  1. 1. The Role of Reactive Astrocytes in Brain Ischemia and Neurotrauma

    Författare :Lizhen Li; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; astrocytes; intermediate filaments; GFAP; vimentin; reactive gliosis; brain ischemia; neurotrauma;

    Sammanfattning : Astrocytes are the most abundant cell type in the central nervous system (CNS) and increasing evidence now suggests that they play an active role in various brain functions. Astrocytes are involved in the induction and maintenance of the blood brain barrier, as well as the induction and stabilization of neuronal synapses. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Role of intermediate filaments and expression of GFAP and S-100 in astrocytes

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg

    Författare :Mei Ding; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Astrocytes; Gliosis; Kainic acid; Transgenic mouse; S-100; GFAP; Vimentin; RVD regulatory volume decrease ; Taurine; Glutamine; Ascorbate; Glucose;

    Sammanfattning : Astrocytes participate in a variety of important physiologic and pathologic processes in the central nervous system (CNS). One of the most remarkable characteristics of astrocytes is their vigorous response to CNS injuries. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Ocular function and morphology in humans and rabbits exposed to vigabatrin medication

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Ophthalmology, Lund University

    Författare :Ulrika Kjellström; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; vimentin; PKC-alpha; visual field defects; optical coherence tomography; full-field electroretinography; GABA; vigabatrin;

    Sammanfattning : Vigabatrin is an antiepileptic drug that is known to cause visual field defects and retinal dysfunction measured by full-field electroretinography (ff-ERG). Underlying mechanisms have not yet been elucidated. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Familial occurrence of abdominal aortic aneurysms

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Örjan Norrgård; Umeå universitet.; [1985]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Abdominal aortic aneurysms; familial occurrence; serum lipids and lipoproteins; genetic markers; morphology; collagen types; vimentin; desmin;

    Sammanfattning : The occurrence of clinically diagnosed and/or ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) in the families of 220 patients with AAAs, treated at the Surgical Clinic, University Hospital of Umeå in the northern part of Sweden during the years 1965-82, was studied. A questionnaire concerning the blood relatives was answered by 87/89 patients. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The importance of astroglial cells in ischemia, regeneration and angiogenesis

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg

    Författare :Andrea Lundkvist; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; astrocytes; Müller cells; retina; intermediate filaments; GFAP; vimentin; angiogenesis; VEGF-A; guidance; matrix-metalloprotease;

    Sammanfattning : Astrocytes in the CNS communicate with both neurons and blood vessels. In many CNS pathologies, astrocytes respond by becoming reactive. Whether their performance at this stage is beneficial or detrimental for CNS function is unclear. LÄS MER
