  1. 1. Genotypic and phenotypic spectrum of mitochondrial diseases with focus on early onset mitochondrial encephalopathies

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Kalliopi Sofou; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mitochondrial diseases; mitochondrial encephalopathy; Alpers syndrome; Leigh syndrome; neuroimaging; whole exome sequencing;

    Abstract : Early-onset mitochondrial encephalopathies comprise a challenging group of neurodegenerative disorders. This is due to their progressive nature, often leading to major disability and premature death, as well as their diagnostic complexity and lack of customized treatments. READ MORE

    Abstract : Neuromuscular disorders can be subdivided into anterior horn cell disorders, neuropathies, myasthenic disorders and myopathies. Some multisystem disorders, such as myotonic dystrophy and mitochondrial encephalomyopathies, are traditionally also included. READ MORE

  4. 4. Crisis in Energy Metabolism - Mitochondrial Defects and a New Disease Entity

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Gittan Kollberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Energy metabolism; Mitochondrial Disorders; mtDNA; multiple mtDNA deletions; Alpers-Huttenlocher syndrome; POLG1; GYS1; glycogen synthase; point mutation; Polymerase gamma;

    Abstract : Impairment of energy metabolism may be associated with severe implications for affected individuals since all fundamental cell functions are energy-dependent. Disorders of energy metabolism are often genetic and associated with defects in the oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mitochondrial function in sepsis - Temporal evolvement of respiratory capacity in human blood cells

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Fredrik Sjövall; [2013]
