  1. 1. Aspects on the modulation of potassium channels in insulin-producing beta-cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Zuheng Ma; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; islets of Langerhans; over-stimulation; diazoxide; exocytosis; proteasome; microarray; Kv1.1.;

    Abstract : This thesis attempts to further clarify mechanisms behind the negative effects of overstimulation and the beneficial effect of β-cell rest. For this purpose diazoxide - opener of K+-ATP channels, which reversibly inhibits glucose-induced insulin secretion, was used as a probe. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neural growth : With special emphasis on adult neurogenesis and the effect of antiepileptic drugs

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Malin Almgren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Neurons were for a long time thought to not renew themselves. In the 1960ies the phenomenon of neurogenesis was discovered, but it was not until 1998 that neurogenesis was demonstrated in humans. READ MORE

  3. 3. The megencephaly mouse : From gene to neuronal proliferation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Ann-Sophie Persson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Megalencephaly; epilepsy; mouse model; genetics; voltage gated potassium channel; hippocampus; proliferation;

    Abstract : Megalencephaly, enlarged brain, can be associated with a wide range of symptoms from benign to severe. Severe cases are often associated with mental retardation and seizures. The megencephaly mouse shows a dramatic, progressive increase in size of the hippocampus and ventral cortex. READ MORE

  4. 4. Role of potassium channels in regulating neuronal activity

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Göran Klement; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Potassium channels; threshold dynamics; trafficking; hERG; SMOCs; excitability;

    Abstract : The firing behaviour of excitable cells is fundamental for the information processing in multicellular organisms, varying from single spikes to different forms of repetitive firing. Of the many regulators, voltage gated potassium channels play a major role. In this thesis some aspects of the potassium channel regulation of firing are explored. READ MORE
