  1. 1. Lymphatic Vascular Morphogenesis : From Progenitors to Functional Vessels

    Author : Nina Daubel; Taija Mäkinen; Markus Affolter; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lymphatic vasculature; morphogenesis; lymphvasculogenesis; mesentery; lymphatic capillary;

    Abstract : The lymphatic vasculature is an important part of the circulatory system and crucial for normal functioning and maintenance of tissues. Yet, our understanding of the processes underlying lymphatic development and homeostasis are surprisingly limited. READ MORE

  2. 2. Rho-GTPases in Morphogenesis and Differentiation of the Developing Pancreas

    Author : Thomas Greiner; Stamcellscentrum (SCC); []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; insulin; diabetes; beta cell; cell adhesion; migration; delamination; morphogenesis; tubulogenesis; pancreas; Cdc42; Rho-GTPase; Rac1;

    Abstract : Branched tubular networks constitute the basic structure of many organs to increase surface area and to transport fluids and gases. Glandular organs such as the pancreas arise from multilayered epithelium, which undergoes de novo lumen formation and extensive remodeling and branching. READ MORE

  3. 3. From Cell Shape to Body Shape: Epithelial Morphogenesis in Drosophila melanogaster

    Author : Shai Mulinari; Sociologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Odd-skipped; morphogenesis; Hedgehog; segment boundaries; segmental grooves; Actin; Drosophila; DRhoGEF2; Myosin; Diaphanous; Rho GTPase; cytoskeleton; Rho1;

    Abstract : Embryonic development is associated with extensive rearrangements of tissues. The driving force for these rearrangements is generated by a dynamic reorganization of the Actin cytoskeleton of individual cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. Basement membrane components and their receptors in organogenesis

    Author : Katriina Salmivirta; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Basement membrane; laminin; collagen type IV; nidogen; integrin; morphogenesis; organogenesis; tooth; salivary gland; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : During embryogenesis organs are formed from epithelial and mesenchymal tissues. Organogenesis is dependent on interactions between epithelium and mesenchyme. Specialized extracellular matrices, basement membranes, located between the two tissue types play a crucial role in mediating the interactions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Imaging the pancreas : new aspects on lobular development and adult constitution

    Author : Andreas Hörnblad; Ulf Ahlgren; Guy Rutter; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 1 diabetes; ß-cell mass; tertiary lymphoid organs; biomedical imaging; optical projection tomography; morphogenesis; pancreas development; gastric lobe; spleen development.; medicinsk genetik; Medical Genetics; medicinsk utvecklings- och neurobiologi; Developmental Neurosciences; molekylär medicin genetik och patologi ; molecular medicine  genetics and pathology ;

    Abstract : The mouse pancreas is a mixed exocrine and endocrine glandconsisting of three lobular compartments: the splenic, duodenal and gastric lobes. During embryogenesis, the pancreas forms from two progenitor populations located on the dorsal and ventral side of the primitive gut tube. READ MORE
