  1. 1. Mechanosensitive transcriptional regulation of gene expression in smooth muscle. Implications for health and disease

    Författare :Fatima Daoud; Molekylär kärlfysiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; smooth muscle cell; phenotypic modulation; Yap Taz; MRTFA; hypertension; atherosclerosis;

    Sammanfattning : Smooth muscle participates in forming the wall of hollow organs, tracts, and blood vessels. Therefore, it plays a critical role in mediating vital functions in the body including regulation of blood pressure. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of vascular smooth muscle cell phenotype - Implications for vascular disease states

    Sammanfattning : As the world population is pushing toward 8 billion, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) remain the leading cause of death worldwide, representing 30% of all global deaths. A large body of work has recognized that smooth muscle cells (SMCs) surrounding the blood vessels play a prominent role in the development and progression of cardiovascular diseases. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The Extended Role of the Molecular Chaperone CCT

    Författare :Andreas Svanström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :CCT oligomer; Actin; CCT delta; CCT epsilon; Gelsolin; MRTF-A; Cell morphology;

    Sammanfattning : The oligomeric chaperone CCT is a large ATP-dependent chaperonin that consists of two rings placed back-to-back with eight different paralogous subunits with a size of ~ 55 kDa that sit in each of the two rings. The function of CCT is mainly to fold the abundant proteins actin and tubulin, components of the cytoskeleton. LÄS MER
