  1. 1. The role of progesterone in the regulation of ciliary activity in the fallopian tube

    Author : Magdalena Nutu; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; progesterone; progesterone receptor; non-genomic progesterone receptor; ciliated cells; fallopian tube; gamete transport; ciliary activity; ciliary beat frequency; reproduction; fertility;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate the distribution and regulation of membrane progesterone receptors (mPRs) that may be involved in regulating ciliary activity in the fallopian tube. The fallopian tube serves to transport the egg and spermatozoa to achieve fertilization. READ MORE

  2. 2. Granulosa cell apoptosis: Transcriptional regulation by the nuclear progesterone receptor

    Author : P. Anders Friberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ovary; granulosa cells; ovulation; luteinization; progesterone; apoptosis; cholesterol synthesis; isoprenylation;

    Abstract : Ovarian follicle atresia caused by granulosa cell apoptosis is a central process in normal female physiology. Progesterone has been reported to be a survival factor in granulosa cells at several developmental stages. READ MORE

  3. 3. Progesterone's effect on factors that influence gamete transport in the fallopian tube

    Author : Anna Bylander; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Progesterone; Fallopian tube;

    Abstract : ABSTRACT The fallopian tube plays an important role for successful female reproduction as it transport gametes to the fertilization site, nourish the developing embryo and transport it to the uterus at the suitable time for implantation. The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate the role of progesterone in control of gamete transport. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of neuroactive steroids on the recombinant GABAA receptor in Xenopus oocyte

    University dissertation from Umeå : Medicinsk fakultet

    Author : Mozibur Rahman; Umeå universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; GABA; GABAA receptor; neuroactive steroids; VETERINARY MEDICINE Obstetrics and gynaecology; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Obstetrik och gynekologi;

    Abstract : Introduction: Neuroactive steroids represent a class of both synthetic and naturally occurring steroids that have an effect on neural function. In addition to classical genomic mechanism by the hormones progesterone, deoxycorticosterone and testosterone 3α-OH metabolites of these hormones enhance GABAA receptor through rapid non-genomic mechanism.
