  1. 1. Development of lentiviral vectors for CNS gene transfer

    Författare :Johan Jakobsson; Brain Repair and Imaging in Neural Systems (BRAINS); []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Biotechnology; Gene Therapy; Neurological disorders;

    Sammanfattning : Gene therapy in the brain is a promising treatment strategy that in the future may be used for several brain disorders, including Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and lysosomal storage diseases. By introducing a new gene, rather than providing a classical pharmacological drug, gene therapy offers the opportunity to treat neurological disorders by a single intervention. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Fibrinogen and susceptibility to myocardial infarction : Role of gene-gene and gene-environment interactions

    Författare :Maria Nastase Mannila; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Atherothrombosis; epistasis; fibrinogen; fibrinogen gamma; fibrin clot structure; haplotypes; myocardial infarction; pleiotropy; SNPs;

    Sammanfattning : Fibrinogen, the precursor of fibrin, is a glycoprotein synthesized in the liver and maintained in plasma at concentrations normally ranging between 2-4 g/L. The fibrinogen molecule consists of two sets of three non-identical polypeptide chains, which are encoded by the fibrinogen gamma (FGG), fibrinogen alpha (FGA) and fibrinogen beta (FGB) genes clustered on chromosome 4.

  3. 3. Immune recognition and early virus-cell interactions. Glycobiological aspects on HIV-1 gp120

    Författare :Gregers J. Gram; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 HIV-1 ; glycoprotein; gp120; glycosylation.;

    Sammanfattning : Human immunodeficiency virus types 1 and 2 (HIV-1 and HIV-2) are the etiological agents of AIDS in humans. The viral envelope glycoproteins gp120 and gp41 mediate the early virus-cell interaction of HIV with the target cells. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Glycoprotein G of Herpes simplex virus type 2. Antigenicity and genetic variability

    Författare :Jan-Åke Liljeqvist; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Herpes simplex virus type 2; glycoprotein G; antigenic regions; sequence variability;

    Sammanfattning : Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) causes genital lesions, meningitis and occasionally, severe neonatal infections. Globally HSV-2 infection is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Microarray analysis of gene expression in human adipocytes and adipose tissue

    Författare :Margareta Jernås; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :obesity; adipose tissue; insulin resistance; serum amyloid A; NAD P H:quinone oxidoreductase 1; Zinc-alpha2 glycoprotein; cell death-inducing DFFA-like effector A; DNA microarray;

    Sammanfattning : Obesity has reached epidemic proportions worldwide and is associated with several serious conditions such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, hyperlipidemia and atherosclerosis. Adipose tissue exerts important endocrine and immune functions through the release of adipokines. LÄS MER
