  1. 1. Genetic Characterization of Bone and Soft Tissue Tumors

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Genetics, Lund University

    Author : Anna Dahlen; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; cytogenetik; Genetik; cytogenetics; mesenchymal tumor; pericytoma; Genetics; chondroma; lipoma;

    Abstract : Bone and soft tissue tumors (BSTT) constitute a heterogeneous group of neoplasms of mesenchymal and neuroectodermal origin. Although many BSTT are rare, it has become clear that BSTT are characterized by recurrent acquired chromosomal aberrations, and the general aim of this thesis have been to apply molecular genetic and molecular cytogenetic techniques to further characterize recurrent breakpoints and deletions, and to search for candidate target genes.

  2. 2. Fine needle aspiration diagnosis of spindle cell tumors of soft tissue, including the use of ancillary methods, and correlation with clinical data

    University dissertation from Department of Patology & Cytology Lund University Hospital 221 85 Lund Sweden

    Author : Henryk Domanski; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Patologi allmän ; patologisk anatomi; General pathology; pathological anatomy; spindle cell lipoma; soft tissue; spindle cell tumors; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Medicin människa och djur ; schwannoma; neurilemoma; leiomyosarcoma; immunocytochemistry; FNA; fine needle aspiration; dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans; elastofibroma dorsi; Cytology; electron microscopy;

    Abstract : Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is gaining increased popularity in the diagnosis of soft tissue lesions. FNAC used as a primary examination method to obtain a morphologic diagnosis, has been part of the diagnostic work-up of patients admitted to the Musculoskeletal Tumor Center of the Lund University Hospital since 1972.

  3. 3. Regulation of the vascular smooth muscle cell phenotype

    University dissertation from Department of Patology & Cytology Lund University Hospital 221 85 Lund Sweden

    Author : Henrik Lindskog; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; angiogenesis; embryonic stem cells; vascular smooth muscle cell; smooth muscle cell; pericyte; phenotypic modulation; lipoma preferred partner; ectra-cellular matrix; zinc finger protein 148;

    Abstract : Smooth muscle cells (SMC) are present in many internal organs such as the blood vessels and the gastrointestinal channel. Their main functions are to provide stability to the tissue and to provide contractile capability. SMC are not terminally differentiated but can switch between several phenotypes, which is also known as phenotypic modulation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Developmental origin and molecular regulation of vascular smooth muscle cells

    University dissertation from Department of Patology & Cytology Lund University Hospital 221 85 Lund Sweden

    Author : Per Wasteson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; smooth muscle cell; aorta; cell origin; lateral plate mesoderm; paraxial mesoderm; lipoma preferred partner; serum response factor; neointimal hyperplasia; angiotensin II; platelet-derived growth factor-B;

    Abstract : Several pathologies of the vascular system have been suggested to be dependent on the smooth muscle cells (SMCs) that build up the vessel wall. Aortic SMCs have been proposed to derive from lateral plate mesoderm. READ MORE

  5. 5. CYTOGENETIC AND MOLECULAR GENETIC CHARACTERIZATION OF LIPOMAS

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Genetics, Lund University

    Author : Hammurabi Bartuma; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; soft tissue tumors; adipocytic tumors; conventional lipomas; spindle cell lipoma; HMGA2; cytogenetic; molecular genetic; SNP array; GGE;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis was to study cytogenetic and molecular genetic aberrations in lipomas. For this purpose, chromosome banding analysis, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), as well as high resolution single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)–arrays were used to identify recurrent chromosomal aberrations in lipomas.
