  1. 1. Coordination of endocytosis at the synaptic periactive zone

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Emma Evergren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Synapse; endocytosis; clathrin; dynamin; amphiphysin; synapsin; intersectin; actin cytoskeleton; immunogold electron microscopy.;

    Abstract : Abstract: Neurons in the central nervous system communicate via specialized junctions called synapses. Neurotransmitter-filled vesicles are clustered at these junctions, where they are released in response to synaptic activity. To sustain reliable neurotransmission the synaptic vesicles are recycled locally. READ MORE

  2. 2. Synaptic vesicle endocytosis studied in a living synapse

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Helge Gad; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; synapse; synaptic vesicles; endocytosis; clathrin; calcium; dynamin; endophilin; amphiphysin; synaptojanin; microinjection; electron microscopy;

    Abstract : Neurons in the central nervous system communicate by transmitting electrical signals at special sites of contact called synapses. Synapses contain neurotransmitter-filled synaptic vesicles, which fuse with the presynaptic plasma membrane. The neurotransmitter diffuses to the neighboring neuron and triggers a new electrical signal. READ MORE

  3. 3. RICH-1, a Multifunctional RhoGAP Domain-containing Protein, Involved in Regulation of the Actin Filament System and Membrane-trafficking

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ninna Richnau; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; Rho GTPase; RhoGAP; actin; BAR domain; membrane-trafficking; formin homology proteins; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : The Rho GTPases, which are related to the Ras family of proto-oncogenes, have been found to have important roles in regulating the morphogenic and migratory properties of eukaryotic cells. In addition, these proteins have been shown to regulate aspects of cell signaling, cell growth, cell division and cell survival. READ MORE

  4. 4. Immunoreactive proteins in Taenia solium

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Author : Fernando Salazar-Anton; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Taenia solium cysticercosis is a neglected zoonotic disease that constitutes a serious public health problem in many low-income countries of Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Although diagnostic antigens are available, it is still necessary to identify new targets to improve the current diagnostic methods. READ MORE
