  1. 1. On the Regulation of Ornithine Decarboxylase

    Author : Eva Lövkvist Wallström; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fysiologi; Physiology; Crithidia fasciculata.; polyamines; Ornithine decarboxylase; translational control; osmolarity; untranslated region; COS cells; CHO cells; transfection; protein turnover; PEST region;

    Abstract : The polyamines putrescine, spermidine and spermine have been shown to be involved in cell growth and differentiation, and are considered to be crucial components of the living cell. The synthesis of polyamines in the cell is strictly regulated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modulation of Autoimmunity by Linomide treatment or interference with costimulation

    Author : Annamaria C Tellander; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oncology; Cytology; collagen-induced arthritis; CD28; CD40; antigen presenting cells; Linomide; thymocytes; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer;

    Abstract : Linomide is a potent immunomodulator that has been shown to inhibit autoimmunity in several animal models of autoimmune disease. We have approached the cellular and molecular mechanism of Linomide by investigating its effect on thymocyte development and its capacity to modulate the expression of activation markers on antigen presenting cells (APCs).

  3. 3. Mucins in normal and diseased airways

    Author : Hans Hovenberg; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Respiratory system; Submucosal glands; Goblet cells; Organ culture; Respiratory tract; Mucins; Mucus glycoproteins; Andningsorganen;

    Abstract : Mucus glycoproteins (mucins) are the principal constituents of respiratory secretions in health and disease. The increased 'acidity' of mucin producing cells in the bronchitic airways is not reflected in a change of negative charge of bronchitic mucins. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pharmacological Modulation of Skeletal Homeostasis

    Author : Niklas U. Andersson; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Farmakologi; toxicology; farmakognosi; farmaci; toxikologi; pharmacy; pharmacognosy; Pharmacological sciences; peripheral quantitative computed tomography.; dual energy X-ray absorptiomenty; estrogen; parathyroid hormone; gastrectomy; alendronate; ovariectomy; Bone;

    Abstract : Both ovariectomy (OVX) and gastrectomy (GX) cause osteopenia in several animal species including humans. While the effect of OVX has been ascribed to estrogen deficiency, the underlying mechanism behind GX-induced osteopenia is poorly understood. READ MORE

  5. 5. Studies on chondrocyte integrins and mechanical signaling

    Author : Karin Holmvall; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; teratology; Development biology; collagen; mechnaical stimulation; cartilage; development; chondrocyte; integrin; ontogeny; embryology human ; Utvecklingsbiologi; teratologi; embryologi människa ;

    Abstract : Integrins are a family of cell surface receptors known to bind matrix proteins and to mediate signals such as mechanical signals between the cell and the surrounding matrix. We have studied integrins that are expressed by chondrocytes, with specific focus on the integrins that interact with the cartilage matrix protein collagen type II. READ MORE
