  1. 1. Proteoglycan Lectin Domain Interactions in Extracellular Matrix Assembly

    Författare :Anders Olin; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomedicinska vetenskaper allmänt ; General biomedical sciences; crystal structure; network formation; collagen IX; N-glycans; PRELP; cross-linking; fibulin-2; lectin; G3; ECM; proteoglycan;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on the C-terminal G3 region of the large aggregating proteoglycans that are found in complex with hyaluronan in the extracellular matrix. The G3 region contains a C-type lectin domain that binds different extracellular matrix proteins playing an integral role in tissue organization during development and remodeling. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Extracellular Matrix Remodelling-Proteoglycan and collagen turnover in arthritis

    Författare :Anette Bjärdahlen; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Arthritis; collagen; cartilage; myofibroblasts; pannus; proteoglycan; Skeleton; muscle system; rheumatology locomotion; reumatologi; Skelett; muskelsystem;

    Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic, inflammatory and systemic disease characterised by joint destruction and pannus formation. To enlarge the understanding how pannus and granulation tissue are formed two animal models were used; one using cartilage wrapped in cotton and implanted into a rat air pouch (AP) and one where mBSA induced arthritis (AIA) was performed.

  3. 3. Endocytosis of therapeutic macromolecules in tumor cells - Mechanistic aspects of the proteoglycan receptor function

    Författare :Anders Wittrup; Bröstcancer-genetik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LL-37; heparan sulfate; glypican; endocytosis; drug delivery; DNA uptake; Cancer; cell penetrating peptides; non-viral gene delivery; organelle purification; proteoglycan; syndecan.;

    Sammanfattning : Novel therapeutics to combat cancer are urgently needed. Most current pharmacological therapies have severe side effects and are seldom curative. Macromolecular drugs, and in particular nucleic acid based drugs, offer a potential remedy for this situation. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Atherogenic lipoproteins and their interaction with proteoglycans

    Författare :Christofer Flood; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :; apolipoprotein B; atherosclerosis; LDL; proteoglycan; sPLA2; retention;

    Sammanfattning : Atherosclerosis is a multi-factorial disease and its pathogenesis is still unclear. However, accumulating evidence during recent years has led to the concept that subendothelial retention of atherogenic lipoproteins is the initiating event in atherogenesis. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Aggrecan fragments as biomarkers in osteoarthritis

    Författare :Staffan Larsson; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; protease; Aggrecan; osteoarthritis; proteoglycan; knee injury; biomarker; aggrecanase;

    Sammanfattning : Background: In osteoarthritis (OA) the balance of cartilage matrix synthesis and degradation is disturbed, resulting in a gradual destruction of the articular cartilage. Matrix components released into body fluids by proteolytic cleavage can be used as biomarkers of ongoing processes. LÄS MER
