  1. 1. Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Tumor Growth Inhibition and Cartilage Differentiation

    University dissertation from Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Author : Laura Varas; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomedicinska vetenskaper; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Medicin människa och djur ; mesenchymal stem cell; Biomedical sciences; tumor growth inhibition; FGF2; cartilage; integrin alpha11beta1; integrin alpha10beta1;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis has been focused on mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). In the two first studies, the effects of MSCs on tumor growth and development in vitro and in vivo was investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Too close for comfort The role of Contact-Dependent growth Inhibition (CDI) in interbacterial competition and cooperation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marcus Wäneskog; Sanna Koskiniemi; Paul Rainey; [2020]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bacterial interactions; cell-cell binding; contact-dependent growth inhibition; CDI; CdiB; CdiA; CdiI; outer-membrane receptor; BamA; OmpC; OmpF; extracellular toxin delivery; Toxin-Antitoxin; TA-system; persister cells; stress tolerance; stress response; rpoS; rssB; quorum sensing; multicellular behavior; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Abstract : Contact-Dependent growth inhibition (CDI) was discovered in 2005 in the E. coli isolate EC93. Since then our knowledge of CDI systems and their impact on bacterial communities have increased exponentially. READ MORE

  3. 3. Expressions of mercury-selenium interaction in vitro

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Peter Frisk; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; growth inhibition; inorganic mercury; interaction; organic mercury; selenite; selenomethionine; toxicity; uptake; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; Biomedical Radiation Science; biomedicinsk strålningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Interaction between mercury and selenium has previously been observed both in man and in animals. The aim of this work was to study expressions of interaction between mercury and selenium in human K-562 cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the binding of growth-promoting polyamines to proteoglycans: Implications for growth-regulation and polycation-mediated gene transfer

    University dissertation from Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Lund University

    Author : Mattias Belting; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; cationic lipid.; gene transfer; gene therapy; cell growth; polyamine transport; spermine; polyamine; growth-inhibition; heparan sulphate; dermatan sulphate; Proteoglycan; glycosaminoglycan; cytogenetics; Genetik; cytogenetik;

    Abstract : Initial investigations were directed at studying the interaction between polyamines and various glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). The polyamine spermine displayed binding to dermatan sulphate (DS) and heparan sulphate (HS) with similar (Kd, 3.9 x 10-4 M) and higher (Kd, 0.37 x 10-6 M) affinity, respectively, than to DNA.

  5. 5. Involvement of Heparan Sulphate Biosynthesis and Turnover in Cell Proliferation. A Novel Role for Nitric Oxide in Recycling of Heparan Sulphate Proteoglycans

    University dissertation from BMC Biomedical Centre, Lund University

    Author : Katrin Mani; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nitrite.; nitric oxide; growth-inhibition; xyloside; glypican; heparan sulphate; Proteoglycan; glycosaminoglycan; Clinical biology; Klinisk biologi;

    Abstract : The present investigation focuses on the role of HS metabolism in cell proliferation. The effect of the HS priming ß-D-xyloside, 2-(6-hydroxynaphthyl)-O-ß-D-xylopyranoside (Xyl-2-Nap-6-OH) on the proliferation of normal and transformed cells was studied. READ MORE
