  1. 1. Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy to Study Plasma Membrane Protein Dynamics

    University dissertation from Lausanne : EPFL

    Author : Joachim Piguet; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fluorescence; microscopy; plasma membrane; membrane proteins; membrane proteins diffusion; single-molecule imaging; single-molecule tracking; pentameric ligand-gated ion channels; nicotinic acetylcholine receptor; serotonin receptor; synapse; neuromuscular junction; post-synaptic scaffold; rapsyn; myopathies; fluorescent proteins; Förster resonance energy transfer; FRET imaging; protein-protein interactions; protein trafficking; photo-activatable proteins; Biologisk fysik; Biological Physics;

    Abstract : Membrane protein dynamics is of great importance for living organisms. The precise localization of proteins composing a synapse on the membrane facing a nerve terminus is essential for proper functioning of the nervous system. In muscle fibers, the nicotinic acetylcholine is densely packed under the motor nerve termini. READ MORE

  2. 2. Temporal Modulation in Fluorescence Spectroscopy and Imaging for Biological Applications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Gustav Persson; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fluorescence; spectroscopy; microscopy; modulated excitation; intensity modulation; fluorescence correlation spectroscopy; transient states; molecular kinetics; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis explores the benefits of intensity modulation for the purpose of extending the range of applications of fluorescence spectroscopy and imaging in cellular and molecular biology and medicine.Long-lived transient states of fluorescent molecules can, because of their long lifetimes, be used to detect subtle changes in the microenvironment of the molecule.

  4. 4. Fluorescence Properties of Quantum Dots and Their Utilization in Bioimaging

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Hao Xu; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fluorescence; Microscopy; Bioimaging; Nanomaterial; cytotoxicity; mechanism; Biologisk fysik; Biological Physics;

    Abstract : Quantum dots (QDs), especially colloidal semiconductor QDs, possess properties including high quantum yields, narrow fluorescence spectra, broad absorption and excellent photostability, making them extremely powerful in bioimaging. In this thesis, we studied the fluorescence properties of QDs and attempted multiple ways to boost applications of QDs in bioimaging field. READ MORE

  5. 5. Latex Colloid Dynamics in Complex Dispersions Fluorescence Microscopy Applied to Coating Color Model Systems

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Gunilla Carlsson; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Physical chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Fysikalisk kemi; Kemi; Chemistry; fluorescence microscopy; coating color; colloid; latex; diffusion; Brownian motion; film formation; polymer interaction;

    Abstract : Coating colors are applied to the base paper in order to maximize the performance of the end product. Coating colors are complex colloidal systems, mainly consisting of water, binders, and pigments. To understand the behavior of colloidal suspensions, an understanding of the interactions between its components is essential.. READ MORE
