  1. 1. Genetic Analysis of Fat Metabolism in Domestic Pigs and their Wild Ancestor

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Frida Berg; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Genetics; Pig; Quantitative Trait Locus; Fat deposition; FAT1; Linkage map; RH map; Comparative map; Backcross; Identical by Descent mapping; Brown adipose tissue; UCP1; Genetik;

    Abstract : The domestication of the pig began about 9 000 years ago and many of the existing domestic breeds have been selected for phenotypic traits like lean meat and fast growth. Domestic pigs are phenotypically very different from the ancestral wild boar that has adapted to survive in their natural environment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Milk Membrane Lipids - Dispersions, Emulsions and Interactions with Proteins

    University dissertation from Division of Food Technology, Lund University

    Author : Rianne Waninge; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Food and drink technology; Model milk membrane lipids; Emulsions; Vesicles; Cryo-TEM; Milk fat globule membrane; MFGM; Livsmedelsteknik;

    Abstract : Milk is a dilute aqueous dispersion with a complex mixture of proteins, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Milk membrane lipids are a part of the milk fat globule membrane (MFGM), which covers the fat globules. During dairy processing membrane material is released and surface structure features are altered. READ MORE

  4. 4. QTL Analysis in the Pig From the Identification of Quantitative Trait Loci to the Understanding of Molecular Mechanisms

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ellen Markljung; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Domestic pigs have become very different form the wild ancestors they originate from. Selection for muscle growth and meat quality has made the pig a good model for genetic studies of muscle development.The first part of this thesis presents a genome-wide scan for quantitative trait loci (QTL) in a cross between Landrace and Hampshire pigs.

  5. 5. Protein kinase STK25 is a regulator of hepatic lipid partitioning and whole body metabolism

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Manoj Amrutkar; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NAFLD; NASH; Liver lipid metabolism; Type 2 diabetes; STK25;

    Abstract : In past decade, type 2 diabetes (T2D) and associated metabolic complications have become a major global threat for human health with epidemic increase in incidence. Currently available treatments for T2D have several limitations and side effects making it difficult safely reach adequate metabolic control. READ MORE
