  1. 1. Gut peptides in gastrointestinal motility and mucosal permeability

    Author : Md. Abdul Halim; Webb Dominic-Luc; Per M Hellström; Lars Fändriks; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Gut regulatory peptides; Neuropeptides; Gastrointestinal mucosal permeability; Gastrointestinal motility; GLP-1; NPS; ROSE-010;

    Abstract : Gut regulatory peptides, such as neuropeptides and incretins, play important roles in hunger, satiety and gastrointestinal motility, and possibly mucosal permeability. Many peptides secreted by myenteric nerves that regulate motor control are also produced in mucosal epithelial cells. READ MORE

  2. 2. Isolation and characterization of regulatory peptides and bioactive compounds

    Author : Åke Norberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Isolation of peptides and other bioactive compounds is an important and often necessary step to get the total information about their structures. This is demonstrated by a number of different characterizations in this thesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Gastric Bypass in Morbid Obesity : Postoperative Changes in Metabolic, Inflammatory and Gut Regulatory Peptides

    Author : Camilla Holdstock; Britt Edén Engström; Anders Karlsson; Per Hellström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; gastric bypass; morbid obesity; ghrelin; C-reactive protein; pancreatic polypeptide; peptide YY; glucagon-like peptide-1; Medicine; Medicin;

    Abstract : This thesis examines the effect of surgical weight loss on gut and adipose tissue peptides involved in appetite regulation and energy homeostasis in morbidly obese humans. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP) is the gold standard operation used for effective long-term weight loss and improved health. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mechanisms of neutrophil recruitment in septic lung injury

    Author : Karzan Palani; Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; sepsis; infection; neutrophil; lung; chemokines; apoptosis; CD44; F-actin; peptides;

    Abstract : Sepsis is one of leading cause of death despite aggressive surgical intervention and antibiotic therapies. Excessive neutrophil recruitment is a major feature in early phase with immune system dysfunction at later phase. Lung is the most vulnerable, critical and sensitive organ during sepsis process.

  5. 5. Expression and Regulation of Neuropeptide Y (NPY) in the Islets of Langerhans

    Author : Ulrika Myrsén Axcrona; Neuroendokrin cellbiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocrinology; regulatory peptides; diabetes; glucocorticoids; beta cell; islet hormones; neuropeptide Y; insulin; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the expression, localization and regulation of neuropeptide Y (NPY) in the pancreatic islets of Langerhans under normal and experimental conditions. NPY is widely distributed in the mammalian nervous system and belongs to a family of closely related petides also comprising peptide YY (PYY) and pancreatic polypeptide (PP). READ MORE
