  1. 1. Staphylococcal surface display in directed evolution

    Författare :Nina Kronqvist; Stefan Ståhl; Mats A. A. Persson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; affibody; combinatorial library; directed evoluation; Gram-positive bacteria. protein engineering; Bioengineering; Bioteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Engineered affinity proteins have together with naturally derived antibodies becomeindispensable tools in many areas of life-science and with the increasing number ofapplications, the need for high-throughput methods for generation of such different affinityproteins is evident. Today, combinatorial protein engineering is the most successful strategy toisolate novel non-immunoglobulin affinity proteins. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Tumor necrosis factor-a in atherosclerosis

    Författare :Stefan Jovinge; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :atherosclerosis; oxidized low-density lipoprotein; monocytes; tumor necrosis factor-a; cytokinesis; ets-l; matrix metalloproteinases; apoptosis; glucose metabolism; insulin resistance; myocardial infarction;

    Sammanfattning : The presence of inflammatory cells is prominent at all phases of the atherosclerotic process leaving no doubt that the inflammation is of central importance in atherosclerosis. The recruitment of inflammatory cells into the vessel wall is therefore a key event in early lesion formation. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Hormonal regulation of liver and tumor growth

    Författare :Ville Wallenius; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Liver; cytokine; interleukin-6; tumor necrosis factor; primary liver growth promoter; cyproterone acetate; nafenopin; hepatocyte growth factor; HGF receptor; tumor; sarcoma; N-terminal; truncated;

    Sammanfattning : The aims of this thesis were to investigate the regulatory functions of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor-a (TNF-a) on liver growth, and the importance of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and the HGF receptor (Met) for growth of mesenchyme-derived tumors. The studies on different types of liver growth, measured as weight, DNA and protein content, and DNA synthesis, were performed on mice lacking the IL-6 or the TNF receptor-1 gene back-crossed to the C57bl/6 strain.

  4. 4. Targeting the prostate tumor microenvironment and vasculature : the role of castration, tumor-associated macrophages and pigment epithelium-derived factor

    Författare :Sofia Halin; Anders Bergh; Pernilla Wikström; Stina Rudolfsson; Carl-Henrik Heldin; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prostate cancer; angiogenesis; castration therapy; microenvironment; stroma; tumor-associated macrophages; pigment epithelium-derived factor; PEDF; vasculature; Pathology; Patologi; patologi; Pathology;

    Sammanfattning : BACKGROUND: Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among Swedish men. For patients with metastatic prostate cancer the standard therapy is castration, a treatment that initially provides symptomatic relief but unfortunately is not curative. New therapeutic targets for advanced prostate cancer are therefore needed. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha as a target cytokine in vascular disease

    Författare :Lena Brånén; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; apoptosis; cell replication; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet; spindle-shaped; epithelioid; smooth muscle cells; periadventitial cuff injury; sTNF-R1; bone marrow transplantation; chimeric fusion protein; atherogenic diet; ApoE; TNF-a; genetically altered mice; en face preparation; atherosclerosis; neointimal hyperplasia;

    Sammanfattning : Inflammation plays an important role in atherosclerosis. One of the most potent pro-inflammatory cytokines is tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a), a cytokine identified to have a pathogenic role in chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA). LÄS MER
