  1. 1. Cisplatin-resistance and cell death in malignant pleural mesothelioma cells

    Författare :Veronica Janson; Kjell Grankvist; Roger Henriksson; Parviz Behnam-Motlagh; Anders Johansson; Boris Zhivotovsky; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an aggressive, treatment-resistant tumour. Cisplatin (cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (II)) is the best single-agent chemotherapy for MPM, but platinum-based combination therapies give the best overall response rates. However, cisplatin use is limited by resistance and severe side effects. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Targeting Gb3 and apoptosis-related proteins to overcome cisplatin resistance

    Sammanfattning : Background Cisplatin is used for treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) but treatment with cisplatin often leads to acquired resistance to cisplatin, resulting in poor patient survival. Globotriaosylceramide (Gb3) and multidrug resistance protein 1 (MDR1) have been associated with cisplatin resistance. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The role of the mitochondrial membrane system in apoptosis : the influence of oxidative stress on membranes and their interactions with apoptosis-regulating Bcl-2 proteins

    Författare :Martin Lidman; Gerhard Gröbner; Magnus Wolf-Watz; Philip Williamson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Bax; Bc-2; apoptosis; mitochondria; membranes; oxidized lipids; NMR; calorimetry; circular dichroism; biokemi; Biochemistry; fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Apoptosis is a crucial process in multicellular organisms in sculpting them, especially during embryogenesis. In addition, apoptosis is responsible for the clearance of harmful or damaged cells which can otherwise be detrimental to the organism. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Regulation of mast cell survival and apoptosis

    Författare :Mats Karlberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Mature mast cells reside in the tissue as heavily granulated cells possessing a regulatory function in innate and adaptive immunity against pathogens, but also detrimentally in atopic, as well as, chronic inflammation-associated diseases such as allergic reactions and autoimmunity. Upon stimulation, mast cells release a vast variety of mediators that recruit and stimulate other immune cells, induce vasodilation and angiogenesis, and process and degrade proteins. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The impact of Bcl-2 family members on mast cell survival and apoptosis

    Författare :Maria Ekoff; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Mast cells are long-lived effector cells of the immune system perhaps best known for their involvement in allergic diseases. There are several acute and chronic inflammations where mast cell accumulation, activation and release of mediators are important for the initiation and perpetuation of the inflammation. LÄS MER
