  1. 1. Borderline psychopathology and the defense mechanism test

    Author : Elisabet Sundbom; Bengt-Åke Armelius; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Defense Mechanism Test; defense mechanisms; percept-genetics; Structural Interview; Borderline Personality Organization; Borderline Personality Disorder; Principal Component Analysis; PLS-discriminant analysis;

    Abstract : The main purpose of the present studies has been to develop the Defense Mechanism Test (DM1) for clinical assessment of severe psychopathology with the focus on the concept of Borderline Personality Organization (BPO) according to Kemberg. By relating the DMT and the Structural Interview to each other, the concurrent validity of the concept of Personality Organization (PO) for psychiatric inpatients has been investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Defense-peptides against mycobacteria

    Author : Charlotte M A Linde; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Antimicrobial peptides; NK-lysin; granulysin; PR-39; Mycobacterium;

    Abstract : Several members of the genus Mycobacterium can cause serious infections in both man and animal. One of the world's most serious infectious diseases, tuberculosis, is caused by the pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Specific defense to tuberculosis/mycobacteriosis is dependent on the individual's ability to mount a proficient immune response. READ MORE

  3. 3. Plant pathogen defense: Signalling, resistance and cell death

    Author : Oskar N. Johansson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Pseudomonas; cell death; pathogens; plant defense; hypersensitive response; glycolipid; reactive oxygen species; blumeria graminis; erysiphe pisi;

    Abstract : Pathogenic microorganisms are present everywhere in nature and infect both animals and plants. Phytopathogenic microorganisms cause diseases on plants, and are responsible for crop loss amounting in the order billions of dollars annually. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quantum Chemical Studies of Enzymatic Reaction Mechanisms

    Author : Bianca Manta; Fahmi Himo; Lubomir Rulisek; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; density functional theory; B3LYP; enzyme; cluster approach; mechanism; zinc; manganese; cytosine deaminase; ω-transaminase; dinitrogenase reductase-activating glycohydrolase; dual substrate recognition; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : Computer modeling of enzymes is a valuable complement to experiments. Quantum chemical studies of enzymatic reactions can provide a detailed description of the reaction mechanism and elucidate the roles of various residues in the active site. READ MORE

  5. 5. Wiring Components of the Respiratory Chain : Modulation of the Respiratory Chain in Yeast and Bacteria

    Author : Jacob Schäfer; Peter Brzezinski; Dennis Winge; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cytochrome c oxidase; Electron transfer; Membrane protein; Ligand; Kinetics; Mechanism; Rcf1; Cytochrome c; Respiratory supercomplex; Cryo-electron microscopy; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : The enzyme complexes of the respiratory chain are organized in supramolecular assemblies, so-called respiratory supercomplexes. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, these supercomplexes consist of two copies of complex III (bc1 complex) and one or two copies of complex IV (cytochrome c oxidase, CytcO). READ MORE
