Sammanfattning : Introduction: Acute enhancements of muscle contractile properties and performance subsequent to a maximal or near maximal conditioning contraction are often termed post activation potentiation (PAP). Although still controversial, PAP is commonly linked to enhancements in the myosin regulatory light chain phosphorylation, leading to improvements in the excitation–contraction coupling. LÄS MER
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 : Synapses are highly plastic, i.e. they have the ability to change their signaling strength both in the short- and long-term (e.g. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Treatment of cancer is associated with challenges including the tumor development of resistance. By elucidating intracellular signal transduction pathways elicited by therapy it is possible to identify structures and processes crucial for induction of cell death. The aim is to exploit this knowledge to improve treatment strategies. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Introduction: To understand the function of the genes and their products in the pain system, studies will have to deal with complex issues related to intercellular communication, e.g. plasticity in neuronal networks. LÄS MER
