  1. 1. Adenosine receptor signaling and the activation of mitogen-activated protein kinases

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

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

    Abstract : The nucleoside adenosine is present in all cells and body fluids of all living organisms; its production, both intracellularly and extracellularly, is tightly coupled to energy consumption resulting in increasing extracellular adenosine levels with increased energy consumption. Adenosine is metabolized by adenosine deaminase and adenosine kinase. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exercise effects on the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase cascade in skeletal muscle

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Author : Ulrika Widegren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; skeletal muscle; MAP kinase; contraction; acute exercise; Akt kinase; exercise intensity; signal transduction; fiber-type;

    Abstract : Exercise-induced adaptations in skeletal muscle are regulated by numerous signaling mechanisms. However, little is known about the molecular signaling mechanisms linking muscle contraction or other exercise-associated stimuli to intracellular responses in skeletal muscle. READ MORE

  4. 4. Changes in mitogen-activated protein kinase phosphorylation and inorganic phosphate induced by skeletal muscle contraction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Author : Charlott Wretman; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Skeletal muscle; MAP kinase; signal transduction; contraction; acute exercise; exercise intensity; fibre-type; concentric; ROS; eccentric.;

    Abstract : Skeletal muscles adjust to the level of contractile activity by different biochemical alterations. Contraction is a multifactorial stimulus with short-term metabolic effects and long-term responses due to changes in protein synthesis. READ MORE
