  1. 1. Getting to know Trioza apicalis (Homoptera: Psylloidea) – a Specialist Host-Alternating Insect with a Tiny Olfactory System

    University dissertation from Chemical Ecology and Ecotoxicology, Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Lina Kristoffersen; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physiology of invertebrates; Djurs anatomi och morfologi; Entomologi; plant parasitology; Entomology; Ekologi; Ecology; glomeruli; antennal lobe; olfactory receptor neurons electrophysiology; antennae; behaviour; olfaction; Sternorrhyncha; psyllid; Ryggradslösa djurs fysiologi; animal morphology; Animal anatomy; växtparasitologi;

    Abstract : This thesis comprises ecological, morphological and physiological studies of the carrot psyllid Trioza apicalis (Homoptera: Psylloidea) with particular focus on olfaction. Data from inventories of winter habitats suggest that T. apicalis prefer Picea abies over Pinus sylvestris and Juniperus communis as winter hosts. READ MORE

    Abstract : This thesis deals with machine learning techniques for the extraction of structure and the analysis of the vertebrate olfactory pathway based on related methods. Some of its main contributions are summarized below. READ MORE

  3. 3. Local Purinergic Control of Arteriolar Reactivity in Pancreatic Islets and Renal Glomeruli

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Xiang Gao; Leif Jansson; Olle Hellberg; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; afferent arteriole; islet arteriole; adenosine; A1 receptor; ATP; P2Y receptor; microperfusion; angiotensin II; type 2 diabetes; hypertension; oxidative stress; nitric oxide; tubuloglomerular feedback;

    Abstract : Local control of regional blood flow is exerted mainly through the arterioles. An adequate minute-to-minute regulation of blood perfusion of the kidney and the pancreas is obtained by the modulation of arteriolar reactivity, which will influence the organ function. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analysis of kidney glomerular and microvascular transcriptomes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Author : Liqun He; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Transcriptome; kidney glomerulus; pericytes; EST; microarray; genomics; bioinformatics; systems biology;

    Abstract : Kidney glomeruli play a crucial role in the maintenance of body homeostasis. Many diseases attack the kidney function by primarily affecting glomeruli. However, the transcriptome profiles and the function of the glomerulus is poorly understood. READ MORE
