  1. 1. Developmental exposure to mixtures of environmental pollutants : Studies on metabolism, developmental processes, and reproductive organs in zebrafish and chicken embryos

    Författare :Anna Mentor; Maria Jönsson; Patrick Babin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mixtures; Developmental toxicology; Endocrine disrupting chemicals; Metabolism; Feminization; Zebrafish; Chicken embryo; Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology; Biologi med inriktning mot miljötoxikologi; Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology; Biologi med inriktning mot miljötoxikologi; Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology; Biologi med inriktning mot miljötoxikologi; Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology; Biologi med inriktning mot miljötoxikologi;

    Sammanfattning : Humans and wildlife are continuously exposed to mixtures of environmental pollutants. Mixture toxicity can be challenging to predict due to interactions between chemicals and thus whole-mixture approaches are crucial in toxicology. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Environmental pollutants and the reproductive system in birds : Developmental effects of estrogenic compounds

    Författare :Cecilia Berg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Avian embryo; test system; xeno-estrogen; endocrine disruption; reproductive organ differentiation; oviduct; testis; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; Ecotoxicology; ekotoxikologi;

    Sammanfattning : A number of environmental pollutants have been shown to mimick the action of the female sex hormone estrogen and are, therefore, suspected to be responsible for reproductive abnormalities seen in wildlife. Test systems which can be used in hazard and risk assessment of chemicals with estrogenic effects are consequently needed. LÄS MER

  3. 3. A Comparative Study of Head Development in Mexican Axolotl and Australian Lungfish: Cell Migration, Cell Fate and Morphogenesis

    Författare :Rolf Ericsson; Rolf Ohlsson; Graham Budd; Lennart Olsson; Per Ahlberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Head development; axolotl; lungfish; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental Biology; miljömedicinsk utvecklingsbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The development of the vertebrate head is a complex process involving interactions between a multitude of cell types and tissues. This thesis describes the development of the cranial neural crest and of the visceral arch muscles in the head of two species. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Initiation of Innate Immune Responses in the Freshwater Crayfish Pacifastacus leniusculus

    Författare :Lee So Young; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; pattern recognition protein; innate immunity; crayfish; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; fysiologisk mykologi; Physiological Mycology;

    Sammanfattning : Prophenoloxidase (proPO) is a key enzyme for generation of melanin and is activated by the proPO activating enzyme (ppA) to its active form, PO. The active ppA was purified and cloned from crayfish hemocytes and it is a typical serine proteinase containing a clip, a proline-rich, and a glycine-rich domain. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Spinal Control of Locomotion : Developmental and Functional Aspects

    Författare :Nadine Rabe; Klas Kullander; Artur Kania; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuronal network; commissural interneuron; developmental interneuron subtypes; V3; mouse genetics; Pitx2; axon guidance; netrin-1; DCC; EphA4; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap; Medicinsk utvecklings- och neurobiologi; Developmental Neurosciences; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Sammanfattning : Neuronal networks are the central functional units of the nervous system. Knowledge about the identity of participating neurons and the assembly of these during development is crucial for the understanding of CNS function. LÄS MER
