  1. 1. Proximity Ligation Assay for High Performance Protein Analysis in Medicine

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gucci Jijuan Gu; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein; post-translational modification; interactions; protein domain; western blotting; MARK; tau; AD; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biotechnology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär bioteknik;

    Abstract : High quality reagents are preconditions for high performance protein analyses. But despite progress in some techniques, e.g. mass spectrometry, there is still a lack of affinity-based detection techniques with enhanced precision, specificity, and sensitivity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Proximity Ligation and Barcoding Assays Tools for analysis of proteins and protein complexes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Di Wu; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; proximity ligation assay; proximity barcoding assay; sensitive; in situ; multiplex; profiling; amyloid-beta; MARK; tau; CSF; biomarker; protein complexes; Alzheimer’s disease; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; Molekylär medicin; Molecular Medicine;

    Abstract : Proteins are fundamental structural, enzymatic and regulatory components of cells. Analysis of proteins, such as by measuring their concentrations, characterizing their modifications, and detecting their interactions, provides insights in how biological systems work physiologically or pathologically at the molecular level.

  3. 3. Neurodegenerative Biomarkers in Healthy Elderly - with special reference to the preclinical pattern of biological and cognitive markers for Alzheimer’s disease

    University dissertation from Clinical Memory Research Unit, Lund University

    Author : Erik Stomrud; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cerebral blood flow; EEG; phosphorylated tau protein; amyloid beta protein; tau protein; cerebrospinal fluid; biomarkers; preclinical Alzheimer s disease; Alzheimer s disease; MCI; dementia; SPECT; memory; cognition; early diagnosis; control groups;

    Abstract : Background: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by tau and amyloid brain pathology. With the gradual degeneration of neurons, cognitive symptoms will arise and the affected individual will eventually develop AD dementia. READ MORE

  4. 4. Beta-amyloid, tau-protein and cystatin C in the pathophysiology of Alzheimer´s disease

    University dissertation from Divison of Clinical Chemistry and Pharmacology, Lund University

    Author : Maj-Linda Selenica; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurology; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Medicin människa och djur ; Clinical chemistry; Klinisk kemi; Kinase inhibitors; Tau protein; Cystatin C; Glycogen Synthase Kinase; Alzheimers Disease; Amyloid beta;

    Abstract : Alzheimer´s Disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative dementia characterized by the extracellular accumulation of the beta-amyloid (Ab) peptide into plaques and intracellular phosphorylation and accumulation of tau protein into neurofibrillary tangles (NFT). Inflammation due to astrocytic and microglial activation is one of the ongoing processes in the disease giving rise to cytokine production and oxidative stress. READ MORE

  5. 5. Tau fragments: role as biomarkers and in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease and other tauopathies

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Claudia Cicognola; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tau; fragments; Alzheimer s disease; tauopathy; cerebrospinal fluid;

    Abstract : Abstract Tau protein is physiologically expressed in neurons, where it is involved in microtubule assembly and stability. Tau functions are rigorously regulated by a series of modifications, e.g. phosphorylation and dephosphorylation. READ MORE
