  1. 1. Studies on the assembly of cytosolic lipid droplets. Importance of Phospholipase D and ADRP in the process

    Nyckelord :Lipid droplets; triglycerides; caveolin; Phospholipase D PLD ; adipocyte differentiation related protein ADRP ; EGCG;

    Sammanfattning : The storage of triglycerides in cells such as adipocytes, liver or muscle cells is of great physiological importance, having implications for our most important metabolic diseases such as obesity, the metabolic syndrome and type II diabetes. A common denominator in these diseases is the insulin resistance, which is also highly related to the production of atherogenic lipoproteins and the development of atherosclerosis and consequently cardio-vascular diseases.

  2. 2. Lipid storage and secretion. Studies on VLDL assembly and foam cell formation

    Författare :Björn Magnusson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :ADP-ribosylation factor 1; very low density lipoprotein; lipid droplet; adipocyte differentiation-related protein; hypoxia; foam cell;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with formation of two factors of upmost importance for the development of atherosclerosis: the triglyceride rich very low density lipoproteins 1 (VLDL1) and the lipid loaded macrophages ("foam cells"- characteristic features of the atherosclerotic lesion). Both these processes depend on the cellular accumulation of lipids. LÄS MER
