  1. 1. Stem and progenitor cells in brain ad breast malignancies

    Författare :Gabriella Honeth; Bröstca-genetik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neural progenitor cells; glioma; migration; chemokines; cancer stem cells; breast cancer; CD44; CD24;

    Sammanfattning : Stem cells have qualities that clearly distinguish them from all other cells. Capabilities like self-renewal, differentiation and migration make them truly powerful. This thesis deals with different aspects of stem/progenitor cells in relation to cancer. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Modeling Neural Stem Cell and Glioma Biology

    Författare :Tobias Bergström; Karin Forsberg-Nilsson; Staffan Johansson; Sven Påhlman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neural stem cell; integrins; glioma; PDGF; mast cell; Molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is focused on neural stem cell (NSC) and glioma biology. I discuss how NSCs interact with extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins in the stem cell niche, and investigate the consequences of deregulated Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) signaling for embryonic NSCs in transgenic mice.

  3. 3. Epigenetics of paediatric glioma stem cells; focusing on exosomes, miRNAs and DNA methylation

    Författare :Ágota Tüzesi; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epigenetics; microRNA; DNA methylation; exosomes; glioblastoma; paediatric; glioma stem cells; neural stem cells; TMZ response;

    Sammanfattning : Tumours in the central nervous system are accountable for the majority of cancer-related deaths in children. Glioblastoma multiforme, one of the deadliest of the central nervous system tumours, is partly driven by glioma stem cells. The generation and maintenance of these cells is orchestrated by complex genetic and epigenetic mechanisms. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Stem cell based therapy of malignant brain tumors

    Författare :Daniel Bexell; Sektion IV; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neural stem cell; pericyte; mesenchymal stem cell; neuroblast; subventricular zone; cancer stem cell; rat; glioma; cancer;

    Sammanfattning : Malignant brain tumor is a highly invasive and vascularized cancer. Current forms of therapy are not curative and can, at best, prolong survival for patients with this disease. The mean survival is only around 15 months. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Neural Stem and Progenitor Cells : Cellular Responses to Known and Novel Factors

    Författare :Jimmy Larsson; Karin Forsberg-Nilsson; Ola Hermanson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neural stem cell; differentiation; proliferation; migration; PDGF; SCF; NRBP2; medulloblastoma; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Medical Biochemistry; Medicinsk biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Neural stem cell self-renewal and differentiation are tightly regulated events during CNS development, leading to cell division into new neural stem cells or the formation of neurons and glial cells. This thesis focuses on the cellular responses induced by known and novel factors in neural stem and progenitor cells (NSPCs). LÄS MER
