  1. 11. Aquaporins in Infection and Inflammation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Angelika Holm; Elena Vikström; Karl-Eric Magnusson; Vesa Loitto; Jonas Wetterö; Mikael Rhen; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The ability of eukaryotic cells to change their shape and to migrate directionally is highly dependent on active volume regulation in cells building up tissues as well as in individual cells. Transmembrane fluxes of water via specialized water channels, called aquaporins (AQPs), facilitate the changes of volume and shape, which additionally require a complex interplay between the plasma membrane and the cytoskeleton.

  2. 12. Plant major intrinsic proteins - functional implications of expression and localisation studies

    University dissertation from Per Kjellbom, Department of Plant Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Laure Fraysse; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plant biochemistry; immunolabelling; microarray; plasma membrane; aquaporins; plant; water; Växtbiokemi;

    Abstract : Plant water channels are members of the very old Major Intrinsic Protein (MIP) family, with representatives in bacteria, fungi, animals, and plants. The genome of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana contains 35 MIP genes. READ MORE

  3. 13. Osmoregulation at different stages of the yeast life cycle

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Cecilia Geijer; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; stress signalling; osmoregulation; aquaporins; cerevisiae; germination; germination; osmoregulation; aquaporins; cerevisiae;

    Abstract : The ability to adapt to changing and potentially harmful conditions in the surrounding environment is crucial for fitness and survival of all living cells; in particular unicellular organisms, since they are frequently exposed to stress factors such as heat, drought, nutritional starvation and toxic substances. The aim of this thesis is to determine how cells respond to osmotic and nutritional changes in the environment and how downstream targets of signalling cascades are regulated. READ MORE

  4. 14. Small-Scale Sample Handling for Studies of Liquid Crystals and Lipid-Based Soft Matter

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Gabriel Ohlsson; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fluorescence microscopy; nanocell; Microfluidics; aquaporins; liquid crystals; membrane transport; phase transitions; QCM-D; soft matter; lipid bilayer;

    Abstract : In the field of sensing in general and biosensing in particular, there is a growing need for integratingminiaturised senor elements in microfluidic systems. The advantages are several, some of which being that the consumption of, often very expensive, sample material can be reduced; sampleexchange can be optimized; sensor performance in terms of detection limits can be improved and phenomena occurring on a very small, and even single-molecule, scale can be studied.

  5. 15. Regulation and transport mechanisms of eukaryotic aquaporins

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Madelene Palmgren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Aquaporin; Membrane protein; Transport; Glycerol; Aquaglyceroporins; Regulation; arsenite;

    Abstract : Aquaporins are found in all kingdoms of life where they are involved in water homeostasis. They are small transmembrane water conducting channels that belong to the ancient protein family Major Intrinsic Proteins (MIP). READ MORE
