  1. 1. G protein-coupled receptor regulation: The role of protein interactions and receptor trafficking

    Författare :Caroline Sandén; Drug Target Discovery; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; receptor trafficking; B1 receptor; receptor oligomerization; estrogen; GPER1; G protein-coupled estrogen receptor 1; EP24.15; BK; bradykinin; B1R; B2R; B2 receptor; GPCR; receptor maturation;

    Sammanfattning : The superfamily of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) is the largest gene family in the human genome. GPCR-mediated signaling operates in every human cell, and about 50% of existing clinically useful drugs act through GPCR. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Studies of a Proteinase-activated Cell Surface Receptor

    Författare :Sverker Nystedt; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; receptor; proteinase; PAR-2; molecular cloning; in situ hybridisation; Expression; G-protein; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The G protein-coupled receptors form one of the largest families of proteins involved in signalling between cells. It contains receptors for molecules as diverse as biogenic amines, glycoproteins and enzymes. The manuscripts included in this thesis together describe the initial characterisation of a previously unknown receptor of this class. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Galanin receptor ligands

    Författare :Johan Runesson; Ülo Langel; Lena Mäler; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Galanin; GALP; GPCR; Agonist; GalR; Chimeric peptide; Inositol phosphate production; Receptor specificity; Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi;

    Sammanfattning : In the nervous system galanin primarily displays a modulatory role. The galaninergic system consists of a number of bioactive peptides with a highly plastic expression pattern and three different receptors. The lack of receptor subtype selective ligands and antibodies have severely hampered the charac-terization of this system. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Expression and purification of membrane proteins: Focus on the G-protein coupled receptor MC4r

    Författare :Viveka Dolby; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi; Proteins; melanocortin 4 receptor; GPCR; purification; Expression; membrane proteins;

    Sammanfattning : Membrane proteins are crucial components of the cell and are involved in many biological processes. Recombinant overexpression systems together with different purification methods are necessary to obtain large amounts of purified receptor for biophysical and functional studies. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Vascular Endothelin and Angiotensin Receptors Regulation in Inflammatory Arterial Disorders

    Författare :Ivan Dimitrijevic; Lund Medicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ischemic heart disease; resistance artery; giant cell arteritis; temporal artery; immunohistochemistry; AT2 receptor; AT1 receptor; Endothelin-1; ETA receptor; ETB receptor;

    Sammanfattning : The present thesis is aimed to examine the hypothesis that the degree of vascular inflammation correlates with the expression of vascular endothelin and angiotensin receptors. The receptor changes were studied in subcutaneous resistance arteries in patients with different degrees of ischemic heart disease (IHD). LÄS MER
