  2. 2. The Carboxyl Ester Lipase Gene. Organization, Evolution and Transcriptional Regulation in Exocrine Pancreas and Mammary Gland

    Författare :Ulf Lidberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NF-1; pseudogene; evolution; pancreas; carboxyl ester lipase; regulation; duplication; promoter; enhancer; locus; gene structure; mammary gland;

    Sammanfattning : The carboxyl ester lipase (CEL) is an important enzyme for the intestinal absorption of dietary lipids. In humans the gene is highly expressed in exocrine pancreas and in the lactating mammary gland. It is secreted in an inactive form and becomes activated by bile salts in the intestine. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Selenoproteins in the Bovine Mammary Gland. Regulation of mRNA and Protein Expression

    Författare :Katharina Bruzelius; Tillämpad biokemi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Livsmedelsteknik; Food and drink technology; metabolism; Biokemi; Metabolism; Biochemistry; Naturvetenskap; milk; Natural science; cancer; prolactin; insulin; hydrocortisone; retinoic acid; MAC-T; northern blot; two-dimensional electrophoresis; bovine mammary gland; selenium; selenoprotein;

    Sammanfattning : Selenium is a micronutrient that is essential for many important life processes due to the action of the specific selenoproteins containing one or more of the 21st amino acid, selenocysteine. Twenty-five selenoprotein genes have been found in the human genome but the function of many of them is not yet known. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Post-translational modifications in mammary gland development and mammary tumor progression

    Författare :Ting Zhuang; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women. Estrogen receptor α (ERα) signaling and p53 signaling have important roles in breast cancer progression. Therefore, post-translational modifications of ERα and p53 play critical roles in breast cancer. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Effects of sex steroids and tamoxifen on matrix metalloproteinase activity and generation of endostatin in the breast

    Författare :Ulrika W. Nilsson; Charlotta Dabrosin; Lena Claesson-Welsh; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Angiogenesis; Breast cancer; TGF-β1; Endostatin; Estradiol; Mammary gland; Matrix metalloproteinases; MCF-7; Microdialysis; Nude mice; Tamoxifen; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Sammanfattning : Sex steroids are inevitable in women. However, long-term exposure to sex steroids increases the risk of breast cancer. A complete understanding of sex steroid control of the breast and how it relates to breast cancer risk is still lacking. LÄS MER
