    Sammanfattning : Cellular growth and function are controlled by stimulatory and inhibitory factors actingthrough specific receptors. The present thesis focuses on the role of growth factors, theirreceptors and signalling pathways in normal and neoplastic thyroid epithelial cell biology. LÄS MER

  2. 2. A microscopic investigation of miR-34c and miR-205 in Prostate Cancer

    Författare :Zandra Hagman; Malmö Klinisk kemi; []

    Sammanfattning : The complex genetics of cancer allows tumors to grow and spread undeterred by the control mechanisms of the cell. The importance of protein-coding genes in tumorigenesis is well established. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Hormonal regulation of liver and tumor growth

    Författare :Ville Wallenius; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Liver; cytokine; interleukin-6; tumor necrosis factor; primary liver growth promoter; cyproterone acetate; nafenopin; hepatocyte growth factor; HGF receptor; tumor; sarcoma; N-terminal; truncated;

    Sammanfattning : The aims of this thesis were to investigate the regulatory functions of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor-a (TNF-a) on liver growth, and the importance of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and the HGF receptor (Met) for growth of mesenchyme-derived tumors. The studies on different types of liver growth, measured as weight, DNA and protein content, and DNA synthesis, were performed on mice lacking the IL-6 or the TNF receptor-1 gene back-crossed to the C57bl/6 strain.

    Sammanfattning : Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women worldwide and the second leading cause of cancer death. It is a heterogeneous disease and is subdivided into different subtypes, all with different treatment responses and survival outcomes. LÄS MER

  5. 5. GDNF and its receptors : A structure-function analysis of the NCAM-GDNF-GFRalpha1 complex and an examination of potential receptor candidates

    Författare :Dan Sjöstrand; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Neurotrophic factors are small, secreted proteins that are important players in the development and maintenance of the nervous system. Their functions span from neuronal survival and migration to neurite outgrowth and axon guidance, and in some cases even programmed cell death. LÄS MER
