  1. 1. Transposable Elements in Neural Progenitor Cells

    University dissertation from Molecular Neurogenetics, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Liana Fasching; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Transposable Elements; TRIM28; Epigenetic Regulation; Gene Expression; Neural Progenitor Cells;

    Abstract : More than 90% of DNA does not code for proteins and for a long time these sequences were referred to as “junk DNA” due to their unknown purpose. With the advent of new technologies it is now known, that the non-coding part of the genome is of great importance for regulating gene expression and is therefore indispensable. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neural Stem and Progenitor Cells Cellular Responses to Known and Novel Factors

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jimmy Larsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neural stem cell; differentiation; proliferation; migration; PDGF; SCF; NRBP2; medulloblastoma; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; Medicinsk biokemi; Medical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Neural stem cell self-renewal and differentiation are tightly regulated events during CNS development, leading to cell division into new neural stem cells or the formation of neurons and glial cells. This thesis focuses on the cellular responses induced by known and novel factors in neural stem and progenitor cells (NSPCs). READ MORE

  3. 3. Neural Stem and Progenitor Cells as a Tool for Tissue Regeneration

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ulrika Wallenquist; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatic brain injury; neural stem cells; transplantation; CNS; PNS; progenitor cells; inflammation; CCI; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi; Neurosurgery; neurokirurgi; Medical Biochemistry; medicinsk biokemi;

    Abstract : Neural stem and progenitor cells (NSPC) can differentiate to neurons and glial cells. NSPC are easily propagated in vitro and are therefore an attractive tool for tissue regeneration. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a common cause for death and disabilities. A fundamental problem following TBI is tissue loss. READ MORE

  4. 4. Features of adult neural progenitor cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Lisa Arvidsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adult neural progenitor cell;

    Abstract : The adult Central Nervous System (CNS) harbors neural progenitor cells (NPCs) in three areas: the subventricular zone (SVZ) of the lateral ventricles and the subgranular zone in the hippocampus and around the central canal in the spinal cord. The NPCs can be isolated and cultured in vitro. READ MORE

  5. 5. NEURAL STEM/PROGENITOR CELLS IN THE POST-ISCHEMIC ENVIRONMENT: Proliferation, Differentiation and Neuroprotection

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Jonas Faijerson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neural stem cells; neural progenitor cells; stroke; ischemia; reactive astrocytes; astrogliosis; proliferation; differentiation; neurogenesis; excitotoxicity; transfection; neuroprotection;

    Abstract : Stroke is one of the leading causes of chronic disability and death in the Western world. Today, no treatment can repair the cellular loss associated with an ischemic lesion. READ MORE
