  1. 1. Fibroblast Contractility in vivo and in vitro Effects of Prostaglandins and Potential Role for Inner Ear Fluid Homeostasis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna-Karin Hultgård Ekwall; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; Interstitial connective tissue; fibroblasts; prostaglandins; podoplanin; endolymph resorption; Ménière’s disease.; Biokemi; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi;

    Abstract : Fibroblasts continuously strive to organize and compact the surrounding extracellular matrix (ECM). Recent data suggest that this cellular contractility controls interstitial fluid homeostasis in loose connective tissues (CT). READ MORE

  3. 3. Gastric gland luminal pressure and mucosal protection : An in vivo study in the anesthetized rat

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ingrid Synnerstad; Uppsala universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology and anatomy; acid secretion; bicarbonate; epithelial cell surface pH; gastric gland; muscularis mucosa; micropuncture; mucosal blood flow; mucus gel thickness; omeprazole; permeability; prostaglandins; ranitidine; rat; Fysiologi och anatomi; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Abstract : The driving force for creation of channels in gastric mucus, for acid and pepsin transport, ismost probably the hydrostatic pressure generated within the gastric gland lumen. The aim ofthis study was to investigate the origin and regulation of the glandular pressure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Kidney Hyaluronan Regulatory Aspects During Different States of Body Hydration, Nephrogenesis & Diabetes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Louise Rügheimer; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Physiology; hyaluronan; kidney; dehydration; hydration; diabetes; nephrogenesis; renomedullary interstitial cells; CD44; hyaluronan synthase; hyaluronidase; vasopressin; nitric oxide; prostaglandins; glucocorticoids; angiotensin II; diuresis; lymph vessel; podoplanin; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : The kidney regulates the excretion of water and electrolytes, which maintains homeostasis and enables control of arterial blood pressure. Hyaluronan, a large negatively charged interstitial glucosaminoglycan, is heterogeneously distributed within the kidney, primarily found in the medulla. READ MORE

  5. 5. Metabolism of articular cartilage proteoglycans in vitro effects of synovial membrane products and mechanical pressure

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Agneta Klämfeldt; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [1982]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Articular cartilage; Proteoglycan metabolism; Synovial membrane products; Mechanical stress; Indom ethacin; Glucocorticoids; Prostaglandins; Osteoarthritis; Rheumatoid arthritis;

    Abstract : The effect of synovial membrane products and mechanical pressure upon the metabolism of articular cartilage proteoglycans has been studied in vitro. The degradation of cartilage proteoglycans was studied in an organ culture system and measured as the release of [35S ] sulphate from prelabelled cartilage. READ MORE
