  1. 11. Coordination of endocytosis at the synaptic periactive zone

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Emma Evergren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Synapse; endocytosis; clathrin; dynamin; amphiphysin; synapsin; intersectin; actin cytoskeleton; immunogold electron microscopy.;

    Abstract : Abstract: Neurons in the central nervous system communicate via specialized junctions called synapses. Neurotransmitter-filled vesicles are clustered at these junctions, where they are released in response to synaptic activity. To sustain reliable neurotransmission the synaptic vesicles are recycled locally. READ MORE

  2. 12. Membrane-mimetic systems Novel methods and results from studies of respiratory enzymes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Gustav Nordlund; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lipids; membrane proteins; method development; respiration; reconstitution; supported membranes; SNAREs; liposome fusion; lipid-protein interactions; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The processes localized to biological membranes are of great interest, both from a scientific and pharmaceutical point of view. Understanding aspects such as the detailed mechanism and regulation of these processes requires investigation of the structure and function of the membrane-bound proteins in which they take place.

  3. 13. Morphologican and functional studies on the Drosophila neuromuscular system during postembryonic stages

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Zoologiska institutionen

    Author : Ana Beramendi; Stockholms universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Drosophila; neuromuscular system; Rel-proteins; fly brain; rhythmic morphology; aging; ; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Neurobiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Neurobiologi;

    Abstract : The nervous system of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster has emerged as an excellent model for fundamental neuroscience as well as for biomedical research of human neurological diseases. In this thesis, two aspects of the neuromuscular system have been investigated: the role of the IkB-protein Cactus in the larval neuromuscular junction and the morphology of motor terminals throughout adult life.

  4. 14. Molecular mechanisms controlling dynamin recruitment to sites of endocytosis by SH3-domain containing proteins

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Anna Sundborger; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Endocytosis is a general cellular mechanism, which regulates a number of important events, including recycling of synaptic vesicles. Clathrin-mediated endocytosis is the best-characterized endocytic pathway in the cell. This internalization process involves the coat protein clathrin, the adaptor protein AP2 and a number of accessory proteins. READ MORE

  5. 15. SNAP-25 and Cdk5 as exocytotic regulators : Consequences for synaptic function and insulin release

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Jenny Johansson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The process by which cells release substances through fusion of vesicles with the plasma membrane is called exocytosis. Regulated exocytosis needs to be tightly controlled in order to respond to the large variation in stimuli and demands for release of neurotransmitters, peptides and hormones. READ MORE
