  1. 16. Discovery of Novel Receptors for Lipid Mediators - a study leading to the identification of receptors involved in metabolism and the immune system

    Author : Niclas Nilsson; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Klinisk biologi; Clinical biology; Thiazolidinedione; SCFA; FFA; FFA2R; FFA1R; GPR43; GPR41; GPR40; BLT2; GPCR; Orphan; Receptor;

    Abstract : Intercellular communication is of crucial importance in regulating physiology and G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) have evolved as an important mechanism in this process. Of the approximately 800 human GPCRs, about 160 are still considered to be “orphan” receptors for which an endogenous ligand remains to be identified. READ MORE

  2. 17. Assessing Holocene and late Pleistocene geomagnetic dipole field variability

    Author : Andreas Nilsson; Kvartärgeologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geomagnetic field; palaeomagnetism; the Holocene; dipole tilt; dipole moment; cosmogenic radionuclides;

    Abstract : Palaeomagnetic studies of continuous geological archives and archaeological artefacts are required to reconstruct geomagnetic field changes beyond the range of historical observations. In this thesis I assess the reliability of sedimentary palaeomagnetic data and Holocene dipole field reconstructions. READ MORE

  3. 18. Allergy to pets : molecular approaches for improved diagnostics and vaccination

    Author : Ola Nilsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : Allergic diseases are a major health problem, affecting up to 30% of the population in affluent countries. Domestic pets such as cats, dogs and horses are among the most common agents of IgE-mediated allergies. READ MORE

  4. 19. Extraction of PCBs from Sediments: Towards Bioavailability Assessment Based on Supercritical Fluid Extraction

    Author : Tobias Nilsson; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Analytisk kemi; Analytical chemistry; Bioavailability; PCB; SFE;

    Abstract : Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) pose serious threats to our global environment. These compounds have high chemical and biological stability and they are also very lipophilic. READ MORE

  5. 20. Genetic analyses of multiple myeloma and related plasma cell dyscrasias

    Author : Therese Nilsson; Avdelningen för klinisk genetik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetik; cytogenetik; cytogenetics; Genetics; FISH; cytogenetic; multiple myeloma; MGUS;

    Abstract : Acquired genetic changes have proved to be of diagnostic and prognostic importance in different hematologic malignancies as well as in some solid tumor types. However, although multiple myeloma (MM), an incurable disease, and its proceeding stage monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) are quite common, little is known about the karyotypic features of these plasma cell dyscrasias.
