  2. 2. Linkage maps in studies of genetic variation - examples from Beta vulgaris

    University dissertation from Department of Genetics, Lund University

    Author : Thomas Kraft; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cytogenetics; Genetics; Beta vulgaris; Linkage maps; genetic variation; Genetik; cytogenetik;

    Abstract : Today, most studies of genetic variation utilise molecular markers, making it possible to detect variation at the DNA level. This has greatly facilitated studies of genetic variation in population and evolutionary genetics, systematics and transmission genetics. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mechanisms and Dynamics of Carbapenem Resistance in Escherichia coli

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marlen Adler; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; carbapenem; antibiotic resistance; fitness cost; ESBLs; penicillin-binding proteins; gene amplification;

    Abstract : The emergence of extended spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) producing Enterobacteriaceae worldwide has led to an increased use of carbapenems and may drive the development of carbapenem resistance. Existing mechanisms are mainly due to acquired carbapenemases or the combination of ESBL-production and reduced outer membrane permeability. READ MORE

  4. 4. Interactions of satellite phage P4 with its helpers : P2 and WΦ phages

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Liu Tao; Stockholms universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Genetics; genetik;

    Abstract : Bacteriophage P4 is a defective phage that needs a helper phage to grow lytically, since it lacks structural genes and genes encoding host cell lysis functions. P4 has the capacity to derepress the unrelated prophage P2, or its relatives after infection, thereby getting access to the late functions of the helper. READ MORE

  5. 5. Type 2 Diabetes Genes Contributing to Insulin Secretion Defects

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Charlotte Granhall; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; sekretion; Endokrinologi; exocytosis; GK rat; NIDDM1I; genetics; gene expression; quantitative trait analysis; Sorcs1; Adra2a; Endocrinology; diabetology; insulin secretion; diabetologi; secreting systems; Type 2 diabetes;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes is caused by a combination of environmental and inherited factors influencing the progression of insulin resistance and impaired insulin secretion leading to chronically elevated blood glucose levels. The aim of this thesis was to functionally and genetically characterise the species-conserved diabetes locus Niddm1i of the GK rat encoding hyperglycaemia and defect insulin secretion. READ MORE
