  1. 1. Preproenkephalin Gene and mRNA : Studies of Structure, Function, Cocaine Responses in an Animal Model, and Genetic Association with Human Opiate Addiction

    Author : Karl Steven LaForge; Fred Nyberg; Peter S. Eriksson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biological research on drug dependence; Neuropeptides; Endogenous opioid system; Drug addiction; Heroin; Cocaine; Gene expression; Genetic association; Biologisk beroendeforskning; Biological research on drug dependence; Biologisk beroendeforskning;

    Abstract : The endogenous opioid enkephalin neuropeptides are mediators of pain perception and have been implicated in human addictions. The preproenkephalin gene and its mRNA have also provided many examples of tissue- and species-specific variations in mRNA structure produced through a variety of transcriptional and post-transcriptional mechanisms.

  3. 3. Gene Expression Profiling of Human Atherosclerosis

    Author : Sara Hägg; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is the main underlying cause of coronary artery disease (CAD) and stroke. These two diseases are leading causes of death in the developed world. The socio-economical cost for treatments and absence of work is enormous. Recent numbers from the US show no tendency of decline in the spread of atherosclerosis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Gene Expression in Cancer Cells : Detection of Splice Variants, Allele-specific Expression and DNA Methylation

    Author : Lili Milani; Ann-Christine Syvänen; Thomas R. Gingeras; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The human genome sequencing project has provided a wealth of information on sequence variation between individuals. The surprisingly low number of genes in the human genome is compensated for by a complex regulation of gene expression. READ MORE

  5. 5. Gene expression in carcinogenesis

    Author : Heléne Fischer; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : It is important to understand the processes of carcinogenesis and to find out which genes are involved . One way to study the process on a molecular basis is to identify differences in gene expression. READ MORE
