    Abstract : Background: Despite advances in the treatment of atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. With the population getting older and more obese, the burden of cardiovascular disease may further increase. READ MORE

  2. 2. Role of caveolin-1 in brown adipose tissue

    University dissertation from Stockholm : The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Abstract : Caveolae are 50-100 nm invaginations in the plasma membrane. Caveolae and the protein caveolin-1 (Cav1) have been shown to be important in many signaling pathways in different cell types; however, in some cell types caveolae and Cav1 do not seem to affect the investigated signaling pathways.
