Sammanfattning : Gastrointestinal infections in humans have been associated with a number of diseased condition, including stomach ulcers, gastroenteritis, Crohn's disease, and rheumatic arthritis. Such infections often cause altered intestinal permeability through perturbation of the tight junctions that hold epithelial cells together. LÄS MER
2. The intestinal epithelium of salmonids : transepithelial transport, barrier function and bacterial interactions
Sammanfattning : The salmonid intestinal epithelium is important for growth and health of the fish. The epithelium is exposed to a multitude of internal and external factors that can influence its function. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The study aimed at investigating the intestinal barrier in Crohn's disease, with special reference to epithelial responses to luminal stimuli, and to permeation of proteins.Ileal mucosa from patients undergoing intestinal resection was studied in vitro in Ussing chambers. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The intestinal epithelium has the dual function of absorbing nutrients and water as well as being a barrier to potentially harmful substances such as macromolecules and bacteria. In the present thesis the barrier function of the intestinal mucosa was studied in vitro in Ussing diffusion chambers. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Networks of epithelial tubes, such as the vertebrate lung, kidney and vascular system, enable transport of gases and nutrients to all tissues in the body. These tubes are built up by a single layer of polarized epithelial cells, with the apical membrane facing the lumen. LÄS MER
