  1. 1. Genetic Studies of Rheumatoid Arthritis using Animal Models

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Niklas Nordquist; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Complex disease; autoimmune; rheumatoid arthritis; genetic; mapping; QTL; locus; linkage; animal model; rat; Genetik; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Clinical genetics; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Klinisk genetik; Medical Genetics; medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : Predisposition to autoimmune diseases such as, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis, is caused by the effect of multiple genes and a strong influence from the environment. In this study, I have investigated genetic factors that confer susceptibility to rheumatoid arthritis in a rat model. READ MORE

  2. 2. Genetic Mapping of Susceptibility Genes for Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Bo Johanneson; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]

    Abstract : Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a complex autoimmune disease with unknown etiology. The aim of this thesis was to identify susceptibility regions through genetic mapping, using model-based linkage analysis on nuclear and extended SLE multicase families. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mapping genetic diseases in northern Sweden

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elisabet Einarsdottir; Umeå universitet.; [2005]

    Abstract : The population of northern Sweden has previously been shown to be well suited for the mapping of monogenic diseases. In this thesis we have tested the hypothesis that this population could also be used for efficient identification of risk genes for common diseases. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dissecting the Genetic Basis of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus The Pursuit of Functional Variants

    Abstract : Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic and systemic autoimmune disease that primarily affects women during the childbearing years. SLE is characterized by the production of autoantibodies against nucleic acids and their interacting proteins. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic studies on Systemic Lupus Erythematosus A fine mapping and candidate gene approach

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Veronica Magnusson; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]

    Abstract : Linkage in the 2q37 region was evaluated using microsatellite markers in multi-case families from Sweden, Iceland and Norway. Both the two-point and the multipoint linkage analysis show highly significant LOD scores (Z=4.51 and 6.03, respectively). READ MORE
