  1. 1. Cytoskeletal mechanisms in synaptic vesicle recycling

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Jenny Gustafsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Synapse; actin cytoskeleton; synaptic vesicle; endocytosis;

    Abstract : This thesis explores cytoskeletal mechanisms involved in the recycling of synaptic vesicles. As an initial step it characterizes synapses formed by giant reticulospinal axons in lamprey and defines their use as a model system. The most common type of reticulospinal synapse, "simple synapse", appeared to be most suitable as an experimental model. READ MORE

  2. 2. Colonic barrier function in ulcerative colitis - Interactions between ion and mucus secretion

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Jenny K Gustafsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intestine; mucus; ion transport; colitis; CFTR;

    Abstract : Anion and mucus secretions have traditionally been looked upon as two separate parts of the epithelial defense system. The importance of anion secretion has been attributed to its role in creating the driving force for fluid secretion that flushes the epithelium from bacteria, while mucus secretion ensures protection via the mucus layer that forms a physical barrier between the bacteria and the epithelium.
