  1. 1. Cyclic nucleotide signalling systems in vascular smooth muscle cells and immune system cells with special reference to phosphodiesterases PDE3 and PDE4

    University dissertation from Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Lund University

    Author : Dag Ekholm; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HTLV-I; multiple sclerosis; proliferation; phosphorylation; T-lymphocytes; vascular smooth muscle; cloning; protein kinase A; cGMP; cAMP; PDE4; Phosphodiesterase; PDE3; cilostamide; rolipram; Histology; cytochemistry; histochemistry; tissue culture; Histologi; cytokemi; histokemi; vävnadskultur;

    Abstract : The cyclic nucleotide signalling systems are important in vascular smooth muscle and in the immune system, and are of interest from a pharmacological point of view. Drugs which interfere with the cyclic nucleotide levels have profound effects on heart, blood vessels and airways and have actual or potential use in several important diseases, such as heart failure, hypertension, arteriosclerosis, asthma and autoimmune diseases.

  2. 2. The prefrontal cortex and information processing : nitric oxide signaling studied in an animal model of schizophrenia

    University dissertation from Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Lund University

    Author : Kim Fejgin; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; schizophrenia; nitric oxide; prepulse inhibition; phencyclidine; prefrontal cortex; cGMP; baclofen; cognition;

    Abstract : The prefrontal cortex has been extensively linked to several cognitive domains that are severely compromised in schizophrenia. It has therefore become a key region for studies on the disabling cognitive dysfunction commonly observed in patients with schizophrenia. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pharmacological evaluation of the NO/cGMP signalling system

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Anna Asplund Persson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Platelet activation and inhibition are tightly balanced processes, regulated by various endogenous molecules. In this regard, the endothelium plays a key role in mediating inhibition of platelets by releasing nitric oxide (NO) and cAMP-elevating prostaglandins. READ MORE
