  1. 1. Glucotoxicity in Insulin-Producing β-Cells

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Hanna K Nyblom; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Cell biology; type 2 diabetes; SELDI-TOF MS; glucotoxicity; proteomics; insulin secretion; mitochondria; lipids; INS-1E cells; GC-MS; HR-MAS NMR; metabolomics; human islet; AMPK; AICAR; ER stress; apoptosis; Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Background and aims: Type 2 diabetes mellitus is connected with elevated glucose levels, which cause impaired glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS) and degeneration of β-cells. Mechanisms for such glucotoxic effects were explored in the present study.Materials and methods: INS-1E cells were cultured for 5 days in 5. READ MORE

  2. 2. Protein Profiling and Type 2 Diabetes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tea Sundsten; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Cell biology; Type 2 diabetes; Protein profiling; SELDI-TOF MS; Proteomics; Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a heterogeneous disease affecting millions of people worldwide. Both genetic and environmental factors contribute to the pathogenesis. The disease is characterized by alterations in many genes and their products. READ MORE

  3. 3. Helicobacter pylori cell surface interactions with glycosaminoglycans. Identification and characterisation of proteins binding to heparin/heparan sulphate

    University dissertation from Meeme Utt, MMDI, University of Lund, Sölvegatan 23, S-223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Meeme Utt; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SELDI-TOF MS; bioinformatics; proteomics; immunoblotting; 2-DE; biosensor; heparan sulphate; heparin; binding; Helicobacter pylori; cell surface; bakteriologi; Mikrobiologi; mycology; bacteriology; Microbiology; mykologi; virologi; virology;

    Abstract : Helicobacter pylori is a gastric pathogen which cause chronic type B gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. H. pylori produces virulence factors such as urease, vacuolating cytotoxin VacA, cag pathogenicity island-associated proteins, flagella and adhesins. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies of Eosinophil Cationic Protein (ECP) in vivo and in vitro Impact of Genetic and Posttranslational Modifications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jenny Eriksson; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Biomedicine; Eosinophil granulocyte; granular protein; ECP; gene polymorphism; cytotoxicity; SELDI-TOF MS; glycosylation; molecular and functional heterogeneity; fibrosis; Biomedicin;

    Abstract : Eosinophil granulocytes are tissue dwelling leukocytes that are implicated in host defence, particularly against helminthic parasites; they also participate in most inflammatory disorders. Although eosinophils have important roles in host defence mechanisms, their actions can also be harmful to the host as in the allergic inflammation where lung epithelium is destructed due to the release of toxic granule proteins.

  5. 5. Early Diagnosis of Epithelial Ovarian Cancer - Analysis of Novel Biomarkers

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Björg Kristjansdottir; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epithelial Ovarian Cancer; Ovarian cyst fluid; Tumor biomarkers; Proteomics; Pelvic mass; Mass Spectometry; SELDI-TOF MS; iTRAQ;

    Abstract : Early Diagnosis of Epithelial Ovarian Cancer - Analysis of Novel Biomarkers Björg Kristjánsdóttir Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Institute of Clinical Sciences at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden ABSTRACT Background: Majority of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is detected in advanced stage with bad prognosis and high mortality. Reliable diagnostic markers are lacking, pre-cancerous lesions in the more aggressive tumors are not clearly defined, vague or unspecific early symptoms, and the localization of the ovaries, deep in the pelvis contributes to late diagnose.
