This review deals with research on the development and differentiation of the neural crest (NC) in amphibians carried out during the past twenty years. First, earlier studies on the migration and differentiation of NC cells in vitro are summarized. These studies include the modes of NC cell migration and their differentiation into chondroblasts,(More)
Migration of neural crest (NC) derived pigment cells is restricted in the white mutant (dd) axolotl embryo (Ambystoma mexicanum). Transplantations between mutant and wild type embryos show that the extracellular matrix (ECM) of the white mutant is unable to support the migration of prospective pigment cells in wild type embryos (Löfberg et al., 1989, Dev.(More)
A 25 residue peptide, Dk-(61-85), derived from the alpha 1 domain of a murine MHC class I molecule (H-2Dk), enhances cellular glucose uptake, prolongs the effect of insulin, and inhibits insulin receptor internalization without affecting insulin binding or dissociation. Full effect of the peptide is obtained at 10-100 microM. The magnitude of the(More)
Detection of mutations in faecal DNA represents a promising, non-invasive approach for detecting colorectal cancers in average-risk populations. One of the first practical applications of this technology involves the examination of microsatellite markers in sporadic cancers with mismatch-repair deficiencies. Since such cancers nearly always occur in the(More)
The skin of the white mutant axolotl larva is pigmented differently from that of the normal dark due to a local inability of the extracellular matrix (ECM) to support subepidermal migration of neural crest-derived pigment cell precursors. In the present study, we have compared the ECM of neural crest migratory pathways of normal dark and white mutant(More)
In Sweden, individuals affected by severe stroke are treated in specialized stroke units. In these units, patients are attended by a multiprofessional team with a focus on care in the acute phase of stroke, rehabilitation phase, and palliative phase. Caring for patients with such a large variety in condition and symptoms might be an extra challenge for the(More)
The differential adsorption heats of oxygen and NO, as well as catalytic oxidation behavior during NO oxidation and NO 2 dissociation reactions over supported Pt-catalysts, were investigated by microcalorimetric measurements. The average heat of adsorption (∆H) of oxygen ranged from 310 kJ/mol at 200 ˝ C to 289 kJ/mol at 400 ˝ C. Over this temperature range(More)
