  1. 1. Melanophore a2-Adrenoceptors

    Författare :Samuel Svensson; Susanna Cotecchia; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The present study provides new insight into the pharmacology, the signal transduction mechanisms and the molecular biology of a2-adrenoceptors (a2-ARs) in black pigment cells (melanophores) of a teleost fish, the cuckoo wrasse (Labrus ossifagus L.). LÄS MER

  2. 2. α1- and α2-Adrenoceptors in the Eye : Pharmacological and Functional Characterization

    Författare :Anna Wikberg-Matsson; Thomas Mittag; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; α1-adrenoceptor subtypes; α2-adrenoceptor subtypes; iris; ciliary body; choroid; retina; ciliary artery; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi; Ophtalmology; oftalmiatrik;

    Sammanfattning : α1- and α2-Adrenoceptors are involved in various physiological events in the eye: blood flow regulation, aqueous humor dynamics and pupil regulation. The α1- and α2-adrenoceptors can be further subdivided into six subtypes (α1A, α1B, α1D, α2A , α2B, and α2C ). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Function of B2-adrenoceptors on alveolar macrophages

    Författare :Anita Zetterlund; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; A;

    Sammanfattning : B2-Agonists are very effective drugs for bronchodilatation, provide a rapid reliefof symtoms in asthma, and are recommended as first line treatment, together withsteroids. The relaxation of bronchial smooth muscles is a well established effectof B-agonists, but their eftects on inflammatory cells in the airways are less certain. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Blood Flow Regulation and Inflammatory Response in Experimental Models of Diabetes

    Författare :Ulrika Pettersson; Mia Phillipson; Leif Jansson; Johanna Henriksnäs; Mikael Rydén; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Islets; beta-cells; pancreas; inflammation; obesity; adipose tissue; rats; mice; leukocytes; beta3-adrenoceptors; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Type 2 diabetes is caused by defect pancreatic islet β-cells together with peripheral insulin resistance. The disease is often accompanied by obesity with associated low-grade visceral adipose tissue inflammation, which contributes to insulin resistance. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Regulation of chloride secretion in HT29 cells studied by X-ray microanalysis

    Författare :Wei Zhang; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anatomy; epithelium; chloride channel; HT29 cells; ion transport; volume; X-ray microanalysis; G-protein coupled receptors; α2-adrenoceptors; purinoceptors; muscarinic receptors; Anatomi; Anatomy; Anatomi; Human Anatomy; anatomi;

    Sammanfattning : Several aspects of Cl- secretion in epithelial cells were investigated. Methods to prepare cultured cellsfor X-ray microanalysis, in order to study volume-regulating chloride transport were evaluated. LÄS MER
