  1. 1. Beta Camera: Development and applications

    Author : Kaj Ljunggren; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Klinisk fysiologi; radiologi; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering; medical instrumentation; tomography; radiology; Clinical physics; microchannel plate; radionuclides; scintillator; autoradiography; Beta Camera;

    Abstract : A new detector for on-line digital detection of charged particles (beta-particles, conversion electrons and alpha-particles) from thin samples for rapid autoradiography has been developed; the Beta Camera. The device consists of a photon-sensitive detector (image photon detector, IPD); the main component of which is a microchannel plate. READ MORE

  2. 2. Electrophoretic focusing in microchannels combined with mass spectrometry : Applications on amyloid beta peptides

    Author : Saara Mikkonen; Åsa Emmer; Johan Jacksén; Tapio Kotiaho; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; amyloid beta; computer simulation; electrophoresis; electrospray ionization; isoelectric focusing; isotachophoresis; MALDI; mass spectrometry; microchannel; microchip; nano-electrospray ionization; preconcentration; separation; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Analysis of low-abundance components in small samples remains a challenge within bioanalytical chemistry, and new techniques for sample pretreatments followed by sensitive and informative detection are required. In this thesis, procedures for preconcentration and separation of proteins and peptides in open microchannels fabricated on silicon microchips are presented. READ MORE

  3. 3. Haemophilus influenzae – typing, epidemiology and beta-lactam resistance

    Author : Viktor Månsson; Malmö Klinisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; benzylpenicillin; beta-lactam resistance; beta-lactams; BLNAR; capsule typing; clonal; Haemophiilus influenzae; Hib; MALDI-TOF MS; MLST; NTHi; serotyping; virulence; epidemiology;

    Abstract : Haemophilus influenzae is a common cause of respiratory tract infections such as acute otitis media (AOM), exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and pneumonia. The species is subdivided into encapsulated and non-encapsulated strains, designated type a-f and nontypeable H. influenzae (NTHi), respectively. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies of sulfatide expression in relation to beta cell function

    Author : Maria K. Blomqvist; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : sulfatide; glycosphingolipid; insulin; beta cell; diabetes mellitus; animal models; ; beta cell line;

    Abstract : Previous studies have shown that the glycosphingolipid sulfatide (3´-sulfogalactosyl-ceramide) is present and functionally involved in pancreatic beta cells. In these cells, sulfatide is synthesised as two major isoforms, C16:0 and C24:0 sulfatide, with different length of the fatty acid chain of the ceramide moiety. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cellular responses to amyloid-beta protofibrils : Focus on astrocytes, extracellular vesicles and antibody treatment

    Author : Elisabeth Nikitidou; Anna Erlandsson; Martin Ingelsson; Gunnar K. Gouras; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Alzheimer’s disease; Amyloid-beta; Protofibrils; Astrocytes; Extracellular vesicles; Antibody; Neurons; Degradation; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Knowledge about the cellular mechanisms behind the initiation and propagation of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is limited. Decades of research have focused on neuronal abnormalities in AD, but recently more attention has been given to the glial cells. READ MORE
