  1. 1. Adseverin – An Immune-Specific Target of 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-Dioxin

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Camilla Svensson; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Toxicology; 2; 3; 7; 8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin; TCDD; adseverin; aryl hydrocarbon receptor; immunotoxicity; thymus; cytoskeleton; Toxikologi; PHARMACY Toxicology; FARMACI Toxikologi; Toxicology; toxikologi;

    Abstract : The environmental pollutant 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) induces thymus atrophy and immunosuppression in all animal species examined and these effects constitute a potential risk to humans. TCDD can via binding to the intracellular aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR), modulate transcription of a number of genes and the aim of this thesis has been to identify such genes, which may explain the mechanisms behind TCDD-mediated immunotoxicity.

  2. 2. Selective Retention of β-Carbolines and 7,12-Dimethylbenz[a]anthracene in the Brain Role of Neuromelanin and Cytochrome P450 for Toxicity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Östergren; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Toxicology; β-carboline; neuromelanin; norharman; harman; parkinsonism; Parkinson s disease; motoric impairment; behaviour; glia cells; substantia nigra; dopamine melanin; PC12 cells; ER stress; grp78; hsp90; cytochrome P450; CYP1A1; CYP1B1; blood-brain interfaces; 7; 12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene; polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon; endothelial cell; smooth muscle cell; bioactivation; Toxikologi; PHARMACY Toxicology; FARMACI Toxikologi; Toxicology; toxikologi;

    Abstract : The ß-carbolines norharman and harman structurally resemble the synthetic compound 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) that is known for its ability to damage neuromelanin-containing dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra and thereby induce parkinsonism. MPTP is, however, not normally present in the environment whereas the ß-carbolines are present in cooked food and tobacco smoke. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mechanisms behind Cadmium-Induced Teratogenicity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Estíbaliz López Fernández de Villaverde; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Toxicology; Cadmium; Teratogenesis; Exencephaly; Mechanisms; Toxikologi; PHARMACY Toxicology; FARMACI Toxikologi;

    Abstract : Heavy metals polluting our environment cause concern for developing organisms. Among them, cadmium with extremely slow elimination from the body, causes lower birth weight in humans but has not been classify as a human teratogen. Studies in different laboratory animals have shown that cadmium indeed is a potent teratogen. READ MORE

  4. 4. Proteomic Characterization of Induced Developmental Neurotoxicity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Henrik Alm; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Proteomics; Brain Development; Neurotoxicity; 2D-DIGE; Brain Growth Spurt; Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether; Neonatal; Striatum; Hippocampus; Cerebral Cortex; Parkinsonism; Dyskinesia; PHARMACY Toxicology; FARMACI Toxikologi; Toxicology; Toxikologi;

    Abstract : The developing brain goes through a number of developmental periods during which it displays an increased sensitivity to exogenous disturbances. On such period is the so called “Brain growth spurt” (BGS) which in humans takes place starting from the third trimester of pregnancy and throughout the first few years of life. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Det innersta cellagret i blodkärl (endotelet) kan frisätta både kontraktila (kärlsammandragande) och relaxerande (kärlvidgande) faktorer. När receptorer på endotelet stimuleras med till exempel acetylkolin så frisätts relaxerande faktorer. READ MORE
