1. Studies of nucleotide receptors-induced calcium response in glomerular mesangial cells and afferent arterioles
Sammanfattning : It is known that intracellular calcium concentration ([Ca2+]i) changes in rat glomerular mesangial cells (GMC) and rabbit afferent arterioles (AA) in response to extracellular nucleotides. We studied the nucleotide-induced calcium response in cultured GMC and AA. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The aim of the thesis was to examine the expression and function of the extracellular nucleotide P2 receptors in the cardiovascular system. In the cardiovascular system nucleotides are released during shear stress, hypoxia, ischemia, from endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, aggregating platelets, inflammatory cells and erythrocytes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Airway inflammation is a defining feature of allergic rhinitis and asthma. Bacterial and viral infections are known to cause exacerbations of both diseases, but knowledge about the mechanisms involved is limited. LÄS MER
4. Alpha₁-adrenergic receptors in brown adipose tissue : thermogenic significance and mode of action
Sammanfattning : The main function of brown adipose tissue (BAT) is to produce heat in response to cold. Norepinephrine (NE), released from sympathetic nerve terminals, activates the tissue via binding to adrenergic receptors. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The nuclear hormone receptors (NRs) are a class of transcription factors that has attracted great interest due to their important roles in animal physiology and metabolism. Studies of knockout (KO) mouse models have indicated several pathophysiological conditions in which the NRs are involved. LÄS MER
