  1. 1. Tissue Microarrays for Analysis of Expression Patterns

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Cecilia Lindskog Bergström; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tissue microarrays; Antibody-based proteomics; Immunohistochemistry; Biomarker discovery; Diabetes; Lung cancer; Influenza virus; Evolution; Pathology; Patologi;

    Abstract : Proteins are essential building blocks in every living cell, and since the complete human genome was sequenced in 2004, researchers have attempted to map the human proteome, which is the functional representation of the genome. One such initiative is the Human Protein Atlas programme (HPA), which generates monospecific antibodies towards all human proteins and uses these for high-throughput tissue profiling on tissue microarrays (TMAs).

    Abstract : The incidence of cutaneous malignant melanoma has increased dramatically in Caucasians the last few decades, an increase that is partly explained by altered sun exposure habits. For the individual patient, with a localized disease, the tumor thickness of the excised lesion is the most important prognostic factor. READ MORE

  4. 4. Antibody-based Profiling of Expression Patterns using Cell and Tissue Microarrays

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sara Strömberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Pathology; antibody-based proteomics; tissue microarray; cell line; immunohistochemistry; melanocytes; image analysis; biomarker; Patologi;

    Abstract : In this thesis, methods to study gene and protein expression in cells and tissues were developed and utilized in combination with protein-specific antibodies, with the overall objective to attain greater understanding of protein function.To analyze protein expression in in vitro cultured cell lines, a cell microarray (CMA) was developed, facilitating antibody-based protein profiling of cell lines using immunohistochemistry (IHC).

    Abstract : Breast cancer is a truly heterogenous disease, reflected in the existence of a wide spectrum of phenotypic subsets of tumours with varying intrinsic aggressiveness as well as ability to respond to a given treatment. Recent advances in large-scale genomic and proteomic screening techniques have confirmed this heterogeneity also at a molecular level, but there is still a bottleneck to be overcome before the discoveries in the laboratory can be translated into the much more complex clinical situation in order to develop better targeted therapies.
