  1. 1. Molecular Studies of Mast Cell Migration and Apoptosis : Two Ways of Regulating Mast Cell Numbers at Sites of Inflammation

    Author : Jessica Alfredsson; Gunnar Nilsson; Hans-Uwe Simon; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pathology; mast cell; SCF; IL-3; FcεRI; migration; apoptosis; Bim; Bcl-2; Bcl-XL; Akt; FOXO; MAPK; Patologi; Pathology; Patologi;

    Abstract : Upon activation mast cells release numerous proinflammatory mediators. With this feature, mast cells play an important role in host defense against pathogens, and are involved in tissue remodeling and wound healing. However, in cases of excessive inflammation the effects of mast cells are detrimental. READ MORE

  2. 2. Eosinophil Apoptosis

    Author : Kristina Seton; Joachim Lundahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell biology; Apoptosis; Programmed Cell Death; Survival; Eosinophils; Inflammatory Diseases; Resolution of inflammation; Functions; Flow cytometry; Cellbiologi; Cell biology; Cellbiologi; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : Apoptosis or programmed cell death is crucial for the resolution of inflammation, and phagocytosis of apoptotic cells initiates the release of actively anti-inflammatory responses from the phagocytes. Eosinophils are one of the most potent inflammatory cells in the body and is involved in a number of diseases, most commonly associated with parasitic infections and allergic diseases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Imaging-based methods for NK cell studies at the single-cell level

    Author : Quentin Verron; Björn Önfelt; Niklas Sandström; Michael Dustin; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; NK cells; microscopy; single-cell; Biological and Biomedical Physics; Biologisk och biomedicinsk fysik;

    Abstract : The immune system provides defense against infectious agents such as viruses, bacteria and parasites. Besides eliminating extracellular agents, the immune system also constantly monitors our own cells for signs of transformation, including tumor development and virus infection. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cell death in atherosclerosis

    Author : Milita Crisby; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; atherosclerosis; carotid artery stenosis; ischemic stroke; apoptosis; necrosis; lipid peroxidation; plaque stability; pravastatin; inflammation; 27-[alpha]-hydroxylase;

    Abstract : Rupture of atherosclerotic lesions is recognized as the major cause of acute cerebrovascular and coronary syndromes. The characteristics of the typical vulnerable plaque include increased inflammatory cells at the shoulder region, a large lipid core, a thin fibrous cap with few collagen fibers and smooth muscle cells.

  5. 5. Mechanisms for and Effects of Airway Epithelial Damage in Asthma

    Author : Anne-Jacqueline Relova; Eythor Björnsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; asthma; airways; cytokines; epithelium; tight junctions; mast cells; Cellbiologi; Cell biology; Cellbiologi; medicinsk cellbiologi; Medical Cell Biology;

    Abstract : The airway epithelium plays a crucial role in protecting the underlying connective tissue (CT) from noxious agents. Damage and shedding of the epithelium are observed in the airways of asthma, cystic fibrosis and rhinitis patients. READ MORE
