  1. 1. Human muscle spindles complex morphology and structural organisation

    Author : Jing-Xia Liu; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : human; muscle spindIe; intrafusal fiber; aging; biceps brachii; deep muscles of the neck; MyHC; mATPase; SERCA; Human Anatomy; anatomi; muscle spindle;

    Abstract : Muscle spindles are skeletal muscle mechanoreceptors that mediate the stretch reflex and provide axial and limb position information to the central nervous system. They have been proposed to play a major role in the pathophysiology of muscle pain. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human extraocular muscles molecular diversity of a unique muscle allotype

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Daniel Kjellgren; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ophtalmology; extraocular; muscle; myosin; protein c; laminin; serca; immunocytochemistry; human; Oftalmiatrik; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Ophtalmology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Oftalmologi; oftalmiatrik; Ophtalmology;

    Abstract : Introduction: The extraocular muscles (EOMs) are considered a separate class of skeletal muscle, allotype. Myosin is the major contractile protein in muscle. The myosin heavy chain (MyHC) isoforms are the best molecular markers of functional heterogeneity of muscle fibers. READ MORE

  3. 3. ATP Dynamics in Pancreatic α- and β-cells

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jia Li; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ATP; Ca2 ; β-cell; α-cell; SERCA; SOCE; muscarinic receptor; insulin secretion; glucagon secretion; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Glucose metabolism in pancreatic α- and β-cells is believed to regulate secretion of glucagon and insulin, respectively. In β-cells, ATP links glucose metabolism to electrical activity and insulin secretion. READ MORE

  4. 4. Physiological changes in mice deficient in different subtypes of thyroid hormone receptors : a focus on studies of heart and muscle

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Author : Catarina Johansson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; heart rate; ECG; body temperature; [beta]-adrenergic receptor density; thyroid hormone; isometric twitch; SERCa;

    Abstract : The aim of these studies was to determing the specific roles of the different subtypes of thyroid hormone receptors (TR), with focus on heart and muscle function, by using mice deficient in TR[alpha]1, TR[beta] (both TR[beta]1 and TR[beta]2 subtypes) and TR[alpha]1/[beta]. For this purpose, new techniques were set up to study various physiological parameters in these mice. READ MORE

  5. 5. Characterization of membrane protein active transport under native-like conditions

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Harsha Ravishankar; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biologisk fysik; Biological Physics;

    Abstract : P-type ATPase proteins are a family of membrane proteins that maintain concentration gradients of e.g. ions by ATP-driven transport across the membrane. While these transporters share many features in their molecular architecture, structural differences are required to convey ion specificity. READ MORE
