  1. 1. Lipoprotein(a) in cardiovascular disease

    Författare :Ulf Lundstam; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :atherosclerosis; Lipoprotein a ; LDL; extracellular matrix; women;

    Sammanfattning : The atherosclerotic process is continuous and starts early in life. Risk factors for atherosclerosis include hyperlipidemia, hypertension, smoking and diabetes mellitus. Fatty streaks characterised by lipid-laden macrophages are early signs of atherosclerosis. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Biophysical Studies of Apolipoprotein A-IM and a Partitioning study

    Författare :Malin Suurkuusk; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Apolipoprotein A-IMilano; Apolipoprotein A-I; Lipoprotein; Lipid; Microcalorimetry; DCS; Denaturation; Guanidine Hydrochloride; Physics; Fysik; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Sammanfattning : The major part of this thesis deals with the similarities and differences in some biophysical properties of apolipoprotein A-I (apo A-I) and the molecular variant apolipoprotein A-IMilano (apo A-IM), and the influence on lipid binding. A model compound partitioning study has also been performed. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Lipoprotein lipase : mechanism for adaptation of activity to the nutritional state

    Författare :Gengshu Wu; Thomas Olivecrona; Gunilla Olivecrona; Peter Nisson-Ehle; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; adipose tissue; heparin; extracellular; nutrition; turnover; actinomycin; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Sammanfattning : Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is an enzyme to hydrolyze triglycerides in lipoproteins and thereby make the fatty acids available for cellular metabolic reactions. Short-term fasting down-regulates LPL activity in adipose tissue. This regulation is through post-translational mechanism. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The interplay between lipoproteins, immunity and tryptophan metabolism in atherosclerosis

    Författare :Konstantinos A. Polyzos; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality worldwide. Atherosclerosis is initiated by the infiltration and accumulation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the vascular wall, which activates the innate and adaptive arm of immunity, thereby causing chronic vascular inflammation.

  5. 5. Regulation of Lipoprotein Lipase Activity : an In-vitro Study of a Complex and Dynamic System

    Författare :Oleg Kovrov; Gunilla Olivecrona; Aivar Lookene; Mikael Larsson; Geesje Dallinga-Thie; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Triglyceride Metabolism; Lipoprotein lipase; Angiopoietin-Like Proteins; Apolipoproteins; Isothermal titration calorimetry; Biochemistry; biokemi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Sammanfattning : The progress of human society outpaces our biological evolution, and this brings unexpected health problems. The industrial revolution brought up dramatic changes in nutrition and lifestyle – we are increasingly shifting towards a nutrient-rich Western-patterned diet and to a sedentary lifestyle. LÄS MER
