  1. 1. Limiting factors in ATP synthesis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Tatiana Kramarova; Stockholms universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ATP synthase; biosynthesis; assembly; uncoupling proteins; ATP ADP carrier; ODONTOLOGY Physiology; ODONTOLOGI Fysiologi;

    Abstract : The aim of the present study was to investigate the biosynthesis of the ATP synthase in various tissues, and to test hypotheses about possible models of activation of several mitochondrial proteins, the ATP/ADP translocase and UCPs, that could utilize the proton gradient, thus bypassing the ATP synthase. We have examined the role of the expression of the P1 isoform of the c-Fo subunit in the biogenesis of ATP synthase in brown adipose tissue. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nucleotide-binding Proteins in the Plant Thylakoid Membrane

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Sophie Heurtel Thuswaldner; Cornelia Spetea Wiklund; Bengt Persson; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; plant; Arabidopsis; photosynthesis; thylakoid membrane; nucleotide-binding; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Life on Earth is dependent on the oxygen produced through photosynthesis. The thylakoid membrane is the site for the light-driven reactions of photosynthesis, which oxidize water and supply energy in the form of ATP, mainly for carbon fixation. The utilization of ATP in the lumenal space of the thylakoid has not been considered in the past. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular Mechanisms Optimizing Photosynthesis during High Light Stress in Plants

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Lan Yin; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arabidopsis; light stress; photosynthesis; chloroplast;

    Abstract : Oxygenic photosynthesis is the process by which plants, algae and cyanobacteria use solar energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into molecular oxygen and carbohydrates. Photosynthesis sustains life on Earth since it provides not only energy for individual growth, but also represents the starting point of the food chain for most living organisms. READ MORE

  4. 4. Temporal monitoring of intracellular Ca2+ signaling and origins of Ca2+ oscillations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Dominic-Luc Webb; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis examined parameters influencing stimulated cytoplasmic free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) oscillations in hepatocytes and pancreatic beta-cells. Hepatic glucose output is regulated in part by hormones such as vasopressin that act through [Ca 2+]i oscillations. READ MORE
