  1. 1. Molecular studies of hypothalamic food intake regulating systems and central myelination in two anorectic mouse models

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Ulrika Bergström; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to increase the understanding of the hypothalamic mechanisms that are vital for food intake regulation, in particular as it relates to anorexia, and the molecular mechanisms underlying myelination and nodal/paranodal domain organization. The majority of the thesis concerns the anorectic phenotype of two mouse models for which we have found both great similarities and differences pointing to different mechanisms generating similar symptoms and neuropeptidergic alterations.

    Abstract : Osteoporosis-related fracture is already today a major public health problem and the number of hip fractures is expected to double to 2030. Sweden has one of the highest hip fracture incidences worldwide. This may be explained by several factors: e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. In Vitro Studies of Adrenocorticolytic DDT Metabolites, with Special Focus on 3-methylsulfonyl-DDE

    University dissertation from Uppsala, Sweden : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Vendela Asp; Ingvar Brandt; Ulrika Bergström; Olle Söder; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Toxicity; 3-methylsulfonyl-DDE; CYP; adrenal cortex; metabolic activation; steroid hormones; Y-1; H295R; mitotane; adrenocortical carcinoma; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Toxicology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Toxikologi; Biologi med inriktning mot ekotoxikologi; Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology;

    Abstract : The DDT metabolite 3-methylsulfonyl-DDE (3-MeSO2-DDE) is bioactivated by cytochrome P450 11B1 (CYP11B1) in the adrenal cortex of mice and forms irreversibly bound protein adducts, reduces glucocorticoid secretion, and induces cell death selectively in cortisol-producing adrenocortical cells. 3-MeSO2-DDE has therefore been proposed as a lead compound for an improved adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) therapy.

  4. 4. Deadlift training for patients with mechanical low back pain a comparison of the effects of a high-load lifting exercise and individualized low-load motor control exercises

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Lars Berglund; Ulrika Aasa; Peter Michaelson; Lillemor Lundin-Olsson; Ulrica Bergström; Hannu Luomajoki; [2016]

    Abstract : Urinary bladder cancer is a heterogeneous disease appearing in different forms, e.g. non-muscle invasive and muscle invasive. For all variants, the expression of proteins is interesting to analyze for diagnostic, predictive, prognostic and drug targeting purposes, since it reflects the altered gene expression causing the cancer.
