Adipose tissue-derived serum amyloid A and adipose tissue macrophages in metabolic disease
Obesity is associated with a low-grade chronic inflammation with increased levels of proinflammatory markers in the circulation and local inflammation in the adipose tissue. In this thesis, two aspects of obesity-related ...
Aspects of Plasminiogen Activator Inhibitor 1 in Metabolic Syndrome
Plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 (PAI-1) is the main inhibitor of the fibrinolytic system and binds irreversibly to tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA), and thereby inhibits the protective action of t-PA against ...
Identification and imaging of lipids in tissues using TOF-SIMS
Introduction: Normal lipid metabolism in the adipose tissue, skeletal muscle and aortic wall is important for the physiological function of these tissues. Dyslipidemia that is often associated with intake of high energy ...
