  1. 1. 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.

    Abstract : Heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs) consist of a protein core to which several linear, negatively charged heparan sulfate (HS) chains are covalently attached. HSPGs are expressed on the cell surface and in the extra-cellular matrix (ECM) where they have diverse biological functions, for example co-receptor functions. READ MORE

  4. 4. 2-ME-Induced Apoptotic Signalling in Prostate Cancer PC3 Cells

    Author : Padideh Davoodpour; Marene Landström; Michael Welsh; Sten Nilsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; Prostate cancer; 2-methoxyestradiol; apoptosis; shb; Smad7; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer is common in the Western society and current treatments are often associated with side effects, therefore improved therapeutic strategies are desired. 2-methoxyestradiol (2-ME), an endogenous metabolite of estradiol-17β inhibits tumor growth in vivo as it prevents angiogenesis. 2-ME has also direct cytotoxic effects on tumor cells.

  5. 5. The role of Shb in ES cell differentiation, angiogenesis and tumor growth

    Author : Nina Funa; Michael Welsh; Leif Jansson; Lars Holmgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Cell biology; Shb; tyrosine kinase signaling; ES; endoderm; mesoderm; apoptosis; microvasculature; tumor growth; Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Shb is a ubiquitously expressed adaptor protein with the ability to bind several tyrosine kinase receptors and intracellular signaling proteins. Previous studies have implied a wide spectrum of Shb-mediated cellular responses, which motivated me to further investigate the role of Shb in differentiation and angiogenesis. READ MORE
