  1. 1. Eosinophil Apoptosis

    University dissertation from Uppsala University Library

    Author : Kristina Seton; Joachim Lundahl; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell biology; Apoptosis; Programmed Cell Death; Survival; Eosinophils; Inflammatory Diseases; Resolution of inflammation; Functions; Flow cytometry; Cellbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Cell biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Cellbiologi; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : Apoptosis or programmed cell death is crucial for the resolution of inflammation, and phagocytosis of apoptotic cells initiates the release of actively anti-inflammatory responses from the phagocytes. Eosinophils are one of the most potent inflammatory cells in the body and is involved in a number of diseases, most commonly associated with parasitic infections and allergic diseases. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulation of neutrophil apoptosis

    University dissertation from Maria Alvarado-Kristensson, experimentall pathology, Lund University, U-MAS, entrance 78, 205 02 Malmö

    Author : Maria Alvarado-Kristensson; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; General pathology; pathological anatomy; Patologi allmän ; patologisk anatomi; PP2A; p38 MAPK; caspases; signal transduction; inflammation; Apoptosis; human neutrophils;

    Abstract : The human neutrophil is the most abundant granulocyte and the major type of cell involved in an acute inflammatory response. Neutrophils are armed with various systems of enzymes, that can find and kill pathogens, but unfortunately, these "weapons" cannot distinguish between the host tissues and the "invaders. READ MORE

  3. 3. Apoptosis Regulation in Multiple Myeloma

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lina Dimberg; Helena Jernberg Wiklund; Kenneth Nilsson; Marie Arsenian Henriksson; [2006]
    Keywords : Biomedicine; multiple myeloma; apoptosis; survival; IFN; Stat1; Stat3; IGF-I; RTK inhibitor; PPP; IAP; Fas CD95; dexamethasone; Biomedicin;

    Abstract : Multiple myeloma (MM) is a virtually incurable B cell malignancy of the bone marrow. One important part of tumor progression and an obstacle for successful therapy is resistance to apoptosis. To combat this resistance, the mechanisms of apoptosis and survival in MM must be better defined. READ MORE

  5. 5. The role of the mitochondrial membrane system in apoptosis the influence of oxidative stress on membranes and their interactions with apoptosis-regulating Bcl-2 proteins

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Martin Lidman; Gerhard Gröbner; Magnus Wolf-Watz; Philip Williamson; [2015]
