  1. 1. Biomarkers in non-small cell lung carcinoma : methodological aspects and influence of gender, histology and smoking habits on estrogen receptor and epidermal growth factor family receptor signalling

    Author : Christina Karlsson; Karin Piehl-Aulin; Ulf Tidefelt; Gisela Helenius; Leif Johansson; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Non-small cell lung carcinoma; estrogen receptor; epidermal growth factor receptor; HER-4; tissue microarray; immunohistochemistry; smoking habits; in situ hybridisation; Onkologi; Oncology;

    Abstract : Non-small cell lung carcinoma is a leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide. There are gender and smoking associated differences both in tumour types and clinical outcome. Squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) are more frequent among smoking men while females develop adenocarcinomas (ADCA). READ MORE

  2. 2. Pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide : Expression and neurotrophic activity in the rat brain

    Author : Ylva Skoglösa; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; in situ hybridisation; rat; TBI; BDNF; NGF; GDNF; PACAP; PRI; TUNEL; apoptosis; CNS; PNS; neuropeptides; neurotrophic factors; reactive oxygen species; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi; Neurology; neurologi;

    Abstract : Neurotrophic factors play an important role in regulating naturally occurring cell death during neurogenesis. In addition to classical neurotrophic factors, some neurotransmitters and neuropeptides have been shown to exhibit neurotrophic activities. READ MORE

  3. 3. Experimental and Clinical Studies of SLPI, with Special Reference to IgE-Mediated Allergic Reactions

    Author : Ulla Westin; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; in situ hybridisation; immunohistochemistry; allergic rhinitis; atopic subjects; IgE-mediated histamine release; mast cell proteases; plasma protease inhibitors; SLPI; human leukocyte proteases; Immunology; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi;

    Abstract : In this study we demonstrated the production of SLPI (Secretory Leukocyte Protease Inhibitor) in serous glands in the nasal mucosa. We have shown that the pattern of the expression of mRNA corresponds to the encoded protein. The encoded protein was detected by immunohistochemical methods and mRNA was discovered by in situ hybridisation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on Human Endogenous Retroviruses (HERVs) with Special Focus on ERV3

    Author : Ann-Catrin Andersson; Bengt Widegren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; human endogenous retroviruses; HERV; ERV3; expression; in situ hybridisation; real-time PCR; U-937; retinoic acid.; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : Human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) represent approximately 7% of the human genome. This investigation was focused on one particular HERV, ERV3, with the main purpose of characterising its gene expression patterns and genomic distribution of ERV3-like sequences. READ MORE

  5. 5. Studies of a Proteinase-activated Cell Surface Receptor

    Author : Sverker Nystedt; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; receptor; proteinase; PAR-2; molecular cloning; in situ hybridisation; Expression; G-protein; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : The G protein-coupled receptors form one of the largest families of proteins involved in signalling between cells. It contains receptors for molecules as diverse as biogenic amines, glycoproteins and enzymes. The manuscripts included in this thesis together describe the initial characterisation of a previously unknown receptor of this class. READ MORE
