  1. 1. Epidermal keratinocytes studied by X-ray microanalysis, with special reference to contact dermatitis : In vivo and in vitro studies of functional changes in human cells

    Author : Anders Grängsjö; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; X-ray microanalysis; elements; epidermis; keratinocytes; proliferation; cell membrane damage; Ki67; irritants; intracellular elemental content; keratinocyte culture; HaCaT; NHEK; RT-PCR; immunohistochemistry; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : By determining the intracellular elemental content, information can be obtained on the physiological status of cells. The cellular content of sodium, magnesium, phosphorus, sulfur, chloride, potassium and calcium can be indicative for proliferation, cell membrane damage or cell death. READ MORE

  2. 2. CCN2 – Keratinocyte Interactions In Vitro and In Vivo

    Author : Elizabeth Kiwanuka; Bengt Gerdin; Kristofer Rubin; Filip Farnebo; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : CCN2; connective tissue growth factor; keratinocytes; re-epithelialization; cell migration; cell signaling; Plastikkirurgi; Plastic Surgery;

    Abstract : Cutaneous wound healing is a complex process involving the migration of inflammatory cells to the wound site, deposition of extracellular matrix, and the reestablishment of an intact epithelial barrier. Re-epithelialization depends on the proliferation and directional migration of keratinocytes from the wound edges. READ MORE

  3. 3. Treatment of Skin Wounds with Cell Transplantation and Gene Transfer

    Author : Tor Svensjö; Lunds universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pigs; gene regulation; cell culture; fibroblasts; keratinocytes; wound healing; skin; gene transfer; Transplantation; gene therapy; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : Background: A large number of different wound coverings have been used in order to improve the wound microenvironment, and thus accelerate repair. Since almost two centuries, clinicians and researchers have developed techniques for skin transplantation. READ MORE

  4. 4. In vitro Studies of Genodermatoses Affecting Cytoskeletal Integrity and Lipid Processing in Human Epidermis : Pathogenic Mechanisms and Effects of Retinoid Therapy

    Author : Hao Li; Hans Törmä; Anders Vahlquist; Mikael Ivarsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Congenital Ichthyosiform Erythroderma; Epidermolytic Hyperkeratosis; Ceramides; Keratins; Retinoids; Molecular Probe Techniques; Transglutaminases; Lipoxygenases; Fatty Acid Transporter Proteins; Keratinocytes; Epidermis; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Autosomal dominant epidermolytic ichthyosis (EI) is a rare disease characterized by intra-epidermal blistering due to mutations in either of two keratin genes, KRT1 and KRT10, expressed by suprabasal keratinocytes. Autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis (ARCI) is a non-blistering, hyperkeratotic disease caused by mutations in one of the following genes: ABCA12, ALOX12B, ALOXE3, TGM1, CYP4F22, NIPAL4 and SLC27A4, which are all essential for skin barrier homeostasis.

  5. 5. Molecular and microscopical analysis of pathogenic streptococci - studies on surface proteins interacting with human cells and extracellular matrix

    Author : Marta Bober; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Streptococcus pyogenes; streptococcal leucine rich repeat protein; M protein; collagen; keratinocytes;

    Abstract : Association to specific host tissue structures allows pathogenic bacteria to establish an infection and facilitates the spread within its host. Interactions between bacterial surface structures and human proteins might determine the outcome of the infection. Streptococcus pyogenes (S. READ MORE
