    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomedicinska vetenskaper allmänt ; General biomedical sciences; crystal structure; network formation; collagen IX; N-glycans; PRELP; cross-linking; fibulin-2; lectin; G3; ECM; proteoglycan;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the C-terminal G3 region of the large aggregating proteoglycans that are found in complex with hyaluronan in the extracellular matrix. The G3 region contains a C-type lectin domain that binds different extracellular matrix proteins playing an integral role in tissue organization during development and remodeling. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Människans immunförsvar ska hjälpa oss att bekämpa infektioner från bakterier och virus. Immunförsvaret kan delas in i två delar; det adaptiva immunförsvaret, som utvecklas hela tiden under livets gång, samt det medfödda immunförsvaret. READ MORE

  5. 5. Complement in Disease - Extracellular Proteins as Complement Regulators

    University dissertation from Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Kaisa Happonen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rheumatoid arthritis; joint disease; Complement; proteoglycan; cancer;

    Abstract : Complement activation occurs during inflammatory joint diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and is thought to contribute to the chronic inflammation observed within the joints. Previous studies have shown that certain cartilage components of the small leucine-rich repeat protein (SLRP)-family regulate complement activity, thereby possibly contributing to disease progression.
