  1. 1. Novel Interactors of X-linked Inhibitor of Apoptosis Protein Expression and Effects on Tumor Cell Death

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Håkan Steen; Dan Lindholm; Bertrand Joseph; [2008]
    Keywords : Neurobiology; XIAP; tumor cell death; apoptosis; caspases; basic helix-loop-helix protein; Neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Programmed cell death, or apoptosis, has during the last decade received a lot of attention due to its involvement in a large number of pathological conditions. Since death is always irreversible, it is important for cells to fully control the initiation and execution of this process. READ MORE

  2. 2. Apoptosis-related mechanisms in the immature brain after hypoxia-ischemia

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Xiaoyang Wang; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hypoxia-ischemia; neonatal; caspase; ERK; XIAP; EPO; asialoEPO; brain;

    Abstract : Aims: To characterize the activation of caspases-3 and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) in the neonatal brain after hypoxia-ischemia (HI) injury and evaluate the neuroprotective effect of X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP) protein, erythropoietin (EPO) and the non-erythropoietic derivative asialoEPO. Methods: Seven-day-old rats or 9-day-old mice were subjected to HI. READ MORE

  3. 3. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis – A Study in Transgenic Mice

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Hanna Wootz; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Neurosciences; ALS; Caspase; Caspase-12; Cathepsin; Cystatin; ER stress; Motor neuron; Neurodegeneration; Sod1; XIAP; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease with an incidence of 1.5-2.7/100000 people/year. Today there is no cure for the disease and only symptomatic treatments are available. READ MORE

  4. 4. Anti-Apoptotic Proteins in Nerve Cell Survival and Neurodegeneration

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Laura Korhonen; Marja Jäättelä; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; neuronal cell death; XIAP; RIAP-2; Hippocalcin; Bcl-2; Bcl-X; kainic acid; DRG; estrogen; Neurovetenskap; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Neurology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Neurologi; Developmental Neurosciences; medicinsk utvecklings- och neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Apoptosis is a genetically regulated cell death program, which shows distinct morphological characteristics. It takes place during neuronal development and in some neurodegenerative diseases. During apoptosis, the intracellular proteins are degraded by various caspases, cysteine aspartases, which are regulated by pro- and anti-apoptotic signals. READ MORE

  5. 5. Caspase activation in human neuroblastoma cells: mechanisms and spatiotemporal aspects

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Neurochemistry

    Author : Elena V. Ivanova; Kerstin Iverfeldt; Boris Zhivotovsky; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; apoptosis; caspase; local caspase activation; neurodegeneration; tau-anchored FRET sensors; tAFS; cancer; neuroblastoma; TNF-related apoptosis inducing ligand; TRAIL; protein kinase C; PKC; X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein; XIAP; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Abstract : Apoptosis is one of the modes of programmed cell death, in which several members of the caspase family of proteases play the central role. However, activation of apoptotic caspases does not necessarily lead to cell death. READ MORE
