  1. 1. Genetic Studies of Pigmentation in Chicken

    Author : Ulrika Gunnarsson; Leif Andersson; Göran Andersson; Susanne Kerje; William J. Pavan; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Domestic animals have been selected by humans for thousands of years, which have drastically altered their genetic constitution and phenotypes. In this thesis, several of the most important genes causing pigmentation differences between the wild red junglefowl (Gallus gallus) and domestic chickens have been identified. READ MORE

  2. 2. QTL Analysis in the Pig : From the Identification of Quantitative Trait Loci to the Understanding of Molecular Mechanisms

    Author : Ellen Markljung; Leif Andersson; Göran Andersson; Göran Hjälm; Stefan Marklund; Holger Luthman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Domestic pigs have become very different form the wild ancestors they originate from. Selection for muscle growth and meat quality has made the pig a good model for genetic studies of muscle development.The first part of this thesis presents a genome-wide scan for quantitative trait loci (QTL) in a cross between Landrace and Hampshire pigs.

  3. 3. Uncovering a Novel Pathway for Autoinflammation : With a Little Help from a Wrinkled Friend

    Author : Mia Olsson; Kerstin Lindblad-Toh; Gerli Pielberg; Göran Andersson; Leif Andersson; Rikard Holmdahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; autoinflammation; hyaluronic acid; amyloidosis; canine model; genetic association; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : A major challenge in medical genetics is to identify the mutations underlying heritable diseases. Dogs are excellent genetic models in the search for causative mutations, as they constitute a large library of naturally occurring heritable diseases many of which are analogous to those suffered by man.

  5. 5. Sentinel Node in Clinical Practice : Implications for Breast Cancer Treatment and Prognosis

    Author : Yvette Andersson; Leif Bergkvist; Jan Frisell; Jana de Boniface; Robert Mansel; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; breast cancer; sentinel node; micrometastases; survival; non-sentinel node metastases;

    Abstract : The introduction of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) has conveyed several new issues, such as the risk of false negativity, long-term consequences, the prognostic significance of micrometastases and whether ALND can be omitted in sentinel lymph node- (SLN) positive patients.Archived SLN specimens from 50 false negative patients and 107 true negative controls were serially sectioned and stained with immunohistochemistry.
