  1. 1. Polyamines are involved in the regulation of S phase and DNA synthesis

    University dissertation from Department of Animal Physiology, Lund University

    Author : Kersti Alm; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Djurfysiologi; Animal physiology; cell cycle regulation; p53; DNA strand breaks; replicon organization; topoisomerase II;

    Abstract : Our research group has previously shown that treatment with the polyamine biosynthesis inhibitors a-difluoromethylornithine (DFMO) or amidinoindan-1-one 2´-amidinohydrazone (CGP 48664) inhibited S phase progression before any other cell cycle phase was affected. This study was undertaken to further investigate the role of polyamines in the regulation of S phase progression and DNA synthesis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cardiovascular and respiratory effects of apnea in humans

    University dissertation from Animal Physiology

    Author : Johan Andersson; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lung volume; breath-hold diving; Apnea; breath-holding; face immersion; cold stimulation; diving response; diving reflex; circulation; bradycardia; vasoconstriction; arterial blood pressure; cardiac output; spleen; respiration; splenic contraction; alveol; Physiology; Fysiologi; Respiratory system; Andningsorganen; Animal physiology; Djurfysiologi;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with cardiovascular and respiratory effects of apneas in humans. During apnea (breath-holding), a number of interacting cardiovascular reflexes are initiated, and together these reflexes are called the “diving response”. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effects of polyamine pool manipulation on genes expressed during the cell cycle

    University dissertation from Pia Berntsson Department of Cell and Organism Biology Lund University Zoofysiologiska huset HelgonavŠgen 3 B SE-223 62

    Author : Pia Berntsson; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Animal physiology; cyclin A; ODC; MCF-7; mitotic shake off; DENSPM; CHO; cDNA microarray; cell cycle; spermine; Djurfysiologi; AdoMetDC; 2D gel electrophoresis; polyamines; spermidine; putrescine;

    Abstract : The polyamines - putrescine, spermidine and spermine - are polycations found within cells. They have been shown to be essential for optimal cell proliferation and cell survival. Cells maintain their polyamine levels in a well-regulated system involving biosynthesis, catabolism and uptake/excretion. READ MORE

  4. 4. Visual ecology of insect superposition eyes

    University dissertation from Swedish Natural Science Research Council, P.O. Box 71 42, SE-103 87 Stockholm, Sweden or: Dan-Eric Nilsson, Department of Zoology, Helgonavägen 3, 223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Pär A Brännström; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Animal physiology; tiger beetle; hawkmoth; mayfly; insect; visual ecology; eye design; vision; compound eye; Djurfysiologi;

    Abstract : In the superposition compound eye each rhabdom (light sensitive unit) receives light through many ommatidial facets, while in the apposition compound eye every rhabdom receives light from a single facet. The superposition design increases photon capture, which is an advantage in dark environments. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of the exocrine pancreas in growing pigs, with special emphasis on entero-pancreatic reflexes

    University dissertation from Lena Evilevitch, Helgonavägen 3 B, 223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Lena Evilevitch; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; kidney bean lectin; Animal physiology; Djurfysiologi; duodenum; entero-pancreatic reflex; insulin; lipas; amylas; trypsin; weaning; development; maturation; inhibition; CCK-receptors; Exocrine pancreas; CCK; pig;

    Abstract : The regulation of the exocrine pancreas has been under thorough investigation for many decades. In rats, cholecystokinin (CCK) is considered to be the major gut hormone stimulating the pancreas to releasing the digestive enzymes. READ MORE
