  1. 1. Integrin Signaling in Cell Adhesion and Mechanotransduction : Regulation of PI3K, AKT, and ROS

    Author : Kathrin Stephanie Zeller; Staffan Johansson; Kristofer Rubin; John Couchman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; integrin; ROS; PI3K; AKT; mechanosignaling; actin polymerization; spreading;

    Abstract : Integrins are a family of conserved cell surface receptors found throughout the animal kingdom. They comprise 24 dimers in mammals, and regulate a number of processes including cell survival, differentiation, and migration. READ MORE

  2. 2. Colorectal cancer and radiation response : The role of EGFR, AKT and cancer stem cell markers

    Author : Sara Häggblad Sahlberg; Bo Stenerlöw; Bengt Glimelius; Marika Nestor; Torgny Stigbrand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; colorectal cancer; radiation; AKT; EGFR; cancer stem cells; CD133; CD44; Biomedical Radiation Science; Biomedicinsk strålningsvetenskap; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär cellbiologi; Biology with specialization in Molecular Cell Biology;

    Abstract : The primary treatment for colorectal cancer is surgery. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy, sometimes combined, are also frequently used to diminish recurrence risk. In response to radiation exposure, several cellular signaling cascades are activated to repair DNA breaks, prevent apoptosis and to keep the cells proliferating. READ MORE

  3. 3. Regulation of Apoptosis in Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells: Involvement of Different Signaling Pathways

    Author : Maria Kraft; Institutionen för translationell medicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cytokines; apoptosis; cell cycle; c-Kit; Flt3; Flt3-ITD; Akt; Bcl-2; FoxO3; mouse; hematopoiesis; progenitor;

    Abstract : Proliferation, differentiation, and survival of hematopoietic stem cells and multipotent progenitor cells are regulated by cytokines and cell-cell interactions. Kit ligand (KL) and Flt3 ligand (FL) have pleiotropic effects, promotes survival, but are nonredundant. READ MORE

  4. 4. Adhesion Dependent Signals : Cell Survival, Receptor Crosstalk and Mechanostimulation

    Author : Anjum Riaz; Staffan Johansson; Bengt Hallberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; 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.

  5. 5. Molecular mechanisms for activation of non-canonical TGFβ pathways and their importance during prostate cancer progression

    Author : Anahita Hamidi; Marene Landstöm; Carl-Henrik Heldin; Ramin Massoumi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TGFβ; AKT; PI3K; p85α; TRAF6; TAK1; NF-κB; Src; prostate cancer; PC-3U; cell migration; inflammation; Biology with specialization in Molecular Cell Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer is the most common invasive cancer diagnosed in men and a major and growing health problem in Western countries. Deregulation of different pathways has been implicated in progression of prostate cancer, namely nuclear factor kappa enhancer binding protein (NF-κB), transforming growth factor β (TGFβ), phosphoinositide 3ʹ-kinase/AKT (PI3K/AKT) and Src kinase pathways.
