  1. 1. Molecular regulators in cartilage and bone formation

    Author : Thomas Engstrand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; cartilage; bone; TGF-beta; BMP; noggin; gene therapy; gene targeting; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Cartilage functions as a scaffold for bone formation during development. This process, endochondral ossification, is regulated by systemic hormones and local growth factors. READ MORE

    Abstract : The extracellular matrix is (ECM) is a network of large, structural proteins and polysaccharides, important for cellular behavior, tissue development and maintenance. Present thesis describes work exploring ECM as scaffolds for tissue engineering by manipulating cells cultured in vitro or by influencing ECM expression in vivo. READ MORE

  3. 3. Making neurons from stem cells: Molecular mechanisms and spider silk substrates

    Author : Michalina Lewicka; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The understanding of the function of the nervous system and the brain is one of the major intellectual challenges in life sciences. Neurological and psychiatric disorders are in addition major issues for the society, and new approaches are needed to learn more about the brain and to develop new treatments. READ MORE

  4. 4. From stem cells to neurons : a BMPy ride

    Author : Therese Andersson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Pinpointing the mechanisms behind the formation of the vertebrate development has been an intriguing and challenging task for researchers for several decades. In the 1980s two independent groups managed to isolate cells from the inner cell mass of a mouse blastocyst and to culture and expand them in vitro, while maintaining their pluripotency. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of postnatal neurogenesis and brain angiogenesis by thyroid hormone

    Author : Jenny Liqun Zhang; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : thyroid hormone; neurogenesis; angiogenesis; SVZ OB; hippocampus; neural stem cells; endothelial cells; astrocytes;

    Abstract : Thyroid hormone (TH), which is secreted by the thyroid gland, exerts significant effects on the central nervous system (CNS), especially during development, so that delayed treatment of perinatal hypothyroidism results in severe cognitive retardation. Continuous postnatal neurogenesis occurs throughout adulthood in the subventricular zone (SVZ) of the lateral ventricle wall and in the subgranular zone (SGZ) of the dentate gyrus (DG) of the hippocampal formation.
