  1. 16. Structure and Interactions of the Extracellular Matrix Protein PRELP

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

    Author : Eva Bengtsson; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reumatologi; muskelsystem; Skelett; extracellular matrix; PRELP; heparin; heparan sulfate; perlecan; collagen; cell-binding; Skeleton; rheumatology locomotion; muscle system; Biochemistry; Metabolism; Biokemi;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the structure and interactions of a novel extracellular matrix protein - PRELP (proline arginine-rich end leucine-rich repeat protein). The amino acid sequence of PRELP showed that it belonged to the leucine-rich repeat (LRR) protein family in connective tissues. READ MORE

  2. 17. Intracellular components involved in parathyroid sensing of extracellular calcium

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Isaac G. Onyango; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Parathyroid hormone; secretion; Src kinase; ERK; PI 3-kinase; PKC; extracellular calcium; parathyroid cell; Biokemi; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; Medical and Physiological Chemistry; medicinsk och fysiologisk kemi;

    Abstract : Parathyroid glands are the primary regulator of extracellular calcium ([Ca2+]e). Ca2+ plays a key role in many fundamental biological processes and is also an essential structural component of the skeleton. The parathyroid chief cells detect small changes in [Ca2+]e and respond by altering the secretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH). READ MORE

  3. 18. Interactions between extracellular matrix proteins and the complement system - In the perspective of cartilage degradation in inflammatory joint diseases

    University dissertation from Division of Medical Protein Chemistry, Department of Translational Medicine, Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Camilla Melin Fürst; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Complement system; rheumatoid arthritis; osteoarthritis; extracellular matrix; cartilage degradation; mass spectrometry;

    Abstract : Abstract: The joint diseases osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are characterized by destructive inflammatory processes that result in pathological changes of the joint tissues, including proteolytic degradation of cartilage and release of extracellular matrix proteins or fragments to the synovial fluid. The complement system, which is a part of the innate immune system, plays a central role in promoting the joint inflammation in these diseases. READ MORE

  4. 19. Cellular and Molecular Responses to Traumatic Brain Injury

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Camilla Lööv; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Traumatic Brain Injury; Astrocyte; Apoptosis; Biomarkers; Ezrin; Actin; Extracellular Proteins; Degradation; Lysosome; Antigen Presentation; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap; Neurosurgery; Neurokirurgi;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a relatively unknown disease considering the tens of millions of people affected around the world each year. Many TBI patients die from their injuries and survivors often suffer from life-long disabilities. READ MORE

  5. 20. The Germinal Centre reaction - Genetic and proteomic analysis of factors important for survival and growth of B lymphocytes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Linda Zander; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; B lymphocyte; germinal centre; transformation; serum-free; MHC class II; bare lymphocyte syndrome; extracellular proteins; DNA repair; Polymerase ?;

    Abstract : During an immune response the B lymphocytes main function is to produce antibodies in the specific defence against the pathogen. When naïve B lymphocytes become activated by binding of an antigen, the cells differentiate to become antibody producing plasma cells. READ MORE
