  1. 1. Proteomic Analysis of Urinary Bladder Cancer : Aiming for Novel Biomarkers

    Author : Mårten Lindén; Per-Uno Malmström; Ulrika Segersten; Sara Bergström Lind; Lars Egevad; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : urine; APOE; FGB; GAL1; LRG1; POLR1E; SERPINA1; STMN1; TOP2A; biomarker; diagnostic biomarker; prognostic biomarker; predictive biomarker; mass spectrometry; western blot; dot blot; immunohistochemistry; IHC; tissue microarray; TMA; urothelium; antibody; antibody-based; urinblåsecancer; biomarkör; diagnos; prognos; urin; proteomik; masspektrometri; immunohistokemi; antikroppar; Molecular Biology; Molekylärbiologi; Molekylär medicin; Molecular Medicine;

    Abstract : Urinary bladder cancer is a heterogeneous disease appearing in different forms, e.g. non-muscle invasive and muscle invasive. For all variants, the expression of proteins is interesting to analyze for diagnostic, predictive, prognostic and drug targeting purposes, since it reflects the altered gene expression causing the cancer.

  2. 2. Proteomics in biomarker research : Insights into the effects of aging and environment on biological systems

    Author : Hanna Amelina; Susana Cristobal; Jean-Charles Sanchez; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; proteomics; biomarker; peroxisomes; 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis 2-DE ; mass spectrometry MS ; aging; marine pollution; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Environmental toxicology; Miljötoxikologi; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : Proteomics is the global analysis of proteins that covers a broad range of technologies aimed at determining the identity and quantity of proteins expressed in the cell, their three-dimensional structure and interaction partners. In contrast to genome, proteome reflects more accurately on the dynamic state of the cell, tissue, or an organism. READ MORE

  3. 3. Strategies for Miniaturized Biomarker Detection

    Author : Belinda Adler; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; biomarker; miniturization; lab-on-a-chip; proteomics; PSA; microarray; mass spectrometry; MALDI MS; SPE; sample preparation; immunoaffinity; antibody; aptamer; mass tag; ISET.;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is development and application of different miniaturized strategies for detection of biomarkers. The biomarker PSA (prostate specific antigen), which is prostate cancer specific, has been the main focus of the thesis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluation of Biomarker Responses in Fish : with Special Emphasis on Gill EROD Activity

    Author : Carin Andersson; Jan Örberg; Björn Brunström; Lars Förlin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Biology; three-spined stickleback; biomarker; EROD; ethynylestradiol; gill; vitellogenin; spiggin; CYP1A inducers; humic substances; sperm quality; biomonitoring; Biologi;

    Abstract : Many chemicals present in the aquatic environment can interfere with physiological functions in fish. Exposure to chemicals can be revealed by the use of biomarkers. Induction of 7-ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase (EROD) activity is a commonly used biomarker for exposure to CYP1A inducers such as dioxins and polyaromatic hyrdrocarbons. READ MORE

  5. 5. Type IV collagen in breast and colorectal cancer : a potential biomarker of metastatic disease

    Author : Moa Lindgren; Hanna Nyström; Ingrid Ljuslinder; Malin Sund; Kristian Pietras; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Colorectal cancer; colorectal liver metastases; breast cancer; breast cancer metastases; tumor marker; biomarker; stroma; type IV collagen;

    Abstract : Background: Metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) and metastatic breast cancer (mBC) are two leading causes of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Early detection of metastatic disease is critical, and sensitive, easily accessed and cost-effective biomarkers that can diagnose mBC and mCRC at an early stage would have high clinical value.
