  1. 1. Offshore wind farms - ecological effects of noise and habitat alteration on fish

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

    Author : Mathias H. Andersson; Sören Nylin; Magnus Wahlberg; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; renewable energy; fish population; artificial reef; attraction vs. production; habitat structure; reef effect; FAD; bioacoustics; noise disturbance; fish behaviour; detection range; threshold; masking; fish communication and hearing; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Marin ekologi; zoologisk ekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : There are large gaps in our understanding how fish populations are affected by the anthropogenic noise and the alteration of habitat caused by the construction and operation of offshore wind farms. These issues are of great importance as the construction of offshore wind farms will increase all over the world in the near future. READ MORE

  2. 2. 2nd and 3rd generation electrodes for biosensors and biofuel cells

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : MNadeem Zafar; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; WrbA; pyranose dehydrogenase; cellobiose dehydrogenase; glucose dehydrogenase; direct electron transfer; Os-polymers; mediated electron transfer; single-walled carbon nanotubes; amperometric biosensor; biofuel cell; screen-printed electrodes; flow injection analysis; cascade reaction; bioanode;

    Abstract : The catalytic and electrochemical properties of tryptophan repressor-binding protein (WrbA), pyranose dehydrogenase (PDH), cellobiose dehydrogenase (CDH) and glucose dehydrogenase (GDH) on carbon electrodes were investigated using cyclic voltammetry and flow injection amperometry to construct biosensors and biofuel cell (BFC) anodes. WrbA has a catalytic FMN-containing domain whereas both PDH and GDH have a catalytic FAD-containing domains. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular studies of the γ-secretase complex : focus on genetic and pharmacological modulation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society

    Author : Johanna Wanngren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : γ-Secretase is a multi-subunit protease complex, composed of presenilin (PS1 or PS2), Nicastrin, Pen-2 and Aph-1, which generates the Alzheimer disease (AD) related 30-43 amino acid long amyloid β-peptide (Aβ). The complex is also crucial for important cell signaling, such as the Notch receptor pathway. READ MORE

  4. 4. Endoplasmic reticulum function in dendrites and dendritic spines of hippocampal neurons

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Ai Na Ng; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endoplasmic reticulum; primary culture; dendritic spines; live cell imaging; STIM1; carbachol; store-operated calcium entry; 3; familial Alzheimer s disease; 5-dihyroxyphenyglycine;

    Abstract : In the hippocampus, dendritic spines are compartmentalized postsynaptic micro-domains in the excitatory synapse. Subsets of bigger and mushroom-shaped hippocampal dendritic spines contain tubules and cisterns of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) that are connected to the soma and dendrites of the neuron. READ MORE

  5. 5. The structure of phenol hydroxylase and its relation to other flavoenzymes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Cristofer Enroth; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The NADPH-dependent flavin monooxygenase phenol hydroxylase catalyses the first step in the microbial degradation pathway of phenol and several phenol derivatives. It catalyses the introduction of a hydroxyl group in the ortho-position on the aromatic ring. READ MORE
