  1. 1. Extracellular Glutathione Peroxidase - Purification, Immunoassay, Nutritional Regulation and Clinical Aspects

    University dissertation from Department of Applied Nutrition and Food Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Wenhu Huang; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Antioxidant enzymes; Ascorbic acid; Parenteral nutrition; Selenium intake; Radioimmunoassay; Selenoproteins; Glutathione peroxidase; Cataract; Proteins; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi;

    Abstract : Extracellular glutathione peroxidase (eGSHPx) is a selenoprotein catalysing the reduction of hydrogen peroxide, organic peroxides and lipid peroxides in the presence of glutathione. A scaled-up purification procedure for obtaining eGSHPx from human plasma was established based on ammonium sulphate fractionation, hydrophobic interaction chromatography, ion-exchange chromatography and gel chromatography.

  2. 2. Human Beta-microseminoprotein expression, with special reference to gastric mucosa, atrophic corpus gastritis and gastric carcinoids

    University dissertation from Department of Surgery, Malmö University Hospital, Lund University

    Author : Håkan Weiber; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; gastric carcinoids; atrophic corpus gastritis; stomach; in situ hybridization; immunohistochemistry; radioimmunoassay; chromogranin A; gastrin; Beta-microseminoprotein; mucin; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; Gastro-enterology; Gastroenterologi;

    Abstract : Human Beta-microseminoprotein is a 94 amino acid protein with 10 cysteins present in seminal plasma and on many mucosal surfaces in the body. The function of the protein is unknown. The purpose of this investigation was to study the distribution of Beta-microseminoprotein in the human body, especially in the stomach. READ MORE

  3. 3. Acute pancreatitis. With special reference to the activation peptide from carboxypeptidase B (CAPAP) as a predictor of severity

    University dissertation from Department of Surgery, Malmö University Hospital, Lund University

    Author : Stefan Appelros; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; accuracy; exocrine dysfunction; radioimmunoassay; CAPAP; carboxypeptidase B; activation peptide; aetiology; prediction of severity; morbidity; mortality; severe acute pancreatitis; Incidence; acute pancreatitis; sensitivity; specificity; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : There is a wide range in the reported annual incidence of acute pancreatitis (AP). A minority of these patients develop a severe disease characterised by a high mortality and morbidity. In order to improve the outcome for patients with an attack of severe AP it is important to identify these patients early in the course of disease. READ MORE

  4. 4. Selenoprotein P. Nutritional and clinical aspects

    University dissertation from Main Library of Science, Technology and Medicine. Lund University

    Author : Marie Persson Moschos; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Food and drink technology; oxidant defense; LDL-apheresis; European survey; selenium supplementation; cancer risk; selenium status; radioimmunoassay; selenoprotein P; human plasma; Livsmedelsteknik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the nutritional regulation and clinical significance of selenoprotein P (SeP) in human plasma of healthy and diseased subjects was investigated. For the analysis of SeP, a radioimmunoassay was developed using polyclonal antibodies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Studies on the level of substance P and calcitonin gene-related peptide in cerebrospinal fluid of pregnant women and patients with chronic pain and in rat brain after spinal cord injury : Special reference to analytical aspects of neuropeptides

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Zhurong Liu; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biosciences; Substance P; Calcitonin gene-related peptide; Radioimmunoassay; High performance liquid chromatography; Cerebrospinal fluid and chronic pain; Farmaceutisk biovetenskap; PHARMACY Biopharmacy; FARMACI Biofarmaci; Pharmacognosy; farmakognosi;

    Abstract : Substance P (SP) and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) are sensory peptides known to be involved innociception and inflammatory processes. It is well demonstrated that the two peptides can be released from spinal cord neurons during inflammation and chronic pain induced by peripheral nerve injury. READ MORE
