  1. 1. Cyclic Nucleotide Phosphodiesterase 3B: Regulation in rat adipocytes and 3T3-L1 cells

    Author : Tova Landström; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 3T3-L1 TNF-alpha; adipocyte; insulin; p70S6 kinase; mitogen-activated protein kinase; protein kinase B; phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase; phosphodiesterase 3B; cAMP; lipolysis; phosphorylation; signal transduction; Biochemistry; Metabolism; Biokemi; metabolism;

    Abstract : Insulin stimulation of rat adipocytes results in phosphorylation and activation of the cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase 3B (PDE3B), a key enzyme in the antilipolytic signalling pathway of this hormone. In this thesis, the site phosphorylated in PDE3B upon stimulation of rat adipocytes with insulin and/or the beta-adrenergic agonist, isoproterenol is identified. READ MORE

  2. 2. Protein Kinase Inhibition in Late Cerebral Ischemia after Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    Author : Saema Ansar; Lund Medicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; protein kinase; cerebral ischemia; subarachnoid hemorrage; neurofysiologi; neuropsykologi;

    Abstract : The cerebral ischemia that occur after a subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) often results in death or severe disability and is a significant cause of stroke. Our hypothesis is that cerebral ischemia leads to pathophysiological receptor changes on the vascular smooth muscle cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular targets for glucocorticoids in macrophages: cytosolic phospholipase A2 and cytokine formation

    Author : Karin Gewert; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pharmacognosy; Pharmacological sciences; signal transduction; dexamethasone; cytosolic phospholipase A2; glucocorticoids; macrophages; protein kinase C; mitogen-activated protein kinases; TNF-alpha; IL-1beta; protein phosphatases; okadaic acid; pharmacy; toxicology; Farmakologi; farmakognosi; farmaci; toxikologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this investigation has been to study mechanisms by which glucocorticoids inhibit inflammatory processes in vitro. Type IV cytosolic 85 kDa phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) is an important modulator of inflammatory responses that is present in macrophages as well as in other cell types. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exercise effects on the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase cascade in skeletal muscle

    Author : Ulrika Widegren; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; skeletal muscle; MAP kinase; contraction; acute exercise; Akt kinase; exercise intensity; signal transduction; fiber-type;

    Abstract : Exercise-induced adaptations in skeletal muscle are regulated by numerous signaling mechanisms. However, little is known about the molecular signaling mechanisms linking muscle contraction or other exercise-associated stimuli to intracellular responses in skeletal muscle. READ MORE

  5. 5. Organelle movement in melanophores: Effects of Panax ginseng, ginsenosides and quercetin

    Author : Therese Eriksson; Rolf Andersson; Samuel Svensson; Ingemar Lundström; Robert Kronstrand; Per Hammarström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : melanophores; Panax ginseng; ginsenosides; quercetin; organell anterograde transport; endothelin-3; mitogen activated protein kinase; protein kinase C; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Panax ginseng is a traditional herb that has been used for over 2000 years to promote health and longevity. Active components of ginseng include ginsenosides, polysaccharides, flavonoids, polyacetylenes, peptides, vitamins, phenols and enzymes, of which the ginsenosides are considered to be the major bioactive constituents.
