  1. 1. Investigations on tyrosinase and a tyrosinase related protein

    University dissertation from Divison of Clinical Chemistry and Pharmacology

    Author : Anna Wittbjer Lindell; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology; enzymologi; Proteiner; dopachrome tautomerase; tyrosinase; TRP-1; melanin; melanocytes; melanoma cells; enzymology; Proteins; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : Tyrosinase and tyrosinase-related protein-1 are enzymes involved in melanin synthesis and specific to the melanocyte and the melanoma cell. In the studies upon which this thesis is based, these enzymes were investigated in normal melanocytes, cultured human melanoma cells and transfected mouse fibroblasts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Melanization and Hemocyte Homeostasis  in the Freshwater Crayfish, Pacifastacus leniusculus

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : Mammalian melanins are of two major types, eumelanins and peheomelanins, which often occur together, then called mixed-type melanins. A method has been developed for analysing the various forms of melanins. READ MORE

  5. 5. Quantitative analysis of melanoma transcripts : with emphasis on methodological and biological variation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Malin Farnebäck; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2004]

    Abstract : The introduction of RT-PCR made it possible to detect circulating tumor cells in melanoma patients by analysis of melanoma-associated transcripts, especially tyrosinase. Since the development of the first PCR method for tyrosinase mRNA, several studies have presented varying results. READ MORE
