  1. 1. Cellular remodeling in response to nutrient exhaustion : From membrane contact sites to autophagy

    Author : Mahsa Ebrahimi; Sabrina Büttner; Cristina Mazzoni; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Aging and longevity; yeast; phosphate restriction; interorganellar communication; autophagy; MVB pathway; NVJs; lipid droplets; nutritional regimes; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Adaptation to fluctuating environments is critical for cellular fitness and survival. Cells need to sense changes in their surroundings and quickly adjust cellular homeostasis and metabolism accordingly. READ MORE

  2. 2. Membrane-remodeling by SNX18 in endosomal transport and autophagy

    Author : Karin Håberg; Sven Carlsson; Geir Bjørkøy; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Sorting nexin; SNX9-family; SNX18; endosomal transport; autophagy; medicinsk biokemi; Medical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The intracellular space of eukaryotic cells is subdivided into functionally distinct membrane-enclosed organelles. Regulation of these intracellular membranes requires an intricate network of specialized lipids and proteins that maintain organellar integrity and mediate transport between organelles. READ MORE

  3. 3. Autophagy in Peripheral Neuropathy

    Author : Ayman Osman; Simin Mohseni; Lars-Göran Dahlin; David Engblom; Maria V Turkina; Kaj Fried; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Peripheral neuropathy includes a wide range of diseases affecting millions around the world, and many of these diseases have unknown etiology. Peripheral neuropathy in diabetes represents a large proportion of peripheral neuropathies. Nerve damage can also be caused by trauma. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Regulatory Role of microRNAs in the Mouse and Human Brain

    Author : Rebecca Petri; Molekylär neurogenetik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; microRNA; Argonaute; AGO-RIP; let-7; miR-125; adult neurogenesis; olfactory bulb; autophagy; transposable elements; LINE-2; Huntington’s disease;

    Abstract : microRNAs (miRNAs) are 20-24 nucleotides small, single-stranded, non-coding RNAs. They associate with Argonaute (AGO) proteins and exert their function by inhibition or degradation of messenger RNAs. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mechanisms of HAMLET-induced cancer cell death

    Author : Sonja Aits; immunologi och glykobiologi - MIG Avdelningen för mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; alpha-actinin; prohibitin; alpha-lactalbumin; HAMLET; cancer; cell death; autophagy; focal adhesions; c-Myc; hexokinase; glycolysis;

    Abstract : HAMLET, a complex of α-lactalbumin and oleic acid, preferentially kills cancer cells and is also effective in vivo. HAMLET causes apoptosis but cells die even if this pathway is inhibited. Thus, the role of autophagy, an alternative cell death pathway, was examined. READ MORE
