  1. 1. Functional and molecular aspects of interferon action in human natural killer cells and other leucocytes

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Åke Gustafsson; Umeå universitet.; [1985]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; natural killer cell; large granular lymphocyte; interferon; interferon production; interferon-induced; protein synthesis; two-dimensional electrophoresis;

    Abstract : Interferons comprise a class of structurally related proteins which exert several regulatory effects in responsive cells. These effects include the establishment of an antiviral state, the inhibition of cellular proliferation and the alteration of different immune reactions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies on the antiproliferative action of interferon effects on proteins synthesized in the G1 and S phase of the cell cycle in 2 anchorage-dependent cell lines

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Dan Lundblad; Umeå universitet.; [1991]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Interferon; Glioma; Antiproliferative effect; DNA polymerase; Thymidine kinase; 2 -5 oligo A; Protein synthesis; Two-dimensional electrophorensis; Mouse fibroblasts; C-myc; KI-67 antigen;

    Abstract : Interferons (IFNs) are a class of structurally related proteins first discovered to be produced by virus-infected cells. By now, several other inducing agents have been described. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aspects of interferon alpha signalling in hematopoetic cells

    University dissertation from Umeå universitet

    Author : Lennart Carlsson; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; interferon; human; B-lymphocyte; survival; proliferation; myeloma; Molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : The type I interferons (IFN) are a family of cytokines with pleiothropic activities that include inhibition of viral replication, cell proliferation and activation of the immune system. These properties give the IFNs important physiological and pathological roles in infection and cancer and have led to their therapeutic use for many clinical conditions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Monoclonal antibodies to human interferon-α and interferon-γ : Characterization and application with focus on interferon-γ as a T cell cytokine

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Gudrun Andersson; Stockholms universitet.; [1992]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : The major functions of the immune system are to combat infections and to control that normal auto-immunity does not turn into auto-aggression. Antibodies, together with T cell receptors and MHC molecules, dictates the immunological specificity. READ MORE

  5. 5. Multiple Sclerosis: Studies of the Interferon system and search for infectious agents

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Lund University

    Author : My Bergkvist; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; neuropsychology; Neurology; Axon and myelin damage; IgG; Virus; Interferon; Multiple Sclerosis; Genetic linkage;

    Abstract : Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the central nervous system, characterized by focal inflammatory lesions with demyelination and axonal loss. It is believed that MS is an immune-mediated disorder with both genetic and environmental contributions to the pathogenesis. READ MORE
