  1. 1. Endocannabinoid metabolism the impact of inflammatory factors and pharmacological inhibitors

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jessica Karlsson; Umeå universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; endocannabinoid; anandamide; 2-AG; fatty acid amide hydrolase; cyclooxygenase-2; prostate cancer; catabolism; inflammation; inflammatory factors;

    Abstract : The endocannabinoid (eCB) system is an endogenous signaling system consisting of ligands (referred to as endocannabinoids, eCBs), receptors and metabolic enzymes. The eCB system is involved in homeostatic control of a variety of biological functions such as neuronal signaling, mood, appetite and pathological conditions such as pain, inflammation and tumour progression.

  2. 2. Metabolic Engineering of the Central Carbon Metabolism in Streptococcus thermophilus for Enhanced Exopolysaccharide Production

    University dissertation from Applied Microbiology (LTH)

    Author : Malin Svensson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; Biokemisk teknik; Biochemical technology; Analytisk kemi; Analytical chemistry; metabolism; Biokemi; Metabolism; mykologi; Biochemistry; virologi; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virology; mycology; bacteriology; Streptococcus thermophilus; Microbiology; Metabolic engineering; Lactic acid bacteria; Exopolysaccharides; Central carbon metabolism;

    Abstract : The lactic acid bacterium, Streptococcus thermophilus, is used in the dairy industry in mixed cultures with Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus for the production of yoghurt. Many strains of S. thermophilus produce exopolysaccharides (EPSs) which affect the texture and viscosity of fermented food products. READ MORE

  3. 3. Control of metabolism and hormone secretion from pancreatic alpha and beta cells

    University dissertation from Molecular Metabolism

    Author : Jelena Stamenkovic; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CLOCK genes; insulin; glucagon; metabolites; mitochondria; knock out;

    Abstract : Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) is a multifactorial disease, which has made it difficult to resolve its pathophysiology. We investigated processes that could contribute to the development of T2D. READ MORE

  4. 4. Examining the role of metabolism in Myc-driven tumorigenesis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University, Department of Molecular Biology (Faculty of Science and Technology)

    Author : Tacha Zi Plym Forshell; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cancer; Myc; metabolism; polyamines; spermidine synthase; glycolysis; lactate dehydrogenase; serine metabolism; Phgdh; folate metabolism; Shmt; Pim kinase; Pim-3 Kinase; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Myc transcriptionally regulates genes involved in processes such as cell proliferation, metabolism, differentiation, and angiogenesis.  MYC expression is deregulated in many types of human cancer; therefore discovering the mechanisms behind MYCs role in tumorigenesis is essential.
