  1. 1. Human muscle spindles : complex morphology and structural organisation

    Författare :Jing-Xia Liu; William K. Ovalle; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :human; muscle spindle; intrafusal fiber; aging; biceps brachii; deep muscles of the neck; MyHC; mATPase; SERCA; anatomi; Human Anatomy; muscle spindIe;

    Sammanfattning : Muscle spindles are skeletal muscle mechanoreceptors that mediate the stretch reflex and provide axial and limb position information to the central nervous system. They have been proposed to play a major role in the pathophysiology of muscle pain. LÄS MER

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. ATP Dynamics in Pancreatic α- and β-cells

    Författare :Jia Li; Anders Tengholm; Erik Gylfe; Hindrik Mulder; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ATP; Ca2 ; β-cell; α-cell; SERCA; SOCE; muscarinic receptor; insulin secretion; glucagon secretion; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Glucose metabolism in pancreatic α- and β-cells is believed to regulate secretion of glucagon and insulin, respectively. In β-cells, ATP links glucose metabolism to electrical activity and insulin secretion. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The Beauty of the Bitter Devils : A Theoretical Study on Phosphate Molecules

    Författare :Maria Rudbeck; Andreas Barth; Margareta Blomberg; Leif Eriksson; Maria RUDBECK; Stockholms universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Phosphate transfer reactions are catalyzed by a large number of enzymes comprising kinases, mutases and phosphatases. These enzymes play a fundamental role in controlling numerous life processes and it is therefore important to understand the origin of their potent catalytic power. An example is the Ca2+-ATPase.

  5. 5. Physiological changes in mice deficient in different subtypes of thyroid hormone receptors : a focus on studies of heart and muscle

    Författare :Catarina Johansson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; heart rate; ECG; body temperature; [beta]-adrenergic receptor density; thyroid hormone; isometric twitch; SERCa;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of these studies was to determing the specific roles of the different subtypes of thyroid hormone receptors (TR), with focus on heart and muscle function, by using mice deficient in TR[alpha]1, TR[beta] (both TR[beta]1 and TR[beta]2 subtypes) and TR[alpha]1/[beta]. For this purpose, new techniques were set up to study various physiological parameters in these mice. LÄS MER
