    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industrial organisation; administration and economics; Industriell organisation; administration och ekonomi;

    Sammanfattning : In a time when corruption is receiving increasing media coverage and when many claim to wage a war on corruption, this book brings up the need for a problematisation and an increased understanding of the different manifestations – the vicissitudes – of corruption and also what measures are taken against it. The book advances the claim that corruption is tightly related to modernity and particularly to a transgression of the public / private dichotomy. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Folkhemmets styvbarn : Humanioras legitimitet i svensk kunskapspolitik 1935–1980

    Författare :Hampus Östh Gustafsson; Anders Ekström; Thomas Karlsohn; Thomas Kaiserfeld; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : This study investigates how the legitimacy of the humanities was renegotiated in the context of Swedish politics of knowledge 1935–1980, a period that saw the establishment of a new regime of legitimacy based on rational planning. While higher education and research in general expanded and were turned into prioritised sectors of the welfare state, the humanities were not successfully integrated into the new regime. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Exercise and angiogenic growth factors in human skeletal muscle

    Författare :Thomas Gustafsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Adapatation; angiogenesis; angiogenic growth factors; blood flow; gene expression; gene regulation; human; ischaemia; skeletal muscle; training;

    Sammanfattning : Long-term electrical stimulation and endurance exercise increase the amount of capillaries in skeletal muscle. VEGF-A is a well-characterized stimulatory angiogenic growth factor and has shown to play an important role in angiogenesis in pathological conditions in humans and in physiological conditions in animal models.

  5. 5. Regulation and actions of insulin-like growth factor binding proteins in vascular smooth muscle cells

    Författare :Thomas Gustafsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) has multiple actions on vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMCs) function. In the circulation and in extracellular fluids, IGF-I is complexed to high affinity IGF-binding proteins (IGFBPs), which modulate IGF-I bioactivity. The present study focused on expression and regulation of IGFBPs in VSMCs. LÄS MER
