  1. 1. Brain Aromatase in the guppy, Poecilia reticulata Distribution, control and role in behaviour

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

    Author : Stefan Hallgren; Södertörns högskola.; Södertörns högskola.; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi; funktionell morfologi; Functional Zoomorphology; Oestrogen production; behaviour; anatomy; endocrinology; bio markers; endocrine disruption;

    Abstract : Oestrogens are produced by aromatisation of androgens by the aromatase enzyme. In the vertebrate brain this synthesis has vital functions in nerve protection, cell proliferation and nerve development during injury respectively brain development. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulation of chloride secretion in HT29 cells studied by X-ray microanalysis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Wei Zhang; Uppsala universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anatomy; epithelium; chloride channel; HT29 cells; ion transport; volume; X-ray microanalysis; G-protein coupled receptors; α2-adrenoceptors; purinoceptors; muscarinic receptors; Anatomi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Morphology Anatomy; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Morfologi Anatomi; Human Anatomy; anatomi;

    Abstract : Several aspects of Cl- secretion in epithelial cells were investigated. Methods to prepare cultured cellsfor X-ray microanalysis, in order to study volume-regulating chloride transport were evaluated. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aspects of aqueous humor dynamics : Studies in vivo and in vitro

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Samuelsson-Almén; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology and anatomy; Aqneous humor flow; intraocular pressure; adenylate cyclase; nonpigmented ciliary epithelium; pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide; vasoactive intestinal polypeptide; dopamine; prostaglandin; Fysiologi och anatomi; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Abstract : The purpose of the present investigation was to study the effects of PGF2α-l-isopropylester, some neuropeptides, and pharmacological agents on aqueous humor dynamics and intraocular pressure (IOP) in vivo and on adenylate cyclase activity in the nonpigmented ciliary epithelium (NPE) in vitro.Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) caused a dose-dependent increase in cAMP formation, indicating that the NPE contains receptors for PACAP and VIP coupled to adenylate cyclase activation.

  4. 4. Cell Contacts and Airway Epithelial Damage in Asthma

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Shahida Shahana; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anatomy; Desmosomes; tight junctions; major basic protein; eosinophil; cytokines; epithelial damage.; Anatomi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Morphology Anatomy; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Morfologi Anatomi;

    Abstract : Airway epithelial damage is commonly found in asthma patients. Epithelial damage was investigated with special reference to contacts between epithelial cells.Eosinophils, common in allergic asthma, secrete cationic proteins, particularly major basic protein (MBP). READ MORE

  5. 5. Epidermal keratinocytes studied by X-ray microanalysis, with special reference to contact dermatitis : In vivo and in vitro studies of functional changes in human cells

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anders Grängsjö; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; X-ray microanalysis; elements; epidermis; keratinocytes; proliferation; cell membrane damage; Ki67; irritants; intracellular elemental content; keratinocyte culture; HaCaT; NHEK; RT-PCR; immunohistochemistry; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : By determining the intracellular elemental content, information can be obtained on the physiological status of cells. The cellular content of sodium, magnesium, phosphorus, sulfur, chloride, potassium and calcium can be indicative for proliferation, cell membrane damage or cell death. READ MORE
