  1. 1. Astrocytes, reactive gliosis and CNS regeneration

    Författare :Ulrika Wilhelmsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CNS regeneration; astrocytes; reactive gliosis; intermediate filaments;

    Sammanfattning : The regenerative capacity in the adult central nervous system (CNS) is very limited, and the glial cells have been implicated in the inhibition of CNS regeneration. In essentially all CNS pathologies, astrocytes are activated and this process is known as reactive gliosis. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The Role of Reactive Astrocytes in Brain Ischemia and Neurotrauma

    Författare :Lizhen Li; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; astrocytes; intermediate filaments; GFAP; vimentin; reactive gliosis; brain ischemia; neurotrauma;

    Sammanfattning : Astrocytes are the most abundant cell type in the central nervous system (CNS) and increasing evidence now suggests that they play an active role in various brain functions. Astrocytes are involved in the induction and maintenance of the blood brain barrier, as well as the induction and stabilization of neuronal synapses. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The effect of astrocytes and reactive gliosis on neurogenesis and astrogenesis in mice

    Författare :Åsa Widestrand; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; astrocytes; intermediate filaments; neural stem cells; neurogenesis; astrogenesis; hippocampus;

    Sammanfattning : Astrocytes are the most common cell type in mammalian central nervous system (CNS). Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) and vimentin constitute intermediate filaments (known also as nanofilaments), a part of the cytoskeleton, in astrocytes. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Role of intermediate filaments and expression of GFAP and S-100 in astrocytes

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg

    Författare :Mei Ding; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Astrocytes; Gliosis; Kainic acid; Transgenic mouse; S-100; GFAP; Vimentin; RVD regulatory volume decrease ; Taurine; Glutamine; Ascorbate; Glucose;

    Sammanfattning : Astrocytes participate in a variety of important physiologic and pathologic processes in the central nervous system (CNS). One of the most remarkable characteristics of astrocytes is their vigorous response to CNS injuries. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The importance of astroglial cells in ischemia, regeneration and angiogenesis

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg

    Författare :Andrea Lundkvist; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; astrocytes; Müller cells; retina; intermediate filaments; GFAP; vimentin; angiogenesis; VEGF-A; guidance; matrix-metalloprotease;

    Sammanfattning : Astrocytes in the CNS communicate with both neurons and blood vessels. In many CNS pathologies, astrocytes respond by becoming reactive. Whether their performance at this stage is beneficial or detrimental for CNS function is unclear. LÄS MER
