  1. 1. Teleost retina a model for study neurogenesis and angiogenesis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska instiutet

    Author : Satish Srinivas Kitambi; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; Södertörns högskola.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Teleost models, zebrafish and medaka have become popular models to study various aspects of developmental biology and genetics. The rapid embryonic development, transparent embryos and the availability of many mutants for various developmental and molecular pathways contribute to the usefulness of these models. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experimental Injury to the Visual System Molecular Studies of the Retina

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : Retinal ganglion cells play a crucial role in the relay of visual signals from the eye to the brain. This cell type is affected and eventually lost in the eye disease glaucoma, resulting in progressive and irreversible loss of vision. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effects of gold- and silver nanoparticles on the retina

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Biology

    Author : Patrik Maximilian Bauer; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-11]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microglia; Retina; In vitro; Nanoparticles;

    Abstract : Over the past decade, a massive increase in the use of nanomaterials and nanoparticles (NPs) in both commercial and medical applications has occurred. Medical applications include advanced drug delivery vehicles, imaging and hyper thermic therapies. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biochemical and biomechanical modulation of the in vitro retina

    University dissertation from Ophthalmology (Lund), Lund University

    Author : Linnéa Taylor; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Retina; in vitro; modulation; biomechanics; glutamate; GDNF; stretch; Müller cells; Photoreceptors; gliosis;

    Abstract : The porcine retinal explant culture paradigm offers the possibility to study retinal health, disease and development independently from the surrounding tissues of the eye. Retina-intrinsic effects of molecular and mechanical cues on the isolated retinal sheet can thus be studied with great precision. READ MORE

  5. 5. Control of early development of the lens and the retina

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Tanushree Pandit; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lens; retina; BMP; FGF; chick; Developmental Biology; miljömedicinsk utvecklingsbiologi;

    Abstract : The nervous system is composed of two separate compartments, the central and the peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nervous system (PNS) composed mainly of sensory organs transmits sensory information to the central nervous system (CNS) comprising the brain and the spinal cord. READ MORE
