  1. 1. Suspensions of finite-size rigid particles in laminar and turbulent flows

    Author : Walter Fornari; Luca Brandt; Jérémie Bec; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Suspensions; complex fluids; sedimentation; rheology; turbulence;

    Abstract : Dispersed multiphase flows occur in many biological, engineering and geophysical applications. Understanding the behavior of suspensions is a difficult task. In the present work, we numerically study the behavior of suspensions of finite-size rigid particles in different flows. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tropomyosin in Normal and Malignant Cells and the Action of Picropodophyllin on the Microfilament and Microtubule Systems

    Author : Li-Sophie Zhao Rathje; Uno Lindberg; Roger Karlsson; J. Victor Small; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tropomyosin; Actin; Picropodophyllin; Tubulin; Cell motility; Cancer; Cell biology; Cellbiologi; cellbiologi; Cellbiology;

    Abstract : Cell motility is a fundamental process, enabling cells to migrate, for instance during embryogenesis, tissue repair and defense. Force is generated by two protein systems, which also participate in cell proliferation, control macromolecular and organelle distribution and determine the fine structure of the cell interior.

  3. 3. Water diffusion and free volume in hydrophilic polymers

    Author : Charlotte Trotzig; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; free volume; self-diffusion; degree of crystallinity; glass transition temperature; tensile storage modulus; surface tension; isotherm; HPMC; PEO; water; triacetin; clay; Macromolecular chemistry; dynamic mechanical analysis; Fysikalisk kemi; differential scanning calorimetry; nuclear magnetic resonance; positron annihilation; Makromolekylär kemi;

    Abstract : During moisture uptake in polymers, the diffusion of the water molecules is believed to occur via unoccupied voids. These voids are called free volume cavities and their sizes are continuously altered when the moisture content in the polymer is enhanced. READ MORE

  4. 4. Glutathione in the brain. Studies on efflux and possible implications in neurotoxicity

    Author : Camilla Wallin; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glutathione; excitotoxicity; hypoxia-ischemia; brain; rat; anoxia-aglycemia; g-glutamyl transpeptidase; glutamate; NMDA; oxidative stress; mitochondria; amino acids;

    Abstract : Neuronal cell death in acute insults such as stroke, trauma and epilepsy involves overactivation of glutamate receptors, calcium influx and increased formation of potentially toxic reactive oxygen species. Glutathione is a key component in the antioxidant defense system against reactive oxygen species. READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic Traits Beneficial for Xylose Utilization by Recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Author : Oskar Bengtsson; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; metabolic engineering; fermentation; xylose; ethanol; promoter; xylose reductase; cofactor; validation; transcriptome;

    Abstract : Saccharomyces cerevisiae ferments hexoses in lignocellulosic hydrolysates under anaerobic conditions with high rates and ethanol yields. However, S. cerevisiae is naturally unable to utilize the pentose fraction of the hydrolysates. Xylose is the most abundant pentose sugar, and although recombinant S. READ MORE
