  1. 1. Macrophages, Nitric oxide synthases and Heme oxygenases: possible roles during peripheral nerve regeneration

    University dissertation from Department of Animal Physiology, Lund University

    Author : Sofia Magnusson; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; satellite cells; peripheral ganglia; cell signalling; nerve regeneration; heme oxygenase; Macrophages; nitric oxide synthase; Animal physiology; Djurfysiologi;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to investigate the suggestions that macrophages, and the systems generating nitric oxide (NO) and carbon monoxide (CO), i.e. nitric oxide synthases (NOS) and heme oxygenases (HO), could be important for peripheral nerve regeneration. READ MORE

  2. 2. Propionibacterium acnes and its phages

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Rolf Lood; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Propionibacterium acnes; biofilm; bacteriophage; Siphovirus; pseudolysogeny; heme oxygenase; free radicals; recombinant protein expression; vector;

    Abstract : Microorganisms are everywhere! They can tolerate many diverse extreme environments, such as the human body. Even though many of us might associate the word microorganism with infections and disease, most are actually either harmless or even beneficial for us. READ MORE

  3. 3. Novel Fatty Acid Dioxygenases of Human and Plant Pathogenic Fungi Studies by Gene Deletion and Expression

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik Jernerén; Ernst Oliw; Ivo Feussner; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; aspergilli; dioxygenase; oxygenase; Magnaporthe oryzae; Gaeumannomyces graminis; Lasiodiplodia theobromae; jasmonic acid; linoleate diol synthase; cyclooxygenase; prostaglandin H synthase; cytochrome P450; oxylipin; hydroperoxide isomerase; allene oxide synthase; PHARMACY Pharmaceutical pharmacology; FARMACI Farmaceutisk farmakologi; Biochemical Pharmacology; Biokemisk farmakologi;

    Abstract : The dioxygenase-cytochrome P450 fusion proteins (DOX-CYP) comprise a heme-containing enzyme family that shares structural and catalytic properties with mammalian prostaglandin H (PGH) synthases. 7,8-Linoleate diol synthase (7,8-LDS) of Gaeumannomyces graminis was first characterized, and DOX-CYP enzymes are of mechanistic and biological interest.

  4. 4. Response mechanisms of normal hematopoietic cells and leukemic cells to genotoxic agents and novel therapeutic strategies

    University dissertation from Experimental cancer research

    Author : Andreas Hedblom; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hematopoietic stem cells; genotoxic damage; cell cycle; leukemia; heme oxygenase; differentiation;

    Abstract : Hematopoiesis is initiated by a rare population of hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) in the bone marrow (BM). HSCs give rise to red blood cells and white blood cells of myeloid and lymphoid lineages. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of Insulin Secretion in Relation to Nitric Oxide, Carbon Monoxide and Acid alpha-Glucoside Hydrolase Activities

    University dissertation from Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Author : Henrik Mosén; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endokrinologi; secreting systems; diabetology; Endocrinology; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; GK rat; insulin secretion; carbon monoxide; acid alpha-glucoside hydrolases; nitric oxide; heme oxygenase; isoforms of nitric oxide synthase; diabetologi; sekretion;

    Abstract : The main stimulus for insulin secretion is elevated blood glucose levels. In this thesis the aim was to study less well-known systems involved in the complex regulation of glucose-stimulated insulin release, emphasizing the role of the lysosomal/vacuolar system and the associated glycogenolytic acid alpha-glucoside hydrolases, but also the HO-CO and NOS-NO systems.
