    Abstract : Internal fertilization usually implies that a spermatozoon, with intact attributes for zygote formation, passes all hurdles during its transport through the female genitalia and reaches the oocyte. During this journey, millions to billions of other spermatozoa perish. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effect of elevated pCO2 and environmental oxazepam on the behavior and physiology of teleost fish

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Laura E. Vossen; Svante Winberg; Robert Gerlai; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fish; GABA; CO2; ocean acidification; pharmaceutical pollution; oxazepam;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis investigated the effect of two aquatic pollutants on the behavior and physiology of teleost fish: i) elevated concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the context of ocean acidification and ii) low concentrations of the anxiolytic pharmaceutical oxazepam in the context of pharmaceutical pollution.Anthropogenic emissions of CO2 are lowering the pH of the oceans.

  3. 3. Molecular Mechanisms of Resin Acids and Their Derivatives on the Opening of a Potassium Channel

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Nina Ottosson; Fredrik Elinder; David Engblom; Bertil Hille; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Voltage-gated ion channels play fundamental roles in excitable cells, such as neurons, where they enable electric signaling. Normally, this signaling is well controlled, but brain damage, alterations in the ionic composition of the extracellular solution, or dysfunctional ion channels can increase the electrical excitability thereby causing epilepsy.

  4. 4. Kinetic Models in Life Science — Contributions to Methods and Applications

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Joachim Almquist; [2017]

    Abstract : Kinetic models in life science combine mathematics and biology to answer questions from areas such as cell biology, physiology, biotechnology, and drug development. The idea of kinetic models is to represent a biological system by a number of biochemical reactions together with mathematical expressions for the reaction kinetics, i.e. READ MORE
