  1. 1. Thyroid function and iodine nutrition in women during pregnancy and in their neonates : Studies among Sudanese subjects

    Författare :Aboud Eltom; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstetrics and gynaecology; odine; goitre; thyroid function; thyroglobulin; pregnancy; labour; newborns; Sweden; Sudan; Obstetrik och kvinnosjukdomar; Obstetrics and women s diseases; Obstetrik och kvinnosjukdomar; pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Sammanfattning : The studies described in this thesis were carried out in Sudan and Sweden. Pregnant Sudanese women, who had a significantly lower urinary iodine concentration than their Swedish counterparts, showed significantly lower thyrotrophin (TSH) levels in weeks 36-39 of pregnancy and higher free thyroxine (FT4) levels both in weeks 20-24 and 36-39 of pregnancy than Swedish pregnant women.

  2. 2. Regulation of apoptosis in the thyroid epithelium

    Författare :Abeba Demelash; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Thyroid; Apoptosis; Caspase; Calpain; Hydrogen peroxide; TGF-beta; Staurosporine; Selenium; Cytochrome c;

    Sammanfattning : Apoptosis or programmed cell death allows the multicellular organism to remove cells that are in excess or potentially dangerous. Apoptosis has to be strictly controlled, yet inappropriately activated or suppressed apoptototic may contribute to a variety of diseases, including cancer, autoimmune disorders and neurodegenerative conditions.

  3. 3. Regulation of E-cadherin mediated adhesion in thyroid epithelial cells

    Författare :Fredrik Larsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :thyroid; adherens junction; E-cadherin; thyrotropin; cAMP; PKA; Epac; IQGAP;

    Sammanfattning : Cell adhesion is one of multicellular organisms most fundamental features. Cells connect to each other by transmembrane proteins arranged in junction complexes. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Classical cadherins and the thyroid. Studies on organ development and epithelial differentiation

    Författare :Mats Grände; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Thyroid; cadherin; TGF-; EGF; MEK; development; EMT;

    Sammanfattning : The cadherins are key regulators of tissue patterning and organ formation. E-cadherin is important for cell-cell adhesion and promotes epithelial morphogenesis and maintenance of the epithelial phenotype. LÄS MER
