  1. 1. Salt-inducible kinases in adipose tissue

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Johanna Sernevi Säll; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; salt-inducible kinase; SIK; SIK2; fettväv; fettceller; insulinsignalering; glukosupptag; fetma; insulinresistens; salt-inducible kinase; SIK; SIK2; adipose tissue; adipocytes; insulin signalling; glucose uptake; obesity; insulin resistance;

    Abstract : Fetma och typ 2 diabetes är stora folksjukdomar som ökar i rasande takt världen över. En gemensam nämnare för dessa sjukdomar är att de vävnader i kroppen som reglerar ämnesomsättningen, t.ex. fettvävnaden, förlorar känsligheten för hormonet insulin så att det inte längre fungerar normalt.

  2. 2. Salt-inducible kinase 1 : A novel regulator within a cell sodium-sensing network

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Author : Karin Stenström; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Na ; K -ATPase; -adducin; Milan hypertensive and normotensive strain of rats; hypertension; angiotensin II; cardiac hypertrophy; myocyte enhancer factor-2 and nuclear factor of activated T-cells;

    Abstract : Na+, K+-ATPase (NK) is expressed in all animal cells and plays a crucial role in cellular ion homeostasis. The NK activity is tightly regulated by specific signaling networks that must be well controlled in time and space (at the plasma membrane or in the intracellular compartments) to guarantee the specificity of the physiological response.

  3. 3. Relevance of the salt-inducible kinase network for the development of high blood pressure and cardiac hypertrophy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Sergej Popov; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a multifactorial condition that remains a big worldwide problem. 95% of all hypertensive people suffer from essential hypertension with unknown causes. This can cause different heart diseases such as cardiac hypertrophy (CH), a condition which can ultimately lead to heart failure. READ MORE

  4. 4. LKB1 signaling pathways in adipocytes - Focus on the AMPK-related kinase SIK2

    University dissertation from Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund Univeristy

    Author : Emma Henriksson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adipocytes; signal transduction; protein phosphorylation; LKB1; SIK2; SIK3; cAMP;

    Abstract : Adipose tissue does not only store and release energy in response to hormones, it is also known as an endocrine organ, secreting important factors and hormones that influence for example appetite and insulin sensitivity. The association of type 2 diabetes with obesity has been known for quite some time. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cross-regulation between TGFβ/BMP Signalling and the metabolic LKB1 pathway

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Erna Raja; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cell signalling; TGFbeta; BMP; LKB1; AMPK; Molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology;

    Abstract : Cell signalling determines physiological responses to many cellular stimuli and environmental changes. The transforming growth factor-beta (TGFβ)/bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signalling pathways begin by binding of ligand to the heterodimeric receptor complex, followed by activation of Smads that translocate to the nucleus to regulate transcription of genes that further mediate cellular physiology.
