Motoneurons are important for regulating the function and properties of skeletal muscle. In the present study high-density oligonucleotide arrays have been used to compare gene expression in innervated and six-days denervated NMRI mouse skeletal muscle. To avoid looking at genes mainly participating in the process of atrophy, both hind-limb muscles(More)
The nogo gene encodes at least three different proteins, which share a high C-terminal homology with other members of the Reticulon family. Nogo (Reticulon 4) expression has been studied in innervated and denervated mouse hind-limb and hemidiaphragm muscles. A common Nogo A, B, and C probe hybridized to three transcripts, in accordance with human and rat(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate awareness among nurses regarding their new role as reporters of adverse drug reactions in Sweden and factors that may influence reporting by nurses. METHODS In 2007, all nurses were included in the adverse drug reaction reporting scheme in Sweden. A questionnaire was sent to 753 randomly selected(More)
Semaphorins are secreted or transmembrane proteins important for axonal guidance and for the structuring of neuronal systems. Semaphorin 6C, a transmembrane Semaphorin, has growth cone collapsing activity and is expressed in adult skeletal muscle. In the present study the expression of Semaphorin 6C mRNA and immunoreactivity has been compared in innervated(More)
BACKGROUND p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase has been implicated in both skeletal muscle atrophy and hypertrophy. T317 phosphorylation of the p38 substrate mitogen-activated protein kinase-activated protein kinase 2 (MK2) correlates with muscle weight in atrophic and hypertrophic denervated muscle and may influence the nuclear and cytoplasmic(More)
BACKGROUND The present study examines the hypothesis that Akt (protein kinase B)/mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) signaling is increased in hypertrophic and decreased in atrophic denervated muscle. Protein expression and phosphorylation of Akt1, Akt2, glycogen synthase kinase-3beta (GSK-3beta), eukaryotic initiation factor 4E binding protein 1 (4EBP1),(More)
The role of omega-3 fatty acids in the treatment of schizophrenia through modification of membrane phospholipids Abstract Ever since the emergence of the hypothesis that linked the aetiology of schizophrenia with abnormal membrane phospholipids composition, an increasing number of evidences have suggested reduced membrane polyunsaturated fatty acids in(More)
Depression is the fourth most common disease in the world with a lifetime prevalence of 24% women and 15% men. Depression can affect all ages, i.e. children, adolescents, adults and the elderly and it is as costly as heart disease. The affected individual acts poorly in daily activities such as school, work and in social settings. Additionally, there is(More)
