  1. 1. Regulation of fibroblast activity by keratinocytes, TGF-β and IL-1α : studies in two- and three dimensional in vitro models

    Author : Anita Koskela von Sydow; Mikael Ivarsson; Torbjörn Bengtsson; Hans Törmä; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fibroblast; Keratinocyte; TGF-β; IL-1α; coculture; fibrosis CTGF CNN 2; dermal; organotypic culture;

    Abstract : Dysregulated wound healing is commonly associated with excessive fibrosis. Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF/CCN2) is characteristically overexpressed in fibrotic diseases and stimulated by transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) in dermal fibroblasts. Reepithelialisation and epidermal wound coverage counteract excessive scar formation. READ MORE

  2. 2. In vitro wound healing characteristics of amelogenins

    Author : Sofia Almqvist; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; amelogenins; extracellular matrix; cell culture; macrophage; fibroblast; endothelial cell; integrin; cytokine; inflammation; wound healing tissue repair;

    Abstract : Wound healing involves the co-ordinated actions of several cell types, soluble cell mediators and extracellular matrix (ECM). This research project intended to investigate the role of certain ECM proteins in different processes during tissue repair by studying the interaction between dermal cells and ECM. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fibroblast growth factor-induced signal transduction

    Author : Peter Klint; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology;

    Abstract : Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) evoke cellular responses by binding to FGF receptors (FGFRs). FGFRs are cell surface expressed membrane-spanning receptors with intrinsic stimulatable tyrosine kinase activity. This thesis describes the cell proliferation or differentiation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fibroblast Differentiation and Models of Human Skin

    Author : Jonathan Rakar; Gunnar Kratz; Ingemar Rundquist; Anders Lindahl; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : This thesis combines three publications and one manuscript, covering two principal topics: functional differentiation of human fibroblasts and laboratory models of human skin. The two topics favourably unite in the realm of tissue engineering. This thesis is therefore split into three main parts: 1. READ MORE

  5. 5. Functionalization of spider silk with affinity and bioactive domains via genetic engineering for in vitro disease diagnosis and tissue engineering

    Author : Naresh Thatikonda; My Hedhammar; Hanna Dams Kozlowska; KTH; []
    Keywords : affinity domains; artificial ECM; basic fibroblast growth factor; functionalization; mammalian cell culture; micro-and nano arrays; partial spider silk; single chain variable fragments; Bioteknologi; Biotechnology;

    Abstract : In the recent past, spider silk has drawn significant attention from researchers mainly due to its distinguished mechanical strength, elasticity, biocompatibility and biodegradability. Technological advancements in genetic engineering have resulted in methods for creation of partial spider silk proteins. READ MORE
