  1. 11. The human pancreatic polypeptide receptor Y4 Genetic and functional variation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kateryna Shebanits; Dan Larhammar; Sadaf Farooqi; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NPY4R; Y4; obesity; CNV; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Humans are evolutionarily adapted to an environment where food is scarce, but today many live in a world of food abundance. Paired with low physical activity, this may lead to weight gain and obesity. Efficient anti-obesity treatments require understanding of the mechanisms that control hunger, satiety, energy metabolism and body weight. READ MORE

  2. 12. Effects of nitric oxide on gastric acid secretion in human gastric mucosa : functional and morphological studies

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Anna Berg; Gunnar Flemström; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Hydrochloric acid (HCI) is secreted in high amounts by parietal cells in the human gastric mucosa and the resulting low pH constitutes an important factor for creating a suitable environment for the digestion. The normal gastric mucosa is equipped with an arsenal of protective mechanisms against the extreme chemical environment which the gastric acid creates. READ MORE

  3. 13. Domestication Effects on the Stress Response in Chickens Genetics, Physiology, and Behaviour

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Amir Fallahshahroudi; Per Jensen; Frank Albert; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Animal domestication; stress response; gene expression; QTL; eQTL;

    Abstract : Animal domestication, the process where animals become adapted to living in proximity to humans, is associated with the alteration of multiple traits, including decreased fearfulness and stress response. With an estimated population of 50 billion, the domesticated chicken is the most populous avian species in the world. READ MORE

  4. 14. Multiparametric MRI for evaluation of tumour treatment response Studies of 177Lu-octreotate therapy of neuroendocrine tumour

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Mikael Montelius; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]

    Abstract : Clinical assessment of tumour response to treatment largely relies on estimates of tumour size by, e.g., measuring the largest tumour diameters on magnetic resonance (MR) or computed tomography (CT) images, weeks or months after treatment. READ MORE

  5. 15. Functional brain imaging of cognitive status in Parkinson's disease

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Urban Ekman; Johan Eriksson; Lars Nyberg; Lars Forsgren; Oury Monchi; [2014]
