    Abstract : A balanced tear film is essential for a healthy ocular surface. Insufficient tear production may result in dry eye, a common disorder in the elderly population. Dry eye causes significant discomfort in the patients and may lead to visual impairment and ocular infections. READ MORE

  2. 2. Local Purinergic Control of Arteriolar Reactivity in Pancreatic Islets and Renal Glomeruli

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Xiang Gao; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; afferent arteriole; islet arteriole; adenosine; A1 receptor; ATP; P2Y receptor; microperfusion; angiotensin II; type 2 diabetes; hypertension; oxidative stress; nitric oxide; tubuloglomerular feedback;

    Abstract : Local control of regional blood flow is exerted mainly through the arterioles. An adequate minute-to-minute regulation of blood perfusion of the kidney and the pancreas is obtained by the modulation of arteriolar reactivity, which will influence the organ function. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adenosine receptor/dopamine receptor interactions : Molecular and biochemical aspects

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Maria Torvinen; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adenosine; adenosine deaminase; A; receptor; A2A receptor; cell line; coimmunoprecipitation; confocal microscopy; dopamine; D1 receptor; D2 receptor; D3 receptor; heteromerization; internalisation; radioligand binding;

    Abstract : The dopamine receptors have been shown to be involved in a variety of higher brain functions, such as motor control, cognition and affective states. Agonist and antagonists of dopamine receptors are widely used to treat disorders such as Parkinson's disease and schizophrenia, respectively. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Influence of the Adenosine A1-receptor on Tubuloglomerular Feedback and Renin Release

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Russell Brown; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology; adenosine; tubuloglomerular feedback; renin release; blood pressure; micropuncture; Fysiologi; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi;

    Abstract : The kidneys play a vital role in the maintenance of extracellular fluid and electrolyte balance and blood pressure. Adenosine, acting through the adenosine A1-receptor (A1R), and nitric oxide have been implicated in several of the regulatory mechanisms in the kidney. READ MORE

  5. 5. Behavioural and biochemical pharmacology of adenosine/dopamine receptor/receptor interaction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Roberto Rimondini-Giorgini; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]

    Abstract : The neurotransmitter dopamine seems to be involved in neuropsychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia and Parkinson's disease. Direct blockade of dopamine receptors of the D2 subtype has been the hallmark of pharmacotherapy for schizophrenia since early 1950s. READ MORE
