  1. 1. Functions of PDGF-A and -C. Essential ligands for the PDGF alpha receptor

    Författare :Hans Boström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; platelet-derived growth factor; PDGF-A; PDGF-C; PDGF alpha receptor; extracellular retention; gene targeting; mouse development; epithelial-mesenchymal interaction; lung; alveolar formation; spina bifida; gastrointestinal villus;

    Sammanfattning : Altered protein kinase activity is a contributing factor in many diseases including most formsof human malignancies, and there is reason to believe that protein kinases will prove to be majordrug targets in the treatment of cancer. Protein kinases mediate most of the signal transduction ineukaryotic cells, regulating cellular events such as transcription, metabolism, proliferation,cytoskeletal rearrangement, migration, differentiation and apoptosis.

  2. 2. PDGF in cerebellar development and tumorigenesis

    Författare :Johanna Andræ; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Medulloblastoma is a highly malignant cerebellar childhood tumor. As in many other brain tumors, expression of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) and its receptors has been shown in medulloblastoma. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Conditional targeting of the PDGF-B gene

    Författare :Maria Enge; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; gene targeting; Cre loxP; PDGF; pericytes; diabetic retinopathy; brain injury; neurons;

    Sammanfattning : Platelet derived growth factors (PDGF) are known as mitogens for fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells (SMC) and glia cells in culture. Previous in vivo analyses have shown that PDGF-B is necessary for normal embryonic development and life after birth, but the relative importance of the various cellular sources of PDGF-B during development has not been clarified.

  5. 5. Roles of PDGF for Neural Stem Cells

    Författare :Mia Enarsson; Karin Nilsson; Bengt Westermark; Peter Eriksson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; CNS; stem cells; neuron; PDGF; proliferation; differentiation; ERK; microarray; transgenic mouse; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Stem cells are endowed with unique qualities: they can both self-renew and give rise to new mature cell types. Central nervous system (CNS) stem cells can give rise to neurons and glia. LÄS MER
