  1. 1. Studies of the Neuropeptide Y Receptor Y2 in Human and Zebrafish

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Helena Fällmar; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Y2-receptor; NPY; PYY; G-protein-coupled receptor; mutagenesis; receptor binding; zebrafish; evolution; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Pharmacological research Pharmacology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Farmakologisk forskning Farmakologi; Farmakologi; Pharmacology;

    Abstract : The G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) comprise the largest family of receptors in humans and other vertebrates. They are embedded in the cell membrane and are activated by many different signaling molecules. Activation modulates cellular signal transduction pathways and influences many physiological processes.

  2. 2. Hitting the mark studies of alterations in behaviour and fertility in ethinyl estradiol-exposed zebrafish and search related biomarkers

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Nasim Reyhanian Caspillo; Örebro universitet.; Södertörns högskola.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology; Biologi; Endocrine disrupting compounds; 17α-ethinylestradiol; fertility; anxiety; behaviour; zebrafish; biomarkers; stress;

    Abstract : In this thesis, we have analysed the effects of EE2 on non-reproductive behaviours and fertility. We have showed that two doses of EE2 in male adult short-term exposures evokes opposite behaviours in the novel tank test. READ MORE

  3. 3. Glycosaminoglycan Biosynthesis in Zebrafish

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Beata Filipek-Górniok; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heparan sulfate; chondroitin dermatan sulfate; biosynthesis; development; N-deacetylase N-sulfotransferase; glycosyltransferases; morpholino; CRISPR-Cas9;

    Abstract : Proteoglycans (PGs) are composed of highly sulfated glycosaminoglycans chains (GAGs) attached to specific core proteins. They are present in extracellular matrices, on the cell surface and in storage granules of hematopoietic cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. The role of Six1 in muscle progenitor cells and the establishment of fast-twitch muscle fibres

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Hanna Nord; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Myogenesis; zebrafish; muscle fibre; patterning; fmyhc; myl1; Six1; Pax7;

    Abstract : Myogenesis is the process of skeletal muscle tissue formation where committed muscle progenitor cells differentiate into skeletal muscle fibres. Depending on the instructive cues the muscle progenitor cells receive they will differentiate into specific fibre types with different properties. READ MORE

  5. 5. Persistency, bioaccumulation and toxicity assessment of selected brominated flame retardants

    University dissertation from Umeå : Print & Media

    Author : Jenny Rattfelt Nyholm; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; persistence; bioaccumulation; toxicity; biodegradation; biotransformation; PBT; read across; soil; earthworm; zebrafish; copepod; BFRs; polybrominated diphenyl ethers; tetrabromobisphenol A; hexabromocyclododecane; hexabromobenzene; 2; 4; 6-tribromophenol; tetrabromobisphenol A; 2-hydroxyethyl ether; 1; 2-dibromo-4- 1; 2-dibromoethyl cyclohexane; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi;

    Abstract : Brominated flame retardants (BFRs) are chemicals used in e.g. electronic equipment, textiles and plastics for the prevention of fire. Over recent decades, concern has been raised regarding some heavily used BFRs, since the levels in the environment have been increasing. READ MORE
