  1. 1. Formation of Iduronic Acid during Chondroitin/Dermatan Sulfate Biosynthesis

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Emil Tykesson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; GLYCOSAMINOGLYCAN; CHONDROITIN; DERMATAN; EPIMERASE; SULFOTRANSFERASE; GLYCOSAMINOGLYCAN; CHONDROITIN SULFATE; DERMATAN SULFATE; EPIMERASE; SULFOTRANSFERASE;

    Abstract : All animals and some bacteria can synthesize linear polysaccharides with a backbone of repeating disaccharideunits, called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). The GAGs are either attached to a protein core, as in proteoglycans (PGs), or exist as free polymer chains, as in hyaluronan. READ MORE

  2. 2. Aspects on dermatan sulfate metabolism

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Erik Eklund; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Klinisk biologi; Clinical biology; iduronic acid; galactosaminoglycan; Dermatan sulfate; biosynthesis;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Alla kroppens celler omges av olika typer av bindväv. Om cellerna liknas vid levande varelser kan bindväven liknas vid den strukturella omvärld de lever i, den kan motsvara deras hus och gator, deras skogar och hav. Man förstår då vilken oerhörd vikt denna omgivande bindväv har för cellernas välbefinnande. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biological Functions of Iduronic Acid in Chondroitin/Dermatan Sulfate in Tumor and Brain Development

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Under sin livstid kommer var tredje svensk i personlig kontakt med någon tumörform. För att effektivare kunna behandla cancer behöver vi bättre förstå de bakomliggande mekanismerna. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structural and Functional Analyses of Xyloside-primed Glycosaminoglycans

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Andrea Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glycosaminoglycan; Xyloside; Chondroitin sulfate; Dermatan sulfate; Heparan sulfate; Proteoglycan; Cancer;

    Abstract : Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are polysaccharides produced by essentially all mammalian cells. Due to their enormous structural diversity, they are involved in many biological processes both in health and disease, including all stages of tumor progression. READ MORE

  5. 5. Galactosaminoglycans - Role in Brittlestar Limb Regeneration

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Rashmi Ramachandra; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chondroitin sulfate; Dermatan sulfate; Brittlestar; Regeneration;

    Abstract : Regeneration is, in simple terms, ‘to re-grow’ damaged or lost parts of the body (e.g. cells, tissues and organs) and is a natural phenomenon occurring throughout the life of an organism. The regenerative capacity varies in the animal kingdom. READ MORE
