  1. 1. JNK/c-Jun Signaling and Peripheral Nerve Regeneration

    Author : Charlotta Lindwall; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsychology; Neurology; Djurfysiologi; Animal physiology; JNK; signal transduction; nerve regeneration;

    Abstract : The events associated with axonal injury in the peripheral nervous system (PNS) have been described in detail. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the regenerative response, or neuronal cell death, following axonal injury are poorly understood. READ MORE

  2. 2. MEKK-1 and NF-κB Signaling in Pancreatic Islet Cell Death

    Author : Dariush Mokhtari; Nils Welsh; Michael Welsh; Anders Tengholm; Shanta Persaud; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Cell biology; MEKK-1; JNK; human islets; β-cells; siRNA; apoptosis; cell death; MAPK; nitric oxide; cytokines; streptozotocin; c-Rel; NF-κB; Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease resulting in the selective destruction of the insulin producing β-cells in the pancreas. Pro-inflammatory cytokines and the free radical nitric oxide (NO) have been implicated in mediating the destruction of β-cells, possibly through activation of the mitogen activated protein kinases (MAPKs) JNK, ERK and p38.
