  1. 1. Investigation on Pre- and Postsynaptic Ca2+ Signaling in Neuronal Model Systems

    Author : Jelena Krjukova; Åkerman Karl; Kukkonen Jyrki; Rydqvist Bo; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology; calcium; neurotransmitter release; nicotine; depolarization; G-protein coupled receptor; muscarinic; phospholipase C; m-3M3FBS; Fysiologi; Physiology; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : Communication between neuronal and non-neuronal is called volume transmission when the released neurotransmitter (NT) acts via diffusion and affects several target cells. Both the neurosecretory and postsynaptic cell responses are linked to [Ca2+]i elevations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Organic bioelectronic devices to control cell signalling

    Author : Karin Larsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The nervous system consists of a network of specialized cells that coordinate the actions of the body by transmitting information to and from the brain. The communication between the nerve cells is dependent on the interplay of both electrical and chemical signals. READ MORE

  3. 3. Strategies to explore the membrane proteome of a cell

    Author : Gianluca Maddalo; Leopold L. Ilag; Peter James; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Membrane proteins; Proteomics; Escherichia coli; Enterococcus faecalis; Synechocystis; Mass Spectrometry; BN SDS-PAGE; FT-ICR-MS; Myelin P2 protein; Analytical chemistry; Analytisk kemi; Analytical Chemistry; analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : The cell envelope plays key roles in numerous processes such as maintaining cellular integrity, communication with other cells, signal transduction, maintenance of cellular homeostasis, and regulation of the traffic of molecules between the cell and the extracellular milieu. Essential membrane components in many of these processes are proteins. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bacterial physiology and its role in antibiotic refractoriness

    Author : Spyridon Gkotzis; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The pathological outcome of a bacterial infection depends on the interplay among the host’s innate defenses, the virulence arsenal of the pathogen and antibiotic treatment strategies. Understanding this interplay will provide mechanistic insights on antibiotic pharmacodynamics and bacterial pathogenesis, and set the stage for the development of novel therapeutic interventions.

  5. 5. Mitochondria-endoplasmic reticulum contacts in neuronal cells : from physiology to therapeutics

    Author : Giacomo Dentoni; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Mitochondria and the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) are intracellular organelles that play vital physiological functions. Mitochondria are key players in energy production through adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production and calcium (Ca2+) buffering, while the ER is involved in protein and lipid synthesis along with Ca2+ signalling in the cell.
