  1. 1. Alkaliphilic Bacillus species and an alkaline active lipolytic enzyme

    University dissertation from Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Virginia Vargas Calle; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biotechnology; soda lakes; alkaliphilic Bacillus sp.; lipolytic enzyme; Bacillus bogoriensis; Bacillus halodurans; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : The Great Rift Valley running through Eastern Africa contains a large number of soda lakes. These unique lakes constitute among the most stable alkaline environments with a dense and varied population of microorganisms. Such microorganisms are invariable alkaliphiles and are considered to be a promising source of enzymes with unique features. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lipase-Catalysed Lipid Modifications in Supercritical Carbon Dioxide

    University dissertation from Department of Food Technology, Lund University

    Author : Helga Gunnlaugsdottir; [1997]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; immobilisation support; enzymes; pressure; phase behaviour; flow rate; process parameters; supercritical carbon dioxide; Lipase; lipids; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik;

    Abstract : The production of ethyl esters (EE) from ethanol and cod-liver oil by an immobilised lipase in supercritical carbon dioxide (SCCO2) is described. This reaction results in a complex mixture of lipid components consisting of triglycerides, diglycerides, monoglycerides and ethyl esters. READ MORE

  3. 3. Digestion and absorption of galactolipids

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gastro-enterology; Pancreatic lipase related proteins.; Pancreatic lipase; Monogalactosyldiglyceride; Lipolytic enzymes; Galactolipids; Essential fatty acids; Digestion; Digalactosyldiglyceride; Colipase; Chylomicron; Bile salt stimulated lipase; Carboxyl ester lipase; Gastroenterologi; Proteins; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi; Lipids; steroids; membranes; Lipider; steroider; mebran;

    Abstract : Galactolipids: digalactosyldiglyceride (DGalDG), monogalactosyldiglyceride (MGalDG) and sulfoquinovosyldiglyceride (SQDG) are the major lipid components in thylakoid membranes of chloroplasts i.e. the site of photosynthesis in plants. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hormone-Sensitive Lipase and Protein Kinase B; Molecular characterization in testis, adipose tissue and pancreatic beta cells

    University dissertation from Section for Molecular Signalling, CMB, P.O. Box 94, S-221 00 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Lena Stenson; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; signal transduction; pancreas; beta cells; adipocyte; insulin; Akt; protein kinase B; spermatogenesis; cholesterol esterase; hormone-sensitive lipase; testis; cAMP; Proteins; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi;

    Abstract : Hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) and protein kinase B (PKB) are enzymes that in different ways are associated with lipid metabolism. While HSL is the well-known lipolytic enzyme responsible for hydrolysis of stored triacylglycerols in adipose tissue, PKB is a recently identified serine/threonine protein kinase, ubiquitously expressed and involved in signal transduction pathways induced by insulin and growth factors.

  5. 5. Environmental, nutritional and endocrine regulation of metabolic processes in fish

    University dissertation from Section for Molecular Signalling, CMB, P.O. Box 94, S-221 00 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Andreas Kullgren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lipids; metabolism; temperature; fasting; growth hormone; ghrelin; NMR; metabolomics; Salmo salar; Oncorhynchus mykiss;

    Abstract : Due to seasonal variations in temperature and food availability, fish in temperate regions should be able to make metabolic adjustments to ensure that enough energy is available for the maintenance of basal processes. The major aim of this thesis was to elucidate how the physiology and lipid metabolism of salmonid fish is affected by temperature and food availability, and to clarify aspects of the endocrine control of lipid metabolism.
