1. Immunocytochemical studies of excitatory amino acid neurotransmitters and transporters in the spinal cord and nucleus submedius
Sammanfattning : The amino acid glutamate is today regarded as the main fast excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and a large body of evidence support that glutamate serves as a neurotransmitter in primary afferent terminals in the spinal cord. Previous evidence also suggests that the closely related amino acid aspartate may serve a similar role in some primary afferent terminals. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on the NR3A and NR3B subunits of the excitatory glutamate receptor N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA). Functional NMDA receptors are believed to be tetrameric complexes with combinations of NR1 and NR2 subunits, and possible addition of NR3 subunits. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on the subunit NR3A, which together with subunits NR1, NR2A-NR2D and NR3B builds the excitatory glutamate receptor N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA). The receptor is most likely a tetramer, containing at least one NR1, probably two NR2 and sometimes one NR3 subunit. LÄS MER
4. Metabolic intervention with amino acids in coronary surgery : A clinical study with special reference to effects of glutamate and aspartate on myocardial metabolism
Sammanfattning : Amino acids, particularly glutamate and aspartate, have been suggested to be important for the tolerance to myocardial ischemia and for the recovery of the oxidative metabolism of the heart after ischemia. The objective of the present work was to investigate myocardial metabolism and how it is influenced by intravenous supply of glutamate and aspartate in association with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).

Sammanfattning : Over the past two decades, grafting of embryonic nigral tissue has developed into a feasible therapeutic strategy for Parkinson's disease (PD). It has become apparent that the degree of restoration of dopaminergic neurotransmission by the transplanted cells is highly correlated to the symptomatic relief. LÄS MER
