  1. 1. Retinoid metabolism and signalling in vascular smooth muscle cells

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitetsbibliotek

    Author : Pauline Ocaya; Örebro universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; all-trans Retinol; all-trans Retinoic acid; retinoid metabolism; proliferation; Vascular smooth muscle cells; CYP26; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) play a major role in cardiovascular diseases. In advanced atherosclerosis, blood flow is impaired due to reduced luminal diameter. Percutaneous vascular interventions, including balloon angioplasty and stent-application are commonly used for the re-establishment of luminal size and improvement of tissue perfusion. READ MORE

  2. 2. The informational value and usefulness of serum retinoid measurements. Studies on biological variation, including infancy and pregnancy, and influence of fasting, antiepileptic drugs and ethanol

  3. 3. Signaling and regulation of cysteinyl leukotriene receptors in intestinal epithelial cells and colon cancer

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Astrid Bengtsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TNF alpha; COX-2; interferon alpha; all-trans retinoic acid; EGF; inflammation; colorectal cancer; CysLT2R; Leukotriene; CysLT1R;

    Abstract : Colorectal cancer is the third most common type of cancer, and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the Western world. Chronic inflammation, such as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), increases the risk of cancer. Cysteinyl leukotrienes are pro-inflammatory mediators that are involved in IBD. READ MORE

  4. 4. Retinoic Acid Metabolism Blocking Agents and the Skin In vivo and in vitro Studies of the Effects on Normal and Diseased Human Epidermis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Elizabeth Pavez Loriè; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CYP; CYP26; retinoids; vitamin A; RAMBA; metabolism; keratinocyte; epidermis; retinoid regulated genes; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Dermatology and venerology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Dermatologi och venerologi;

    Abstract : Retinoic Acid Metabolism Blocking Agents (RAMBAs) increase the endogenous levels of all-trans retinoic acid (RA) by inhibiting CYP26 enzymes. Thus they are believed to mimic the effects of retinoid treatment. Their mechanism of action and effects on vitamin A metabolism in keratinocytes are however uncertain. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of ellagic acid in human neuroblastoma cells

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Christina Fjæraa Alfredsson; Karlstads universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; polyphenols; ellagic acid; neuroblastoma; SH-SY5Y cells; differentiation; proliferation; apoptosis; cell adhesion; Biomedical Sciences; Biomedicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : A diet rich in polyphenols has been proposed to have beneficial health effects and to reduce risk of disease. Ellagic acid, a polyphenol common in red berries and pomegranates, has potential anti-tumorigenic effects that make it interesting to further study in different cancer cell systems. READ MORE
