  1. 1. Gene therapy for epilepsy: resculpturing synaptic transmission with neuropeptides

    Författare :Andreas Toft Sörensen; Experimentell Epilepsi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LTP; synaptic plasticity; synaptic transmission; electrophysiology; Y5 receptor; Y2 receptor; neuropeptide Y NPY ; hippocampus; gene therapy; epilepsy; memory; activity-dependent release; volume transmission;

    Sammanfattning : Intractable seizures and lack of effective antiepileptic drugs (AED) are severe and common conditions affecting many patients with epilepsy. Thus, there is an urgent need to develop new therapies in epilepsy. The search for novel treatments has identified several neuropeptide systems as potential targets for future therapeutic interventions. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Defining the genetics of systemic autoimmunity in mouse models of lupus

    Författare :Katarina Haraldsson; Kristina Lejon; Dwight Kono; Chandra Mohan; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SLE; susceptibility; HgIA; genome-wide mapping; Lbw2; Lmb1-4; suppressing gene; Immunology; Immunologi;

    Sammanfattning : Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic multi-organ autoimmune disease considered a prototype for autoantibody and immune complex-mediated tissue injury. Although autoantibodies against a wide diversity of self-antigens are characteristically found in this disease, an important hallmark is the presence of autoantibodies to nuclear antigens. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Regulation of HPV16 Early Gene Expression

    Författare :Yunji Zheng; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []

    Sammanfattning : Human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV16) is the most common high-risk type and isassociated with more than 50% cervical cancer cases as well as a number of headand neck cancer cases. The life cycle of HPV16 is strictly linked to celldifferentiation in the squamous epithelium with expression of the HPV16 earlygenes. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Advancing gene therapy for epilepsy. Translational pre-clinical studies with neuropeptide Y and glial cell-line derived neurotrophic factor

    Författare :Esbjörn Melin; Epilepsicentrum; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epilepsy; Gene Therapy; neuropeptide Y NPY ; Y2 receptor; GDNF; Encapsulated cell biodelivery; seizure; In-vivo;

    Sammanfattning : Epilepsy is a neurological disorder, affecting approximately 1% of the population. The high rate of drug-resistance in epilepsy in general (30%), and temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) in particular, pose a serious clinical problem. Thus, novel treatments for drug-resistant epilepsy is highly warranted. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Regulation of cellular growth and identification of stromal gene signatures in breast cancer

    Författare :Sofia Winslow; Avdelningen för translationell cancerforskning; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Breast cancer; cellular stress; proliferation; PKCα; G3BP; PMP22; miR-34c; gene expression profiles; stroma;

    Sammanfattning : Normal tissue is tightly controlled to keep a balance between reproduction and elimination of cells. In cancer, these regulated processes are disrupted, resulting in uncontrolled cell growth. Regulation of RNA stability and turnover is important to maintain cellular homeostasis and can be controlled by various mechanisms. LÄS MER
