  1. 1. Satellite cells in human skeletal muscle : molecular identification quantification and function

    Författare :Mona Lindström; Lars-Eric Thornell; Hannu Kalimo; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; satellite cell markers; NCAM; Pax7; MyoD; myogenin; DLK1 FA1; c-Met; human skeletal muscle; immunohistochemistry; muscle growth; muscle hypertrophy; Morphology; cell biology; pathology; Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Sammanfattning : Skeletal muscle satellite cells located between the plasma membrane and the basal lamina of muscle fibres, could for many years, only be studied in situ by electron microscopy. The introduction of immunohistochemistry and the discovery of molecular markers of satellite cells then made them accessible for light microscopic studies and a wealth of information is today available.

  2. 2. Food insecurity and coping strategies in semiarid areas : the case of Mvumi in central Tanzania

    Författare :Emma T. Liwenga; Tor A Benjaminsen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Food insecurity; semiarid; local knowledge; seasonality; coping strategies; livelihood strategies.; Human geography; Kulturgeografi; Human Geography; kulturgeografi;

    Sammanfattning : This study examines how people in dryland areas cope with food insecurity and adversities over time. It draws from the experience of the Gogo people living in Mvumi in the semiarid zone of central Tanzania, an area with a long history of food shortages. The study specifically examines the potential for dryland resources to sustain livelihoods. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Human Lean : Combining Sense of Coherence and Lean to achieve productivity and health

    Författare :Bengt Halling; Lars Bengtsson; Katarina Wijk; Jörgen Eklund; Bonnie Poksinska; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; barriers; health promotion; implementation; Lean; leadership; management; organizational change; productivity; sense of coherence; supportive factors; Teknik och hälsa; Technology and Health;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this thesis is to identify barriers to and supportive factors for Lean implementation and to investigate how application of the Sense of Coherence (SOC) theory combined with Lean philosophy may affect health and productivity. The thesis is based on five studies. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Human Forkhead Genes

    Författare :Stefan Pierrou; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :transcription factor; FREAC; human forkhead homologues;

    Sammanfattning : The forkhead family constitutes a group of genes which encodes transcription factors that share a common DNA-binding domain, the forkhead domain. The first member to be discovered was the Drosophila melanogaster gene fork head. Members of this family have been found in a variety of species from bakers' yeast to man. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Human olfaction : Associations with longitudinal assessment of episodic memory, dementia, and mortality risk

    Författare :Ingrid Ekström; Jonas Olofsson; Maria Larsson; Devangere Devanand; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; olfaction; odor identification; self-assessments; aging; episodic memory; ApoE; dementia; Alzheimer’s disease; vascular dementia; mortality; cohort study; population-based.; psykologi; Psychology;

    Sammanfattning : A declining sense of smell is a common feature in older age. Above and beyond diminished smelling capacity due to normal processes of human aging, impairments in olfactory function have also been linked to numerous ill-health related outcomes, such as cognitive dysfunctions, dementia pathology and even an increased risk of death.
