  1. 1. Studies on Airway Surface Liquid in Connection with Cystic Fibrosis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Inna Kozlova; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cystic fibrosis; CFTR; airway surface liquid; ion content; anesthesia; mist tent therapy; Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Cell biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Cystic fibrosis (CF) is one of the most common fatal inherited diseases, most prevalent among Caucasians. CF is caused by a mutation in the gene coding for the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), which helps to create sweat, digestive juices, and airway surface liquid (ASL).

  2. 2. Studies of the Elemental Composition of Airway Surface Liquid with Relevance to Cystic Fibrosis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Viengphet Vanthanouvong; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Anatomy; airway surface liquid; cystic fibrosis; Na; K; Cl; X-ray microanalysis; Anatomi;

    Abstract : Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease with symptoms mainly in the respiratory tract. The airway epithelium is covered with a thin layer of fluid, the airway surface liquid (ASL). The volume and composition of ASL are important in the pathogenesis of cystic fibrosis. The composition of ASL was determined. READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies of Tight Junctions and Airway Surface Liquid in Airway Epithelium with Relevance to Cystic Fibrosis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Harriet Nilsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a multi-organ autosomal recessive disease of fluid-transporting epithelia, due to a mutation in the gene coding for the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) protein. CFTR is a cAMP-regulated Cl-channel involved in various regulatory processes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Zinc Oxide Nanostructure Based Electrochemical Sensors and Drug Delivery to Intracellular Environments

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Muhammad Asif; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ZnO nanorods; Intracellular electrochemical sensor; Functionalization; Metal ions; Glucose; Human Adipocytes; Frog Oocytes; Airway surface liquid; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The nanoscale science and nanostructure engineering have well established in the fabrication of novel electrochemical biosensors with faster response and higher sensitivity than of planar sensor configurations. Moreover nanostructures are suggested and used as efficient carrier of photosensitizers for cancerous cell treatment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development and validation of a system for the generation, characterization and subsequent air- liquid interface studies of aerosol particles

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Christian Svensson; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nanoparticles; aggregates; aerosol; protein interactions; toxicology; dose; air liquid interface;

    Abstract : Exposure to nano-sized and nanostructured aerosol particles with tailored properties are likely to increase in society. Occupational exposure to various kinds of nanostructured aerosol particles such as soot and metal aggregates already exists. READ MORE
