  1. 1. High-resolution imaging of kidney tissue samples

    Author : David Unnersjö-Jess; Hans Blom; Lena Scott; Hjalmar Brismar; Peter Hansell; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Super Resolution Microscopy; Kidney; Imaging; Fluorescence; Kidney development; Calcium; Biological Physics; Biologisk fysik;

    Abstract : The kidney is one of the most important and complex organs in the human body, filtering hundreds of litres of blood daily. Kidney disease is one of the fastest growing causes of death in the modern world, and this motivates extensive research for better understanding the function of the kidney in health and disease.

  3. 3. OX1 Orexin Receptor Signalling to Phospholipases

    Author : Marie Ekholm; Jyrki Kukkonen; Graeme Milligan; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : orexin; phospholipase; Calcium; cell signalling; G protein coupled receptor; ERK; live-cell imaging; arachidonic acid; diacylglycerol;

    Abstract : The neuropeptides orexin-A and orexin-B were discovered in 1998 and were first described as regulators of feeding behaviour. Later research has shown that they have an important role in the regulation of sleep. Two G protein-coupled receptors, OX1 and OX2 orexin receptors, mediate the cellular responses to orexins.

  4. 4. On Multidimensional Dynamic Fluorescence Imaging and Quantitative Image Analysis in Wide-Field Microscopy Applications to Studies of Astroglial Cells

    Author : Siamak Khatibi; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; volume estimation; astrocyte; calcium wave; intercellular signaling; volumetric image analysis; fluorescence imaging; three-dimensional 3D reconstruction; segmentation;

    Abstract : Modern biological research has benefited from a renaissance in light microscopy, brought about by the convergence of developments in fields as diverse as electronics, optics, molecular biology, computer science, and reagent chemistry. Integration of these has transformed microscopy into a highly useful, dynamic research tool for biology and medicine. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Prevalence of Radioactivity in a Number of Non-Nuclear Industries

    Author : Torbjörn Gäfvert; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kärnfysik; Nuclear physics; zircon; ceramics industry; thorium; TIG welding; waterworks; calcium chloride; dicalcium phosphate; phosphate industry; non-nuclear industries; TENORM; Natural radioactivity; NORM;

    Abstract : Four different non-nuclear industries have been investigated regarding the presence of radioactive elements, with the focus on natural radioactivity. The aim of the studies was to investigate the flow of radionuclides in the processes and/or to estimate doses to exposed workers. READ MORE
