  1. 1. Glucocorticoid receptors in severe inflammation : Experimental and clinical studies

    Författare :Maria Bergquist; Göran Hedenstierna; Christian Rylander; Catharina Lindholm; Cecile Martijn; Djillali Annane; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; glucocorticoid receptor; sepsis; inflammation; flow cytometry; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology;

    Sammanfattning : Septic shock is one of the most common causes of mortality in intensive care, in spite of antibiotic treatment. Glucocorticoid treatment can be used to blunt an overwhelming immune response in severe inflammation. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Studies of glucocorticoid receptor interacting proteins

    Författare :Christina Widén; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : The glucocorticoid receptor (GR) functions as a ligand dependent transcription factor. Nonliganded GR resides mainly in the cytoplasm bound to a complex containing heat shock proteins (hsp). LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death among women in Sweden. The risk of CVD increases rapidly after the menopause. A major contributing factor may be the redistribution of adipose tissue, from the peripheral to central depots, associated with menopause. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Interaction of Xenobiotics with the Glucocorticoid Hormone System in vitro

    Författare :Maria Johansson; Helen Håkansson; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Persistent environmental pollutants were examined for their interaction with the glucocorticoid hormone system. The focus was placed on interference with the glucocorticoid synthesis and the glucocorticoid-signalling pathway in various in vitro test systems. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Glucocorticoid receptor function; interactions, mutants and ligand responses

    Författare :Erik Hedman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Glucocorticoid receptor; glucocorticoids; cross-talk; GR interacting proteins; Flt3; mass spectrometry; 2D gel electrophoresis;

    Sammanfattning : The protein that is investigated in this thesis is the glucocorticoid receptor (GR), which belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily of ligand activated transcription factors. The nuclear receptors share three conserved structural domains, the N-terminal transactivating domain, the central DNA-binding domain and the C-terminal ligand-binding domain. LÄS MER
