    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Andreas C. Tomac; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor GDNF ; neurturin NTN ; persephin PSP ; c Ret proto oncogene Ret ; GPI-linked receptors for the GDNF ligand family GFRas ; transforming growth factor-B TGFB ; Parkinson s disease PD ; dopaminergic DA neurons;

    Abstract : Background: The mammalian nervous system depends upon trophic proteins for survival, growth and adult maintenance. These trophic factors have also been considered as potential therapeutic agents for treating human neurodegenerative disorders. READ MORE

  3. 3. Expression and function of GDNF family ligands and receptors in the nervous system

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Author : Åsa Mikaels; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The search for novel neurotrophic factors promoting dopamine uptake and the survival of central dopaminergic neurons led to the discovery of a novel neurotrophic factor termed glial cell-line derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF). GDNF, neurturin (NTN), artemin (ART) and persephin (PSP) belong to the GDNF family ligands, and are potent survival-promoting factors for subsets of central and peripheral neurons. READ MORE

  4. 4. GDNF family ligands and neural stem cells in Parkinson's disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics

    Author : Peter Åkerud; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Parkinson's disease (PD) is a very common neurodegenerative disorder, characterized by a progressive degeneration of mainly nigrostriatal and mesolimbic dopaminergic neurons leading to tremor, rigidity and hypokinesia, the classical symptoms of the disease. Degeneration of noradrenergic neurons of the locus coeruleus are also involved in the progression of the disease, causing dementia and depression. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structure-function studies of GDNF and other members of the TGF-beta superfamily

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Susanna Eketjäll; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) family is a distant subclass of the TGF-beta superfamily. The GDNF family of ligands, consisting of GDNF, neurturin (NTN), artemin (ART) and persephin (PSP), are potent survival and differentiation factors for neurons in the central and peripheral nervous systems.
