  1. 1. Human extraocular muscles : molecular diversity of a unique muscle allotype

    Författare :Daniel Kjellgren; Fatima Pedrosa-Domellöf; Lars-Erik Thornell; Lillemor Wachtmeister; John Porter; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ophtalmology; extraocular; muscle; myosin; protein c; laminin; serca; immunocytochemistry; human; Oftalmiatrik; Ophtalmology; Oftalmologi; oftalmiatrik; Ophtalmology;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction: The extraocular muscles (EOMs) are considered a separate class of skeletal muscle, allotype. Myosin is the major contractile protein in muscle. The myosin heavy chain (MyHC) isoforms are the best molecular markers of functional heterogeneity of muscle fibers. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Study the role of patient-specific mutations by genetic disease modeling : From gene to function; A study to understand muscles

    Författare :Martin Dahl-Halvarsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Muscles; Myosin; MYH7; Myosin storage myopathy; Laing early-onset myopathy; Drosophila; TOR1A; DYT1; HCM; heart disease;

    Sammanfattning : Many genetic diseases inherited in a dominant fashion have a complex pathological pattern. TOR1A mediated Dystonia-1 (DYT1) is an example of incomplete penetrance, affecting only a third of the carriers. LÄS MER

  3. 3. A Muscle Perspective on the Pathophysiology of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis : Differences between extraocular and limb muscles

    Författare :Vahid M. Harandi; Jingxia Liu; Fatima Pedrosa Domellöf; Per Stål; Fawzi Kadi; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuromuscular junctions; Extraocular muscles; Skeletal muscle; Neurotrophic factor; Wnt; Motor neuron disease; Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; SOD1G93A mice; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a late-onset progressive neurodegenerative disorder. ALS has been traditionally believed to be primarily a motor neuron disease. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Muscles, Estrogen, and Bone

    Författare :Eva Ljunggren Ribom; Hans Mallmin; Karin Piehl-Aulin; Kim Thorsen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Muscle strength; Bone mineral density; Ultrasound; Body composition; Hormone replacement therapy; Estrogen receptor alpha; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Sweden has one of the highest incidences of osteoporotic fractures in the world. A more sedentary lifestyle is one of several proposed reasons for the increase in osteoporosis seen in the developed countries. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Biomechanical studies of finger extension function. Analysis with a new force measuring device and ultrasound examination in rheumatoid arthritis and healhty muscles

    Författare :Sofia Brorsson; Elena Gutierrez Farewik; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Grip force; finger extension force; ultrasound; hand exercise; rheumatoid arthritis; muscle architecture; GAT; DASH; SF-36; Muscles; Muscle rigity; Rheumatoid Arthritis; Exercise therapy;

    Sammanfattning : Aims: The overall aim of this thesis was to further our understanding of extensor muscles and their role for hand function. The aims of the studies were: To develop and evaluate a new device for finger extensor force measurements. To evaluate ultrasound as a tool for assessment of muscle architecture. LÄS MER
