  1. 21. Engineering Transcriptional Systems for Cyanobacterial Biotechnology

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Daniel Camsund; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cyanobacteria; Synthetic biology; promoters; transcription; LacI; Gal4; Light-regulation; Chemistry with specialization in Microbial Chemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot mikrobiell kemi;

    Abstract : Cyanobacteria are solar-powered cell factories that can be engineered to supply us with renewable fuels and chemicals. To do so robust and well-working biological parts and tools are necessary. READ MORE

  2. 22. Cellobiose dehydrogenase on electrodes - an electrochemical biosensor for various analytes tunable by positive charges

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English Enzymes are nanometer sized work units made up of proteins. Each of the thousands of the existing enzymes are produced by the cells of every living organism. They carry out certain functions as putting molecules together, e. g. READ MORE

  3. 23. Engineering cytosolic acetyl-CoA metabolism in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Yiming Zhang; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; reverse engineering; flavodoxin; genomic DNA sequencing; ferredoxin; histone deacetylase; adaptive evolution; ferredoxin flavodoxin NADP reductase; pyruvate decarboxylase; citrate synthase; hexose transporter; yeast; mitochondria; aerobic growth; metabolic engineering.; acetyl-CoA; central carbon metabolism;

    Abstract : A Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain carrying deletions in all three pyruvate decarboxylase genes (also called Pdc negative yeast) represents a non-ethanol producing platform strain for biochemical production. However, it cannot grow on glucose as the sole carbon source due to the lack of cytosolic acetyl-CoA for lipid biosynthesis. READ MORE

  4. 24. Oligomerization of human and bacterial frataxin : Structural and functional studies

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Chemistry, Division of Biochemistry and Structural Biology

    Author : Mostafa Abdalkhalik; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017-02]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Frataxin; Friedreich’s ataxia; iron; reactive oxiden species; protein oligomerization; SAXS; EM; cross-linking; XAFS; nano- DSF;

    Abstract : Iron is a one of the critical elements in our life, being the most common element on earth, forming most of the inner and outer earth’s core. In our bodies iron is required in small amounts for biological processes to be performed. It is recommended to eat food containing iron to avoid common health problems such as anemia. READ MORE
