  1. 1. Life without thyroid hormone receptors

    Author : Sten Göthe; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Thyroid hormone (TH) has many important functions during development and in the adult individual. It reaches its target cells via the blood system and binds its receptor (TR) located within the cell nucleus where the receptor regulates target genes. This hormone-mediated gene regulation is a finely tuned interplay of numerous parameters. READ MORE

  2. 2. Thyroid hormone receptors in liver metabolism

    Author : Hjalmar Gullberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Thyroid hormone has a profound impact on mammalian metabolism; hypothyroidism causes decreased metabolic rate and increased serum cholesterol levels. One major target organ for the hormone is the liver, the most important metabolic organ in mammals, that balances anabolism of carbohydrates and lipids against catabolism. READ MORE

  3. 3. Receptors for growth hormone and prolactin. Regulation and activation

    Author : Gunnel Hellgren; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Growth hormone; GH receptor; Janus kinase; GH sensitivity; 5 -untranslated region; prolactin; prolactin receptor adipose tissue; liver; skeletal muscle; epidermal growth factor receptor; tyrosine kinase; kinase activity;

    Abstract : Cytokine receptor activation is dependent on ligand-induced receptor dimerization or oligomerization and subsequent activation of several intracellular proteins. Activation of Janus kinases (Jaks) is probably the first intracellular event that occurs after receptor dimerization. READ MORE

    Abstract : There is sex-bias in morbidity and mortality from infectious diseases. Infections kill more men than women and several studies have pointed out differences in the immune system as a reason. The sex hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone all shape the effect of the immune response on multiple levels. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sex steroid hormone receptors : Inner ear & hearing

    Author : Rusana Simonoska; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : It is well known that hearing loss is more profound in elderly males than females, regardless of noise exposure. Also, an age-related hearing decline starts much earlier in males, already after the age of 30, while in women, the decline does not start until the age of 50. READ MORE
