Sammanfattning : Immediate-early genes of the fos and jun families encode proteins that dimerize to form a complex of activator protein 1 and regulate the expression of a number of genes in the nervous system. Ethanol has previously been shown to induce alterations in expression of fos and jun genes in the brain. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Graves' disease (GD) is a complex autoimmune disorder characterized by hyperthyroidism and diffuse goitre. 25-50% of the patients with GD develop eye symptoms, Graves' ophthalmopathy (GO). The overall aim of this thesis was to explore the molecular etiology of GD and GO. LÄS MER
3. Methodological studies of eicosanoid enzyme gene expression in vascular endothelium exposed to biomechanical stress
Sammanfattning : Prostaglandins are the major eicosanoids synthesized by vascular endothelial cells, and the vasculature is an important target organ for their bioactive metabolites. In vitro studies have shown that biomechanical forces are important regulators of vascular expression of prostanoid enzymes and release of metabolites. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This study explores the role of transcriptional regulation important in the development of L-DOPA-induced dyskinesia in a rat model of Parkinson’s disease. In patients with Parkinson’s disease, dyskinesia is one of the most difficult complications of the DA-replacement therapy by L-DOPA. LÄS MER
5. NR4A orphan nuclear receptors in immediate early regulation of retinoid signaling and neuroprotection
Sammanfattning : NR4A receptors show distinct properties that make them unique within the family of nuclear receptors. They lack a ligand-binding cavity and a canonical coactivator-binding site and they are induced both in vivo and in vitro in an immediate early way by an extremely wide repertoire of substances/conditions.
