  1. 1. Partitioning of Drugs and Lignin Precursor Models into Artificial Membranes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elisabet Boija; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Biochemistry; Bilayer disk; Capillary electrophoresis; Detergent; Drug; Electrostatic interaction; Hydrophobic interaction; Immobilized liposome chromatography; Lignin; Lignin precursor model; Liposome; Membrane model; Octanol water partitioning; Partitioning; Phospholipid; Phospholipid bilayer; Sterol; Biokemi;

    Abstract : The main aim of this thesis was to characterize membrane-solute interactions using artificial membranes in immobilized liposome chromatography or capillary electrophoresis. The partitioning of a solute into a cell membrane is an essential step in diffusion across the membrane. READ MORE

  2. 2. Phytosterols. Effect of intake on cholesterol absorption and colorectal cancer risk

    University dissertation from Göteborg

  5. 5. Dissecting sterol function during clathrin-dependent endocytosis and cytokinesis in Arabidopsis thaliana

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Márcia Frescatada-Rosa; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arabidopsis; membrane; sterols; cytokinesis; KNOLLE; endocytosis; clathrin; DRP1A; miljömedicinsk utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental Biology; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; molekylär cellbiologi; Molecular Cellbiology;

    Abstract : Sterols are lipid components of eukaryotic membranes. Alterations of membrane sterol composition perturb the execution of cell division, which in diverse eukaryotes can have severe consequences for development of the organism. Partitioning of the cytoplasm during cell division occurs at the final stage of cell division named cytokinesis. READ MORE
