    The degeneration of midbrain dopaminergic (mDA) neurons accounts for some of the main motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Efforts during the last decades have focused on understanding how mDA neurons are generated ...
  • Origin of life : testing the isotopic resonance hypothesis 

    Xie, Xueshu (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2016-11-09)
    The Miller-Urey (MU) experiment provided evidence supporting the abiogenesis theory, and is considered to be the seminal experiment in the context of origin of life. The MU mixture produced in the experiment is assumed to ...
  • Positional identification and functional analysis of genes regulating autoimmune arthritis 

    Yau, Anthony Chun Yeung (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2016-11-07)
    The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is the most gene-dense and polymorphic region in the human genome with strong associations to many autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, even the ...
  • Exploiting nucleotide metabolism to improve cancer therapy : by targeting dUTPase, dCTPase and NUDT15 

    Hagenkort, Anna (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2016-10-28)
    Synthetic nucleobase- and nucleoside-analogs have stood the test of time and remain a cornerstone in the treatment regimen against various forms of cancer. Due to their resemblance to endogenous nucleotides these ...
  • Neonatal screening in Sweden and disease-causing variants in phenylketonuria, galactosaemia and biotinidase deficiency 

    Ohlsson, Annika (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2016-10-25)
    Phenylketonuria, galactosaemia and biotinidase deficiency were the first three inborn errors of metabolism to be included in the Swedish programme. This thesis describes these conditions with an emphasis on screening ...
  • Neuronal types and their specification dynamics in the autonomic nervous system 

    Furlan, Alessandro (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2016-10-07)
    The autonomic nervous system is formed by a sympathetic and a parasympathetic division that have complementary roles in the maintenance of body homeostasis. Autonomic neurons, also known as visceral motor neurons, are ...
  • Mechanism of enzymes involved in leukotriene C4 biosynthesis 

    Ahmad, H. R. Shabbir (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2016-09-06)
    Cysteinyl leukotrienes (cys-LTs) are potent proinflammatory mediators associated with various diseases including asthma and allergic rhinitis. Leukotriene C4 synthase (LTC4S) and microsomal glutathione transferase 2 ...
  • Putting the pieces together : elucidation of podocyte biology in the homeostasis of the kidney filtration barrier 

    Rodriguez Rivera, Patricia M (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2016-08-25)
    End-stage renal disease (ESRD) is a devastating condition that can only be treated with chronic dialysis or kidney transplantation. ESRD treatment costs account for up to 10% of healthcare budgets in the Western world. ...
  • Cross-tissue regulatory gene networks in coronary atherosclerosis 

    Talukdar, Husain Ahammad (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2016-08-17)
    Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the underlying cause of myocardial infarction and stroke that together are responsible for nearly 30% of all global deaths. CAD is a common complex disease caused by the interactions of ...
  • Investigation of T cell driven arthritis induced by mannan in ZAP70 mutated SKG mice 

    Guérard, Simon (Inst för medicinsk biokemi och biofysik / Dept of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2016-08-10)
