  1. 1. Engineering synthetic pathways for adipic acid biosynthesis

    Author : Jae Ho Shin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; in silico docking; lignocellulose; L-lysine; GC MS; cell factory; pathway engineering; cultivation; adipic acid; analytical chemistry; Corynebacterium glutamicum; muconic acid; benzoic acid; metabolic engineering;

    Abstract : Utilization of petroleum in consumer product manufacturing is causing irreversible environmental damage. Its impact on land, sea, and air calls for the development of more sustainable technologies based on the use of renewable materials such as lignocellulosic biomass and its conversion into platform chemicals.

  2. 2. Cytochrome P450 Enzymes in Bile Acid Biosynthesis and Fatty Acid Metabolism : Studies on Members of the Porcine CYP4A and CYP8B Subfamilies

    Author : Kerstin Lundell; Kjell Wikvall; Ronnie Hansson; Stefan Alexson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biochemistry; cytochrome P450; bile acids; fatty acids; CYP4A; CYP8B; genome; porcine; hyocholic acid; Farmaceutisk biokemi; Pharmaceutical biochemistry; Farmaceutisk biokemi; farmaceutisk biokemi; Pharmaceutical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The present investigation is devoted to studies on porcine members of the cytochrome P450 4A (CYP4A) and CYP8B1 subfamilies, which are involved in bile acid biosynthesis and fatty acid metabolism. Hyocholic acid is considered to fulfil the requirements for trihydroxy bile acids in the domestic pig (Sus scrofa) in the absence of cholic acid. READ MORE

  3. 3. Enzymes in different pathways of bile acid biosynthesis

    Author : Catrin Furster; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biosciences; Farmaceutisk biovetenskap; Biopharmacy; Biofarmaci; Biochemistry; biokemi;

    Abstract : Enzymes catalyzing side chain hydroxylations and dehydrogenation/isomerization in different pathways of bile acid biosynthesis were studied.Pig liver mitochondrial sterol 27-hydroxylase (CYP27A) was found to catalyze 24- and 25-hydroxylation of cholesterol in addition to the known 27-hydroxylation.

  4. 4. Magnesium Chelatase - a Key Enzyme in Chlorophyll Biosynthesis

    Author : Eva Axelsson; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Kemi; Chemistry; AAA-proteins; Chlorophyll biosynthesis; Magnesium chelatase;

    Abstract : The biosynthesis of chlorophylls is an important process in nature. The green pigments play a fundamental role in absorbing and transferring solar energy to the photosynthetic apparatus. READ MORE

  5. 5. Initiation of Protein Biosynthesis in Skeletal Muscles at Feeding

    Author : Britt-Marie Iresjö; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Protein synthesis; Translation initiation; amino acids; Snat 2; MHC2A; IGF-I;

    Abstract : Background and aim. Artificial nutrition by intravenous feeding has for decades indicated less than optimal support of whole-body protein metabolism and balance during some treatment conditions. READ MORE
