  1. 1. Biomimetic surfaces : Preparation, characterization and application

    Author : Annika Borgh; Bo Liedberg; Fredrik Höök; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Self-assembled monolayers; biomimetic surfaces; phosphates; antifreeze; surface spectroscopy; Molecular physics; Molekylfysik;

    Abstract : I denna avhandling beskrivs tillverkning, karaktärisering och tillämpning av ett antal biomimetiska ytor. Biomimetik är att härma naturen och grundtanken är att titta på hur naturen löst liknande problemställningar. READ MORE

  2. 2. Metabolic engineering: Approaches Towards Improved Stress Tolerance in Microorganisms and Plants

    Author : Niklas Holmberg; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Vitreoscilla hemoglobin; Transgenic; Solanum tuberosum; Salt tolerance; Nicotiana tabaccum; Metabolic Engineering; Freezing tolerance; Choline dehydrogenase; Antifreeze protein; Bifunctional enzyme; Biochemistry; Metabolism; Biokemi; metabolism; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : By using metabolic engineering it is now possible to introduce new biosynthetic pathways or redirect already existing ones in a wide range of pro- and eukaryotic organisms. This thesis mainly addresses some approaches using metabolic engineering directed towards enhancing the stress tolerance in microorganisms and higher plants. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biotic and abiotic stress in microorganisms and plants: Some Mechanisms of Stress and Programmed Cell Death. Genetic Engineering Approaches Towards Improved Stress Tolerance

    Author : Per-Johan Meijer; Tillämpad biokemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biotic stress; plants; microorganisms; stress tolerance; antifreeze protein; proline; programmed cell death; systemic aquired resistance; Biochemistry; metabolism; Biokemi; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; abiotic stress;

    Abstract : Various forms of stress, such as biotic and abiotic stress, were studied in microorganisms and plants to learn more about the underlying mechanisms of such stress and potential genetic engineering strategies towards stress tolerance. An antifreeze protein from winter flounder, expressed in E. READ MORE

  4. 4. Physiological and biochemical aspects of vegetable processing. A case study on carrots

    Author : Federico Gómez Galindo; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik; mild blanching; antifreeze proteins; cell wall; cold acclimation; carrots; metabolism;

    Abstract : The aim of the present study was to enhance our understanding of vegetables as living organisms, interacting dynamically with the environment, and to explore the possible influence of metabolic changes on subsequent processing operations. Growing conditions, harvesting and handling in the packing house and storage conditions are key events leading to a defined “physiological status” of the vegetable that is going to be consumed as a fresh product or a processed product.

  5. 5. Synthesis of inositolphosphoglycans found in Trypanosoma cruzi and development of novel carbohydrate monomolecular layers

    Author : Markus Hederos; Robert Madsen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : In this thesis, synthetic carbohydrate chemistry has been utilized to contribute to the fundamental understanding of three biological relevant areas. These include parasite cell-membrane glycoconjugates, protein-resistant surfaces and antifreeze glycoproteins. READ MORE
