  1. 1. Glucose and lipid metabolism in insulin resistance an experimental study in fat cells

    University dissertation from Umeå : Folkhälsa och klinisk medicin

    Author : Jonas Burén; Umeå universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Public health; adipocyte; insulin resistance; type 2 diabetes; insulin signalling; glucose uptake; insulin; glucose; dexamethasone; insulin receptor substrate; protein kinase B; GLUT4; lipoprotein lipase; Folkhälsomedicin; MEDICINE Social medicine Public health medicine research areas; MEDICIN Socialmedicin Folkhälsomedicinska forskningsområden; medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes is usually caused by a combination of pancreatic β-cell failure and insulin resistance in target tissues like liver, muscle and fat. Insulin resistance is characterised by an impaired effect of insulin to reduce hepatic glucose production and to promote glucose uptake in peripheral tissues. READ MORE

  2. 2. Metabolic Engineering of the Central Carbon Metabolism in Streptococcus thermophilus for Enhanced Exopolysaccharide Production

    University dissertation from Applied Microbiology (LTH)

    Author : Malin Svensson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; Biokemisk teknik; Biochemical technology; Analytisk kemi; Analytical chemistry; metabolism; Biokemi; Metabolism; mykologi; Biochemistry; virologi; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virology; mycology; bacteriology; Streptococcus thermophilus; Microbiology; Metabolic engineering; Lactic acid bacteria; Exopolysaccharides; Central carbon metabolism;

    Abstract : The lactic acid bacterium, Streptococcus thermophilus, is used in the dairy industry in mixed cultures with Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus for the production of yoghurt. Many strains of S. thermophilus produce exopolysaccharides (EPSs) which affect the texture and viscosity of fermented food products. READ MORE

  3. 3. Control of metabolism and hormone secretion from pancreatic alpha and beta cells

    University dissertation from Molecular Metabolism

    Author : Jelena Stamenkovic; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CLOCK genes; insulin; glucagon; metabolites; mitochondria; knock out;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Diabetes mellitus är en endokrin sjukdom. Hos friska individer producerar beta och alpha cellerna i bukspottkörteln insulin och glukagon, de viktigaste hormonerna för att reglera blodglukos¬koncentrationen. Insulin utsöndras som svar på förhöjda blodglukosnivåer. READ MORE

  4. 4. Search for molecular and metabolic mechanisms contributing to impaired β-cell function

    University dissertation from Units of Epigenetics and Diabetes and Molecular Metabolism, Department of Clinical Sciences, Malmö

    Author : Siri Malmgren; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HIF-1α; oxygen consumption; β-cell; Insulin secretion; Type 2 Diabetes; mitochondrial metabolism; metabolic profiling; Lipotoxicity; Histone acetylation; Histone methylation;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Diabetes är en endokrin sjukdom som också kallas sockersjuka. Den kännetecknas av förhöjda mängder socker i blodet. Halten av socker i blodet, blodsockret, styrs av hormonet insulin, som produceras av β-celler i Langerhanska öar i bukspottskörteln. READ MORE

  5. 5. Chemical genetics discloses the importance of heme and glucose metabolism in Chlamydia trachomatis pathogenesis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Patrik Engström; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Chlamydiae; heme metabolism; glucose metabolism; glucose-6-phosphate; RB-to-EB transition; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : Chlamydiae are important human bacterial pathogens with an intracellular life cycle that consists of two distinct bacterial forms, an infectious form (EB) that infects the eukaryotic host cell, and a non-infectious form (RB) that allows intracellular proliferation. To be successful, chlamydiae need to alternate between EB and RB to generate infectious EB’s which are competent to infect new host cells. READ MORE
