  1. 1. Studies of prostaglandin E2 formationin human monocytes

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstad University

    Author : Sofia Karlsson; Karlstads universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; prostaglandin E2; arachidonic acid; phospholipase A2; cyclooxygenase; prostaglandin E synthase; human monocytes; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Medical cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Medicinsk cellbiologi; Biomedical Sciences; Biomedicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : Prostaglandin (PG) E2 is an eicosanoid derived from the polyunsaturated twenty carbon fatty acid arachidonic acid (AA). PGE2 has physiological as well as pathophysiological functions and is known to be a key mediator of inflammatory responses. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human mononuclear phagocytes : Production of reactive oxygen species generated by the NADPH oxidase

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Agneta Johansson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1995]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Human professional phagocytes constitute the first line of defence against invading microorganisms. With a membrane-bound enzyme system, the NADPH oxidase, these cells generate bactericidal metabolites. Activation of NADPH oxidase results in a generation of reactive oxygen species, e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Monocytes and macrophages, with a focus of Crohn's disease

    University dissertation from Gastroenterology, Dept of Clinical Sciences, Malmö, Lund University

    Author : Susanne Thiesen; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Crohn s disease; Cystatin C; Cytokines; Intestine; Macrophages; Monocytes; Gene-expression;

    Abstract : Monocytes and macrophages are part of the body’s first line of defense, eliminating pathogens by phagocytosis or by releasing a broad array of inflammatory mediators, such as cytokines, chemokines and proteases. In humans, three subsets of monocytes are described with seemingly different functions. READ MORE

  4. 4. The osteogenic potential of human mesenchymal stem cells: Novel markers and key factors for differentiation

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Cecilia Granéli; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mesenchymal stem cells; Mesenchymal stromal cells; Osteogenic differentiation; Adipogenic differentiation; Bone regeneration; Inflammation; Monocytes; Infection; Bacterial membrane vesicles; Compromised bone healing; Cell surface proteins; CD-markers; Osseointegration; Regenerative medicine;

    Abstract : Mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent stem cells with ability to differentiate into cells of the connective tissue lineage, such as adipocytes, osteoblasts and chondrocytes, both in vitro and in vivo. The main objective of the present thesis was to study different aspects of the osteogenic potential of MSCs. READ MORE
