  4. 4. New insights in parathyroid hormone secretion : with focus on exocytosis and calcium signaling

    Author : Ming Lu; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

It is generally considered that extracellular Ca2+ binds to a membrane receptor (calcium sensing receptor, or CaSR), and via second messengers modulate parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pit lakes from sulphide ore mining, geochemical and limnological characterization before treatment, after liming and sewage sludge treatments : cases studies at Rävlidmyran and Udden, Sweden

    Abstract : Due to the increasing number of acidic mining-pit lakes and a growing awareness of the environmental risks associated with them, pit lakes have attracted more and more attention. This study started with a full-year- round investigation of two abandoned sulphide mine pit lakes, the Rävlidmyran and Udden pit lakes in northern Sweden, followed by studies of two full-scale remediation treatments, liming and sewage sludge treatment, respectively, in the Rävlidmyran pit lake.
