  1. 1. Directing Angiogenesis : Cellular Responses to Gradients in vitro

    Author : Irmeli Barkefors; Johan Kreuger; Lena Kjellén; Pär Gerwins; Ferdinand Le Noble; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Angiogenesis; Endothelial cell; Cell migration; Chemotaxis; Gradients; Microfluidics; VEGFA; VEGFR2; Exocyst; Exocytosis; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Medical Biochemistry; Medicinsk biokemi;

    Abstract : Blood vessels are essential for the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to tissues, as well as for the removal of waste products. Patients with tumors, wounds or diabetes all have active angiogenesis, formation and remodeling of blood vessels, a process that is initiated and manipulated by gradients of secreted signaling proteins.

  2. 2. Regulation of Angiogenesis

    Author : Helena Larsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; angiogenesis; anti-angiogenesis; endostatin; latent antithrombin; prelatent antithrombin; Crk; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones. New blood vessel formation is fundamental in processes such as reproduction, embryonic development and wound healing. Growth of neoplasms is accompanied by increased angiogenesis. This thesis describes cellular and molecular mechanisms of importance for angiogenesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Human Endometrial Angiogenesis : An Immunohistochemical Study of the Endometrial Expression of Angiogenic Growth Factors and Their Corresponding Receptors

    Author : Björn Möller; Matts Olovsson; Bo Lindblom; Kristina Gemzell-Danielsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; Human endometrium; angiogenesis; menstrual cycle; endothelial cells; immunohistochemistry; western blot; VEGF; VEGFR; FGF-2; FGFR; EGF; EGFR; levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system; Medicin; Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : The human endometrium undergoes dramatic changes in morphology and function during the menstrual cycle. Recurrent angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels) is of utmost importance for oxygen supply and nourishment of the rapidly growing endometrial tissue. READ MORE

  4. 4. Leukocytes in Angiogenesis : Learning from Transplanted Pancreatic Islets

    Author : Gustaf Christoffersson; Mia Phillipson; Kristian Pietras; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; angiogenesis; pancreatic islet transplantation; islets of Langerhans; diabetes mellitus; leukocytes; neutrophils; macrophages; pericytes; MMP-9; VEGF-A; Medical Science; Medicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels, is a complex process involving several cell types and molecular signals. Excessive vascular growth is a problem in tumors, and insufficient vascularization hampers the function of transplanted insulin-producing pancreatic islets. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular Regulation of Angiogenesis

    Author : Sofie Mellberg; Lena Claesson-Welsh; Frank Böhmer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; endothelial morphogenesis; VEGFR-2; protein tyrosine phosphatase; VE-PTP; PTPRB; endocan; ESM-1; angiogenesis; Molecular medicine; Molekylär medicin;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis, de novo formation of blood vessels from the pre-existing vasculature, is crucial in embryo development, and in processes in the adult such as wound healing and ovulation. Angiogenesis is also involved in pathological conditions such as cancer and chronic inflammatory diseases, which are propagated by dysregulated, excess angiogenesis. READ MORE
