  1. 1. Mucins, Cystic Fibrosis and PDZ protein interactions

    Författare :Emily Malmberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mucin; PDZ; transmembrane; MUC1; Cystic Fibrosis; clathrin; CFTR; PDZK1; Bcr; endocytosis; MUC17;

    Sammanfattning : Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is caused and characterized by mutations in the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane conductance Regulator (CFTR) gene. The dominating feature of the disease is mucus accumulation on mucosal surfaces, but no direct functional connection between mucus and CFTR is known. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Advances in Pharmacological Treatment of Cystic Fibrosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Örebro : Örebro university

    Författare :Igor Oliynyk; Örebro universitet.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cystic fibrosis; CFTR; chloride transport; N-acetylcysteine; NO-donors; duramycin; intracellular calcium; azithromycin; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicin; Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inborn, hereditary disease, due to mutations in the gene for a cAMP-activated chloride (Cl-) channel, the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). As a result of impaired ion and water transport,the airway mucus is abnormally viscous, which leads to bacterial colonization. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Towards Pharmacological Treatment of Cystic Fibrosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Charlotte Andersson; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; cystic fibrosis; airway epithelium; genotype; CFTR; chloride transport; genistein; phenotype; phenylbutyrate; S-nitrosoglutathione; Cellbiologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi; entomologi; Entomology;

    Sammanfattning : S-nitrosogluthatione is an endogenous substance, present at decreased levels in the lungs of CF patients and was recently found to induce mature CFTR in airway epithelial CF cell lines. We show that S-nitrosoglutathione in physiological concentrations increases the presence of ΔF508 CFTR in the cell membrane and induces cAMP dependent chloride transport in cystic fibrosis airway epithelial cells.

  4. 4. Chloride transport and inflammation in cystic fibrosis airways

    Detta är en avhandling från Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Författare :Georgia Varelogianni; Örebro universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cystic fibrosis; CFTR; chloride efflux; N-acetylcysteine; ambroxol; duramycin; Nod-like receptors; cytokines; Medicin; Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Cystic fibrosis (CF) is one of the most common lethal, autosomal recessive inherited diseases among Caucasians. It is caused by a mutation in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), a chloride channel activated by cyclic AMP. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Gastroduodenal epithelial transport in patients with cystic fibrosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg

    Författare :Karin Edshage Hallberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cystic fibrosis; CFTR; intestinal motility; gastric secretion; IgA; Ussing chamber; intestinal permeability; genotype;

    Sammanfattning : Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease where respiratory failure due to chronic lung infection is the major cause of death. A defective protein, cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) alters chloride epithelial transport. LÄS MER
