  1. 1. Cytokine Regulation of Hematopoietic Stem Cells and Lymphopoiesis

    University dissertation from Hematopoietic Stem Cell Laboratory

    Author : Natalija Buza-Vidas; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; extracellular fluids; Hematologi; Haematology; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; lineage commitment; cytokines; lymphopoiesis; extracellulära vätskor; transplantation; hematopoietic stem cells;

    Abstract : Large numbers of blood cells need to be continuously replaced in order to sustain the crucial functions of the immune system, oxygen transport and blood clotting. The large diversity of cell types required to maintain the integrity of the blood system are all produced from blood forming or hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). READ MORE

  2. 2. Roles of hematopoietin and cytokine tyrosine kinase receptors in early lymphopoiesis

    University dissertation from Hematopoietic Stem Cell Laboratory

    Author : Christina Jensen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IL -7; FLT3 Ligand; cytokines; lymphopoiesis; hematopoiesis; TSLP; apoptosis;

    Abstract : Cytokines have been shown to have important roles in lymphopoiesis. However, many questions remain unresolved. Among other, while the action of interleukin (IL)-7 in alpha beta T cell development in mouse seems to be largely mediated through permissive survival signaling, the possible permissive role of IL-7 in early B cell development is disputed.

  3. 3. Immunomodulation by estrogen and estren

    University dissertation from Hematopoietic Stem Cell Laboratory

    Author : Ulrika Islander; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; estrogen receptor knock-out mice; estrogen; estren; estrogen receptor; lymphopoiesis; T cells; B cells; immunoglobulin; inflammation;

    Abstract : Estrogen affects the development and regulation of the immune system. Treatment of gonadectomized mice with estrogen results in suppression of T and B lymphopoiesis, as well as decreased delayed type hypersensitivity reaction, granulocyte mediated inflammation and levels of IL-6 in serum.

  4. 4. Switching ON Fetal B Lymphopoiesis

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Trine Kristiansen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2018]
    Keywords : B-1 B cells; Lin28; Fetal hematopoietic stem cells;

    Abstract : B-1a cells are innate-like lymphocytes that develop primarily during fetal and neonatal life, whereas adult bone marrow (BM) hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) preferentially give rise to follicular B-2 cells. Functioning at the interface of the innate and adaptive immune systems, B-1a cells provide a non-redundant first line of defense prior to the temporally delayed establishment of a B-2 cell response.

  5. 5. Modulation of estrogen receptors alpha and beta. Effects on the immune system

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Malin Erlandsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Estrogen affects the development and function of the immune system. Gonadectomized mice treated with estrogen display suppressed T and B lymphopoiesis and inhibited T cell and granulocyte dependent inflammation, while mature B cells are stimulated to produce more immunoglobulins.
