  1. 1. Structure and function of the HDL receptor SR-BI : scavenger receptor class B type I

    Författare :Magnus S.C. Johnson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :SR-BI; HDL; Cholesterol; Scavenger receptor; Apoptosis; Ovary; Gallbladder; Peroxisome;

    Sammanfattning : Low plasma levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) are well-recognized risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The uptake and degradation of LDL cholesterol have been characterized in detail at the molecular level. Less is known about the metabolism and cellular uptake of HDL cholesterol. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Regulation of epithelial morphogenesis in Drosophila by the Emp scavenger receptor

    Författare :Ana Sofia Pinheiro; Christos Samakovlis; Sofia Araújo; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Emp; scavenger receptor; CD36; cytoskeleton; Src kinase; Diap; DrICE; Hipo Yki; endocytosis; Drosophila; airways; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Sammanfattning : The respiratory system of Drosophila melanogaster, the trachea, is widely used as a model system to study the development of branched tubular organs. Airway maturation in Drosophila entails a series of sequential events: first, a massive apical secretion of luminal proteins initiates diametric tube expansion, second an endocytic wave removes luminal proteins and finally liquid clearance and gas filling converts the nascent epithelial tubes to a functional respiratory organ.

  3. 3. Structure and biological properties of scavenger receptor MARCO

    Författare :Annika Brännström; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Macrophages are monocyte-derived cells that play an important role in the innate immune response against invading pathogens. These cells express several host defense receptors that can be divided into two classes; those dependent on opsonizing components for recognition of pathogens, and those that can recognize pathogens directly, pattern recognition receptors (PRRs).

  4. 4. Role of macrophage receptor MARCO in host defense

    Författare :Marko Sankala; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MARCO; innate immunity; scavenger receptor.;

    Sammanfattning : Innate immunity, the first line of defense against infectious microorganisms, appeared early in evolution. Innate immunity relies on specialized cells such as macrophages that are the first to encounter pathogens during infection. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Studies on receptors for modified LDL in human monocytes and macrophages : a link between diabetes and atherosclerosis?

    Författare :Linda Svensson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atherosclerosis; diabetes CD14; CD36; CD64; fatty acid; flow cytometry; macrophage; monocyte; scavenger receptor;

    Sammanfattning : Type 2 diabetes increases the risk for cardiovascular disease three- to fourfold. Because of the rise in diabetes prevalence there is a need for a better understanding of the link between diabetes and atherosclerosis. LÄS MER
