    Abstract : The solute carrier family is the largest family of membrane-bound transporters in humans, with 430 members divided into 65 subfamilies. They transport various substrates across lipid barriers and are vital for absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion in all cell types in the body. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetic mechanisms regulating proliferation and cell specification in the Drosophila embryonic CNS

    Author : Shahrzad Bahrampour; Stefan Thor; Jan-Ingvar Jönsson; Simon Sprecher; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : The extracellular matrix is (ECM) is a network of large, structural proteins and polysaccharides, important for cellular behavior, tissue development and maintenance. Present thesis describes work exploring ECM as scaffolds for tissue engineering by manipulating cells cultured in vitro or by influencing ECM expression in vivo. READ MORE
