    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative affliction to which researchers have long striven to find a cure. The human embryo is a source of vital cells used in regenerative medicine, as well as a powerful symbol of life. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human articular chondrocytes. Plasticity and differentiation potentials

    Author : Tommi Tallheden; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : autologous chondrocyte transplantation; dedifferentiation; redifferentiation; stem; cells;

    Abstract : Articular cartilage has no or very low ability for self-repair and untreated lesions may lead tothe development of Osteoarthritis (OA). One method, which has been proved to result in longterm repair of isolated lesions, is autologous chondrocyte transplantation (ACT). READ MORE

  3. 3. Regulation of apoptosis and steroidogenesis in ovarian preovulatory granulosa cells

    Author : Eva Svensson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; apoptosis; granulosa cells; luteinizing hormone; progesterone receptor; RU 486; Org 31710; leptin; steroidogenesis;

    Abstract : Only a minute fraction of ovarian follicles present in a foetal ovary will complete the path to ovulation. The majority of the follicles will instead undergo atresia, a hormonally controlled apoptotic process. Apoptosis occurs throughout follicle development, with an extensive reduction in the number of follicles present at birth. READ MORE

  4. 4. Transcriptional profiling of human embryonic stem cells and their functional derivatives

    Author : Jane Synnergren; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transcription; differentiation; human embryonic stem cells; gene expression; Naturvetenskap; Natural sciences;

    Abstract : Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) represent populations of pluripotent, undifferentiated cells with unlimited replication capacity, and with the ability to differentiate into any functional cell type in the human body. Based on these properties, hESCs and their derivatives provide unique model systems for basic research on embryonic development. READ MORE

  5. 5. Immunological aspects of maternal-foetal interactions in mice

    Author : Marie Arvola; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Neonatal mice; milk; placenta; fetal rejection; IgG; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental Biology; miljömedicinsk utvecklingsbiologi;

    Abstract : Mammalian pregnancy is an immunological paradox. The foetus, which expresses both paternal and maternal cell-surface molecules, has to be protected from rejection by the maternal immune system. At the same time, the mother has to have an efficient immune defence and must provide her offspring with antibodies. READ MORE
