    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

  3. 3. Plasticity of the developing glutamate synapse in the hippocampus

    Författare :Therése Abrahamsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :synaptic plasticity; long-term potentiation; short-term potentiation; silent synapse; development; hippocampus; glutamate;

    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

  4. 4. Cisplatin-induced tumor cell death signaling and potentiation by energy metabolism inhibitors

    Författare :Linda Strandberg Ihrlund; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    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

  5. 5. Plasticity in mice nociceptive spinal circuits -role of cell adhesion molecules
