  1. 1. The Biological Importance of the Amino Acid Transporter SLC38A10 : Characterization of a Knockout Mouse

    Author : Frida A. Lindberg; Robert Fredriksson; Erika Roman; Karin Nordenankar; Vootele Vöikar; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Solute carrier; SLC; SNAT10; SLC38A10; phenotyping; behavior; amino acids; knockout mouse model; Farmaceutisk vetenskap; Pharmaceutical Science;

    Abstract : The biggest group of transporters, the solute carriers (SLCs), has more than 400 members, and about 30% of these are still orphan. In order to decipher their biological function and possible role in disease, there is a need for characterization of these. READ MORE

  2. 2. Non-invasive ultrasound-based cardiovascular imaging in mouse models of atherosclerosis

    Author : Julia Grönros; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : atherosclerosis; ultrasound-based imaging; cardiovascular disease; coronary artery; mouse; color Doppler echocardiography; ultrasound biomicroscopy; statin;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is a chronic multi-factorial vascular disease. It generally requires large clinical settings and over many years to study the disease progression in man. Genetically modified mouse models of atherosclerosis have dramatically increased research feasibility within this area. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fcγ Receptors in the Immune Response

    Author : Teresita Díaz de Ståhl; Jan van de Winkel; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Fc Receptors; IgG Receptors; IgE Receptors; Immune regulation; In vivo animal models; Mouse; Rh prophylaxis; Rheumatoid arthritis; Transgenic knockout; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : Circulating immune complexes play an important role in the modulation of antibody responses and in the pathogenesis of immune diseases. This thesis deals with the in vivo regulatory properties of antibodies and their specific Fc receptors. READ MORE

  4. 4. Investigating the function of Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase

    Author : Emma Vernersson Lindahl; Bengt Hallberg; Ruth Palmer; Göran Roos; Carina Hellberg; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) was discovered in 1994, as a chromosomal translocation, t(2;5)(p23;q35), often seen in Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphomas (ALCL). Since then ALK has been extensively studied in this disease as well as in different model organisms. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Role of Hox Transcription Factors in the Regulation of Hematopoiesis

    Author : Mattias Magnusson; Avdelningen för molekylärmedicin och genterapi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hematologi; extracellulära vätskor; extracellular fluids; Haematology; Hox genes; Knockout; Hematopoietic stem cells; Hematopoiesis; Transcription Factor;

    Abstract : Hematopoiesis is a lifelong, dynamic process, originating from a low number of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) residing in the adult bone marrow with the ability to self-renew and generate all blood lineages throughout life. Recent findings have demonstrated that the Homeobox (Hox) transcription factors are important regulators of both normal and malignant hematopoiesis, controlling proliferation, differentiation and self-renewal of hematopoietic cells at different levels of the hematopoietic hierarchy.
