    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Laura Korhonen; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; neuronal cell death; XIAP; RIAP-2; Hippocalcin; Bcl-2; Bcl-X; kainic acid; DRG; estrogen; Neurovetenskap; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Neurology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Neurologi; Developmental Neurosciences; medicinsk utvecklings- och neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Apoptosis is a genetically regulated cell death program, which shows distinct morphological characteristics. It takes place during neuronal development and in some neurodegenerative diseases. During apoptosis, the intracellular proteins are degraded by various caspases, cysteine aspartases, which are regulated by pro- and anti-apoptotic signals. READ MORE

    Abstract : Apoptosis is a type of cell death with a specific morphology and molecular program, which is essential for the development of the nervous system. However, inappropriate cell death has been implicated in several neurodegenerative diseases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Regulation of apoptosis in human multiple myeloma

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Helena Spets; Uppsala universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; apoptosis; multiple myeloma; IL-6; Bcl-2; Fas; dexamethasone; IGF-I; Genetik; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Clinical genetics; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : Multiple myeloma (MM) is a clonal expansion of malignant plasmablasts-plasma cells in the bone marrow. MM is slowly proliferating and an increased resistance to apoptosis may be crucial for the tumor progression. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular mechanisms involved in the growth of human uterine leiomyomas

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Author : Xuxia Wu; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human uterine leiomyomas; myometrium; the menstrual cycle; estrogen; progesterone; cellular proliferation; apoptosis; oncogene; growth factor; growth factor receptor.;

    Abstract : Human uterine leiomyomas (fibroids) are benign neoplasms arising from uterine smooth muscle cells, and are suggested to be sex steroid dependent. The aim of this study was to investigate the molecular mechanisms by which sex steroids, mainly estrogen and progesterone, influence the growth of Ieiomyomas. READ MORE
