  1. 1. Perspectives on the Biological Role of Human Prostasomes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lena Carlsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Prostasomes; cryopreservation; human spermatozoa; sperm motility; anti- prostasome antibodies; PC-3 cells; Bacillus megaterium; antibacterial; antisperm antibodies; complement activation; sperm agglutination; infertility; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : Prostasomes are extracellularly occurring organelles which are secreted in human semen by the prostate gland. Prostasomes have several known biological activities, but their physiological function is still unclear. In this thesis some new aspects were studied on the biological role of the prostasomes.

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Ingrid Svensson; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biotechnology; Spodoptera frugiperda Sf9; insect cell cultures; conditioned medium; cell cycle phase dynamics; proteolytic activity; antibacterial activity; recombinant protein production; Bioteknik; TECHNOLOGY Bioengineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Bioteknik;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to better understand the role of conditioned medium (CM) in Spodoptera frugiperda Sf9 insect cell proliferation and recombinant protein production using the baculovirus expression system.CM was found to stimulate cell proliferation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of antimicrobial peptides : Methodological aspects, design, synthesis and evaluation of a new class of antimicrobial peptides

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Neurochemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Marie Danielsson; Stockholms universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Abstract : A new protective group for the indole nitrogen of the amino acid tryptophan, the Boc-sarcosinoyl-sarcosinolyl (Boc-Sar-Sar) is described. This protective group shows good stability to the reaction conditions used in solid phase peptide synthesis and can be incorporated into the peptide as Fmoc-Trp(Boc-Sar-Sar)-OH. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biogas Production from Citrus Wastes and Chicken Feather Pretreatment and Co-digestion

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Gergely Forgács; Högskolan i Borås.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning; anaerobic digestion; pretreatments; co-digestion; economic analyses; citrus wastes; feather; Energi; material;

    Abstract : Anaerobic digestion is a sustainable and economically feasible waste management technology, which lowers the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs), decreases the soil and water pollution, and reduces the dependence on fossil fuels. The present thesis investigates the anaerobic digestion of waste from food-processing industries, including citrus wastes (CWs) from juice processing and chicken feather from poultry slaughterhouses.

  5. 5. Relish and the Regulation of Antimicrobial Peptides in Drosophila melanogaster

    University dissertation from Stockholm : The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Marika Hedengren Olcott; Stockholms universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Drosophila immunity; NF-kappaB; Relish; antimicrobial peptides; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Developmental biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Utvecklingsbiologi;

    Abstract : The fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster has been a powerful model system in which to study the immune response. When microorganisms breach the mechanical barrier of the insect, phagocytosing cells and a battery of induced antimicrobial molecules rapidly attack them. These antimicrobial peptides can reach micromolar concentrations within a few hours. READ MORE
