  1. 1. Tissue kallikrein: pathophysiological role in acute pancreatitis

    Författare :Mats Bläckberg; Helsingborg Kliniska Vetenskaper; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acute pancreatitis; aprotinin; alpha-macroglobulin; alpha1-proteinase inhibitor; turn over; kinin B2 receptor; kallidin; bradykinin; Tissue kallikrein; kallistatin; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Sammanfattning : Tissue kallikrein releases pharmacollogically highly active kinins from kininogen. Many other enzymes may also release kinins. The aim of the study was to clarify the pathophysiological role of tissue kallikrein in acute pancreatitis. Two sensitive and specific radioimmunoassays for porcine and human tissue kallikrein were developed. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The kallikrein-kinin system in primary hypertension : dynamics of circulating components of the kallikrein-kinin system in relation to the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system

    Författare :K. Peter Öhman; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :aldosterone; angiotensin Il; blood pressure; human; prekallikrein; renin; tissue kallikrein; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Kinins are potent vasodilatory and blood pressure lowering peptides, with additional effects on renal handling of electrolytes and water. The kallikrein-kinin system consists of two separate entities, one confined to the circulation and the other to both tissues and the circulation. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Kallikrein-related peptidases in human epidermis : studies on activity, regulation, and function

    Författare :Kristina Stefansson; Torbjörn Egelrud; Maria Brattsand; Mona Ståhle; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; desquamation; epidermis; stratum corneum; kallikrein-related peptidase; KLK; serine protease inhibitors; Dermatology and venerology; Dermatologi och venerologi;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction. The outermost layer of the epidermis, the stratum corneum (SC), plays a fundamental role in our defense against microorganisms, chemicals, and dehydration. The SC is composed of tightly packed keratinized skin cells, corneocytes. For a functioning skin it is essential that corneocytes are constantly shed (desquamated). LÄS MER

  4. 4. Structure, evolution and expression of glandular kallikrein genes

    Författare :Yvonne Ceder; Malmö Klinisk kemi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ileum.; Clinical chemistry; Klinisk kemi; Tissue distribution; Androgen responsive element; Ortholog; Evolution; Prostate cancer; Glandular kallikreins; Prostate-specific antigen;

    Sammanfattning : Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a worldwide used tool for the diagnosis and monitoring of prostate cancer. It is a serine protease and belongs to the family of glandular kallikreins. Humans have three classical glandular kallikreins, but it has been reported that rodents have many more. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Radiobiological effects of the thyroid gland - transcriptomic and proteomic responses to 131l and 211At exposure

    Författare :Nils Rudqvist; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; astatine-211; iodine-131; radionuclide therapy; nuclear medicine; environmental exposure; thyroid; radiation biology; transcriptomics; proteomics; ionizing radiation; toxicity; normal tissue damage; microarray; LC-MS; biomarker;

    Sammanfattning : Radionuclides are widely used in medicine. 131I is one of the most employed radionuclides and is administered to patients either bound to tumor targeting molecules or as halide to target the thyroid or thyroid cancer. LÄS MER
