  1. 1. Interactions between mouse CNS cells : Microglia and neural precursor cells

    Author : Johan Aarum; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Aggregate cultures; cell markers; CNS; differentiation; fetal; immunohistochemistry; microglia; migration; neural stem cells; phage display; precursor; Slit.;

    Abstract : The mammalian central nervous system (CNS) contains a variety of cells, all specialized to perform different functions. Most numerous are the three types of glia cells, whose basic role is to support the signaling units of the CNS, the neurons. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cell interactions in the CNS and their consequences for neuronal apoptosis

    Author : Mikaela Berglund; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Aggregate cultures; apoptosis; automated image analysis; cytochrome c; interactions; JNK; microglia; neuron; neural precursor cells; rotenone; UV.;

    Abstract : The central nervous system consists of an intricate network of neurons and glial cells that depend on reciprocal communication to develop and maintain the vital functions of the brain. if the balance is disturbed by injury or disease, two cell types in particular, microglia and astrocytes, respond by producing factors that help combat the infection or delimit the affected area.

  3. 3. Effects of virus infection and interferon- y on the development of the neuromuscular junction in vitro

    Author : Sofija Kelic; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Normal development of the nervous system depends upon complex interactionsbetween cells and their local environment. These interactions may be disturbed bytoxic and infectious agents. It is well known that such agents can causemalformations, due to interference with neural tube formation or neuronalproliferation and migration. READ MORE

  4. 4. In vitro wound healing characteristics of amelogenins

    Author : Sofia Almqvist; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; amelogenins; extracellular matrix; cell culture; macrophage; fibroblast; endothelial cell; integrin; cytokine; inflammation; wound healing tissue repair;

    Abstract : Wound healing involves the co-ordinated actions of several cell types, soluble cell mediators and extracellular matrix (ECM). This research project intended to investigate the role of certain ECM proteins in different processes during tissue repair by studying the interaction between dermal cells and ECM. READ MORE

  5. 5. Characterisation and Consolidation of Historical Lime Mortars in Cultural Heritage Buildings and Associated Structures in East Africa

    Author : Athuman M. K. Ngoma; Jonas Holmgren; Jan Erik Lindqvist; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; East Africa; Stone Town; historical building; mortar; deterioration; consolidation; calcium hydroxide solution; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : For the period of several centuries, the influence of several distinct cultures produced rich and diverse cultural heritage that we see today in East Africa countries. The most tangible remains of these heritages are stone built buildings and structures including, palaces, mosques, residential houses and tombs. READ MORE
