  1. 1. Fetal programming and parent-of-origin effects of type 2 diabetes and insulin secretion

    Author : Gad Hatem; diabetes och endokrinologi Genomik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Type 2 Diabetes; fetal programming; parent-of-origin effects; transcriptopmics;

    Abstract : Abstract Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a heterogeneous and a complex disease defined by hyperglycemia. Thepancreas and its islets are central for glucose homeostasis and healthy adipose tissue. In turn, lipid levels in the bloodare crucial for glucose level stability. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cell cycle control by components of cell anchorage

    Author : Annica Gad; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Extracellular factors, such as growth factors and cell anchorage to the extracellular matrix, control when and where cells may proliferate. This control is abolished when a normal cell transforms into a tumour cell. The control of cell proliferation by cell anchorage was elusive and less well studied than the control by growth factors.

  3. 3. Synaptic vesicle endocytosis studied in a living synapse

    Author : Helge Gad; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : synapse; synaptic vesicles; endocytosis; clathrin; calcium; dynamin; endophilin; amphiphysin; synaptojanin; microinjection; electron microscopy;

    Abstract : Neurons in the central nervous system communicate by transmitting electrical signals at special sites of contact called synapses. Synapses contain neurotransmitter-filled synaptic vesicles, which fuse with the presynaptic plasma membrane. The neurotransmitter diffuses to the neighboring neuron and triggers a new electrical signal. READ MORE

  4. 4. Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and anxiety symptoms in older adults

    Author : Johan Nilsson; Göteborgs universitet; []

    Abstract : Anxiety is a broad concept, difficult to detect and recognize. Expression may shift over the lifetime further complicating identification. Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is one of the most common anxiety disorders in older adults; however, the true nature remains unclear. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cyanide and central nervous system : a study with focus on brain dopamine

    Author : Gudrun Cassel; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CNS; cyanide; dopaminergic system; convulsions; receptor binding; tyrosine hydroxylase; monoamine oxidase; extracellular release; inositol phosphate; GABA; GAD;

    Abstract : The brain is a major target site in acute cyanide intoxication, as indicated by several symptoms and signs. Cyanide inhibits the enzyme cytochrome oxidase. This inhibition causes impaired oxygen utilization in all cells affected, severe metabolic acidosis and inhibited production of energy. READ MORE
