  1. 1. Dual roles for hepatic lectin receptors in the clearance of chilled platelets

    Author : Viktoria Rumjantseva; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : platelet storage; Asialoglycoprotein receptor; GPIbα; αMβ2; transfusion; clearance;

    Abstract : Platelets for transfusion are stored at room temperature because refrigerated platelets are cleared rapidly from circulation. Room temperature storage causes major inconveniences for blood banks and medical risks for recipients. READ MORE

  2. 2. The role of microglia in Alzheimer's disease - Investigating mechansims regulating amyloid-β clearance

    Author : Carl-Henrik Andersson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : microglia; neuroinflammation; amyloid-beta; Alzheimer s disease; genetic association; biomarker; cerebrospinal fluid; zebrafish; clearance; in vivo imaging;

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia today. The disease is characterized by the presence of amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles in the brain, accompanied by a progressive neurodegeneration leading to memory loss. READ MORE

  3. 3. Proteins of the Inter-α-inhibitor Family : Biosynthesis, Plasma Clearance and Interaction with Extracellular Matrix Components

    Author : Aneta Kaczmarczyk; Erik Fries; Anders Malmström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; bikunin; inter-α-inhibitor; pre-α-inhibitor; intracellular processing; plasma clearance; extracellular matrix; binding; collagen; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Medical Biochemistry; medicinsk biokemi;

    Abstract : Bikunin, a chondroitin sulfate-containing protein of 25 kDa, has protease inhibitory activity and occurs in the plasma in free and complexed form. In inter-α-inhibitor (IαI) and pre-a-inhibitor (PαI) it is covalently linked through its chondroitin sulfate (CS) chain to two or one other polypeptide of about 80 kDa – heavy chains 1 and 2 (H1, H2) and heavy chain 3 (H3) – respectively.

  4. 4. Management of urban woodlands - effects on bird communities and recreational values

    Author : Erik Heyman; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Forest management; Urban woodlands; Birds; Recreation; Clearance; Understory;

    Abstract : The ongoing urbanisation increases the pressure on urban nature. Urban woodlands are receiving growing attention as they provide valuable ecosystem services to urban citizens, mainly by providing areas for recreation but also through improving air quality and reducing noise.

  5. 5. Renal dysfunction in orthopaedic surgery - with special reference to drug effects in the elderly

    Author : Görel Nergelius; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; orthopaedics; Surgery; protein HC; IgG; albumin; pharmacokinetics; diclofenac; clearance; elderly; penicillin; isoxazolyl; tubular; glomerular; arthroplasty; exercise; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; Anaesthesiology; intensive care; Anestesiologi; intensivvård;

    Abstract : Total hip replacement (THR) is a common procedure, generally performed in elderly persons. Previous studies indicated that the use of isoxazolyl penicillins could induce a transient post-operative renal dysfunction in these patients. READ MORE
