  1. 1. Design and characterization of direct electron transfer based biofuel cells including tests in cell cultures

    University dissertation from Malmö : Malmö : Malmö University. Faculty of Health and Society, Malmö University. Biomedical Sciences (BMV)

    Author : Peter Lamberg; Malmö University.; Malmö University.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Sciences; biofuel cell; enzymatic fuel cell; direct electron transfer; cellobiose dehydrogenase; biocompatibility; enzyme kinetics; cell culture;

    Abstract : Enzymatic fuel cells (EFCs) are bioelectronic devices based on redox enzymes, which convert chemical energy into electrical energy via biochemical reactions. A major difficulty to overcome is to successfully connect (using e.g., immobilization) the enzymes to the electrode surface. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dynamic regulation of DNA methylation in human T-cell biology

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Antonio Lentini; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : T helper cells play a central role in orchestrating immune responses in humans. Upon encountering a foreign antigen, T helper cells are activated followed by a differentiation process where the cells are specialised to help combating the infection. READ MORE

  3. 3. Flexible and transparent biological electric power sources based on nanostructured electrodes

    University dissertation from Malmö university, Faculty of Health and Society

    Author : Elena González Arribas; Malmö University.; Malmö University.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; Biocatalysis; Biological fuel cells; Biosupercapacitors; Flexible biodevice; Solar biosupercapacitor; Enzymatic fuel cell; Indium tin oxide; Conducting polymer; Non-invasive; Smart contact lens; Sciences;

    Abstract : The thesis is focused on biological electric power sources based on transparent and flexible nanostructured electrodes. The power generating part of these biodevices was decorated with different biomaterials electrically wired to transparent electrodes based on either thin gold films, or indium tin oxide. READ MORE

  4. 4. Blue copper proteins as bioelements for bioelectronic devices

    University dissertation from Malmö university

    Author : Olga Aleksejeva; Malmö University.; Malmö University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; Blue copper protein; Multicopper oxidase; Direct electron transfer; Oxygen bioelectroreduction; Enzymatic fuel cell; Biosupercapacitor;

    Abstract : This thesis is focused on bioelements for biological electric power sources, specifically, on blue copper proteins with and without an intrinsic biocatalytic activity, i.e. ability to reduce oxygen directly to water. These proteins, viz. READ MORE

  5. 5. Improving the biocatalyst. Engineering of fungal oxidoreductases and thin-film electrodes for improvement of membraneless biofuel cells and carbohydrate biosensors

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Roberto Ortiz; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cellobiose dehydrogenase; pyranose dehydrogenase; biosensor; enzymatic biofuel cell; carbon nanotubes; gold nanoparticles; direct electron transfer; flow-injection analysis; diazonium salts; self-assembled monolayers;

    Abstract : This thesis presents investigations for the improvement of electrical contact and catalytical properties of two fungal redox enzymes, cellobiose dehydrogenase (CDH) and pyranose dehydrogenase (PDH), with electrodes and the use of the prepared electrodes as carbohydrate biosensors and in enzymatic biofuel cells. The performance of enzyme modified electrodes can be improved in two ways, by modifying the bioelement or by modifying the electrode. READ MORE
