  1. 1. Pathophysiological, Inflammatory and Haemostatic Responses to Various Endotoxaemic Patterns An Experimental Study in the Pig

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Miklós Lipcsey; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Anaesthesiology and intensive care; sepsis; animal model; cytokines; isoprostanes; endotoxic shock; pig; Anestesiologi och intensivvård;

    Abstract : Septic shock is frequently seen in intensive care units and is associated with significant mortality. Endotoxin – a major mediator of the pathophysiologic responses – is released during lysis of Gram-negative bacteria. These responses can be mimicked in the endotoxaemic pig. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neuropeptide Y Receptors in Human, Guinea pig and Chicken Cloning, in vitro Pharmacology and in situ Hybridization

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sara Holmberg; Helen Cox; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; G-protein coupled receptor; neuropeptide Y; neuropeptide Y receptor; ortholog; chicken; guinea pig; mutagenesis; receptor computer modeling; mRNA in situ hybridization; Neurovetenskap; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Neurology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Neurologi; medicinsk farmakologi; Medical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is known to influence a vast number of physiological and behavioral processes such as vasoconstriction, circadian rhythms, feeding, anxiety and memory. Peptides of the NPY family bind to five different cloned G-protein coupled receptor subtypes (Y1, 2, 4-6). READ MORE

  3. 3. On cellular sources for intimal hyperplasia after vascular interventions

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Stefan Mellander; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intimal hyperplasia; vascular intervention; smooth muscle cell; blood-born mononuclear cell; prosthetic graft; balloon injury; pig; rabbit;

    Abstract : Vascular interventions for the treatment of symptomatic atherosclerosis fail in up to 40 % of the cases during the first year. One important reason is the development of a narrowing process known as intimal hyperplasia (IH). The cells forming IH resemble smooth muscle cells (SMCs) from the media of the arterial wall.

  4. 4. Genetic Analysis of Fat Metabolism in Domestic Pigs and their Wild Ancestor

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Frida Berg; Leif Andersson; Maria Moller; Stefan Marklund; Sigbjörn Lien; [2006]
    Keywords : Genetics; Pig; Quantitative Trait Locus; Fat deposition; FAT1; Linkage map; RH map; Comparative map; Backcross; Identical by Descent mapping; Brown adipose tissue; UCP1; Genetik;

    Abstract : The domestication of the pig began about 9 000 years ago and many of the existing domestic breeds have been selected for phenotypic traits like lean meat and fast growth. Domestic pigs are phenotypically very different from the ancestral wild boar that has adapted to survive in their natural environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hepatitis E virus in the virome of water and animals

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Hao Wang; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pig; wild boar; wastewater; tap water; enteric virus; NGS;

    Abstract : This thesis was aimed to investigate viruses in different animals and water to get some understanding of viruses that disseminate into the environment. Next generation sequencing (NGS) was used to explore the virome from raw to treated water at two Swedish drinking water treatment plants (DWTP) and in tap water. READ MORE
