  1. 1. Mechanisms of Tissue Vascularization

    Författare :Witold Kilarski; Pär Gerwins; Lena Claesson-Welsh; Andreas Bikfalvi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pathology; vascularization; angiogenesis; granulation tissue; myofibroblast; wound healing; Patologi; Pathology; Patologi;

    Sammanfattning : Tissue neovascularization in postnatal life occurs during post-traumatic tissue healing, neoplastic growth and in the endometrium during the reproductive cycle of females. Although embryonic angiogenesis has been intensively studied, far less is known about tissue revascularization and vessel remodeling in adults due to methodological difficulties. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Auxiliary Cells for the Vascularization and Function of Endogenous and Transplanted Islets of Langerhans

    Författare :Liza Grapensparr; Per-Ola Carlsson; Leif Jansson; Mia Phillipson; Aileen King; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Islets of Langerhans; beta cells; diabetes; transplantation; vascularization; Schwann cells; endothelial progenitor cells; neural crest stem cells; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Sammanfattning : Type 1 diabetes develops through the progressive destruction of the insulin-producing beta-cells. Regeneration or replacement of beta-cells is therefore needed to restore normal glucose homeostasis. Presently, normoglycemia can be achieved by the transplantation of whole pancreas or isolated islets of Langerhans. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The Roles of Growth Factor Interactions and Mechanical Tension in Angiogenesis

    Författare :Ludvig Petersson; Pär Gerwins; Filip Farnebo; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :angiogenesis; myofibroblast; wound healing; VEGF; FGF; PDGF; endocan; endothelial cell; vascularization; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicin; Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels from preexisting ones through creation of new vessel branch points by sprouting or vessel splitting, is an important part of tissue growth in both physiological processes like wound healing and pathological conditions such as cancer. Growth factors like VEGF-A, FGF-2 and PDGF-BB are involved in both types of angiogenesis. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Neuropilin-1 regulation of tumor vascularization and growth

    Författare :Eric Morin; Lena Claesson-Welsh; Hellmut Augustin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Angiogenesis; Neuropilin-1; VEGFR2; tumor biology; pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma; renal cell carcinoma; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels from existing ones, is dysregulated during tumor progression as a result of chronic hypoxia and inflammation. Such alterations lead to a lack of vessel hierarchy, and the formation of poorly perfused, leaky and blunt-ended vessels, contributing to disease progression. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Hypoxia-Inducible Factors in Tumor Cell Differentiation and Tumor Vascularization

    Författare :Alexander Pietras; Institutionen för translationell medicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HIF-2alpha; cancer; notch; angiogenesis; tumor-initiating cells; hypoxia; neuroblastoma; differentiation;

    Sammanfattning : Mammalian cells, including tumor cells, adapt to hypoxia via stabilization of two transcription factors - Hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1alpha and HIF-2alpha. Among other consequences, hypoxia is a main driving force behind angiogenesis. LÄS MER
