Sammanfattning : Abstract The aims of the present thesis were to examine neuropeptide Y (NPY) responses in different human and guinea pig vascular beds and in cultured human vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) and to characterize, with different NPY agonists and the specific NPY Y1 receptor antagonist (BIBP3226), the NPY receptors involved. NPY-induced strong and potent contractions in human cerebral and subcutaneous arteries and in guinea pig basilar arteries. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The vitamin K-dependent and ubiquitously expressed 82 kDa glycoprotein product of the growth-arrest-specific-gene 6, Gas6, shows 44% sequence identity to the anticoagulant protein, protein S. Both proteins share further the same domain organization. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Wound healing involves the co-ordinated actions of several cell types, soluble cell mediators and extracellular matrix (ECM). This research project intended to investigate the role of certain ECM proteins in different processes during tissue repair by studying the interaction between dermal cells and ECM. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : Hyperglycemia, deficient insulin secretion, and insulin resistance are the characteristic pathogenetic features of type 2 diabetes (T2D), hallmarked by functional and survival defects of the insulin-producing islet beta-cell. The primary pathogenesis of T2D probably involves both genetic and environmental forces, and hyperglycemia and very commonly hyperlipidemia might further aggravate beta-cell dysfunction. LÄS MER
