  1. 1. Robust intersection of hexahedral meshes and triangle meshes with applications in finite volume methods

    Author : Frida Svelander; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; triangle-hex intersection; overlapping triangles; degenerate mesh; volume fraction; area fraction; cut cell; conjugated heat transfer.; degenerate mesh; volume fraction; area fraction; conjugated heat transfer.; cut cell; overlapping triangles;

    Abstract : The topic of this thesis is the intersection of a structured hexahedral grid andone or more triangle meshes. The interest in the problem has arisen in connection with a finite volume method for simulation of conjugated heat transfer. READ MORE

  2. 2. Apoptosis induced by a human milk protein complex. Cellular and structural studies in tumour cells and bacteria

    University dissertation from Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Anders Håkansson; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; serology; Immunology; nuclear uptake; caspases; mitochondria; S. pneumoniae; alpha-lactalbumin; milk; breast-feeding; Apoptosis; tumour cells; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi;

    Abstract : Human milk contains a vast array of bioactive molecules, with nutritional and protective functions. This thesis describes the effects of a human milk protein complex, MAL, on tumour cells and bacteria. During our studies on the anti-adhesive properties of human milk we observed that a milk fraction killed tumour cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. Functional properties of galectin-3. Beyond the sugar binding

    University dissertation from Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Adriana Lepur; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; galectin-3; galectin-1; M1 macrophage; M2 macrophage; self-association; fluorescence anisotropy; citrus pectin; galactomannane;

    Abstract : Contemporary diseases like diabetes, asthma, atherosclerosis etc. are marked by chronic inflammation, often supported by the activity of different macrophages. Proteins from galectin family were found to contribute to disease pathophysiology. Therefore, there is an intensive interest in understanding different galectin functions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Group B streptococcus capsular polysaccharide - Cholera toxin B subunit conjugate vaccine for mucosal immunisation : development and preclinical evaluation of experimental conjugate vaccines

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Xuzhuang Shen; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Group B streptococci (GBS) can colonize the female genital and rectal tracts and cause invasive infection in susceptible newborns. An optimally effective GBS vaccine should induce both mucosal and systemic immunity. READ MORE

  5. 5. Specific surface area of some minerals commonly found in granite

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Isabelle E. Dubois; Maria E. Malmström; Bo Strömberg; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Granite; Mineral; Surface area; BET; Sorption; Particle size;

    Abstract : The specific surface area, determined by the BET method, is a parameter often used to scale results of mineral studies of surface reactions in terms of rate and capacity to the field scale. Such extrapolations of results from small-scale laboratory experiments to the field-scale are important within many environmental applications. READ MORE
