    Abstract : Müller cells are major glial cells in the retina and have a broad range of functions that are vital for the retinal neurons. During retinal injury gliotic response either leads to Müller cell dedifferentiation and formation of a retinal progenitor or to maintenance of mature Müller cell functions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Increased glucocorticoid sensitivity in pancreatic beta-cells : effects on glucose metabolism and insulin release

    Author : Behrous Davani; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Glucocorticoids; glucocorticoid receptor; Pancreatic beta-cell; Type 2 diabetes; insulin release;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is characterized by three pathological alterations: (1) insulin resistance in peripheral tissues, (2) increased hepatic glucose production and (3) impaired insulin secretion from the pancreatic beta-cells. Glucocorticoids (GCs) exert profound effects on glucose homeostasis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Neonatal Exposure to Anaesthesia and Adjuvants : Acute Effects on Cerebral Apoptosis and Neuroproteins, and Late  Behavioural Aberrations in Mice
