    Abstract : Pericytes are cells of mesenchymal origin located on the abluminal side, juxtapositioned to the endothelial cells in capillaries, venules and small arterioles. They are important for maintaining vessel integrity in resting tissues as well as the formation and stabilization of new vessels. READ MORE

  2. 2. Molecular Mechanisms in Endothelial Cell Differentiation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Emma Rennel; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pathology; angiogenesis; FGF-2; VEGF-A; signal transduction; in vitro angiogenesis assay; immortalized brain endothelial cells; H-Ras; tetracycline-regulated gene expression; microarray; telomerase immortalized human microvascular endothelial cells; differentiation; Patologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Pathology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Patologi;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels from the pre-existing blood vessels. Blood vessels are composed of endothelial cells and supporting musculature. Angiogenesis is regulated by numerous soluble ligands and by cell-matrix interactions. READ MORE

    Abstract : Stem cells have a great potential to bring about advancements in fields like developmental biology, drug discovery, cancer biology and tissue engineering. In order to be able to use stem cells to their full potential, it is important to have control over their behavior. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hypoxia-Inducible Factors in Tumor Cell Differentiation and Tumor Vascularization

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Alexander Pietras; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HIF-2alpha; cancer; notch; angiogenesis; tumor-initiating cells; hypoxia; neuroblastoma; differentiation;

    Abstract : Mammalian cells, including tumor cells, adapt to hypoxia via stabilization of two transcription factors - Hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1alpha and HIF-2alpha. Among other consequences, hypoxia is a main driving force behind angiogenesis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Amino acid naphthylamidase isozymes in human cells grown in vitro Hormonal regulation and isozyme differentiation in cancer cells and normal cells

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Erik Lundgren; [1972]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The elucidation of regulatory mechanisms in higher organisms represents a front line problem in biochemical genetics. In Man the only material available for experimental studies of regulatory mechanisms is cells cultured in vitro. READ MORE
