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

    Detta är en avhandling från Experimentel medicinsk vetenskap, Lunds Universitet

    Författare :Caroline Sandén; [2009]
    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. The Role of Membrane Trafficking in G Protein-Coupled Receptor Regulation

    Detta är en avhandling från Institutionen för Experimentell Medicinsk Vetenskap, Lunds Universitet

    Författare :Johan Enquist; [2007]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; downregulation; recycling; resensitization; desensitization; GPCR; membrane trafficking;

    Sammanfattning : Movements of a receptor in the plasma membrane and within the cell influence receptor function and physiology. I have investigated the role of such movements, generally known as membrane trafficking, in G protein-coupled receptor regulation. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Signalling and trafficking of the cysteinyl leukotriene receptors in intestinal epithelial cells

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Författare :Ladan Parhamifar; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; trafficking; Cysteinyl leukotriene receptors; inflammation; cytosolic phospholipase A2; colon cancer;

    Sammanfattning : Inflammation is a response to injury or pathogen invasion. A large proportion of the bodie's immune system is centred in the gastrointestinal tract (GI). Prolonged inflammatory conditions of the GI have been suggested to increase the risk for developing colon cancer. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy to Study Plasma Membrane Protein Dynamics

    Detta är en avhandling från Lausanne : EPFL

    Författare :Joachim Piguet; [2010]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fluorescence; microscopy; plasma membrane; membrane proteins; membrane proteins diffusion; single-molecule imaging; single-molecule tracking; pentameric ligand-gated ion channels; nicotinic acetylcholine receptor; serotonin receptor; synapse; neuromuscular junction; post-synaptic scaffold; rapsyn; myopathies; fluorescent proteins; Förster resonance energy transfer; FRET imaging; protein-protein interactions; protein trafficking; photo-activatable proteins; Biologisk fysik; Biological Physics;

    Sammanfattning : Membrane protein dynamics is of great importance for living organisms. The precise localization of proteins composing a synapse on the membrane facing a nerve terminus is essential for proper functioning of the nervous system. In muscle fibers, the nicotinic acetylcholine is densely packed under the motor nerve termini. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Adenosine receptor/dopamine receptor interactions : Molecular and biochemical aspects

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Författare :Maria Torvinen; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adenosine; adenosine deaminase; A; receptor; A2A receptor; cell line; coimmunoprecipitation; confocal microscopy; dopamine; D1 receptor; D2 receptor; D3 receptor; heteromerization; internalisation; radioligand binding;

    Sammanfattning : The dopamine receptors have been shown to be involved in a variety of higher brain functions, such as motor control, cognition and affective states. Agonist and antagonists of dopamine receptors are widely used to treat disorders such as Parkinson's disease and schizophrenia, respectively. LÄS MER
