    Abstract : High-throughput drug screening (HTS) in live cells is often a vital part of the preclinical anticancer drug discovery process. So far, two-dimensional (2D) monolayer cell cultures have been the most prevalent model in HTS endeavors. However, 2D cell cultures often fail to recapitulate the complex microenvironments of in vivo tumors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Creating cell microenvironments in vitro

    Abstract : Stem cells have a great potential to bring about advancements in fields like developmental biology, drug discovery, cancer biology and tissue engineering. In order to be able to use stem cells to their full potential, it is important to have control over their behavior. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hyaluronan and Renal Fluid Handling : Studies during Normal and Pathological Conditions of Renal Function

    Author : Viktoria Göransson; Mats Rundgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; CD44; gerbils; hyaluronan; ischemia-reperfusion; kidney; osmolality; oxygen tension; rat; renomedullary interstitial cells; water; Cellbiologi; Cell biology; Cellbiologi; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Abstract : The kidney is the major organ responsible for the regulation of the composition and volume of the body fluids, which is essential for homeostasis. The glycosaminoglycan hyaluronan (HA), with extreme water-binding capacity, is present in the interstitium of the kidney with a heterogenous distribution. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sperm Membrane Channels, Receptors and Kinematics : Using boar spermatozoa for drug toxicity screening

    Abstract : Internal fertilization usually implies that a spermatozoon, with intact attributes for zygote formation, passes all hurdles during its transport through the female genitalia and reaches the oocyte. During this journey, millions to billions of other spermatozoa perish. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of Renal Hyaluronan in Water Handling : Studies in vivo and in vitro

    Author : Sara Stridh; Peter Hansell; Mats Rundgren; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Hyaluronan (HA) is a negatively charged extracellular matrix (ECM) component with water-attracting properties. It is the dominating ECM component in the renal medullary interstitium, where the amount changes in relation to hydration status: it increases during hydration and decreases during dehydration.
