    Abstract : Anxiety disorders are very common and the primary feature is abnormal or inappropriate anxiety. Fear and anxiety is often mediated by the amygdala, a brain structure rich in substance P (SP) and neurokinin 1 (NK1) receptors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Gene-Environment Interaction in Adolescent Deviant Behaviour

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kent W. Nilsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurobiology; Adolescent; Alcohol; Criminology; Genes; Environment; Monoamine Oxidase; Serotonin; Social Support; Neurobiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Neurobiology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Neurobiologi;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to explore gene-environmental (G*E) interactions in relation to deviant behaviour among 200 Swedish adolescents, with a focus on criminality, alcohol consumption and depressive symptoms. Those behaviours have been extensively investigated in relation to both psychosocial and biological risk factors. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessment of therapeutic targets in experimental models of Myc-induced lymphoma

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University, Department of Molecular Biology

    Author : Linus Plym Forshell; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cancer; Myc; Decitabine; Pim kinase; RCAS-tva; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Neurobiology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Neurobiologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : The Myc transcription factor activates expression of genes that promote cellular functions such as proliferation and cell growth. The deregulated Myc expression, characteristic for the tumor cell, also activates apoptosis, which selects for additional genetic changes deactivating the induced cell death. READ MORE

  4. 4. Gene Expression in the Brains of Two Lines of Chicken Divergently Selected for High and Low Body Weight

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sojeong Ka; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chicken; juvenile body weight; divergent selection; gene expression; DNA microarray; quantitiative RT-PCR; hypothalamus; neural plasticity; melanocortin system; endogenous retrovirus; carnitine palmitoyltransferase-1b; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Neurobiology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Neurobiologi; medicinsk utvecklings- och neurobiologi; Developmental Neurosciences;

    Abstract : Artificial divergent selection of chickens for high and low body weight at 8 weeks of age has produced two lines: the high (HWS) and low (LWS) body weight chicken lines. In addition to the difference in body weight, the lines show extreme differences in feeding behaviour and body composition. READ MORE

  5. 5. On dopamine neurons nerve fiber outgrowth and L-DOPA effects

    University dissertation from Umeå : Integrativ medicinsk biologi

    Author : Sara af Bjerkén; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dopamine; nerve fiber outgrowth; astrocytes; ventral mesencephalon; GDNF; L-DOPA; L-DOPA induced dyskinesia; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Neurobiology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease is a disorder mainly characterized by progressive degeneration of dopamine producing neurons in the substantia nigra of the midbrain. The most commonly used treatment strategy is to pharmacologically restore the lost function by the administration of the dopaminergic precursor L-DOPA. READ MORE
