  3. 3. Exocytosis in insulin secreting cells - role of SNARE-proteins

    Author : Jenny Vikman; Diabetes - öcellsexocytos; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; calcium channel; cAMP; syntaxin 1; SNAP-25; SNARE; exocytosis; Insulin secretion; pancreatic beta-cells;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes is marked by deterioration in pancreatic β-cell function. SNARE-proteins are crucial for the fusion of insulin granules with the plasma membrane, a prerequisite for insulin secretion. READ MORE

  4. 4. Roles of SNAP-25 isoforms in activity-dependent long-term synaptic plasticity

    Author : Muhammad Irfan; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : SNARE proteins, SNAP-25, syntaxin 1A and VAMP2 constitute the functional units which join together to form the core SNARE complex. The SNARE complex carries out the vital function of membrane fusion of intracellular vesicles with plasma membranes, leading to the release of neurotransmitters in brain neuronal circuits and of hormones in endocrine glands.

  5. 5. SNAP-25 and Cdk5 as exocytotic regulators : Consequences for synaptic function and insulin release

    Author : Jenny Johansson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The process by which cells release substances through fusion of vesicles with the plasma membrane is called exocytosis. Regulated exocytosis needs to be tightly controlled in order to respond to the large variation in stimuli and demands for release of neurotransmitters, peptides and hormones. READ MORE
