  1. 1. Molecular characterization of prostate hyperplasia in prolactin transgenic mice

    Author : Karin Dillner; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Prolactin-transgenic; mouse; prolactin; prostate hyperplasia; gene expression analysis;

    Abstract : Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer are age-related diseases, affecting a majority of elderly men in the western world, and are known to be influenced by several different hormones, including sex hormones. Although the hormone prolactin (PRL) is well known to exert trophic effects on prostate cells, its involvement in the pathophysiology is still poorly characterized. READ MORE

  2. 2. Of mice and men : SOD1 associated human amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and transgenic mouse models

    Author : Karin Sixtensdotter Graffmo; Thomas Brännström; Stefan Marklund; Elisabeth Englund; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; aggregates; ALS; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; inclusions; misfolded; vacuolisation; SOD1; transgenic; Pathology; Patologi;

    Abstract : Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, ALS, is a progressive fatal neurodegenerative disorder affecting motor neurones in motor cortex, brain stem and spinal cord. This inevitably leads to paralysis, respiratory failure and death. READ MORE

    Abstract : Spinal neurons are important in several aspects motor control. For example, the neurons essential for locomotor movements reside in the ventral spinal cord. In this thesis, different motor control functions are being related to neuronal populations defined by their common expression of a gene. READ MORE

  4. 4. Feedback Enhancement of Antibody Responses via Complement and Fc Receptors

    Author : Jörgen Dahlström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Mouse; transgenic knockout; immune regulation; B lymphocytes; Fc receptors; complement; IgG; IgM; IgE; Fc-gamma-RI; Fc-gamma-RII; Fc-gamma-RIII; CR1; CR2; CD21; CD35; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : IgG, IgM and IgE in complex with antigen have the capacity to regulate specific immune responses. In this investigation, the role of Fc receptors for IgG (FcγRI, FcγRII and FcγRIII) and complement receptors 1 and 2 (CR1/2) for antibody-mediated enhancement of antibody responses are investigated.
