  1. 1. Bioinformatic and Biostatistic Analysis of Epigenetic Data from Humans and Mice in the Context of Obesity and its Complications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sarah Voisin; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; obesity; genetics; epigenetics; DNA methylation; sleep; developmental origins of health and disease; single nucleotide polymorphism; genome-wide association study;

    Abstract : Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980 and at least 2.8 million people die each year as a result of being overweight or obese. An elevated body weight is the result of the interplay between susceptibility gene variants and an obesogenic environment, and recent evidence shows that epigenetic processes are likely involved.

  2. 2. Role of calcium in developing cellular network : Ca2+ in human fetal neural stem cells and rat neonatal cardiomyocytes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Women's and Children's Health

    Author : Jeongsook Park; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis aimed to study Ca2+ homeostasis and its regulation in developing heart and brain cells. Cardiomyocytes rapidly developed a fast calcium machinery, (1) to regulate cytoskeletal protein interactions to the extracellular matrix of neighboring cells through gap junctions, and (2) to induce Ca2+-induced Ca2+ release (CICR) from sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR), (3) to generate rapid energy supply of ATP from mitochondria.

  3. 3. Early indicators for adverse development of cardiovascular, renal and metabolic function in children born with low birth weight

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Women's and Children's Health

    Author : Alexander Rakow; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Prematurity affects more than 10% of infants worldwide and is the main reason for neonatal mortality. Improvements in neonatal care have led to higher survival rates into adulthood. Adverse events during organogenesis and development, intra-or extrauterine, can increase the risk for chronic disease later in life. READ MORE

  4. 4. Parkinson’s disease etiology : beyond the brain and late adulthood

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics

    Author : Bojing Liu; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Despite much effort investigating the etiology of Parkinson’s disease (PD), the causes and the exact mechanisms underlying the disease remain elusive. Braak’s hypothesis suggests that PD pathology may start in the enteric nervous system and later spread to the brain via the vagus nerve. READ MORE

  5. 5. Who is Who in the Adipose Organ A look at the Heterogeneity of Adipocyte Biology

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Jasper de Jong; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adipose tissue; Adipocyte; Brown; White; Brite Beige; Physiology; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : The increasing prevalence of obesity and related health complications, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer, demands thorough investigation of the underlying processes. One of the key tissues investigated in this context is adipose tissue. READ MORE
