  1. 1. Aspects of MEN1 Tumorigenesis in Endocrine Pancreas and Adrenal Glands

    Author : Xia Chu; Kjell Öberg; Barbro Eriksson; Magnus Kjellman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEN1; tumorigenesis; PNET; angiogenesis; adrenal glands; proteomic analysis; miRNA expression; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Abstract : Multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominantly inherited disease, which is described as an association of tumors mainly in endocrine organs, including pancreas and adrenal glands. Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) are the most common cause of death in MEN1 patients. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effect of Hyaluronan-activation of CD44 on Cell Signaling and Tumorigenesis

    Author : Lingli Li; Paraskevi Heldin; Raija H. Tammi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Biomedicine; Hyaluronan; CD44; growth factors; chemokines; tumorigenesis; wound healing; cell signaling; Biomedicin;

    Abstract : Hyaluronan (HA), a structural component in the extracellular matrix (ECM), has been recognized as a signaling molecule. It is important during various biological activities such as embryogenesis, angiogenesis, wound healing and tumor progression. READ MORE

    Abstract : Heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs) consist of a protein core to which several linear, negatively charged heparan sulfate (HS) chains are covalently attached. HSPGs are expressed on the cell surface and in the extra-cellular matrix (ECM) where they have diverse biological functions, for example co-receptor functions. READ MORE

    Abstract : Endocrine tumors arise from endocrine glands. Most endocrine tumors are benign but malignant variants exist. Several endocrine neoplasms display loss of parts of chromosome 11 or 18, produce hormones and responds poorly to conventional chemotherapeutics. The multiple endocrine neoplasia syndromes are mainly confined to endocrine tumors. READ MORE
