  1. 1. Wnt-5a signaling in breast cancer metastasis

    University dissertation from Division of Experimental Pathology, Department of Laboratory Medicine Malmö

    Author : Annette Säfholm; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Patologi allmän ; patologisk anatomi; General pathology; cancer; onkologi; Cytologi; breast cancer; Wnt-5a; migration; pathological anatomy; metastasis; signal transduction; peptides; Cytology; cancerology; oncology;

    Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common form of malignancy affecting women in the Western world. Today, anticancer treatment can control primary breast tumors, but treatment and prevention of metastatic disease still represents a major challenge in the management of breast cancer patients.

  2. 2. Analysis of signaling pathway activity in single cells using the in situ Proximity Ligation Assay

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Linda Arngården; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cell signaling; Wnt; Hippo; TGFB; Molekylär medicin; Molecular Medicine;

    Abstract : A cell that senses signals from its environment uses proteins for signal transduction via post translational modifications (PTMs) and protein- protein interactions (PPIs) from cell membrane into the nucleus where genes controlling cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis can be turned on or off, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bone and Cartilage Regeneration: Wnt Signaling Pathway in Healing

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Thorfve; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Wnt signaling pathway; Osteoarthritis; Bone regeneration; Lithium;

    Abstract : The Wnt signaling pathway plays a central role in bone and cartilage embryonic development, processes that are recapitulated during regeneration. Imbalance in such well conserved and complex system often contributes to numerous diseases, whereas controlled modulation of the Wnt signaling activity is an attractive target e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wnt/β-catenin Signaling and Epigenetic Deregulation in Breast Cancer and Parathyroid Tumours

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jessica Svedlund; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Wnt signaling; parathyroid; epigenetic; Medicin; Medicine; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : The Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway is often deregulated in cancer. Here we investigate Wnt/β-catenin signaling, aberrant accumulation of β-catenin, and epigenetic deregulation in breast cancer and parathyroid tumours. READ MORE

  5. 5. Wnt signaling and metaphyseal bone healing

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Fredrik Agholme; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : This thesis relates to some new aspects on the regulation of bone healing. In the last few years, Wnt-signaling has been shown to play a central role in bone biology. As well as being involved in bone maintenance and repair, Wnt-signaling has been presented as one of the key pathways through which bone responds to mechanical load. READ MORE
