  1. 1. On the importance of inflammation for personality traits and psychiatric morbidity

    Författare :Petra Suchankova; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; inflammation; C-reactive protein; complement factor H; S100B; receptor for advanced glycation end products; polymorphism; gene expression; personality traits; suicidal behaviour; schizophrenia; depression; Flinders sensitive line;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Pro-inflammatory mediators have been implicated in processes that could be both beneficial and toxic to cells in the brain. On the one hand balanced levels of these mediators favour e.g. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The inflammatory and immunogenic properties of the receptor for advanced glycation end products and its ligand, high mobility group box chromosomal protein 1

    Författare :Rille Pullerits; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :HMGB1; sRAGE; rheumatoid arthritis; inflammation; cytokines;

    Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic inflammatory joint disease, the pathogenesis of which is complex, involving a wide range of molecules. High mobility group box chromosomal protein 1 (HMGB1) is a nuclear protein recently recognised as a pro-inflammatory cytokine which levels are increased in RA patients. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Teratogenic Predisposition in Diabetic Rat Pregnancy

    Författare :Andreas Ejdesjö; Ulf J Eriksson; Parri Wentzel; Niklas Nordquist; Gernot Desoye; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetes; malformations; teratogenic; advanced glycation end products; AGE; RAGE; oxidative stress; ROS; gene expression; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Pre-gestational diabetes increases the risk of congenital malformation in the offspring and both morbidity and mortality in the diabetic mother and her offspring. During pregnancy, high glucose levels act as a teratogen through several cellular and biochemical pathways and increased production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) has a central role in diabetic embryopathy.

  4. 4. Psoriasin For Better or for Worse in Sickness and in Health : The Role of Psoriasin in Angiogenesis and Differentation of Epithelial Cells

    Författare :Jenny Vegfors; Charlotta Enerbäck; Anna-Karin Ekman; Maria Carlström; Ingemar Rundquist; Enikö Pivarcsi Sonkoly; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Psoriasin (S100A7), a member of the S100 family of calcium-binding proteins, is highly expressed in high-grade ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and in the benign hyper-proliferative skin disorder psoriasis. Both breast cancer and psoriasis are diseases which are characterized by hyperproliferation and a disturbed differentiation of the epithelial cells as well as a pronounced angiogenesis. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Nutritional effects of barley products — Mechanisms of action in the intestinal tract

    Författare :Yadong Zhong; Kemicentrum Centrum för preventiv livsmedelsforskning; []
    Nyckelord :dietary fibre; malting; probiotics; high-fat diets; short-chain fatty acids; gut microbiota; low-grade inflammation; gene expression; Barley;

    Sammanfattning : Barley is one of the most important crops in the world. Although it is mainly used as the raw material for the production of beer and animal feed, it has recently attracted interest from nutritionists and consumers, due to its high content of dietary fibre, especially β-glucan, and its relation to various positive health effects.
