Using functional genetics to identify components of cancer relevant signaling pathways

Signaling pathways have pivotal roles in the cell's physiology. They relay information from the cell's outside to the cell's interior and vice versa. This way cells can dynamically react to changing conditions in the extracellular milieu, communicate with other cells and make cell fate decisions like proliferation, cell growth, differentiation, apoptosis and migration...

Vascular Effects of Sodium and Potassium Intake

Elevated blood pressure is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, which is the leading cause of death. Dietary minerals, in particular sodium and potassium, play an important role in blood pressure regulation. While adverse effects of sodium and beneficial effects of potassium on blood pressure have repeatedly been shown in human intervention studies, less is known about other vascular effects of these dietary minerals that could influence cardiovascular disease risk. ­Therefore, we investigated the blood pressure effects of sodium and potassium intake in healthy humans in a broader (patho)physiological context, focusing also on endothelial function, arterial stiffness, fluid regulation and heart rate...

Vascular Risk Of Lipid Genotype And Phenotype In Patients With Arterial Disease

The first research into plasma lipid levels dates back to the 18th century. Albrecht von Haller described aorta plaques in 1755 and noted that a yellow mush effused between the muscular fibre and the intima of the vascular wall. Cholesterol was given its name in 1816, and was subsequently shown to be present in blood and in the atherosclerotic plaques...
