    Sammanfattning : The progressive process of tumour invasion and generation of metastases is the primary cause of death for most patients with cancer. Some of the regulatory components of this progressive process are adhesion, migration, and proteolysis. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Effects of Biomechanical Stress on Gene Regulation in Vascular Cells

    Författare :Maria Carlström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :shear stress; intraluminal pressure; endothelium; gene expression; DNA microarray; real-time RT-PCR; reference genes; smooth muscle cells; P2 receptors; TNF-alpha; urokinase-type plasminogen activator;

    Sammanfattning : The vascular vessel wall is constantly exposed to biomechanical forces, such as shear and tensile stress. Biomechanical forces are important for several physiological and pathological processes and have been shown to regulate a number of fundamental vascular functions, such as vascular tone and remodeling processes.

  3. 3. Development of a New Biomechanical ex vivo Perfusion System - Studies on effects of biomechanical and inflammatory stress on hemostatic genes in human vascular endothelium

    Författare :Niklas Bergh; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :ex vivo perfusion system; biomechanical; endothelium; shear stress; tensile stress; pulsatile; TNF-α; JNK; hemostatic genes;

    Sammanfattning : The vascular endothelium is a multifunctional interface constantly exposed to biomechanical forces such as shear and tensile stress. Biomechanical stress is involved in the pathophysiological process of the vessel wall and thus affects vascular remodeling, atherosclerosis and thrombogenesis. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Bacterial interaction with the fibrinolytic system and extracellular matrix

    Författare :Thomas Herrman Eberhard; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; plasminogen; extracellular matrix; basement membrane; virulence factors; fibronectin; vitronectin; collagen; Haemophilus influenzae Neisseria meningitidis Streptococcus pneumoniae;

    Sammanfattning : Bacterial infection of host organisms is a state of complex interaction between the parasite and the host. Two critical steps in the infectious process are: Adhesion to the epithelial surfaces and penetration of tissue barriers to gain entrance to tissues and into the circulation. These two steps have been the subjects of this thesis. LÄS MER
