  1. 1. Prostasome Modulation of Blood Cascade System and Phosphoprotein Reactions with Focus on Prostate Cancer

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Adil Abdelgadir Babiker; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; ATPase; CD59; Complement; DU145; Extracellular phosphorylation; LNCaP; PC-3; Prostasomes; Prostate cancer; Protein kinases; Tissue factor; Immunologi; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Immunology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Immunologi;

    Abstract : Prostasomes are extracellularly occurring submicron, membrane-surrounded organelles produced by the epithelial cells of the prostate and present in semen. Their precise physiological role is not known, although some of their properties assign them to important physiological and patho-physiological functions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Perspectives on the Biological Role of Human Prostasomes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lena Carlsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Prostasomes; cryopreservation; human spermatozoa; sperm motility; anti- prostasome antibodies; PC-3 cells; Bacillus megaterium; antibacterial; antisperm antibodies; complement activation; sperm agglutination; infertility; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : Prostasomes are extracellularly occurring organelles which are secreted in human semen by the prostate gland. Prostasomes have several known biological activities, but their physiological function is still unclear. In this thesis some new aspects were studied on the biological role of the prostasomes.

  3. 3. Some Characteristics of Human Prostasomes and Their Relationship to Prostate Cancer

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Göran Ronquist; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostasomes; prostate; prostate cancer; clusterin; antibodies; metastasis; exosomes; PC-3 cells; DNA vehicles; gene therapy; immunoblotting; mass spectrometry; agarose gel electrophoresis; vertebral metastasis.; MEDICINE Chemistry Clinical chemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Klinisk kemi; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : Background: The secretory epithelial cells of the prostate gland use sophisticated vehicles named prostasomes to relay important information to sperm cells in semen. This prostasome-forming and secretory ability of the epithelial cells is also preserved in poorly differentiated prostate cancer cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. Replication-competent adenovirus 11p vector as a new oncolytic agent

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jim Silver; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Virologi; Adenovirus; Vector; mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Human adenoviruses (Ads) as vectors have been studied for cancer gene therapy for several decades due to their ability to shut down host cell replication and lyse tumour cells. Ad5 of species C is commonly used as a replication-defective or a replication-competent vector. READ MORE

  5. 5. Prostate cancer and bone cell interactions implications for metastatic growth and therapy

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Annika Nordstrand; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; onkologi; Oncology;

    Abstract : The skeleton is the most common site of prostate cancer bone metastasis, and at present, there are no curable treatments for these patients. To further understand what stimulates tumor cell growth in the bone microenvironment and to find suitable therapies, reliable model systems are needed. READ MORE
