  1. 1. Evolutionary genomics of symbiotic fungi

    University dissertation from Microbial Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Balaji Rajashekar; [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. Evolution of cellular complexity and other remarkable features in Gemmataceae Complex bacterial lineages defy prokaryotic trends

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mayank Mahajan; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular evolution; Planctomycetes; Gemmataceae; functional organization; signalling; protein interaction; peptidoglycan; membranes; cell division; radiation tolerance; Pfam; SCOP; comparative genomics; protein architecture; domain shuffling and orthologous clustering; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Evolution; Biology with specialization in Molecular Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Bacteria of the family Gemmataceae belong the phylum Planctomycetes and are remarkable because of their complex cellular architectures, previously considered to be traits exclusive to eukaryotes. This thesis provides clues to the atypical cell envelope, the enhanced radiotolerance and the amazing cellular complexity of these bacteria. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evolutionary Genomics of Nematode-Trapping Fungi

    University dissertation from Lund University, Dept. of Biology

    Author : Tejashwari Meerupati; [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

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Frontotemporal dementia - symptoms and brain pathology

    University dissertation from Department of Psychogeriatrics, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Author : Maria Landqvist; [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 : Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is the clinical term for a heterogeneous group of dementia disorders with symptoms emerging from frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). FTD encompasses the behavioural variant (bvFTD) and the progressive aphasias: progressive non-fluent aphasia (PNFA) and semantic dementia (SD). READ MORE
