  1. 1. Cholesterol in T cells homeostasis, plasma membrane organization and signaling

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Författare :Saleemulla Mahammad; Ingela Parmryd; Thomas Harder; [2010]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plasma membrane; T cells; Cholesterol; Lipid rafts; Membrane organization; Cholesterol homeostasis; cholesteryl esters; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Cell biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Cellbiologi; Cell Biology; cellbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The plasma membrane of eukaryotic cells contains cholesterol and glycosphingolipids enriched nanodomains known as lipid rafts; which are believed to exist in a liquid ordered (lo) state. Methyl-beta-cyclodextrin (MBCD) is used to deplete cellular cholesterol and a widespread assumption is that MBCD preferentially targets cholesterol in lipid rafts. LÄS MER

  3. 3. High Blood Cholesterol. Physician and Patient Perspectives

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Community Medicine, Malmö University Hospital

    Författare :Margareta Troein; [1996]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; qualitative method; practice guideline; pharmacist; life-style; information; hypercholesterolemia; health education; health belief; framework; family physician; family medicine; Cholesterol; counseling; screening; Social medicine; Socialmedicin; samhällsmedicin;

    Sammanfattning : Scientific evidence of the causal relationship between high blood cholesterol and risk for coronary heart disease prompted extensive professional and public interest in practical application in the 1980's. Among other things, national guidelines for lipid lowering were published in Sweden in 1988. Mass media covered the topic extensively. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Ion channels and electrical activity in vascular smooth muscle: Effects of calcium store depletion, cholesterol and cholesterol-lowering drugs

    Detta är en avhandling från Andreas Bergdahl, BMC F12, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Andreas Bergdahl; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fysiologi; Physiology; statins; endothelin; cholesterol; caveolae; smooth muscle; TRP; Ca2 channels; SOC;

    Sammanfattning : Smooth muscle cells (SMCs) in the vessel wall contract to regulate blood flow and pressure, a function essential for normal circulation through tissues. On the other hand, migration and proliferation of SMCs are important factors in vascular disease, such as atherosclerosis and restenosis following surgical dilatation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Cholesterol-lowering and anti-atherogenic effects of oats in mice

    Detta är en avhandling från Andreas Bergdahl, BMC F12, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Författare :Kristina E Andersson; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cholesterol; Inflammation; Bile acids; Atherosclerosis; Oats; Beta-glucans;

    Sammanfattning : The cholesterol-lowering effect of oats is well established, but the crucial properties eliciting this effect need to be further investigated to optimize the use of oats as functional foods. Furthermore, there are almost no reports investigating the effect of oats on atherosclerosis development. LÄS MER
