  1. 1. Prevalence and Inheritance of Hip Osteoarthritis in Iceland

    University dissertation from Thorvaldur Ingvarsson FSA Central Hospital, 600 Akureyri Iceland

    Author : Thorvaldur Ingvarsson; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; gene; inheritance; age standardiation; prevalence; THR; Hip; OA; traumatologi; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatology; orthopaedics;

    Abstract : Hereditary factors are suggested to contribute to osteoarthritis (OA), but their relative importance is uncertain. Moreover, the underlying specific variations at the genome level remain unknown. The prevalence of hip OA in Iceland was assessed by examining colon radiographs and was found to be at least 5-fold higher compared to Sweden and Denmark. READ MORE

  2. 2. Telomere length - inheritance pattern and role as a biomarker

    University dissertation from Umeå : Medicinsk biovetenskap

    Author : Katarina Nordfjäll; Göran Roos; Thomas von Zglinicki; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; telomere length; peripheral blood; inheritance; breast cancer; survival; polymorphism; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Medical cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Telomeres are repetitive TTAGGG structures ending each chromosome and thereby protecting its integrity. Due to the end-replication problem, telomeres shorten with each cell division. When reaching a critical telomere length (TL), the cells stop dividing and enter replicative senescence. READ MORE

  3. 3. Stress and the Offspring Adaptive Transgenerational Effects of Unpredictability on Behaviour and Gene Expression in Chickens (Gallus gallus)

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Daniel Nätt; Per Jensen; Berry Spruijt; [2008]
    Keywords : Chicken; Red junglefowl; Domestication; Epigenetics; Transgenerational; Inheritance; Gene expression; Microarray; qRT-PCR; Immunogenetics; Immunoglobulin; Estradiol; Steriod hormones; Prenatal stress; Epigenetic inheritance; Adaptation; Stress; Behaviour; VETERINARY MEDICINE Ethology of domestic animals; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Husdjurens etologi;

    Abstract : Environmental stress has shown to affect both the exposed individuals and the development of their offspring. Generally, it is thought that the stressed organism responds to stress by trying to adapt to it. READ MORE

  4. 4. Inheritance of autoimmune neuroinflammation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Pernilla Stridh; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]

    Abstract : Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic neuro-inflammatory disease with anticipated complex etiology. Susceptibility to MS is conferred by numerous genes, with very low odds ratios that explain minute fractions of disease. This indicates that unknown factors are responsible for the remaining genetic contribution, termed the missing heritability . READ MORE

  5. 5. Essays on inheritance, small businesses and energy consumption

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Department of Economics, Uppsala University

    Author : Sebastian Escobar; Mikael Elinder; Katarina Nordblom; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; estates; bequests; inheritance taxes; tax evasion; tax avoidace; liquidity; entrepreneurship; small business; sub-metering; environment; smart meters; energy conservation; quasi experiment;

    Abstract : Essay 1: People’s planning to evade the inheritance tax curtails its merits. However, the extent of planning remains a matter of argument. According to popular belief, it is widespread, but few estimates have been presented. READ MORE
