  1. 1. The role of PKC in neuronal differentiation and in regulation of the actin cytoskeleton during neurite outgrowth

    University dissertation from Ulrika Trollér, Entr. 78, 3rd floor, U-MAS, S-205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Ulrika Trollér; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cytogenetics; Genetik; cytogenetik; Rho-family; actin cytoskeleton; neurite; differentiation; PKC; regulatory domain; Genetics;

    Abstract : Protein kinase C (PKC) is a family of serine/threonine kinases subgrouped into classical (α, βI, βII, γ), novel (δ, ε, η, θ) and atypical (ζ, ι/λ) isoforms. PKC can be activated by phorbol esters, and prolonged treatment of neuroblastoma cells has been shown to induce neuronal differentiation with neurite outgrowth and increased expression of neuronal genes.

  2. 2. The expression and function of protein kinase C isoforms in differentiating neuroblastoma cells

    University dissertation from Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Sofia Fagerström; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurologi; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; Neurology; p130cas; PKC; fte-1; neuroblastoma; SH-SY5Y cells; growth cones; neuronal differentiation; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : The human neuroblastoma cell line SH-SY5Y can be induced to differentiate into a neuronal sympathetic phenotype after treatment with 16 nM 12-O-tetradecanoyl phorbol 13-acetate (TPA) in serum, or by a combination of the growth factors basic fibroblast growth factor and insulin-like growth factor-I (bFGF/IGF-I). SH-SY5Y cells stably transfected with TrkA, the nerve growth factor (NGF) receptor, differentiate in response to NGF. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effects of ethanol on muscarinic acetylcholine receptors in nerve cells

    University dissertation from Murielle Hellsten Caron, Medical Neurochemistry, Lund University Hospital, 221 85 Lund

    Author : Murielle Hellsten Caron; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Klinisk kemi; Clinical chemistry; nerve cell; SH-SY5Y; NOS; PKC; PLC; Ethanol; mAChR;

    Abstract : This thesis focused on the mechanisms involved in the effects of long-term ethanol treatment on mAChRs and their coupled-signal transduction pathway in human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells. All 5 subtypes of mAChRs were expressed in these cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. Teratogenicity Involved in Experimental Diabetic Pregnancy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mattias Gäreskog; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Cell biology; Diabetes; Pregnancy; PKC; Apoptosis; Rat; Embryopathy; Vitamin E; Folic acid; CHC; NAC; Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Maternal diabetes is associated with increased risk of growth disturbances and congenital malformations. The malformations rate in the offspring of diabetic mothers is 2-3 fold higher compared to infants of nondiabetic mothers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regeneration of Peripheral Nerves. The role of protein kinases, with emphasis on neurotrophic factor stimulation

    University dissertation from Peter Wiklund, Zenithgatan 3 SE-212 14 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Peter Wiklund; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NT-4; NT-3; NGF; MAPK; PKG; PKA; PKC; nodose ganglion; DRG; conditioning effect; neurotrophic factors; protein kinases; peripheral; nerve regeneration; BDNF; GDNF; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of protein kinases in peripheral nerve regeneration, with the use of dorsal root ganglia (DRG) and nodose ganglia explants from adult mice. The effects of neurotrophic factor stimulation and protein kinase inhibition were studied for long (days) and short term (minutes) effects. READ MORE
