypertrophy; non-muscle myosin; smooth muscle; myosin; heavy chain; Physiology; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Det finns tre muskeltyper i människokroppen; skelettmuskler, hjärtmuskler och glatta muskler. Skelettmusklerna är de muskler som gör att vi kan röra oss och andas (mellangärdesmuskeln är en skelettmuskel). Hjärtmuskelcellerna är de som gör att hjärtat slår. READ MORE
