  1. 1. Hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells and potentials for application in fetal cell replacement therapy

    University dissertation from Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Lund University

    Author : Karina Liuba; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; in utero hematopoietic cell transplantation; hematopoietic stem cell; multipotent progenitor; fetal therapy; heterotypic cell fusion;

    Abstract : Fetal cell replacement therapy or in utero hematopoietic cell transplantation (IUHCT) is proposed as a non-myeloablative alternative to bone marrow transplantation (BMT) for a number of inborn immunologic, hematologic and metabolic disorders. IUHCT represents the method through which variable amounts of natural or genetically modified hematopoietic cells can be transferred to the fetal recipient in hope of correcting the disorder and preventing postnatal permanent organ damage.

  2. 2. Regulation of Hematopoietic Stem and Progenitor Cells by Bone Marrow Niche Components

    University dissertation from Hematopoietic Stem Cell Laboratory, Lund Strategic Research Center for Stem Cell Biology and Cell Therapy

    Author : Hong Qian; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stem cell; Hematologi; extracellular fluids; Haematology; bone marrow; Hematopoiesis; extracellulära vätskor;

    Abstract : Throughout the lifespan of an individual, enormous numbers of mature blood cells are generated by hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) in the bone marrow (BM). The HSC is a cell that can self-renew to maintain the HSC pool and differentiate into all types of mature blood cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cardiomyocyte Cell Cycle, Renewal and Isolation

    University dissertation from Cardiovascular Laboratory, Center for Stem Cell Biology, Lund

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; binucleation; Cardiomyocytes; surface marker; troponin-T; mitosis; microarray; cell cycle; FACS;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Hjärtsjukdom som orsakas av skador på hjärtmuskelceller är en av de vanligaste dödsorsakerna världen över. En framtida önskvärd behandling vore att kunna stimulera kroppens egna förmåga att återskapa hjärtmuskelceller, eller att isolera hjärtmuskelceller framställda i cellkultur. READ MORE

  4. 4. Maf transcription factors in beta cell function

    University dissertation from Stem Cell Center, Lund University

    Author : Elvira Ganic; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Beta cell; MafA; type 2 diabetes; insulin secretion; transcription; monoamine oxidase; MaoA; MaoB; nicotinic receptor subunits; nAChRs;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), 415 million people suffer from diabetes worldwide. Diabetes occurs when the pancreatic beta cells are no longer able to produce or properly use insulin. Insulin regulates blood glucose levels by enabling glucose uptake into cells, providing the body with energy. READ MORE

  5. 5. Maf and Mitf transcription factors regulate pancreatic endocrine cell differentiation and function

    University dissertation from Stem Cell Center, Lund University

    Author : Magdalena Mazur; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pancreas development; beta cells; insulin; MafA; MafB; Mitf; diabetes;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Patienter med diabetes kan inte kontrollera blodsockernivåerna på grund av att de saknar insulinproducerande celler eller har icke fungerande insulinproducerande celler. Det finns olika typer av diabetes där typ 1 diabetes och typ 2 diabetes är de vanligaste formerna. READ MORE
