Energy-dissipating brite adipocytes - a potential tool against obesity and diabetes
01/02/2013 - 31/12/2018
Våra fettvävnader kan delas upp i två typer, brunfettvävnad, som har som funktion att förbränna energi och alstra värme antingen för att hålla kroppen varm eller för att reglera kroppsvikt, samt vitfettvävnad som i stä...

Are important unhealthy metabolic effects of PFOA mediated by brown adipose tissue?
01/01/2013 - 31/12/2015
Ett antal kemiskt framställda substanser har det senaste halva seklet använts i ett stort antal produkter som ofta förekommer i vår vardag: fettavstötande papper att slå in mat i, vallningsmedel till skidor, kosmetika och mycket annat. Det rör...

The physiology of thermogenesis: acute and adaptive processes in brown adipsoe tissue
01/01/2011 - 31/12/2013
Thermogenesis is the use of energy with the purpose of only producing heat, a wasteful process that Nature would normally avoid. Nonetheless, through the process of nonshivering thermogenesis mammals have gained evolutionarily. The purpose of this project is to further our unders...

Molecular dissection of airway maturation in Drosophila
01/01/2010 - 31/12/2012
Oxygen is vital for aerobic respiration and many animals evolved elaborate organs for its efficient transport and delivery to all cells in the body. Like our lungs and blood vessels, the tracheal airways deliver oxygen to all tissues of Drosophila and provide an excellent model s...

Regulators of epithelial wound healing in Drosophila
01/01/2010 - 31/12/2012
Wound healing and tissue repair is a fundamental property of multicellular organisms ranging from sponges to humans. Despite the medical importance of wound regeneration, progress in defining the signaling mechanisms initiating and orchestrating wound responses has been slow due ...

Sympathetic stimulation of glucose uptake in insulin-sensitive tissues
01/01/2009 - 01/01/2012
Obesity is a major inducer of type 2 diabetes and more than 150 million people worldwide suffer from type 2 diabetes. Stress has been proposed as one potential contributor to Type II diabetes but there are surprisingly few studies on this topic. Most attempts to treat type 2 diab...

G-protein coupled receptor signal switching:a novel fundamental function
01/01/2009 - 01/01/2012
Transmission of a signal across the plasma membrane is a fundamental cellular process. G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the largest class of cell surface receptors and are thus important players in this essential task. GPCRs are also the targets for more than 50 percent of...
