  1. 1. Temperature effects on UV-B induced DNA damage and repair in plants and a lichen

    University dissertation from Markus Paulsson, Sölvegatan 35, SE-223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Markus Paulsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tobacco Nicotiana tabacum ; Temperature; Subarctic; Plants; Photoreactivation; Photolyase; Lichen; DNA damage; Cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers CPD ; 6-4 Photoproducts; Cladonia arbuscula ssp. mitis; Ultraviolet radiation; UV-B; Vaccinium vitis-idaea; Plant genetics; Växtgenetik;

    Abstract : All living organisms have DNA and since DNA is essential to life it must be repaired when damaged. UV radiation is one of the major DNA damaging agents, which photosynthetic organisms cannot avoid. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulation of Proton Coupled Electron Transfer from Amino Acids in Artificial Model Systems: A Mechanistic Study

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Martin Sjödin; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; Proton Coupled Electron Transfer; Tyrosine; Tryptophan; Electron Transfer; Hydrogen bond; Photosystem II; Proton transfer; Radical protein; Fysikalisk kemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Physical chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : Amino acid radicals are key redox intermediates in several natural enzymes including Cytochrome c peroxidase, DNA photolyase, ribonucletide reductase, cytochrome c oxidase and photosystem II. Electron transfer from amino acids is often coupled to deprotonation and this thesis concerns the coupling of electron transfer from tyrosine and tryptophan to trisbipyridineruthenium(III) with deprotonation in model complexes.

  3. 3. Theoretical studies on photophysics and photochemistry of DNA

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Yuejie Ai; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Theoretical chemistry Quantum chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Teoretisk kemi Kvantkemi; SRA - Molecular Bioscience; SRA - Molekylär biovetenskap;

    Abstract : Theoretical studies on biological systems like nucleic acid and protein have been widely developed in the past 50 years and will continue to be a topic of interest in forefronts of natural science. In addition to experimental science, computational modeling can give useful information and help us to understand biochemical issues at molecular, atomic and even electronic levels. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of increased UV-B radiation on the lichen Cladonia arbuscula spp. mitis: UV-absorbing pigments and DNA damage

    University dissertation from Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Lund University

    Author : Roberta Buffoni Hall; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Systematic botany; taxonomy; morphology; phytogeography; chemotaxonomy. Physiology of nonvascular plants; kemotaxonomi. Växters fysiologi inte kärlväxter .; Systematisk botanik; taxonomi; morfologi;

    Abstract : Lichens, a form of symbiosis between a fungal and a photosynthetic partner, are believed to be a group that evolved early in the history of terrestrial life. As a consequence, they probably experienced higher ultraviolet (UV) radiation fluxes than at present. READ MORE
