  1. 1. Functional analysis of the mouse J chain

    Author : Lena Erlandsson; Immunologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Immunology; diphtheria toxin A; plasma cell; mucosa; J chain; knock-out; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi;

    Abstract : We have in this study analyzed the function of the murine Joining chain (J chain) in vivo. J chain is a polypeptide found in sera and secretions in complex with pentameric IgM and dimeric IgA. READ MORE

  2. 2. Islet xenotransplantation : An immunological study in the pig-to-mouse model

    Author : Birgitta Benda; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Successful clinical xenotransplantation, i.e., transplantation between species, would eliminate the shortage of donor organs. In order to study the acute cellular rejection reaction following discordant xenogeneic transplantation, an experimental pig-to- mouse islet xenotransplantation model was established. READ MORE

  3. 3. Across Borders : A Histological and Physiological Study of the Subthalamic Nucleus in Reward and Movement

    Author : Nadine Schweizer; Åsa Wallén-Mackenzie; Dai Stephens; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; subthalamic nucleus; STN; basal ganglia; locomotion; hyperlocomotion; rearing; ventral tegmental area; VTA; dopamine; glutamate; vesicular glutamate transporter 2; Vglut2; Parkinson s disease; deep brain stimulation; subpopulation; conditional knock-out; optogenetic; co-expression; in situ hybridization; self-administration; reward behavior; mouse genetics;

    Abstract : The basal ganglia are the key circuitry controlling movement and reward behavior. Both locomotion and reward-related behavior are also modified by dopaminergic input from the substantia nigra and the ventral tegmental area (VTA). READ MORE

  4. 4. LXR and aromatase knock-out mice : Animal models providing insight into human diseases

    Author : Hyun-Jin Kim; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : In our characterization of mouse strains carrying mutations in nuclear receptor and aromatase genes we have found phenotypes which resemble four human diseases: benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), Sjögren s syndrome (SS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. The work in this thesis was designed to understand the roles of LXRalpha, LXRbeta and aromatase in development of these diseases and to investigate whether these animal models help us (1) to understand the etiology of the corresponding human diseases and (2) to develop new therapeutic approaches for the treatment of these diseases.

  5. 5. Melatonin receptors in pancreatic islets - Linking a genetic variant to functional phenotype

    Author : Cecilia Nagorny; Diabetes - molekylär metabolism; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Melatonin receptor; knock out mice; IVGTT; OGTT; ITT; Hyperinsulinemic clamp; MTNR1B; MT2;

    Abstract : Defective insulin secretion and insulin resistance are the two hallmarks of Type 2 Diabetes (T2D). The pathophysiology of the disease is not fully understood but genetic susceptibility for the disease is a new major player in the understanding of the underlying mechanisms. READ MORE
