  1. 1. Plant type II NAD(P)H dehydrogenases : Structure, regulation and evolution of NDB proteins

    Author : Mengshu Hao; Molekylär cellbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arabidopsis; Ca2 ; Electron transport; NDH-2; NDB; pH; NADH; NADPH; Plant mitochondria; Potato; Type II NAD P H dehydrogenase;

    Abstract : In living organisms, respiration is a biological process degrading different carbon substrates, consuming O2, and releasing the carbon as CO2. Plants have several alternative enzymes that are involved in the respiratory processes, as compared to animals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Transport and release of insulin granules during biphasic insulin secretion

    Author : Rosita Ivarsson; Diabetes - öpatofysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fysiologi; Physiology; granule transport; Myosin 5a; Cyclic AMP; NADPH; Motor protein; Insulin secretion; Cytoskeleton;

    Abstract : Glucose-evoked insulin secretion exhibits two phases: The first phase represents exocytosis of insulin granules situated at the plasma membrane, whereas the second phase reflects insulin release from granules continuously recruited to the plasma membrane. This thesis investigates different aspects of phasic insulin secretion, with the specific aims to elucidate the possible contribution of insulin granule transport, as well as to study the influence of the nucleotides cAMP and NADPH to this process.

  3. 3. Metabolic engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae for polyhydroxybutyrate production

    Author : Kanokarn Kocharin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; S. cerevisiae; Acetyl-CoA; NADPH; Metabolic engineering; Polyhydroxybutyrate;

    Abstract : Establishing industrial biotechnology for the production of chemical compounds from the biosynthetic pathway has received a significant boost with the implementation of metabolic engineering. At present, metabolic engineering in Saccharomyces cerevisiae gains significant advantages of integration of knowledge acquired through a long history of use and data acquisition from novel –omics technologies hence enabling the development of a tailor-made S.

  4. 4. The Role of Reactive Oxygen Species in Animal Models of Autoimmunity

    Author : Malin Hultqvist; Immunologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mice; Phytol; ROS; NOX; NADPH; p47phox; Ncf1; EAE; inflammation; Arthritis; RA; MS; Rats; Autoimmunity;

    Abstract : Reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced by the phagocyte NADPH oxidase complex are important in the killing of invading pathogens. Lately, a role of ROS has been suggested in regulation of the immune system. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evaluation of precursor and cofactor engineering strategies influencing fatty acid metabolism in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Author : Alexandra Linda Bergman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; metabolic engineering; fatty acids; oleochemicals; NADPH; Sustainability; phosphoketolase; acetyl-CoA; transcription factor;

    Abstract : If humanity is to reduce the rate of climate change, it is essential that our societies switch to a more sustainable production of fuels and chemicals, which in turn depends on technological development. Oleochemical production via microbial catalysts – such as the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae – can use a considerably broader range of renewable substrates compared to the conventional production processes.
