  1. 1. Functional analysis of Ipf1/Pdx1, MFng and Id during pancreatic growth and differentiation

    Author : Per Svensson; Helena Edlund; Henrik Semb; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : pancreas; proliferation; differentiation; signalling; expression; FgfR2IIIb; ErbB3; spondin1; MFng; Id; molekylär medicin genetik och patologi ; molecular medicine  genetics and pathology ;

    Abstract : The pancreas is an endodermally derived organ consisting of three major cell lineages. The endocrine cells, organised into the Islets of Langerhans, regulate blood glucose homeostasis by producing and secreting hormones such as glucagon and insulin into the bloodstream. READ MORE

  2. 2. Structural studies of sugar binding proteins

    Author : Sanjeewani Sooriyaarachchi; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Binding proteins, which are themselves non-enzymatic, play an important role in enzymatic reactions as well as non-enzymatic processes by providing a binding platform for the specific recognition of particular molecules. For example, periplasmic binding proteins play a vital role in nutrient uptake in Gram-negative bacteria. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sustainable Biobased Protein Superabsorbents from Agricultural Co-Products

    Author : Antonio Jose Capezza; Mikael S. Hedenqvist; Eva Johansson; Antonio Guerrero; Antonio José Capezza; KTH; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; proteins; circularity; superabsorbents; sustainability; acylation; extrusion; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : The preparation of sustainable protein superabsorbents from agricultural industry side-streams is reported. Wheat gluten (WG), a co-product from the ethanol/starch industry, was processed into foams with sponge-like behavior and high liquid uptake. READ MORE

  4. 4. Regulation and functions of basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors in neuroblastoma cells

    Author : Paula Persson; Institutionen för translationell medicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oncology; Cytology; Id; Olf EBF; ubiquilin-1; HASH-1; bHLH; Neuroblastoma; neuronal differentiation; cancer; onkologi; cancerology; Cytologi;

    Abstract : Neuroblastoma is a childhood tumor derived from primordial neural crest cells. The tumor cells exhibit a phenotype similar to that of developing neuroblasts, which indicates that the tumor arises due to perturbed differentiation of the sympathetic nervous system. READ MORE

  5. 5. Transcriptional regulation in neuroblastoma cells under normoxic and hypoxic conditions

    Author : Annika Jögi; Institutionen för translationell medicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oncology; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer; Cytology; HIF-2; HIF-1; hypoxia; Id; HES-1; bHLH; Neuroblastoma; neuronal differentiation;

    Abstract : The childhood malignancy neuroblastoma develops from early cells of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), and the tumors often produce catecholamines. Neuroblastoma cells retain several characteristics of immature sympathetic cells including the expression of a number of transcription factors normally expressed during embryogenesis. READ MORE
