  1. 1. Coping with Stress : Regulation of the Caulobacter crescentus cell cycle in response to environmental cues

    Author : Kristina Heinrich; Kristina Jonas; Emanuele Biondi; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Caulobacter crescentus; bacteria; cell cycle; stress; filamentation; cell morphology; DNA replication; cell division; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : All organisms have to respond to environmental changes to maintain cellular and genome integrity. In particular, unicellular organisms like bacteria must be able to analyze their surroundings and rapidly adjust their growth mode and cell cycle program in response to environmental changes, such as changes in nutrient availability, temperature, osmolarity, or pH.

  2. 2. Energy Metabolic Stress Syndrome : Impact of Physical Activity of Different Intensity and Duration

    Author : Stefan Branth; Leif Hambraeus; Gunnar Ronquist; Mats Stridsberg; Lennart Kaijser; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medicine; energy; ATP; metabolism; nutrition; body-composition; physical-activity; stress; insulin-resistance; ion-pumps; intracellular swelling and -shrinkage; taurine; reactive oxygen species; Medicin;

    Abstract : All living cell functions require an ongoing supply of energy derived from carbohydrates, lipids and proteins with their own pathways of breakdown. All of them end up in the oxidation of reduced coenzymes, yielding chemically-bound energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). READ MORE

  3. 3. Stress response regulation and protein aggregate inheritance in Caulobacter crescentus

    Author : Frederic Dominique Schramm; Kristina Jonas; Franz Narberhaus; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; stress; protein aggregation; cellular aging; molecular chaperones; heat shock response; DnaK; sigma factor; suppressor genes; DNA replication; starvation; Caulobacter crescentus; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Many stress conditions a cell encounters threaten the continuation of basic biological processes ultimately endangering its survival. Heat shock and antibiotic exposure can lead to a sudden surge of protein un- and misfolding, while nutrient starvation directly causes a lack of energy and molecular building blocks. READ MORE

  4. 4. Coordination of two different genomes in response to light and stress

    Author : Louise Norén Lindbäck; Åsa Strand; Antony Dodd; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arabidopsis thaliana; chloroplast; cellular communication; tetrapyrrole; circadian clock; oxidative stress; light signalling; gene regulation; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : About 1.5 billion years ago, a photosynthetic bacteria was engulfed by a eukaryotic cell which initiated a symbiotic relationship and the evolution of the chloroplast as we know it today. The chloroplast has retained its own genome encoding for a number of proteins required for the function of the chloroplast. READ MORE

  5. 5. Chronic stress and intestinal barrier function: Implications for infection and inflammation in intensive salmon aquaculture

    Author : Henrik Sundh; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Intestinal barrier function; stress; cortisol; Ussing chamber; welfare; health; inflammation; neutrophils; cytokines; chronic stress;

    Abstract : Aquaculture is a fast growing food-producing sector worldwide. This has increased the awareness among the public as well as governments of the need to secure the welfare and health of farmed fish. Atlantic salmon is, in non-Asian countries, one of the most successful aquacultured species. READ MORE
