  1. 1. Satellite cells in human skeletal muscle : molecular identification quantification and function

    Author : Mona Lindström; Lars-Eric Thornell; Hannu Kalimo; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; satellite cell markers; NCAM; Pax7; MyoD; myogenin; DLK1 FA1; c-Met; human skeletal muscle; immunohistochemistry; muscle growth; muscle hypertrophy; Morphology; cell biology; pathology; Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Skeletal muscle satellite cells located between the plasma membrane and the basal lamina of muscle fibres, could for many years, only be studied in situ by electron microscopy. The introduction of immunohistochemistry and the discovery of molecular markers of satellite cells then made them accessible for light microscopic studies and a wealth of information is today available.

  2. 2. Integration of signalling in smooth muscle caveolae

    Author : Yulia Shakirova; Cellulär biomekanik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Caveola; caveolin; detrusor; cavin; smooth muscle contractility; remodelling; NO; vascular dysfunction; smooth muscle; erectile dysfunction;

    Abstract : Caveolae and lipid rafts are plasma membrane microdomains that are considered to play a role in cellular signalling. Caveolins and cavins as well as cholesterol are required for the structure and function of caveolae. The papers summarized in this thesis examine the role of caveolae in smooth muscle function.

  3. 3. Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy to Study Plasma Membrane Protein Dynamics

    Author : Joachim Piguet; Horst Vogel; Ruud Hovius; Jerker Widengren; Antoine Triller; Switzerland Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL); []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; fluorescence; microscopy; plasma membrane; membrane proteins; membrane proteins diffusion; single-molecule imaging; single-molecule tracking; pentameric ligand-gated ion channels; nicotinic acetylcholine receptor; serotonin receptor; synapse; neuromuscular junction; post-synaptic scaffold; rapsyn; myopathies; fluorescent proteins; Förster resonance energy transfer; FRET imaging; protein-protein interactions; protein trafficking; photo-activatable proteins; Biologisk fysik; Biological Physics;

    Abstract : Membrane protein dynamics is of great importance for living organisms. The precise localization of proteins composing a synapse on the membrane facing a nerve terminus is essential for proper functioning of the nervous system. In muscle fibers, the nicotinic acetylcholine is densely packed under the motor nerve termini. READ MORE

  4. 4. Array-based identification of disease-associated proteins

    Author : Maria Mikus; Peter Nilsson; Jochen M. Schwenk; Ina Schuppe-Koistinen; Dolores Cahill; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Affinity proteomics; Antibody array; Antigen array; Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; Asthma; Atopic dermatitis; Biomarker discovery; Drug-induced liver injury; Microarray; Plasma; Protein microarray; Protein profiling; Serum; Suspension bead array; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : To increase our understanding of the human body in both health and disease, proteins can be studied in samples such as plasma and serum to provide a molecular profile of the physiological status. In the work presented in this thesis, array-based methods were used to study associations of protein and autoantibody profiles with disease. READ MORE

  5. 5. Insulin resistance in skeletal muscle. With special reference to interstitial insulin and glycerol

    Author : Mikaela Sjöstrand; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : insulin resistance; skeletal muscle; microdialysis; interstitial insulin; interstitial glycerol;

    Abstract : Insulin resistance is a central feature of type 2 diabetes and obesity and is associated with cardiovascular disease. In insulin-resistant muscle, the insulin-mediated glucose uptake is decreased.The delivery of insulin to the interstitial fluid of human skeletal muscle has previously not been investigated. READ MORE
