  1. 1. Vesicle proteins as markers for neuroendocrine tumors

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Anne-Marie Levin Jakobsen; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuroendocrine tumours; gastrointestinal tract; pancreas; adrenal; vesicle proteins; SV2; NESP55; VMAT1; VMAT2; MIBG;

    Abstract : The neuroendocrine (NE) tumours comprise a diversity of tumours which share commonproperties, e.g. the capacity to produce, store and release hormones. A prominent feature ofthe NE phenotype is the production of secretory granules with associated vescicle proteins,e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies of membrane-binding proteins involved in synaptic vesicle recycling

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Fredrik Andersson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Signaling between neurons occurs at synapses. A presynaptic nerve terminal releases neurotransmitter, which diffuses over the synaptic cleft, and binds to postsynaptic receptors. Release occurs by fusion of neurotransmitter-containing vesicles with the plasma membrane. READ MORE

  3. 3. The role of multifunctional scaffolding proteins in the synaptic vesicle cycle

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Neuroscience

    Author : Wei Jiao; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Fast synaptic transmission occurs at specialized junctions between neurons referred to as chemical synapses. Action potentials induce an influx of calcium ions into presynaptic terminals, which contain neurotransmitter-filled synaptic vesicles (SVs), triggering fusion of the vesicles with the plasma membrane and resulting in the release of neurotransmitters.

  4. 4. Synaptic vesicle endocytosis studied in a living synapse

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Helge Gad; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; synapse; synaptic vesicles; endocytosis; clathrin; calcium; dynamin; endophilin; amphiphysin; synaptojanin; microinjection; electron microscopy;

    Abstract : Neurons in the central nervous system communicate by transmitting electrical signals at special sites of contact called synapses. Synapses contain neurotransmitter-filled synaptic vesicles, which fuse with the presynaptic plasma membrane. The neurotransmitter diffuses to the neighboring neuron and triggers a new electrical signal. READ MORE

  5. 5. Allosteric regulation of synaptic processes

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

    Author : Ranjita Dutta Roy; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Glutamatergic neurotransmission is of key importance for short-term and long-term plasticity in the hippocampus, a part of the medial temporal lobe which is responsible for processes of explicit semantic and spatial memory. Short-term plasticity is mainly regulated by the presynaptic neuron and long-term plasticity is to large parts regulated by the post-synaptic neuron. READ MORE
