  1. 1. The Regulation of Growth and Survival in Human Multiple Myeloma Cells by IGF-I Receptor Signaling

    Författare :Thomas Strömberg; Helena Jernberg Wiklund; Kenneth Nilsson; Anders Waage; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pathology; Multiple myeloma; IGF-IR; apoptosis; somatostatin; octreotide; dexamethasone; GSK-3; mTOR; rapamycin; RTK inhibitor; Patologi; Pathology; Patologi;

    Sammanfattning : Multiple myeloma (MM) is an incurable B-cell malignancy mainly localized to the bone marrow. Our aim was to examine the growth- and survival-promoting role of the IGF-IR and its downstream signaling components in MM cells to identify potential targets for therapy. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Protein phosphatases and kinases implicated in alzheimer's disease abnormal tau phosporylation

    Författare :Jin-jing Pei; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis describes the distribution, levels and activities of a number of protein kinases and protein phosphatases (PPs) implicated in the abnormal phosphorylation of the tau protein that forms the paired helical filaments (PHFs) of Alzheimer's disease (AD) neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs). Paper I describes the immunocytochernical localization of PP-1, PP-2A, PP-2B and PTP-1B, as well as the protein kinase MAP kinase and p34cdc2 in the hippocampal formation of AD and control brains.

  3. 3. Apolipoprotein E and Alzheimer's diseases : Signals and effects

    Författare :Ángel Cedazo-Minguez; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the most frequent cause of dementia in the elderly. A diagnosis of AD is confirmed post-mortem by the accumulation of neuritic plaques (NP) and neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) in brain tissue. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Mechanisms of Sensitization to Apoptosis in Multiple Myeloma

    Författare :Anna Hammarberg; Helena Jernberg Wiklund; Kenneth Nilsson; Federico Caligaris-Cappio; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Pathology; multiple myeloma; apoptosis; IGF-1; mTOR; IAP; GSK3; rapamycin; PPP; dexamethasone; CT99021; Patologi;

    Sammanfattning : Multiple myeloma (MM) is a hematological tumor of plasma blast/plasma cell origin heterogeneous with respect to the morphological differentiation stage of the tumor cells, genetic alterations and course of disease. A challenge in MM research is to overcome resistance to therapy, which inevitably arises. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Alzheimer's disease mutations and cellular signalling

    Författare :Monika Vestling; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Alzheimer's disease is the most frequent cause of dementia in elderly and is characterised neuropathologically by the extracellular deposition of amyloid plaques (containing the 39-43 amino acid Abeta peptide), as well as intracellular neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) composed primarily of an abnormally hyperphosphorylated form of the microtubule-associated protein tau. A proportion (10- 15%) of Alzheimer's disease cases is familial, the remainder being sporadic. LÄS MER
