  1. 1. Spleno-pancreatic development assessed by 3D molecular imaging

    Författare :Amir Asayesh; Ulf Ahlgren; Beatriz Sosa-Pineda; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Cell biology; Spleen; Pancreas; Imaging; Development; Cellbiologi; miljömedicinsk utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental Biology;

    Sammanfattning : The development of different organs and tissues along the gastrointestinal tract, including the pancreas, depends on signalling between the endoderm and the adjacent mesenchyme. The Nkx gene Bapx1 is involved in spatial control of organ-positioning in the spleno-pancreatic region, and deficiency in this gene results in unacceptable proximity of the splenic mesenchyme to the pancreas.

  2. 2. Pancreatic Endocrine Tumourigenesis : Genes of potential importance

    Författare :Térèse A. Johansson; Barbro Eriksson; Britt Skogseid; Gunnar Westin; Martin Bäckdahl; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Understanding signalling pathways that control pancreatic endocrine tumour (PET) development and proliferation may reveal novel targets for therapeutic intervention. The pathogenesis for sporadic and hereditary PETs, apart from mutations of the MEN1 and VHL tumour suppressor genes, is still elusive. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Studies of individual pancreatic -cells : Electrophysiological analysis of rhythmic behaviour and development of new techniques

    Sammanfattning : The insulin concentration in blood varies periodically, which is believed to prevent down-regulation of the hormone receptors. Loss of the regular insulin oscillations is considered to be an early sign of developing diabetes. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The MEN 1 Pancreas : Tumor Development and Haploinsufficiency

    Författare :Margareta Halin Lejonklou; Britt Skogseid; Peter Stålberg; Andreea Barbu; Gerard Doherty; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type I Syndrome (MEN 1) is a monogenic autosomal dominantly inherited cancer syndrome caused by a heterozygous loss of the MEN1 gene, predisposing for endocrine cell proliferation and tumor formation. MEN 1 carriers classically develop tumors in endocrine organs; the parathyroids, the endocrine pancreas, and the pituitary. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Regulation of the exocrine pancreas in growing pigs, with special emphasis on entero-pancreatic reflexes

    Författare :Lena Evilevitch; Biologiska institutionen; []

    Sammanfattning : The regulation of the exocrine pancreas has been under thorough investigation for many decades. In rats, cholecystokinin (CCK) is considered to be the major gut hormone stimulating the pancreas to releasing the digestive enzymes. LÄS MER
