  1. 1. LTD4 signalling via beta-catenin: a possible link between inflammation and cancer

    Författare :Maryna Mezhybovska; Malmö Cellpatologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LTD4; beta-catenin; colorectal cancer; CysLT1R; proliferation; inflammation;

    Sammanfattning : The pro-inflammatory mediator LTD4 is an important component in the pathogenesis of inflammatory conditions as inflammatory bowel diseases. Patients suffering from inflammatory bowel diseases face an increased risk of intestinal cancer development. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Regulation of survival and proliferation of human intestinal epithelial cells by leukotriene D4

    Författare :Sailaja Paruchuri; Malmö Experimentell patologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rac; General pathology; pathological anatomy; Patologi allmän ; patologisk anatomi; PI3K; CREB; p90RSK; Erk-1 2; PKC; inflammation; migration apoptosis; proliferation; LTD4; cell survival;

    Sammanfattning : The pro-inflammatory mediator, Leukotriene D4 (LTD4) is a product of arachidonic acid cascade and has been implicated in asthma and inflammatory bowel diseases. Prolonged inflammatory conditions like ulcerative colitis increases the risk for the development of cancer and the factors that induce the chronic immune response remain uncertain. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Regulation of the cytoskeleton and the adhesiveness of intestinal epithelial cells by leukotriene D4

    Författare :Ramin Massoumi; Institutionen för translationell medicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oncology; Cytology; patologisk anatomi; Patologi allmän ; pathological anatomy; General pathology; PKC; vinculin; actin filament; focal adhesion; LTD4; integrin; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer; Biochemistry; Metabolism; Biokemi; metabolism;

    Sammanfattning : Leukotrienes belong to a family of biologically active conjugated trienes that are formed from arachidonic acid via the 5-lipoxygenase pathway and are important mediators of inflammatory reactions. The CysLT1 receptor that specifically serves as receptor for leukotriene D4 (LTD4) has been identified as a G-protein coupled receptor. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Influence of leukotriene D4 and cyclooxygenase-2 on cell survival

    Författare :Katarina Wikström; Malmö Experimentell patologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pathological anatomy; Patologi allmän ; General pathology; colorectal cancer; inflammation; apoptosis; LTD4; COX-2; patologisk anatomi;

    Sammanfattning : The pro-inflammatory effect of leukotrienes is an important element in the pathogenesis of multiple disorders, including asthma and inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). A serious concern for IBD patients is the increased risk of developing colorectal cancer and since there seems to be a general connection between inflammation and cancer we hypothesised that LTD4 induced signalling events could be involved in increasing the tumourgenic potential of cells.

  5. 5. Involvement of Eicosanoid Signaling in Intestinal Epithelial Cell Survival

    Författare :John Öhd; Malmö Experimentell patologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; General pathology; Tcf Lef; Bcl-2 family; b-catenin; 5-LO; apoptosis; cell survival; colorectal cancer; COX-2; LTD4; CysLT1 R; pathological anatomy; Patologi allmän ; patologisk anatomi;

    Sammanfattning : Eicosanoids are known to be involved in many different aspects of eukaryotic physiology and pathology. Notably, over the past 10 years much attention has been given to cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) due to its involvement in colorectal cancer. Less is known about the other major branch of arachidonic acid metabolism, namely the lipoxygenases (LO). LÄS MER
