  1. 1. The role of leucine-rich repeat glycoproteins/proteoglycans in the assembly of collagen matrices

    University dissertation from Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Lund University

    Author : Liz Svensson; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reumatologi; muskelsystem; Skelett; decorin; Collagen; fibromodulin; extracellular matrix; lumican; collagen fibrillogenesis; Skeleton; rheumatology locomotion; muscle system; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Metabolism;

    Abstract : The properties of different connective tissues depend on the synthesis and assembly of macromolecular structures composed of collagen and other extracellular matrix components. Mechanisms modulating these events play important roles in the formation of a functional tissue. READ MORE

  2. 2. Collagen VI - Molecular Assembly and Interactions

    University dissertation from Charlotte Wiberg, Dep of Cell and Molecular Biology, BMC Plan C12, SE-221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Charlotte Wiberg; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Clinical biology; extracellular matrix; glycosaminoglycan; proteoglycan; collagen; biglycan; decorin; Klinisk biologi;

    Abstract : The extracellular matrix plays an integral role in tissue remodeling and development and it defines the different mechanical properties of a variety of connective tissues. Its complexity in composition and the details in organization has only been partly elucidated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Extracellular Matrix Remodelling-Proteoglycan and collagen turnover in arthritis

    University dissertation from Anette Bjärdahlen, BMC C13, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Anette Bjärdahlen; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Arthritis; collagen; cartilage; myofibroblasts; pannus; proteoglycan; Skeleton; muscle system; rheumatology locomotion; reumatologi; Skelett; muskelsystem;

    Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic, inflammatory and systemic disease characterised by joint destruction and pannus formation. To enlarge the understanding how pannus and granulation tissue are formed two animal models were used; one using cartilage wrapped in cotton and implanted into a rat air pouch (AP) and one where mBSA induced arthritis (AIA) was performed.

  5. 5. The MHC-glycopeptide-T cell interaction in collagen induced arthritis a study using glycopeptides, isosteres and statistical molecular design in a mouse model for rheumatoid arthritis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kemi

    Author : Lotta Holm; Umeå universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Rheumatoid arthritis; collagen; T-cell; class II MHC; solid phase peptide synthesis; glycopeptide; peptide isostere; PCA; statistical molecular design; PLS; QSAR; sequence binding motif; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease affecting approximately 1% of the population in the western world. It is characterised by a tissue specific attack of cartilage in peripheral joints. Collagen induced arthritis (CIA) is one of the most commonly used animal models for (RA), with similar symptoms and histopathology. READ MORE
