  2. 2. The neurotoxin β-N-methylamino-L-alanine (BMAA) : Sources, bioaccumulation and extraction procedures

    Author : Sandra Ferreira Lage; Sara Rydberg; Ulla Rasmussen; Hanna Mazur-Marzec; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Plant Physiology; växtfysiologi;

    Abstract : β-methylamino-L-alanine (BMAA) is a neurotoxin linked to neurodegeneration, which is manifested in the devastating human diseases amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. This neurotoxin is known to be produced by almost all tested species within the cyanobacterial phylum including free living as well as the symbiotic strains. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hypothyroidism and Pregnancy

    Author : Michaela Granfors; Anna-Karin Wikström; Inger Sundström-Poromaa; Helena Åkerud; Ulla Feldt-Rasmussen; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Hypothyroidism is a common endocrine disorder affecting women of reproductive age. On a global level, iodine deficiency is still the most common cause of hypothyroidism. Also genetic variations, in particular SNP rs4704397 in the PDE8B gene, are responsible for a significant proportion of TSH variations. READ MORE

    Abstract : Neurotoxinet β -N-metylamino -L-alanin (BMAA) anses vara en potentiell miljöriskfaktor för utvecklingen av den neurodegenerativa sjukdomen amyotrofisk lateralskleros (ALS) och har en potentiell roll i flertalet andra neurodegenerativa sjukdomar. Sedan 2003, då det upptäcktes att BMAA produceras av den symbiotiska cyanobakterien Nostoc punctiforme  har flera andra BMAA producerande cyanobakteriearter identifierats. READ MORE
