  1. 1. Regulation of E-cadherin mediated adhesion in thyroid epithelial cells

    Author : Fredrik Larsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; thyroid; adherens junction; E-cadherin; thyrotropin; cAMP; PKA; Epac; IQGAP;

    Abstract : Cell adhesion is one of multicellular organisms most fundamental features. Cells connect to each other by transmembrane proteins arranged in junction complexes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Molecular factors influencing epithelial-mesenchymal transition in breast cancer

    Author : Gisela M A Nilsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; breast cancer; epithelial-mesenchymal transition; c-erbB2; E-cadherin; NFI-C2; FoxF1; LOX;

    Abstract : Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a developmental process defined by loss of epithelial characteristics and acquisition of mesenchymal phenotype. EMT or similar processes are also implicated in carcinoma cell invasion and the progression of breast carcinoma to metastasis. READ MORE

    Abstract : Colorectal carcinoma is the second most common type of cancer in both men and women in Sweden. Cancer of the colon and rectum are often considered together and their ten year survival rate is approximately 50 – 60 % depending on sex and location. READ MORE

  5. 5. Role of ß-catenin and Leukotriene in Colon Cancer Progression

    University dissertation from Cell Pathology

    Author : Tavga Salim; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LTD4; β-catenin; E-cadherin; GSK-3β; inflammation; colorectal cancer;

    Abstract : Abstract Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer worldwide. Deregulation of Wnt/β-catenin signalling pathway is an early hallmark of colon cancer. Were nuclear accumulation of β-catenin is a marker of activated canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling. One of the risk factors for development of colon cancer is inflammatory bowel disease. READ MORE
