  1. 1. Growth Hormone in Athletes

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Christer Ehrnborg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Growth hormone; IGF-I; bone markers; doping; athletes; maximum exercise test; variability; supraphysiological; body composition; physical performance; IGFBP-4; IGFBP-5;

    Abstract : Doping with growth hormone (GH) is a well-known problem both among elite athletes and among people training at gyms. It is mainly the anabolic and, to some extent, lipolytic effect of GH that is valued by its users. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evolution of the Neuropeptide Y and Opioid Systems and their Genomic Regions

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Görel Sundström; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuropeptide Y; opioid; evolution; genome duplication; gene duplication; Hox; SCN; IGFBP; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Two whole genome duplications (2R) occurred early in vertebrate evolution. By using combined information from phylogenetic analyses and chromosomal location of genes, this thesis delineates the evolutionary history of two receptor-ligand systems that expanded by these large scale events.

  3. 3. Evolution of Vertebrate Endocrine and Neuronal Gene Families Focus on Pituitary and Retina

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Daniel Ocampo Daza; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; phylogenetics; evolution; molecular evolution; gene family evolution; genome duplication; gene duplication; oxytocin receptor; vasopressin receptor; visual opsin; transducin; growth hormone; prolactin; somatolactin; growth hormone receptor; prolactin receptor; somatostatin receptor; SSTR; IGFBP; evolution; molekylär evolution; fylogeni;

    Abstract : The duplication of genes followed by selection is perhaps the most prominent way in which molecular biological systems gain multiplicity, diversity and functional complexity in evolution. Whole genome duplications (WGDs) therefore have the potential of generating an extraordinary amount of evolutionary innovation. READ MORE

  4. 4. The IGF-IGFBP system in aerobic exercise : with focus on skeletal muscle

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Women's and Children's Health

    Author : Ulrika Berg; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IGF-I; IGFBP-1; microdialysis; exercise; IL-6; calpain;

    Abstract : Activity induced skeletal muscle adaptation has been suggested to be mediated largely by intrinsic factors, such as insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I. IGF-I stimulates muscle glucose and amino acid uptake and promotes anabolism. READ MORE

  5. 5. Early growth, retinopathy of prematurity and insulin-like growth factors in preterm infants

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Women's and Children's Health

    Author : Eva Engström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Preterm; ROP; nutrition; growth; growth restriction; IGF-I; IGF-II; IGFBP-3;

    Abstract : Aims:Paper I: To perform measurements of the lower leg length (LLL) in preterm infants, compare and evaluate handling error and precision of two instruments, and estimate the time required to show growth.Paper II-IV: To investigate whether low postnatal levels of serum IGF-I are associated with abnormal retinal vessel development.
