  1. 1. Thiol redox state in apoptosis : physiological and toxicant modulation

    Author : Stefan Nobel; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : Apoptosis is a physiological type of cell death used to regulate the number of cells during development and im adult organs. However, apoptosis can also be inappropriately activated or inhibited under pathological conditions. One of the critical mechanisms of apoptosis is the activity of cysteine proteases belonging to the caspase family. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of Motion Sickness on Human Thermoregulatory Mechanisms

    Author : Gerard Nobel; Ola Eiken; Nigel A.S. Taylor; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Motion Sickness; autonomic thermoregulation; behavioural thermoregulation; hypothermia; acetylcholine; histamine; Physiology; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : The presented studies were performed to investigate the effects of motion sickness (MS) on human autonomic and behavioural thermoregulatory mechanisms during cold stress and in a thermoneutral environment. The roles of histaminergic and cholinergic neuron systems in autonomic thermoregulation and MS-dependent dysfunction of autonomic thermoregulation were studied using a histamine-receptor blocker, dimenhydrinate (DMH), and a muscarine-receptor blocker, scopolamine (Scop).

  3. 3. Polynomial Hulls and Envelopes of Holomorphy

    Author : Lennart S. Nobel; Burglind Jöricke; Nikolay Shcherbina; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Cantor sets; polynomial hulls; envelopes of holomorphy; continuity principle; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK; matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : The notion of polynomial hulls of compact subsets of complex Euclidean space plays a crucial role for approximation of holomorphic functions by polynomials - a topic which has many applications. Despite an abstract characterization of polynomial hulls in terms of currents, given by Duval and Sibony, it is often very difficult even for special classes of sets to decide whether the polynomial hull is trivial (i.

  4. 4. Radiosynthesis of Perfluoroalkyl Substances : Chemical analysis, uptake, distribution, and partitioning studies

    Author : Maria Sundström; Åke Bergman; John Butenhoff; Stefan Nobel; Johan Eriksson; Christopher Lau; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are widely utilized manmade chemicals. Their properties have made them highly appreciated in a variety of industrial and consumer product applications, including fire-fighting foams, hydraulic fluids, as well as in cookware and food contact papers.

  5. 5. Constructing Invisible Hands : Market Technocrats in Sweden 1880–2000

    Author : Gabriel Söderberg; Maths Isacson; Lars Magnusson; Janken Myrdal; Deirdre McCloskey; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Markets; technocrats; central banks; agricultural science; Nobel prize; economics and society; asymmetric information; Social Democracy; neoliberalism; social engineering; market history; market engineering; market design; performativity; Ekonomisk historia; Economic History;

    Abstract : Dominant market theories analyze markets as ahistorical entities without the need for professional groups that manage crucial functions within them. This thesis, in contrast, approaches markets as historical systems that develop over time and that can be constituted in many different ways because of different historical trajectories. READ MORE
