    Abstract : Apoptosis is a kind of death that is best described as cellular suicide and it is important for normal tissue homeostasis. The process can be induced by a number of different stimuli and the dying cell goes through a defined pathway terminating in typical biochemical and morphological alterations of the cell. READ MORE

  3. 3. Blue light induced retinal damage

    Author : Jiangmei Wu; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : Visual perception results from a response to radiation between 400 and 760 mu reaching the retina. Photoreceptor cells are differentiated post-mitotic retinal neurons uniquely adapted for the efficient capture of photons and for the initiation of visual transduction. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mechanisms of apoptosis induced by a protein complex isolated from human milk : With focus on the role of mitochondria

    Author : Camilla Köhler; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : Human milk contains a protein complex comprising of a folding variant of human alpha-lactalbumin and oleic acid (C18:1). Both, a milk fraction containing this complex (MAL, for multimeric (alpha- lactalbumin). READ MORE
