  1. 1. Evolutionary genomics of symbiotic fungi

    University dissertation from Microbial Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Balaji Rajashekar; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein family; Symbiosis; Paxillus involutus; Laccaria bicolor; Hydrophobin; Fungi; Ectomycorrhizae; Evolution; Comparative Genomics; Basidiomycetes;

    Abstract : Ectomycorrhizae is a mutualistic association between roots of woody plants and a diverse range of soil fungi. The fungi exchange soil derived mineral nutrients for photosynthetic sugars from the host plant. The mycorrhizal symbioses are commonly found in all forest ecosystems and have a major ecological and economical importance. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evolutionary Genomics of Nematode-Trapping Fungi

    University dissertation from Lund University, Dept. of Biology

    Author : Tejashwari Meerupati; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nematode-trapping fungi; Comparative Genomics; Comparative Transcriptomics; Differential gene expression; Gene duplication; Parasitism; Protein family expansion.;

    Abstract : Nematode-trapping fungi are ubiquitous, soil-living organisms with the ability to infect and kill nematodes. These fungi have developed specialized infection structures for the capture of nematodes. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Gene Repertoire of G protein-coupled Receptors New Genes, Phylogeny, and Evolution

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Þóra Kristín Bjarnadóttir; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmacology; Bioinformatics; Evolution; GPCR; Phylogeny; Farmakologi; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Pharmacological research; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Farmakologisk forskning;

    Abstract : The superfamily of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) is one of the largest protein families of mammalian genomes and can be divided into five main families; Glutamate, Rhodopsin, Adhesion, Frizzled, and Secretin. GPCRs participate in most major physiological functions, contributing to the fact that they are important targets in drug discovery. READ MORE

  4. 4. Frontotemporal dementia - symptoms and brain pathology

    University dissertation from Department of Psychogeriatrics, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Author : Maria Landqvist; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; genetics; neuropsychiatric symptoms; protein pathology; clinical diagnosis; neuropathology; biomarkers; Frontotemporal dementia;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Frontotemporal demens (FTD) är en grupp av demenssjukdomar som främst drabbar hjärnans pannlober och främre tinninglober. Gemensamt för FTD-sjukdomarna är en fortskridande nervcellsförlust och förtvining av framför allt hjärnbarken. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular genetics of B- and T-lymphocyte development

    University dissertation from Umeå : Medicinsk biovetenskap

    Author : Ingela Wikström; Umeå universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; lymphocyte development; Dmu protein; transcription factor; bHLH; E2-2; T cell; B cell; marginal zone; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Clinical genetics Medical genetics; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Klinisk genetik Medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : Lymphocytes are essential for the generation of specific immunity. Development of B cells in the bone marrow and T cells in the thymus have several analogous features, and are tightly regulated processes. Even though there is an increasing amount of information concerning lymphopoiesis, a lot of questions remain. READ MORE
