  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. ATP Dynamics in Pancreatic α- and β-cells

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jia Li; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ATP; Ca2 ; β-cell; α-cell; SERCA; SOCE; muscarinic receptor; insulin secretion; glucagon secretion; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Glucose metabolism in pancreatic α- and β-cells is believed to regulate secretion of glucagon and insulin, respectively. In β-cells, ATP links glucose metabolism to electrical activity and insulin secretion. READ MORE

  3. 3. Regulation of proton-coupled electron transfer in cytochrome c oxidase The role of membrane potential, proton pathways and ATP

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm university

    Author : Markus Björck; Stockholms universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cytochrome c oxidase; charge transfer; membrane potential; membrane protein; mitochondria; ATP; proton pump; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Cytochrome c oxidase (CytcO) is the final electron acceptor of the respiratory chain. In this chain a current of electrons, derived from degradation of nutrients, along with protons, are used to reduce oxygen to water. The reaction is exergonic and the excess energy is used to pump protons across the membrane. READ MORE

  4. 4. Nature of Large Vesicle Exocytosis in Pancreatic β-cells: Release of ATP and GABA

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Jovita Karanauskaite; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ATP; LDCV; Insulin; exocytosis; Compound Exocytosis; Calcium;

    Abstract : Several high resolution electrophysiological techniques such as measurements of cell membrane capacitance and amperometry are used to detect exocytotic events. A novel method was developed in this study based on the expression of P2X2 receptor channel in secreting cells. READ MORE

  5. 5. Enterostatin - target proteins and intracellular mechanisms. Function in food intake and energy metabolism

    University dissertation from Karin Berger, BMC B11, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Karin Berger; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ATP; energy metabolism; insulin; uncoupling protein; beta-casomorphin; opiate; SK-N-MC; INS-1; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; fat intake; F1F0-ATP synthase; appetite; enterostatin; satiety; obesity;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish De flesta människor bibehåller en relativt konstant kroppsvikt genom livet trots att mängden mat och motion varierar från dag till dag. En konstant kroppsvikt betyder att energiintag (mat och dryck) och energiutgifter (värme och rörelse) i genomsnitt är lika stora, d.v.s. READ MORE
