  1. 1. Urban greenness and related health effects

    Author : Åsa Persson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : Exposure to urban greenness has been linked to a wide range of health outcomes, including many non-communicable health conditions which are presently among the largest contributors to the global burden of disease, such as cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, as well as mental disorders. Half of the world’s population now lives in urban areas; often affected by health hazards such as pollutants and heat islands, and characterized by low levels of physical activity, inadequate diets, and decreased access to nature.

  2. 2. Induction of the cytoskeletal protein radixin in the adult brain

    Author : Åsa Persson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Rostral migratory stream; stroke; Neural stem cells; microglia; ezrin radixin moesin; Olig2;

    Abstract : Abstract Neural stem and progenitor cells (NSPCs) proliferate throughout life in two regions of the brain, namely the subventricular zone (SVZ) of the lateral ventricles and the subgranular zone of dentate gyrus in the hippocampus. In the adult SVZ, NSPCs give rise to neuroblasts that leave the SVZ for long distance migration along the rostral migratory stream (RMS), on their way to the olfactory bulb where they mature and are integrated in the neural network.

  3. 3. Choosing environmental policy instruments : Case studies of municipal waste policy in Sweden and England

    Author : Åsa Maria Persson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : municipal waste policy; environmental policy instruments; environmental policy; Sweden; England;

    Abstract : European governments have during the last couple of decades shown an interest in new types of environmental policy instruments (EPIs) such as environmental taxes, tradable permit schemes and voluntary approaches, as opposed to relying on traditional forms of regulation. The interest in so-called ‘new’ EPIs (NEPIs) has led many governments to commit both to a more diverse EPI mix and to a policy process characterised by procedural rationality, in terms of considering a wide range ofalternative instruments and assessing them in a systematic and transparent way.

    Abstract : Apatites are a diverse class of phosphate minerals that are important in a great variety of natural and industrial processes. They are, for example, used as raw material in fertiliser production and in the remediation of metal-contaminated soils. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structural and functional studies of streptococcal surface adhesins

    Author : Åsa Nylander; Karina Persson; Maria Selmer; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : The oral cavity is home to an array of microorganisms that are associated with dental plaque. Some Gram-positive bacteria are common inhabitants of the oral cavity and in order to colonize such a unique environment adhesion becomes essential and is accomplish by adhesins expressed on the bacterial surface.
