  1. 1. Insulin signaling in primary adipocytes in insulin sensitive and insulin resistant states

    Author : Siri Aili Fagerholm; Peter Strålfors; Mats Söderström; Ulf Smith; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Increasing numbers of people world-wide develops the disease type 2 diabetes. Development of type 2 diabetes is characterized by a shift from an insulin sensitive state to an insulin resistant state in peripheral insulin responding organs, which originates from the development of insulin resistance in the adipose tissue.

  2. 2. Actions and interactions of insulin-like growth factor-I and insulin in vascular smooth muscle

    Author : Karin E. Bornfeldt; Ulf Smith; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) is a polypeptide with structural and biological similarities with insulin, and the receptors for IGF-I and insulin are homologous. The present investigation was devoted to the actions and interactions of IGF-I and insulin in vascular smooth muscle. READ MORE

  3. 3. High-Resolution Studies of Silicide-films for Nano IC-Components

    Author : Tobias Jarmar; Fredric Ericson; Ulf Smith; Terje Finstad; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Materials science; thin films; titaniumsilicide; nickel-germanosilicide; ternary phase diagram; textured germanosilicide; high resolution materials analysis; Materialvetenskap; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : The function of titanium- and nickel-silicides is to lower the series resistance and contact resistivity in gate, source and drain contacts of an integrated circuit transistor. With decreasing dimensions, the low resistivity C54 TiSi2 is not formed and stays in its high resistivity phase C49. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluation of Splitting Capacity of Bottom Rails in Partially Anchored Timber Frame Shear Walls

    Author : Giuseppe Caprolu; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Träbyggnad; Timber Structures;

    Abstract : The horizontal stabilization of timber frame buildings is oftenprovided by shear walls. Plastic design methods can be used todetermine the load-carrying capacity of fully and partially anchoredshear walls. In order to use these methods, a ductile behaviour of thesheathing-to-framing joint must be ensured. READ MORE
