  1. 1. Renal Klotho in mineral metabolism

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology

    Author : Risul Amin; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Calcium and phosphorous are critical elements in a number of physiological processes, including maintenance of bone structure, cell signaling and energy metabolism. Their endocrine regulation is tightly controlled through a number of feedback mechanisms involving parathyroid hormone (PTH), vitamin D and the recently discovered fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23).

  2. 2. Bone Metabolism in Men

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Peter Gillberg; Olof Johnell; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Male osteoporosis; Bone mineral density; Growth hormone; Insulin-like growth factors; Sex hormones; Growth hormone replacement; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the importance of the growth hormone (GH)/insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system and sex steroids for male bone metabolism has been investigated, and the effects of continuous low dose GH replacement in GH deficient (GHD) adults. In a population-based sample of men, positive correlations were found between bone mineral density (BMD) and IGF-I, IGF-II, IGF binding protein (IGFBP)-3 and the testosterone/sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) ratio.

  3. 3. Bone alkaline phosphatase isoforms in chronic kidney disease mineral and bone disorder

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Mathias Haarhaus; Per Magnusson; Anders Fernström; Bengt Lindholm; Goce Spasovski; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with increased mortality and cardiovascular complications. Disturbances in mineral metabolism occur early <luring the course of CKD and several components of the CKD-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD) are independent predictors of mortality. READ MORE

  4. 4. Osteoprotegerin in Bone Metabolism

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Helena Brändström; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Bone; osteoprotegerin; osteoblasts; polymorphism; cytokines; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Bone turnover, remodeling, is a constant process replacing old bone with new. This complex cellular event involves resorption by osteoclasts and formation of new bone by osteoblasts. The balance between osteoblastic and osteoclastic activity is under regulation by several endocrine and paracrine factors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Carbohydrate Levels and Fructan Metabolism in Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) Leaves : effects of manipulating mineral nutrition and photosynthesis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Changwen Wang; Björn Thorsteinsson; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fysiologisk botanik; Physiological Botany;

    Abstract : Carbohydrate levels and fructan metabolism were studied in the leaves of barley (Hordeum vulgare L. cv. Agneta) plants subjected to phosphorous (P)-deficiency, nitrogen (N)-deficiency and N-resupply following the N-deficiency. READ MORE
