  1. 1. Endoplasmic Reticulum Dynamic Structural Changes in Neurons: The Fission-Fusion Phenomena

    Author : Krzysztof Kucharz; Sektion IV; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fragmentation; fission; endoplasmic reticulum; neurons; FRAP; primary cultures; organotypic slice cultures; in vivo; in situ; calcium; fusion; NMDA receptor; 2-photon microscopy; confocal microscopy;

    Abstract : The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is crucial for protein synthesis and protein maturation, is involved in cell stress and serves in neurons as the major intracellular Ca2+ store. Neuronal ER forms a continuous network of cisterns and tubules extending from soma to a subset of dendritic spines. READ MORE

  2. 2. Endoplasmic reticulum function in dendrites and dendritic spines of hippocampal neurons

    Author : Ai Na Ng; Sektion IV; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endoplasmic reticulum; primary culture; dendritic spines; live cell imaging; STIM1; carbachol; store-operated calcium entry; 3; familial Alzheimer s disease; 5-dihyroxyphenyglycine;

    Abstract : In the hippocampus, dendritic spines are compartmentalized postsynaptic micro-domains in the excitatory synapse. Subsets of bigger and mushroom-shaped hippocampal dendritic spines contain tubules and cisterns of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) that are connected to the soma and dendrites of the neuron. READ MORE

  3. 3. Membrane glycoproteins of the endoplasmic reticulum : their existence, biosynthesis and incorporation into membranes

    Author : Hans Svensson; []

    Abstract : .... READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterisation of the novel endoplasmic reticulum chaperone ERDJ5

    Author : Paula Cunnea; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Endoplasmic reticulum; chaperone; unfolded protein response; protein folding; disease;

    Abstract : Communication between cells depends to a large extent on interactions between secreted proteins and membrane receptors. Therefore their production and release must be strictly regulated. Proteins that are destined for the extracellular space assemble and fold in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). READ MORE

  5. 5. Integration of Transmembrane Helices into the Endoplasmic Reticulum

    Author : Tara Hessa; Gunnar von Heijne; James Bowie; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : Membrane proteins reside in cell and organelle membranes. They play significant roles in many processes vital to living cells. Receptors and ion channels are examples of membrane proteins that regulate the physiological state of the cell and are attractive targets for drug development. READ MORE
