  1. 1. Studies of sulfatide expression in relation to beta cell function

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Maria K. Blomqvist; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; sulfatide; glycosphingolipid; insulin; beta cell; diabetes mellitus; animal models; beta cell line;

    Abstract : Previous studies have shown that the glycosphingolipid sulfatide (3´-sulfogalactosyl-ceramide) is present and functionally involved in pancreatic beta cells. In these cells, sulfatide is synthesised as two major isoforms, C16:0 and C24:0 sulfatide, with different length of the fatty acid chain of the ceramide moiety. READ MORE

  2. 2. Maf transcription factors in beta cell function

    University dissertation from Stem Cell Center, Lund University

    Author : Elvira Ganic; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Beta cell; MafA; type 2 diabetes; insulin secretion; transcription; monoamine oxidase; MaoA; MaoB; nicotinic receptor subunits; nAChRs;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), 415 million people suffer from diabetes worldwide. Diabetes occurs when the pancreatic beta cells are no longer able to produce or properly use insulin. Insulin regulates blood glucose levels by enabling glucose uptake into cells, providing the body with energy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies of neuropeptides in pancreatic beta cell function with special emphasis on islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP)

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ella Karlsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; alpha cell; amylin; beta cell; chromogranin; growth; IAPP; insulin; islet amyloid polypeptide; leptin; NOD mice; pancreastatin; pancreatic islet; proliferation; Cellbiologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi; medicinsk cellbiologi; Medical Cell Biology;

    Abstract : The presence of protein amyloid in pancreas and its association to diabetes was first described 100 years ago in 1901, but was not identified as Islet Amyloid Polypeptide (IAPP) until 1986. The aim of the present work was to determine the role of the beta cell hormone, IAPP, in normal pancreatic islet physiology and during early disturbances of islet function. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Impact of Pancreatic Islet Vascular Heterogeneity on Beta Cell Function and Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sara Ullsten; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pancreatic islets; heterogeneity; islet vascularity; blood flow; islet transplantation; islet amyloid; insulitis; type 1 diabetes; beta cell proliferation; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Diabetes Mellitus is a group of complex and heterogeneous metabolic disorders characterized by hyperglycemia. Even though the condition has been extensively studied, its causes and complex pathologies are still not fully understood. The occurring damage to the pancreatic islets is strikingly heterogeneous.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Internationella diabetesförbundet räknar med att en tiondel av världens befolkning kommer att ha någon form av diabetes om 50 år. Diabetes är en sjukdom med global spridning som innebär att kroppen inte kan ta hand om all den näring man intar, framförallt inte sockret. READ MORE
