  1. 1. Thermal physiology and metabolism : Interplay between heat generation and energy homeostasis

    Författare :Gustavo Abreu-Vieira; Jan Nedergaard; Eric Ravussin; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Mammal metabolism is intimately connected to the maintenance of body temperature. While metabolic pathways invariably produce heat as a by-product, the natural heat present in the environment also plays a role in defining the adaptive metabolism and general physiology of an organism.

  2. 2. Blood flow and metabolism in the corpus luteum of the rat : in vivo and in vitro studies on the ovarian luteal and follicular compartment of the rat

    Författare :Mats Gåfvels; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ovary; follicle; corpus luteum; blood flow; metabolism; luteinizing hormone; noradrenaline; antidiuretic hormone;

    Sammanfattning : The ovary undergoes cyclic changes in follicular growth and luteogenesis due to the action of gonadotropins and steroids. The ovary and especially the corpus luteum has an exteremely high blood flow. There is a gap in our knowledge about the physiological role of the high blood flow of the corpus luteum. LÄS MER

  3. 3. β-Adrenergic Signalling Through mTOR

    Författare :Jessica M. Olsen; Tore Bengtsson; Martin Klingenspor; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glucose uptake; Brown adipose tissue; White adipose tissue; Skeletal muscle; Mechanistic target of rapamycin; Glucose transporter; Physiology; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Adrenergic signalling is part of the sympathetic nervous system and is activated upon stimulation by the catecholamines epinephrine and norepinephrine. This regulates heart rate, energy mobilization, digestion and helps to divert blood flow to important organs. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Metabolic Significance of Systemic DHA Deficiency

    Författare :Anna Maria Pauter; Anders Jacobsson; Bernadette Delplanque; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Fatty acid composition in the body displays a high level of heterogeneity and can rapidly respond to changes in diet regime or to starvation. Homeostasis of the level of certain fatty acids is an important factor for maintenance of structural integrity as well as for proper signaling within the organism. LÄS MER

  5. 5. β-adrenergic signalling and novel effects in skeletal muscle

    Författare :Anette I. Öberg; Tore Bengtsson; Jon Arch; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Sammanfattning : Skeletal muscles have, due to their large mass, a big impact on the whole body metabolism. There are many signals that can regulate the functions of skeletal muscles and one such signal is activation of α- and β-adrenoceptors (α- and β-ARs) by epinephrine and norepinephrine. LÄS MER
