  1. 1. Growth factor regulation of the urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) system in human endometrium, and the significance of uPA receptor activation in endometrial angiogenesis

    University dissertation from Institutionen för Obstetrik och gynekologi, Universitetssjukhuset, 22185 Lund

    Author : Tove Sandberg; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstetrics; endothelial cell migration; angiogenesis; uPA:PAI-1 complex; uPAR; TGF-beta; PAI-1; EGF; uPA; Growth factor; gynaecology; andrology; reproduction; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Avhandlingen studerar tillväxtfaktorernas reglering av uPA-systemet i endometriet, och betydelsen av uPA-receptorns (uPAR) aktivering i den endometriella angiogenesen. Tillväxtfaktorer är polypeptider, vilka fungerar som signalmolekyler i cellernas kommunikation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor 1 in Platelets - Studies of Synthesis, Activity, and Glycosylation Patterns

    University dissertation from Institutionen för Obstetrik och gynekologi, Universitetssjukhuset, 22185 Lund

    Author : Helén Brogren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PAI-1; platelets; plasma; fibrinolysis; synthesis; polymorphism; glycosylation; activity; platelet mRNA;

    Abstract : Plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 (PAI-1) is the main physiological inhibitor of tissue-type plasminogen activator. Thus PAI-1 plays an important role in decreasing the fibrinolytic activity in human blood. PAI-1 is present in high concentrations in platelets and also in low concentrations in plasma, but the source of plasma PAI-1 is not known. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aspects of Plasminiogen Activator Inhibitor 1 in Metabolic Syndrome

    University dissertation from Institutionen för Obstetrik och gynekologi, Universitetssjukhuset, 22185 Lund

    Author : Karin Mossberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PAI-1; metabolic syndrome; obesity; type 2 diabetes; cardiovascular disease; fibrinolysis; thrombi; plasma; platelets; adipose tissue; mRNA; qPCR; reference gene;

    Abstract : Plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 (PAI-1) is the main inhibitor of the fibrinolytic system and binds irreversibly to tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA), and thereby inhibits the protective action of t-PA against thrombus formation. Elevated levels of plasma PAI-1 is observed in subjects with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and the metabolic syndrome (MetS), which is a combination of metabolic features including obesity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 and the Insulin Resistance Syndrome

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Liisa Byberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; PAI-1; insulin sensitivity; physical activity; birth weight; fatty acids; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Geriatrics; geriatrik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, different aspects of the insulin resistance syndrome in relation to plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) activity are investigated in a longitudinal population-based study. Participants were men investigated at ages 50 and 70 with follow-up data on mortality. READ MORE

  5. 5. Remodelling of extracellular matrix in rectal cancer and preoperative radiotherapy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Angenete; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; radiotherapy; rectal cancer; extracellular matrix; MMP-2; PAI-1; uPA; Calprotectin; TGF-beta1;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND Preoperative radiotherapy reduces local recurrence due to rectal cancer, but increases postoperative morbidity. The aim of this thesis was to study the impact of radiotherapy on extracellular matrix (ECM) remodelling enzymes and growth factors after radiotherapy and also their possible use as surrogate markers for complications.
